The Libertad Pier
La Libertad pier dates back to 1870. Originally it served as a port for pirates who later established a community near Mizata (located on kilometer 87 of the Coastal Highway). Over the years, the structure deteriorated and was replaced by a modern structure, which received a major make-over in 2003. This pier is the place to buy the “catch of the day” from local fishermen.
The seafood on offer includes lobster, blue crabs (popularly known as “crabs”), Fish of all sizes (including tasty snapper), squid, scallops, shrimp and clams. The product is sold by the pound and prices range from US$ 1.50 to $ 5.00 per pound.
If you are into deep-sea fishing, you can rent a boat at the dock (skipper included) who may take you along the coast and show you the best spots and techniques that will guarantee a successful day fishing. During your trip, you will likely see some of the marine life including, sea turtles, dolphin fish, marlin, tuna, among others. From November to March, if you are lucky, you might get to see whales that migrate along El Salvador’s territorial waters.
