Boat from las Flores, a $40 U.S.D. gets you there and the boat stays with you the whole morning. The boat has capacity for 5 surfers. You can drive and hike but its not worth it. It blows out almost everday after 10 or so. Evening sessions are rarely worth the boat ride. If the swell is too small you can´t surf because its too shallow and not worth breaking a fin or scratching yourself up for weak waves.

It is a fairly new spot in El Salvador, it was found around five years ago. If you hit it on the right day and if you have the guts you will get a tube session you´ll never forget. Why do i say the guts? Because it´s a hollow very powerfull and fast wave.

General

I beleive that after Punta Roca it is the second best surf spot in El Salvador. Best bet is to use a surf tour in El Salvador, www.straybulletsurf.net

GOOD SURF - I am a salvadorian living in France and i am sorry to hear that there are a lot of negative comments in the chat about punta mango. I surfed a lot El Zonte and it still a nice place. Tourism is increasing and it is a bussiness ... is a shame that not all the profits are not spread, but it is also about the tourists attitude. I travelled central america, and i think we have a high quality wave ... punta mango is great, cuidado con las piedras no es para boyas !!

I got shot. - I got shot when I was using Punta Mango surf guides. Seriously, they led us into a firefight with local banditos. Then the guy from the US company that subcontracted them was a complete turd about the whole thing.
