With its location directly in front of one of the premier breaks in El Salvador, the mission of Las Flores Resort is to provide an experience to match the quality of the world-class wave whose name it shares.
This boutique, 15 room surf resort sits on a 7-acre beachfront property that embodies much of what the Pacific coast of Central America is known for. Tropical forests, singing birds, howler monkeys, palm trees, and cliff sections all add to the experience. The star of the show, however, is Las Flores the wave. When Las Flores is at its best, it’s a 300-yard right-hand point break with a take-off spot outside of the point. Depending on the conditions, it can offer anything from barrels to long, carvable walls, or combinations of both. There are also inside sections for beginner and intermediate surfers to enjoy. To put it simply, it’s a world-class wave and one worthy of a dedicated surf trip.
