Surfing La Libertad El Salvador

Our hotel was designed by surfers for surfers so when choosing a surf trip to El Salvador our guests couldn’t be happier with the location of our hotel. Centrally located in Puerto La Libertad we are within 3-45 minutes of the best surf breaks and right points El Salvador can offer in the West Coast. La Paz probably the best long board wave in the West Coast is directly in front of our hotel, offering 100 meter rides to the shore and outside is Punta Roca the best high performance wave in Central America home of the Quiksilver and Reef Pro. Our staff will help you prepare for your surf acting as your personal surf caddy with board preparation, and an ice cold bottled water and clean towel post surf as you shower off in front of the hotel.

If you want to check out a variety of surf spots our guides will drive you to several other surfing locations in La Libertad, these breaks are for all levels of surfing so if you are a beginner or advanced surfer we will have you in the right wave during your stay with the AST Surf Hotel.

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.

At times La Paz can break nearly 300 meters, as perfect as it can get.

El Zonte, El Salvador Surfing:

The super chill town of El Zonte has a good variety of surf from Beach Break, Right Point and Hallow Left Hander. The beach breaks work at all tides, point at low to med best and inside left hander we call baby Green Bush works at low tide just grinding off the sand bottom… One of the first spots to max out on an incoming swell, not good for anything over 6’

K59 / K61, El Salvador Surfing:

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 also a high performance wave but less critical than K61 but just as fun and more ride able for the intermediate surfer.

  • Direction:  S,SSW & SW
  • Tide:  All Tides
  • Wave Size:  4-6″++
  • Location:  25 Mins from Hotel

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…
