Tamanique Waterfalls and El Tunco Beach
Tamanique Waterfalls are located 30 minutes away from El Tunco. There are 2 small pools where you can jump into the water. There are two big waterfalls where you can swim in the fresh and clean water from the mountains. To get here there is a short 40min hike down and then to go back its a very steep 1 hour, very hot and difficult hike, specially during rainy season. The 4th and last waterfall might not be accesible sometimes due to high risk of sliding down in rainy season. After the activity we go to El Tunco for lunch (food not included).We spend around 1 hour in El Tunco Area and then we take you back to your hotel at around 4:30
Pickup is at your hotel at 8:00 if you are in San Salvador or at 9am if you are in El Tunco. Then we drive to Tamanique town, there are bathrooms here and a convenience store to get water and snacks. We walk aprox 40 minutes to the first pool, you can jump here as many times as you like, the second pool is right next to this one. Both pools have a height of around 3 to 8 meters, jumping is optional. The Natural waterslide is here as well, and if the current is good you can slide here.
