El Tunco, El Salvador, nestled in Central America, beckons with its unique charm. Here, you'll find yourself mere steps away from the Pacific Ocean, boasting consistent surf breaks suitable for both beginners and advanced surfers alike. El Tunco is a coastal gem where the enchantment of both sunrise and sunset graces the skies daily. 



Balancé offers a truly unique experience for travelers. The Tree Suites, Element Suites, and the Hidden Villa have been meticulously designed to provide an unparalleled setting for unforgettable tropical adventures. While these rooms are occasionally reserved for private retreats, for the majority of the year, they are available for booking by anyone looking to embark on their own personalized journey. With spacious and elegant interiors, complete with premium bedding linens and towels, guests can enjoy their stay in absolute comfort and style. Situated waterfront to the surf and just steps away from the charming cafés and restaurants of the town, Balancé provides the perfect blend of convenience and tranquility. Moreover, being strategically located away from the bustling bars and music venues ensures that guests can fully immerse themselves in the peaceful ambiance of this surf sanctuary.



Start your mornings with rejuvenating yoga sessions in Balancè's stunning open-air studio, fully equipped for your practice. In the evenings, gather on the yoga deck amidst fireflies, serenaded by the rhythmic crashing of waves nearby.. Throughout the week, immerse yourself in nature's wonders, whether exploring the land or diving into the ocean's depths. And in moments of reprieve, indulge in tranquil relaxation by the poolside or sway gently in a hammock.

Sara Chaplin

My journey with yoga began shortly after my college years, and from the moment I started, it resonated deeply with me. The practice filled a void I had long wanted to address, offering me a supportive environment to release tension, alleviate stress, and reconnect with my authentic self. Since 2004, I've dedicated myself to a continuous exploration of yoga, delving into both its physical and philosophical aspects.

What is the daily itinerary?

We’re very flexible when it comes to schedules and itineraries. We have two yoga classes scheduled a day, in the morning and early evening, but of course all are optional. The rest of the day and evening is completely up to you, we’ll be there to offer up ideas for the group!

Frequently 
Asked 
Questions

Can I share a room with someone else?

We’d be happy to arrange this, although most people joining us on their own seem to like their own room. We normally put people in a shared room if they’re traveling together and request it specifically – friends, siblings, couples etc. However, if we do get requests from two people traveling on their own who would like to share, we can put you two in a shared room. Please contact us if this is your preference.
