Photographer's Note

El Puerto La Libertad was the first port built in El Salvador. It was evolved into a fishing boat port, a farmers market and a tourist attraction. Two newer ports in the country have replaced it economically, La Union and Puerto de Acajutla. The original pier was built in 1869 but over time the structure deteriorated and was replaced by the modern structure, which underwent a major renovation in 2003. Fishing boats are lowered into the ocean by a crane located at its end. Local fishermen sell their catch of the day here; seafood on display includes a variety of fish.
