A friendly and chilled little beach village that almost always has surfable waves and low crowds.

El Zonte has a good variety of waves (3 different surfing areas within 300 metres) that are surfable in most conditions from 2-5ft. Waves bigger than 6ft generally close out this area so best to surf elsewhere.

The wave is suitable for experienced, intermediate surfers and learn-to-surf.

We can offer you:

  • Learn to surf classes (1 hour / one experienced instructor per student / includes board and equipment) - $30 per class

  • Surfboard rental (great range of boards for all levels) - $10 per 24 hours


El Zonte is a about 5 hour drive from Antigua. Our private shuttle leaves every day from Antigua at 7.30am and we also have private transport options (from Antigua, Guatemala City, El Paredon and more).

It is about a 1 hour drive from San Salvador City / San Salvador Airport. We can pick you up at either location and bring you here in our private transport.


Whether you are an experienced surfer, a beginner or just want to hang at the beach, from our base here in Antigua, we can offer you options to suit all budgets.

Packages can include transport, accommodation, meals, surfing/learn-to-surf/surf guide and other activity options with departure/return options from Antigua, Guatemala City and San Salvador.
