Oceanfront surf hotel and academy with excellent food, top-notch training facilities, and epic waves out front.

Infinity pool. Check. Ocean views from every room. Check. Carver skatepark. Check. Full-size gym, yoga studio, and 25-meter lap pool. Check. Super friendly staff and knowledgeable surf instructors. Triple check. When we say that Puro Surf Hotel and Performance Academy has it all, we mean it.

Located in the quiet little village of El Zonte in El Salvador, Puro Surf sits perched on a cliff with sweeping views of the Pacific and a very consistent right hand point break. The 13-room boutique hotel is the perfect place to leave behind any stress and relax into a surf-eat-sleep rhythm at a comfortable place that covers all the bases.

Aesthetically speaking, Puro Surf has some architectural eye candy, but it’s not all about the looks, the design is also highly functional. The beautiful palapa-style roof of the hotel’s restaurant Covana doubles as a rain catcher, helping the hotel recycle water naturally for their lawns, gardens, and property.

The hotel is strategically situated with easy walkable access to multiple surf breaks and you can check the waves from the infinity pool (always a plus). There’s a punchy and consistent beach break only a stone’s throw away, and if point breaks are more to your liking, take your pick, as there’s a consistent right point out front and a left point around the corner.

The on-site Surf Academy caters to surfers of all abilities, offering everything from fundamentals for beginners, to coaching sessions and video analysis for more advanced surfers ready to take their surfing to the next level. All surf instructors are certified by the International Surfing Association and leverage the onsite training facilities to teach multiple aspects of surfing: technique, tactics, mind, and body.

El Salvador is the land of world-class righthand point breaks, but there are lefthand points, river mouths, and hollow A-frame beach breaks on offer too. Being a south facing stretch of coast, the main surf season is from March to November, but you can typically find fun waves and favorable winds year round. January is the least favorable month for more experienced surfers, but it’s one of the best months for beginners and kids. Whether you’re a beginner or pro, longboarder or shortboarder, there’s a variety of waves to suit your ability and style.

WATER TEMP: 80 – 83 °F ( 27 – 28 °C) all year long but can get a bit cooler on occassion

PEAK SURF SEASON: April – November

SHOULDER SURF SEASON: Nov – March

SURF EXPERIENCE: Beginner to advanced
