PLAYA LAS FLORES and the wild east
Charming, quiet and passionate, one of the most important surfing destinations in El Salvador, is Playa Las Flores in the department of San Miguel, just a few meters from the small village of Playa El Cuco, on the east coast of the country and just across the Gulf of Fonseca from Nicaragua separated.
Its large light gray sand beach surrounded by greenery makes it a hidden jewel with perfect waves for international surfers. The population is local fishermen, who provide a safe environment, and with the hospitality of the people of San Miguel, this destination is an unforgettable experience in which everyone feels welcome.
In the surroundings you will find a wide range of quality accommodation with air conditioning, private bathroom, cable TV and internet. Many also have a large garden and swimming pool. At low tide you can take a small beach walk to the nearby Playa El Cuco to explore the local restaurants and the small fishing village.
Of course there are also accommodations for backpackers or travelers with smaller money bags to be found. Many families in the area rent rooms, where you can enjoy the typical delicacies. Fresh fish grilled or cooked with lemon juice and salt, beans and fried tortillas by the hands of the hosts.
The adventure on the sea begins when the wave is low, landscapes are explored, new unspoilt beaches are found or the dinner is fished. If, however, the waves are a bit higher, the otherwise quiet fishermen become captains, who will confidently maneuver their boats through the waves and always give the best in the search for the perfect wave and make all the surfers happy.
Vista Las Olas is a hotel for lovers of comfort, privacy and good taste, fully equipped with all amenities, air conditioning, cable TV, large bathroom and rooms with sea view. An infinity pool overlooking the ocean makes the experience perfect.
The beach restaurants of El Cuco and Las Flores offer dishes such as grilled seafood, fish soup, shrimp cocktails, rice with squid and specialties such as shrimp-stuffed fish.
