Tour operator

This company was born from a love of the El Salvador surf.

Their surf school and lodge is much loved and they started offering tours to surfers to show El Salvador’s beauty on days when the surf was flat. The company grew to include tailor-made tours to all destinations in and around El Salvador; including transportation, bilingual guide, tours /entrances, accommodation and services and we love their more personal, highly interactive and flexible trips whether you’re traveling solo or with a group of friends.
