El Salvador has two seasons - dry and wet. Surf season is from May to October, what we also call the 'wet season' (south hemisphere winter). This is the season with the largest and most consistent swells, an average wave height of 6-12 ft, consistent swells, and cooler temperatures. Local storms are also more common, which means there’s a good potential for rain squalls in the afternoons. While staying in Punta Mango Surf Resort you will have access to all the uncrowded waves, far away from most tourists' common destinations.
Our summer, or 'dry season, is from November through April and the entire country's coastline, which faces south, is shadowed by northwest swells that originate in the North Pacific. That's considered our off-season, with offshore winds, sunny skies, and consistent surf. From our experience, you still can get fun and middle-size waves (especially in March and April). That is the time of year that the South Pacific is transitioning and we begin to see a marked increase in the size and frequency of storm activity, fueling an uptick in average surf. Even the slowest months of the year, December and January can offer decent off-season swells. Those are the best months for beginners - when we have smaller waves, light winds, bright and sunny days, and cooler evenings and nights. newer, beginner surfers due to the smaller average wave heights.
Most of our guests describe us as a 'surfers paradise' and we are very proud to take the compliment.

I've been surfing in El Salvador since 1997. In 2004, after graduating from college as an engineer, I needed to find a way to work and maximize my time surfing. I started working as a guide with a local company. As more surfers began to discover this place, I met the right people and in 2007 an opportunity presented itself - to be the founder of a surf tour company.
With a lot of work and learning, 2019 came and I decided to open Punta Mango to provide the best surf experience in the untouched region of El Salvador. We provide all-inclusive surf tours for surfers of all levels. Punta Mango region, in comparison with La Libertad, remains pristine.
I am proud to say that in Punta Mango, we have the best in-house team, including a professional chef and bartender to provide the best meals and drinks. Here our local guides Juan, Emilio, and Marcos make sure our guests ride the best waves every day during their stay.
