Practice your daily sun salutations while watching the sun rise and set over the Pacific Ocean from El Salvador Retreats' private villas near Sunzal, a quaint, beach-side town 45 minutes from the capital city. Relax and enjoy a massage treatment. Experience a surf lesson in beautiful, warm waters. Whether you’ve never surfed, wish to improve your skills, or just love exploring new waters, El Salvador Retreats will take you to world-class surf spots at your doorstep.
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:
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.
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.
For those seeking even more adventure, El Salvador Retreats offers optional excursions to visit colonial towns, mountain coffee farms, and local waterfalls. In addition to your yoga classes, surfing excursions, and a complimentary massage, El Salvador Retreats will also be offering optional local excursions (although you may choose to stay at the villa and keep relaxing by the pool):
El Salvador Retreats is managed by Tyler Trafas, the owner of One Wave Surf in Los Angeles, California, USA. El Salvador is a special surfing spot for him and he’s been coordinating group retreats here for many years.
El Salvador is a beautiful, tropical country with spectacular vistas and comfortable weather year-round. It is also blessed with some of the most consistent warm-water waves in the world.
El Salvador Retreats keeps it healthy, fresh, and delicious to power your yoga and surf retreat experience. Your retreat includes three daily meals and snacks, prepared by the staff and chefs:
Breakfast is be prepared after the morning surf session or prior to the day’s excursion. Fresh fruit, smoothies, and lunch fixings are prepped at the house to be readily enjoyed by guests at their individual convenience. Dinners are cooked daily at the house, except for an optional sunset dinner at a local restaurant.
El Salvador is known for pupusas (like a stuffed tortilla filled with meat, cheese, and vegetables). The house staff prepares fresh pupusas for dinner for one to two nights. Pupusas are served with gourmet sides and toppings.
Some of the other meals often prepared or catered at the house are:
All non–alcoholic beverages are provided. Two beers per day or a half bottle of wine is also included. Guests that wish to consume more than the daily provision of alcoholic beverages provided are responsible for the additional cost of ingredients and alcohol. Please keep in mind: this is a very healthy and active retreat. It’s not a poolside cocktail-fest in Cancun. If you drink too much, you will miss out on fun stuff. Unlimited filtered water and ice are provided. The tap water is not safe for consumption. Don’t even brush your teeth with it.
The meals are omnivorous, but El Salvador Retreats will be happy to accommodate alternative dietary requirements (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free). Please communicate food preferences or allergies when you book.
Feel free to book extra private yoga or surf lessons, go zip-lining, or just enjoy your free time at the villa.
