i have read quite a few threads (too many at this point) about trips to nicaragua and el Salvador and I am still undecided. looking at trip august 3-10, may very well be going solo.
it is either:
1) staying at playa colorado, nicaragua with boat and road trip in the area and up to popoyo. or
2) las flores, el salvador
I am a high intermediate surfer, regular foot, with 20 years in the water and a fair amount of surf travel under my belt (CR a couple time, PR many, HI, J-bay, etc). if you have experience with either I would appreciate your insight.
Nica has more options, but with that swell window, you have a damn near guaranteed chance to score two world class point breaks in Las Flores and Punta Mango going absolutely ape****. And when they are on.....they are on.
Las Flores and Punta Mango are both amazing waves. When we were there, crowding was a factor at times, but nothing too bad most of the time, and there were uncrowded times every day.
If you search the threads, there was one a few weeks ago with a bunch of pictures of the areas waves.
Never been to Libertad
