El Salvador Retreats hosts retreats at different venues close to El Tunco, as well as villas nearby. One Wave Surf House in El Sunzal is a beautiful ocean-view villa in a private community overlooking a famous surf break. The villa offers many luxurious features:

  • Daily maid service
  • Full kitchen and unlimited filtered water
  • Ocean-view yoga and siesta deck with hammocks
  • Private swimming pool
  • 24-hour gated security
  • Wi-Fi Internet service

The villa is located in secure, gated communities. Items of value are safe in the house. Passports and additional money can be stored in a safe. Private transportation is included throughout the trip for all scheduled trips. Rooms will be shared based on double to triple occupancy. If you are coming as a solo traveler expect to share a room or indicate you would rather pay a single person occupancy supplement of 650 USD.

The location is one hour from the airport and one hour from San Salvador. Check-in is after 15:00 and check-out by 11:00. There is often an opportunity to come or leave a day earlier or later, please ask El Salvador Retreats if you want to extend your trip at an additional cost. Alternatively, they can recommend guest houses nearby.



El Salvador Retreats is lucky to have several experienced international yoga teachers living close to Sunzal to deliver high-quality yoga classes at their retreats. Each teaches their own distinct style of yoga, blended from years of teaching in the USA, UK, El Salvador, Brazil, Ireland, and India.


Surf the break within walking distance of your villa, which is great for skill building. Otherwise, you can be shuttled to the best wave for each surf session. The villas are just a short drive away from nine different surf breaks.

Seasonally, the waves in El Salvador are quite consistent. December to February usually runs two to four feet with a week or two of larger waves. This is the ideal season for beginners. March to May and October to November is generally three to five feet with a few weeks of larger surf. It is a good time for both beginners and intermediates. From June to September the waves can be very large and are more weather dependent as it is the rainy season.

This retreat is a surf-at-your-own-risk event. As El Salvador Retreats cannot predict weather and wave conditions, they will work with the group to ensure new optional activities are available in the event the surf is not cooperating. Although El Salvador Retreats does their best to get you to the right waves for your ability, there may be a period of the retreat that the waves become too sizable or the surf guide deems out of the surfer’s skill ability. In such a case, the surfer will be notified and must comply for the safety of themselves and others.

El Salvador Retreats likes to use local surf instructors as much as possible, this is their beach! They will offer translation or English-speaking instructors that will teach you all they know about these amazing surf breaks.

Daily schedule

All activities are optional, and El Salvador Retreats will vary the timings according to the tide timings to maximize your surf opportunities. Typically you will try to surf in the morning or afternoon, whilst it’s coolest, but this will depend upon high and low tides. You’re welcome to wake up earlier and head down to the beach for an early morning surf, but please be mindful of your neighbors.

  • Colonial town visit, coffee plantation, or volcanic hot springs tour. Not only is this really interesting, but it’s also deliciously cool up in the mountains
