RE: Great Country - Lots of Surf

I'll be in El Sal for 2 weeks. July 5th through the 20th with one buddy. Anyone gone through these surf camps? Don Lito, Punta Roca, Rick's, or Horizonte? This will be the first stretch of a 7 month surf trip for me. I'm trying to budget big time, and I'm looking for a cheap but safe spot for myself and 1 or 2 friends. THANKS!

RE: Great Country - Lots of Surf

I just got back yesterday from a 8 day surf trip to La libertad area. I had a great time. Knowiing spanish sure was helpful when dealing with the people, especially the thieves at punta roca. that area was pretty bad as far as crime. I personally know of 2 people that were robbed of something. Punta is by far the best wave in the area. if there is a swell, punta roca will be firing. caution, walking anywhere around there is a risk of thieves. be careful and try to have someone else with you to watch for eachother. but wow, what a wave. got the longest from way outside on the point all the into playa lapaz by the pier. incredible.

beautiful country with lots of friendly locals, and great food. the red beans were my favorite. very simple but tasty. very good seafood too.

Hey Liz,

I was down in El Sal in Feb for 2 weeks, mainly surfing (although you wouldn't know it from my skills) and I'm headed back from the 6th of June to the 26th.  If you want any advice give me a shout at brydson@hotmail.com.

Cheers,

Mike

RE: sanzul hotels

I have been trying to get info. on Casa de mar resort and villa Aquitania from the internet and I have failed. Waverunners list them but I cannot book a surf vacation with them since I am the only surfer going in a large group. We are 8 adults and 5 kids now and expecting more. Can you get me in touch with Casa De Mar or any other hotel/ house that has a pool and is close to the beach?

casa de mar looked really nice from the water. I didn't stay there but it sure looked inviting. the wave out front was much to mushy for my shortboard taste but perfect for beginners.

Punta Roca was by far the best wave in the area and dishes out super long rides and plenty barrels. no matter how much crime and crackheads are in the area, the wave is worth it for sure. make sure and be very careful in La Libertad area proper, its a rough scene at times. watch your backs and you'll be fine and don't wander around at night there, thats asking for trouble..
