Paradise Found

Mizata enjoys waves when all other breaks are flat, with 340 days of swell each year. There are five Surf Breaks within walking distance and a beginner surf break just five minutes down the beach. If you are looking for the most consistent and uncrowded wave in El Salvador. This is it.

The Breaks


This powerful right hander sits at the mouth of the river. Surfable from waist high to well overhead. Best at low to medium tides, with mild reverb during high tide. Fast punchy drops, with large open faces that go for 200 meters. Get covered up on larger days with short barrel sections. Avoid the tempting left as it dumps into shallow rocks at low tide. In front of the resort.


One of the few sick left breaks in El Salvador, Tweeners, is an epic rock bottom A-Frame that peels both ways. It works well at medium and high tide and holds size, with fun barrel sections during overhead swell. In front of the resort.


Thumping beach breaks work well during high tide with overhead barrel sections, rights and lefts. Take caution at low tide to avoid exposed rocks and a mild rip. Two minute walk from resort.


A shallow reef break that requires larger swell over six feet. A technical wave for experienced surfers that want to get pitted. Five minute walk from resort.


Mellow beach break, perfect for beginner surfers. Also, the location for surf school and surf camp. Five minute drive from the resort.


For adventurous surfers interested in surfing with no crowd, we provide boat service to untouched waves.

The Quiver

Traveling with surfboards sucks. So often they show up broken or not at all. At a minimum, it is expensive and leaves you at a new surf break with limited board options. There is a better way! We have partnered with Lost Surfboards to provide you access to the sickest quiver of surfboards imaginable. This is the perfect opportunity to try a multitude of boards on a variety of waves. You will be amazed to discover how you perform on different shapes. Plus find a board you like and Lost will custom make and ship to you!

Surf Experiences


For adventurous surfers interested in surfing with no crowd, we provide boat service to virgin waves. So far we have pioneered 3 new incredible breaks that have been left unnamed. This half-day surf trip embarks on the beach in a Ponga with our local guides and tours the stunning coastline until arriving at the chosen break. A truly unforgettable experience.


With a 4X4 and expert local knowledge, we will take you to any surf break your heart desires, or provide you with recommendations based on swell condition. Whether Punta Roca, La Bocana, K59, El Zonte, Nigrei or experience secret spots.


Surfing provides a connection to the universe, a freedom of flight that leads to the healthy addiction of wave hunting. Like anything worth doing it requires practice and a planned approach. The surf coaching at Mizata is designed to maximize fun and minimize the learning curve. To get you surfing in the shortest period of time possible, in a safe environment. To accomplish this all our instructors complete an ISA Certification to insure best practices and guest safety. Further, our instructors pass rigorous background checks and physical tests. More importantly, our instructors share our mission to share the stoke of surf as a lifestyle, not a sport. As a way of life. All surf instruction includes board rental. You can also include a photo and video analysis. Whether you are taking a single class or a surf camp you will fall in love with surfing and Mizata.


It is a trip how often guests reluctantly ask for photos, only to be super frothed up to see an immortalized self in their El Salvador surf trip, or volcano hike or anything else you want to be captured. Pictures carry this instant key to our memories, instantly unlocking the vault of experience and preserving our glory years for future generations to marvel.
