El Salvador Retreats hosts retreats at One Wave Surf House in El Sunzal - a beautiful ocean-view villa in a private community overlooking the famous surf break Sunzal.

  • Daily maid service
  • Full kitchen and unlimited filtered water
  • Ocean-view yoga and siesta deck with hammocks
  • Private swimming pool (Villa del Olas also provides access to the community salt-water pools near the villa)
  • 24-hour gated security
  • Wi-Fi Internet service approx. 25mbs consistent

The villas are 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. Airport transportation from San Salvador Airport (SAL) to the retreat location can be arranged through El Salvador Retreats for 45 USD one-way or 80 USD round-trip. Please notify El Salvador Retreats if making other arrangements.

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 single person occupancy. The locations are one hour from the airport and one hour from San Salvador. Check-in is after 2 p.m. and check-out is by 11 a.m. There is often an opportunity to come or leave a day earlier / later, please ask El Salvador Retreats if you want to extend your trip at an additional cost. Alternatively, El Salvador Retreats can recommend guest houses nearby.


During this retreat, you will have two yoga classes and two surfing lessons, with optional surf coaching/photo reviewing. The surfing is for all levels, however, during the spring and summer seasons, El Salvador Retreats recommends you to come with some previous surfing experience. You can surf the break right in front of the villa on a private beach, great for skill-building.

Typically, you will try to surf in the morning or afternoon, whilst the sea is in the coolest temperature, 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. Seasonally, the waves in El Salvador are semi-consistent. December to February usually runs 2 - 4 feet with a week or two of larger waves. This is the ideal season for beginners.

March to May and October to November are generally 3 - 5 feet with a few weeks of larger waves. It is a good time for both beginners and intermediates. In June - 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 you cannot predict weather and wave conditions, El Salvador Retreats will work with the group to ensure new optional activities are available in the event.

Although they will do 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, you will be notified and must comply for the safety of yourself and others. All activities are optional, and El Salvador Retreats will vary the timings according to the tide timings to maximize your surf opportunities.

On your surf retreat, you’ll deepen your skills by surfing world-class beach and point breaks, and then return daily to the comfort of a private oceanfront villa. El Salvador is a beautiful, tropical country with spectacular vistas and comfortable weather all year round. Temperatures are usually in the high-70s during mornings, evenings, and at night, while days are typically in the 80-95 F range. El Salvador is blessed with some of the most consistent warm-water waves in the world. You have guided surf every day of your retreat to the best possible wave.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held at One Wave Surf House, El Sunzal. El Salvador is a beautiful, tropical country with spectacular vistas and comfortable weather all year round. Unfortunately, El Salvador remains off many travelers’ radar, overlooked for other Central American countries such as Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Panama.

El Salvador has many understated charms, kind, and friendly people that surprise most first-time visitors. Being off the beaten path, El Salvador remains unspoiled by heavy tourism. El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America, yet includes some of the best-paved roadways. Visitors reap the benefits in that traveling to even the most far-flung destinations never takes more than a few hours.

Nearby places

  • San Salvador - 1 hour
  • Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport (SAL) - 1 hour


The food is healthy, fresh, and delicious to power your yoga and surf retreat experience. During your stay, you will be served three daily meals and snacks, prepared by the staff and chefs. 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.

Breakfast will 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 at 1 to 2 nights. Pupusas are served with gourmet sides and toppings.

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 that 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. Below is the list of the food that will be served during your stay:

  • Morning snacks and coffee
  • Hot and healthy breakfast
  • Fresh fruit, smoothies, and delicious cold lunch fixings
