I know there are many misconceptions about Central America and it not being safe (Nicaragua and Costa Rica) but I was curious to see if anyone has ever traveled to Las Flores in El Salvador. The resort seems spot on however I am sort of "in the dark" about the traveling situations getting to and from the hotel from San Salvador. The resort has a service that seems reliable but a little pricey but that's not a problem if the ride is smooth without any distractions or hasslers. If anyone has any experiences traveling to this particular resort or anywhere else in El Salvador it would really help me out.

Las Flores was by far the best spot in ES when I went this summer. It's also the furthest from the airport. Drop me a PM and we can discuss your travel details.

i was there in august. las flores makes for a great surf trip. the area is generally safe, ride to/from the airport is easy and the roads are more modern and reliable than most in central america. the point at las flores is a fun ripable wave. make sure you surf punta mango.
i've been there. Stayed across the street from p. mango. Check the pic or two i put up. Those are el sal. Way worth it. If you can't get to Las Flores, go to el tunco its just a half hour or so from the airport. Theres night life and plenty waves.

Tunco is more like 45 mins from SS, still an easy ride. 50% closeouts or more when I was there and they could be harsh. Amazing rights across that whole country. Not sure what night life you caught in Tunco but it's pretty sparse. Most peeps are there to surf so they're in bed by 10pm to get up at 5am.
tunco is next to everything. Dont know how you managed to get close outs. Anyhow, like i said i stayed by mango. The night or two i spent in tunco say good waves and festive nights.

Surfing was definitely the reason i was there but sometimes a guy gets sidetracked after a sesh...ya know....
pics to prove it you ask...ok:
waves, not closing out right out of el tunco, i think its called bocana. Sunzal would be to the right of the "pig" rock not seen in the photo.
Some girls, ya just 3, but thats more than the 2 dudes...

Answering questions, waves are good, it can be very safe if you are smart, can also be very dangerous. It is worth spending extra $ there to ensure safety. Many many palces to find uncrowded surf, not sharing my gems though, just explore and be resepctful. Also do not go onto the beach at night there!
