This 8 day El Salvador surf and adventure trip is perfect for beginners or intermediate surfers, with long sandy beaches, ideally sized waves and bilingual surf instructors.

Combine surfing lessons with adventures to Maya sites and coffee plantations, volcano hikes and kayaking through mangroves as you explore two of El Salvador’s best surf spots. El Salvador boasts lush mountain ranges, stunning volcanoes and a narrow coastal belt featuring some of the most beautiful beaches and right hand point breaks in the world.

Start your El Salvador surf and adventure trip with 4 days on the west coast at the bohemian El Tunco where you will learn to surf with expert bilingual instructors at Sunzal.  Morning lessons are combined with afternoon adventures, exploring historic Maya sites, visiting coffee plantations and hiking up the volcano of Santa Ana.

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.
