This quiet refuge, with no more than 300 houses, is a sanctuary for surfers and an ideal destination for those looking for a quiet place, without the hustle and bustle.

International Volunteering: Community Development in El Paredón
El Paredón is also a place with many needs, but it has a great ally: the volunteer work of hundreds of foreigners. These volunteers work together with the community to develop the town and provide equal opportunities to all its inhabitants. Initiatives of friends from the United Kingdom, the United States and other European countries have established themselves in El Paredón to educate the children and adults of the village, train them in business administration and entrepreneurship, as well as provide employment and development opportunities.
