Optional items are marked on the schedule with a (*) and you’ll be responsible for massage appointments, alcohol, and lunches on your own. We leave lunch as open time for people to explore town (5 minute walk) and sample local flavors, visit a healthy cafe or dine oceanside. Optional activities such as additional surf lessons or board rentals, a waterfall hike adventure trip and massages are available a-la-carte.  Retreat center staff tips are always at your discretion based on your personal experience.


El Tunco is known for it’s world-class waves and bustling surf community. You’ll feel at ease whether you hang ten or don’t yet have your sea legs. Our skilled instructors will be with you every step of the way to safely guide you on the water with step-by-step instruction. These exceptional local surf instructors are a blast to be with in the water. You’ll remember their smiles, energy and great attitudes.

Experienced surfers will find some of the best surfing in El Salvador. March is one of the best months to visit at the dry season, when temperatures are high but south and southwest swells start arriving. With uncrowded beach breaks and famous point breaks you’ll want to bring a board or rent one from the surf company at our retreat center. You can trade quality boards in and out each day to have different boards for different surfing conditions and different surf breaks. (All boards are in excellent condition and all have high performance carbon fins.)

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings.” ―Elizabeth Gilbert
