Who would have ever thought of having such a character from the other side of the world establishing his family and business in this little piece of surfing paradise called Playa El Tunco. He’s from Belgium and first visited El Salvador back in 2005, here he met his wife, and then he moved and opened his hotel in El Tunco in 2007. Now is more than a hotel, it’s a restaurant, a bar, and a place where El Tunco community gathers together to discuss various topics after all the restaurants and bars are closed during the week.
Hotel Mopelia offers rooms for all kind of budgets, from the classic basic rooms with a fan that share a bathroom to a family suite, and in between, comfortable rooms with private bathrooms and private terraces. The property has a large beaufitul garden inunded with different flowers and different trees, in the middle of the micro jungle just like an espejismo lays a swimming pool.
One thing that is known is that Belgiams have amazing beer, and a particularity is that Mopelia’s bar is the only bar in El Tunco, and probably in all the beaches in the country, that offers more than 40 different types of beers from around the world.
The restaurant offer breakfast and dinner service. And well known options are available at dinner time, such as hamburgers and pasta. And each night there is a special for dinner. And well, desserts is a different story, for those who have not heard about belguiams waffles, this ones are a must, topped with vanilla ice cream.
