Miravalle (El Salvador) is the name of the beach where my parent's friends own a beach house. They let us use it for the weekend. Apparently, Christmas time is the best time to go to the beach in El Salvador. The water is warm, the beach is hot and the waves are manageable. If you go in the "summertime" it's during rainy season and all the runoff makes the water mucky and the waves are too strong to be enjoyable. In my opinion, hanging out on the beach is the best way to celebrate Christmas.
