Las Flores Surf Club lies on a stunning 7-acre beachfront property directly in front of the famous surf break and palm tree-lined postcard beach known as Las Flores. Las Flores Surf Club’s pride is its signature break “Las Flores” — a world-class, 300-meter-long, right-going freight train that forms outside the point and peels across the cove up onto the sand just meters from the front of the hotel. The epic location of the Las Flores Resort directly in front of the wave is without rival in Central America. In combination with the beachfront hotel’s modern facilities and amenities, panga fleet for surfing and fishing the area, in-house surf school and the personalized service of our surf guides and staff, the result is a surf expeditions location that is open year-round.

Playa Las Flores is a dramatic, natural cove, hemmed in by severe topography and dense tropical flora, a playful black sand beach bordering a cauldron of whitewater and waves detonating in the background, a throwback in time to a prehistoric vision of Central America where the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean meet the charcoal sands of ancient volcanic outflows. Cast within this primordial setting, Las Flores Surf Club is an environmentally conscious hotel designed to have a minimal impact on the landscape and ecosystem.

The hotel features 15 ocean view guest rooms and suites with modern architecture and progressive design. The variety of accommodation can meet the needs of a diverse range of guests including singles, couples, families and groups with configurations ranging from 1 to 4 beds each. Current guest capacity is approximately 38 adult guests with the ability to handle exclusive resort bookings as large as 45 people. However, in the interests of sustainability surfer numbers are regulated with the number of surf passes sold each week being limited to 20 or less.

Local Climate

El Salvador has a dry season (November – April) and a wet season (May  -October). One should not be deterred from traveling to El Salvador in the “Wet season”. The majority of days in the wet season are fair with occasional afternoon and evening thunderstorms, and the wet season is generally when the surf is biggest and best and glassiest. The dry season, or “summer” (November – April), offers beautiful, sunny conditions, but typically has more wind, especially January-March, when the onshore comes up by 9 or 10am, and December – February is smallish and inconsistent.

The water temperature is between 78 degrees F and 86 degrees F year-round. Unlike neighboring Nicaragua or Guanacaste, Costa Rica, El Salvador does not get the strong local offshores that cause upwelling, and El Salvador water temperatures are among the warmest in Central America. The air at the coast is hot and humid, in the 80’s and low 90’s generally. Strong sun protection is mandatory.

The Surf

Managed by surfers for surfers, Las Flores Surf Club’s pride is its signature break “Las Flores” — a world-class, 300-meter-long, right-going freight train that forms outside the point and peels across the cove up onto the sand just meters from the front of the hotel. The epic location of the Las Flores Resort directly in front of the wave is without rival. In combination with the beachfront hotel’s modern facilities and amenities, panga fleet for surfing and fishing the area, in-house surf school and the personalized service of their surf guides and staff, the result is practically unprecedented in surf travel.

El Salvador’s East Coast
The East coast, contrary to belief, is not the Caribbean coast, in fact EL Salvador has no Caribbean coast only a Pacific coast. Because of the El Salvador coast’s due south orientation the country is divided into 2 regions, “El Oriente”, East, and “Occidental”, West, a.k.a “La Libertad”. The East coast of El Salvador gets the same swells as the West coast and La Libertad. These swells are generated by storms in the Southern Hemisphere and occur with regularity from March-November. Average wave heights are 4-8 ft on the face, with bigger days to 10-15 ft faces possible, and rarely if ever under 3 feet. The consistency is 90% or greater. December-February still breaks but is less consistent, 1-3ft mostly, with days to 5 ft possible. This season offers sunny skies and pleasant conditions however strong side-onshore winds are common (ideal for kitesurfing). The main draw here are 5 righthand pointbreaks located along a 10 mile stretch of rugged, mountainous coastline. Most famous of the breaks are Las Flores and Punta Mango. Besides these 2 waves there are at least 3 other quality points in the region.

Surfing Equipment
Though waves up to double overhead are common, gunny boards are generally not needed. 5’10” to 6’6″ thrusters are ideal, with a 6’8″ or 6’9″ rounded pin for the heaviest, low tide sessions. Funboards, longboards and fish also work well in these sometimes machine-like pointbreak conditions.
