Now renovated and reopened, SUNZAL POINT was the original surf lodge of El Salvador. In 1961, the Angulo family purchased Sunzal Point, and shortly thereafter opened doors for business as “Surfer’s Inn.” Their small “rancho” was the original, first, and only lodging available for surfer’s and vacationers in the area during the 1960’s and 70’s. They provided accommodations for surfers and tourists from the United States, many of whom slept in hammocks when all the rooms were sold out.

    Renamed “SUNZAL POINT SURF LODGE & RETREAT,” our hostel is open to surfers, travelers, volunteers, and anyone who wants to stay in a comfortable, practical, fun, and adventure-filled paradise.


     Whether it's amazing swell and great surf or an underwater cave adventure, every day means something new and rad for our guests. Yes, we said rad.

    Located in Playa El Sunzal, El Salvador, SUNZAL POINT Surf Lodge & Retreat offers affordable, clean, and spacious rooms (no AC...yet!). We are the closest hostel to the world-class waves in Sunzal, and centrally located close to La Libertad and the vibrant beach town of El Tunco.

“Sunzal Point Surf Lodge is located next to one of the longest -if not the longest- right hand breaking waves in all of Central America.”
