We are only 30 minutes from San Salvador airport door-to-door and striking distance to all surf breaks in the Wild West within 40 minutes. Our Surf Tour guests get the red carpet rolled out with private surf guides and exclusive or shared vehicles to access any surf spot we know or you want to surf. There are several surf spots in the La Libertad area listed below, but some we like to keep quiet for our guests.

You will find head-high surf consistent from March to November and waist-to-shoulder high surf in the off season. Although you must keep an eye out for off season swell, the conditions are good to epic with primary offshore winds. La Libertad consists of about a dozen different high quality breaks beginning at the coastal town of La Libertad. It contains the most popular El Salvador surf spot, Punta Roca the only world class wave in Central America.

One of two house waves for the hotel, this wave is a softer version of Punta Roca that breaks directly in front of the hotel. Best to surf this wave with a long board or fish but can be steep and offer a barrel in the months of Oct – Dec with the incoming sand from the rainy season.

Super high performance wave, two right points lined up next to each other and sometimes runs all the way through on a perfect direction and swell size. K61 a bit more critical wave than K59 but offers barrel sections, fast racing lines for medium to advance surfers.

K59 / K61, El Salvador Surfing

Mizata, El Salvador Surfing:

Mizata is another spot that we tend to hit when it is small everywhere else but it is the first spot to close out when there is swell. The area of Mizata is a bit of a hike but definitely the go to spot when the surf is in the 2-3’ range. This area has a good right hander outside the Rivermouth, Beach Breaks and a Slab for the Loco Surfers…
