La Libertad, Punta Roca

 

The Puerto de La Libertad was founded in 1927 and it is the first port of El Salvador, back in the 50’s it was an international tourist destination; its major attractive was Punta Roca’s wave, back in the days was know as the Latin American J Bay, it was visited mostly by nomad surfers that adventure themselves looking for perfect waves here in the south.

One of these surfers was Bob Rotherham, who has established now in the town of La Libertad, he is a North American nationalized as a Salvadorian. Joined by his son, the Quiksilver pro surfer Jimmy Rotherham they administrate the surf camp and restaurant Punta Roca, which has decades of history and it’s a must be visited.

The port and its infrastructure was damaged back in the civil war last decade; and now, with the help of the government, the municipal table and different people interested in the tourist development of this part of La Libertad it forms part of an ambitious project which is now a few steps of being totally reconstruct.

The dock has become an icon the habitants are proud of. The port is mainly used for craft fishing because of history and tradition. Taking a walk on the dock market is a great way to enjoy the fresh seafood being sold. You can also find hotels, resorts, restaurants and bars at the beach shore where you can enjoy the local gastronomy and exquisite preparation based on the different types of seafood in the zone.
