Cool Hotel West of El Tunco

Hello travel experts, Im looking for a cool place to stay between El tunco and Playa Sihuapilapa in January (when the waves are down)
we are looking to spend about 25 to 35$ for a decent room at a beachside hotel. Me and my girlfriend plan to work our way up the coast and we require a beach that is good for swimming. We arent really into the more popular place of El Tunco, we are simply looking for a quaint hotel with a simple room by the ocean hopefully with simple restaurants and supplies…

On the road in El Salvador

I'll be in El Salvador with a couple of friends, will be renting a car/guide.
In terms of the gang "mara" problems, is this an issue in the countryside?
Or is the main issue of you find yourself in the wrong part of town, in the wrong city.

I have never been to El Salvador but it seems to get bad press as a whole but reality is that the gang problem is isolated.
True?

Thanks

Rapel Mojado (Juayua/Siete Cascadas)

Does anyone know if Rapel Mojado is still in business. It's in the latest Lonely Planet Book to El Salvador, but the book dates back to 2006. The only thing I can find online about the company is a bunch of positive reviews in Spanish. I would like to try the trip if possible, but can't find out how to contact them.
