How close are the beaches from the city?

How close are the beaches from the airport? Are they worth visiting? Is there any diving? This will be during the month of December.

From the city San Salvador you can go down to La Libertad - it is about 35 kms and maybe a bit crowded for going to the beach (there are restaurants along a boardwalk), and if you go 10 kms more to the west, you can go, for example, to El Tunco, which has a bit of a more international vibe (as it is visited by many foreigners).

Note that the airport is NOT near the capital San Salvador... it is about 45 kms. away.

From the airport, you can also go to Rancho Estero y Mar http://www.esteroymar.com/ N13.379418,W89.08362 (about 25 kms - because you have to go in a round-about way to reach it from the airport) or Las Hojas Resort http://www.lashojasresort.com/ or a bit further, Costa del Sol beach (places like Bahia de El Salvador N13.292984,W88.896106

I have put many other web sites of El Salvador here:

Beaches in El Salvador are not for diving, as there are strong waves. (There is some diving at Los Cobanos, Sonsonate and at lakes like Ilopango)

The west coast beaches are the closest surfing beaches and are just 35 mins drive from San Salvador . The area around El Sunzal is very popular with surfers and tourists . The west coast scenery is spectacular.Enjoy your visit
