What would define a perfect surfing destination?

Consistent, perfect surf, with a high effort-to-results ratio, high security, good vibes, nutritious and delicious food… this is it! Unforgettable rides and memories all captured on photos/video and a video edit of your crews trip. All surfers dream of long, peeling point breaks. Punta Roca, La Libertad is often compared to the best right point on Earth, Jeffrey’s Bay, and for good reason. But Punta Roca, La Libertad is just one of many amazing cobblestone point setups on this wave blessed coastline. With a variety of points, open swell window for all south and south west swells, and a perfect setup out front of your first class accommodation with little to no crowds, you will realize why we are so excited about this dream spot.

This is the point break in front of your bungalow. There is also a fun beachbreak straight out and the famous (and busy) point break Punta Roca, La Libertad is only five minutes away!

  This is the ultimate turn-key, no hassle surf trip. Our beautiful, secure, beach front location is situated just a half hour from the international airport (SAL), on a palm-lined cobblestone point, which leads to a nice sand bottom beach break. Our surf trip packages are perfectly suited for surfers of all levels, from bros to pros. We offer everything from roping point waves, to mellow peelers perfect for intermediate and beginning surfers.

Our award-winning restaurant uses the finest fresh local ingredients and freshly caught seafood, all served up in an exotic, tropical environment.

Our culinary director works to develop a creative menu steeped in grilled seafood, seafood cocktails, and Tropical American/Salvadorian fusion cuisine. We cater to all diet types and preferences.

In the bar, guests are greeted with a smile. Enjoy revitalizing juices, the famous national cerveza Pilsenser, served ice cold, and a variety of tropical cocktails including Caballo’s famous Margaritas!

El Salvador is a rough country, but for respectful adventurers there is a wealth of epic surf and good times on tap. The highlight of every El Salvador trip is the wonderful people.

Your hosts, The Rotherham family, bring generations of knowledge and experience and one of a kind service, to make sure you and yours score amazing surf and have a great time.

Excellent waves, vibes and grinds!

  • Warm Pacific waters provide the ideal water temperatures hovering around 80 degrees for surfers year-round.
  • World class surfing and a big swell window for any angle south or southwest swell.
  • Very consistent: Punta Roca and surrounding breaks “always have a wave”.
  • Home to WSL events including the Quiksilver Pro and Reef Classic.

Besides surfing, check out the colorful Spanish colonial towns, coffee plantations on the scenic terrains of volcanoes, and sublime national parks! This country is unique and spectacular.

What makes El Salvador different from Costa Rica or other famous Central America surfing destinations?

El Salvador has never been able to capitalize on its near-perfect resources in terms of surf tourism. A civil war during the 1980s kept regional and international surfing enthusiasts away for a long time. However, the last fifteen years have seen rapid development and a surge in the influx of visitors. The national treasure of the country is still in its unspoiled state, calling out to surfers of all levels looking for great waves and amazing vibes.

Getting there

The nearest airport is El Salvador Airport (SAL), which is located a brief 32 km from La Libertad. We will greet you on arrival, and from there just relax and enjoy the scenery, while we take care of the rest.


Our nine fully equipped bungalows look out over the garden and pool and into the beach and waves. They follow a traditional, yet modern architecture and progressive design that complements perfectly with the beachfront landscape and ecosystem.

Our comfortable accommodation facilities are ingeniously designed to cater a diverse range of guests. If you are rolling deep with the entire crew or charging solo, we have the ideal post up for your needs. We offer suites that comfortably sleep 1- 5 people, and also feature bungalows with 4 double rooms and 3 triple rooms, to exclusively handle large number of guests.

All rooms are fully equipped with flat-screen TVs, A/C, Wi-Fi, hot water, living room with sitting area, and even sunbeds!

After a long and stoke-filled day surfing yourself silly, relax in the breezy hammock lounge overlooking the point. Or perhaps some drinks at the beachfront bar. The inviting interiors of our rooms will be just what you need to unwind with the crew, your loved ones- or spend a romantic evening with your partner.

For entertainment,

  • Play table tennis
  • Indulge in a foosball game
  • Take surf lessons and feel the indescribable thrill of riding waves
  • Sample the vibrant nightlife in nearby El Tunco
  • Go fishing
