El Tunco is a tiny little surf village - even smaller than Los Cobanos but their is way more life and backpackers.  We stayed at a hostel called La Guitarra.  It was a bit pricier than we normally go for, but we were there for 5 nights and it was right on the beach.  We had our own Cabana with a private bathroom and a nice bed and a little patio with a hammock. The common area had a kitchen, a pool table and ping pong table, and there was a tv room.  It was very nice. We went to the bigger town and bought a bunch of groceries an took full advantage of the kitchen and saved some money. 

The waves here are awesume - 5ft on a bad day. We didn't rent any surf boards because they were expensive and the lessons were expensive too, so we rented boogie boards instead and still had a blast.  I did borrow some guys board though, but it was really tiny and I could only get on my knees.

We spent New Years here and had a lot of fun with some people we met.  It wasn't that eventful though, just some quality drinking games, a bottle of rum, and a bit of drunkin' dancing.  I would say I fully embaressed Rikki with my dancing skills.  I totally missed the countdown - all of a sudden Rikki grabbed my face and kissed me and before I knew it, I had missed New Years.  We "danced" for another hour or so and then we stumbled home and I passed out.  Apparently I was so passed out that I didn't even wake up when Rikki was jumping up and down on the bed.  That's the problem with me and alcohol - it makes me sleep.  I think I'm much more fun sober.  Rikki woke up much more hungover than I did though, but maybe I just know not to baby my hangover and get out of bed.  The trick is to get up and have a cold shower and a bit of a walk and you're good as new.

We loved El Tunco - we spent our days playing in the waves and covering eachother in sand and making drip castles.
