SURF IN EL SALVADOR
For decades El Salvador has become one of the most impressive surfing destinations in Central America. The main difference to other "surfs" is the concentration of the surfspots, with many perfect waves in a very small territorial extent, that is, up to 8 surfsports on 30km of coastal road. In addition the access to the beaches are very good and mostly by car.
With the international airport located in the central zone on the coast, it is possible for tourists to enjoy the perfect waves in only a few minutes from the airport.
The most important surfing destinations are La Libertad in a central location and in the east Playa Las Flores. In between, a variety of waves await all surfers, or those who want to be there.
The development of sport in different beach communities has helped to become one of the pillars of inbound tourism in the country. Therefore, the commitment of many communities and private entrepreneurs is quite ambitious, community development opportunities in these regions is a hope to bring education and job creation to different villages. Villages like Playa El Tunco, Playa El Zonte and Playa Las Flores have managed to create a microeconomy within their communities with the arrival of many surf tourists and have very good growth prospects for the coming years.
