Surfing in Las Flores
About Las Flores And All It Has To Offer
Located on the outskirts of the sleepy fishing village of El Cuco in eastern El Salvador is the tropical paradise of Playa Las Flores. The dramatic cove, hemmed by severe topography and dense tropical flora is a throwback to the Central America where the warm waters of the Pacific meet the black 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.
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 our surf guides and staff, the result is practically unprecedented in surf travel. The point at Las Flores has a gradually sloped sand bottom so the wave progresses from bigger waves on the outside of the point (these waves break as far as 300 meters out) to smaller waves and reforms on the inside of the point. So on bigger days while there are large sets on the outside the inside of the point sees smaller reform waves. While on smaller days the outside and inside breaks can be user-friendly even for beginners. Tides also play a role Las Flores has a large tide swing of about eight feet. So at low tide the waves break faster and more top to bottom while at high tide the wave is softer and mushier (more beginner friendly).
In addition to surfing Las Flores offers daily yoga, kayak tours, dirt bike tours, fishing, beach tour by boat, and more. No trip to Las Flores is complete without at least one visit to the spa! All our trips are completely custom and built to exceed client expectations!
