Booked a last-minute trip down to La Libertad with a few friends for Thanksgiving week. The property is really nice, right on the Punta Roca break. Emilio and Paola are the best! Paola, knowing a few of us were missing the traditional turkey dinner, went out of her way and make a proper feast with all the fixings! The waitstaff in the restaurant are also extremely nice.
We did dawn patrol every day followed by a sunset surf. Aside from great surf, we also hiked to a waterfall (which you can jump off of) and some caves you can go through. We also rented ATV's for a day. Really, really solid trip. I plan on coming back, no doubt!
So this is my second time at AST Surf Hotel and I had a amazing time. I am an intermediate surfer, October was a good month for me. Clean chest to head high waves. Empty waves. Most of the time we had the waves to ourselves. The surf guide Emilio was great. He took me on an excursion to the Ruins and the waterfalls which was such an fun getaway.
The hotel is clean and I couldn't ask for better service. Everything was clear and spelled out for me as far as what to expect with charges and services provided. El Salvador is still under the radar and I am enjoying the country before it gets packed with gringos. As a solo, female traveler that does not speak the language, I always felt safe.
It is a very quiet town with not much to do there. My goals were to find clean, long waves, empty surf and I found it at La Libertad.
In the beginning we were a little worried with leaving Texas to go to El Salvador for the week due to all of the things you hear about killings and kidnappings. We are so glad we ended up going though because we had such a great time! I was with my fiancé, his brother and his brothers friend. The locations were beautiful and well kept. The food was SO good.. I still crave morning breakfast from El Salvador. The first location La Libertad - had the nicer room right on the beach. You walked out on your balcony and you were literally on the water. So pretty. We tried to surf here (we are all beginners) but the waves were too high for us. So we ventured out on the town and got to see the Mayan ruins, a hidden waterfall and a volcano. That was all SO MUCH FUN! Oh and I forgot to mention we had the BEST guide out there. Tomayo. He was so awesome and knew where to go, knew everyone you saw so it made you feel really safe. We also loved the van he would drive us around in. We really felt like we were a surf group (even though we are not that good at all). The second location Las Flores was breath taking. Here you stay at more like a hostel style rooming. I had never done that before so it was different, but I managed. You are literally on a peninsula so the water is all around you. The waves at this location were a lot more calm so we were able to try our skills out here and learn. All in all this was one of the best trips I have ever taken/experienced and I highly recommend going. You won't regret it.
