Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Guatemala and El Salvador, the former famed for its black sand beaches and the latter for long right pointbreaks like Punta Roca. Facing south-west the region makes the most of the swells swinging up from the pacific. The best swell arrives during the dry season (December to April). The extreme heat and lack of precipitation contrasts sharply with the wet season, guaranteed to rain heavily every afternoon making spot access occasionally tricky. Dominant wins are offshore from the north-east with morning offshores and afternoon onshores. After years of instability the countries are now relatively safe to travel through. The area was first surfed in the 1960s by Peace Corps volunteers. Water temperatures rarely vary, hovering around 27-28°C or 81 to 82°F.
