Las Flores Surfing
Managed by surfers for surfers, Las Flores Surf Club’s pride is its signature break “Las Flores” — a world-class, 300-meter-long, right-hand freight train that forms outside the point and peels across the sand bottom cove to the beach, just meters from the front of the hotel. Our epic location in front of one of Central America’s premier waves is unrivaled in El Salvador. Additionally, our beach-front El Salvador Resort boasts luxurious, modern facilities and amenities, a panga fleet for surfing and fishing in the area, and an in-house surf school and guiding program.

Alegría Town Eco Tour Shuttle
Located at the bottom of the crater of Volcano Tecapa, the Laguna de Alegria is one of El Salvador’s most breathtaking natural wonders. Due to the emerald Sulphur and other minerals found in the volcano’s crater, the lagoon glows a stunning blue green. The lagoon’s turquoise waters are particularly pronounced during the winter months. The lagoon is easily accessed through a cobblestone street that passes through coffee plantations. Explore with guided five-hour hikes around the crater rim.
San Miguel Shopping
San Miguel is a popular destination during its Carnival in November and the country’s third largest and most populated city. Visit the 19th-century Cathedral, Francisco Gavidia Theatre, or shop at the Metrocentro San Miguel, the closest mall to Las Flores Resort. Temperatures in the city typically range from 73°F to 94°F. The San Miguel Carnival takes place every November during the festivities in honor of their patron, Our Lady of Peace. During Carnival, the town’s main avenue fills with orchestras, musical groups, and national and international artists, like Colombian singer Carlos Vives. San Miguel is also a major center of trade. From the city, enjoy breathtaking views of the highly active San Miguel Volcano.
Volcano Hike (Conchagua)
Travel through a rural, tree-lined Balastreado road and view the petroglyphs of Yologual, stones with images of monkeys, before reaching the protected area to start your hike to the Conchagua Volcano. Conchagua towers over the Gulf of Fonseca, part of the Pacific Ocean bordering El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Conchagua Volcano stands at a whopping elevation of 1,225 meters (4,019 ft) above sea level. On your way, you’ll encounter colorful butterflies, small mammals, and a variety of birds before arriving at the viewpoint from where you can see the mountains and the islands off the coasts of El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
After 12 years of civil war, North Morazan has transformed into a place of peace, tranquility, and astonishing beauty. Within Morazan, you’ll find crystalline rivers, flowing cascades, and a plethora of hiking trails and camping spots. Its early inhabitants were Lenca tribesmen and women. Like much of El Salvador after the Civil War, tourism flourished in Morazan, and towns like Perkin and Arambala welcomed travelers from all over to the area, which is surrounded by coffee plantations and lush pine forests. During the height of the Civil War in the eighties, Morazan was the site of one of the war’s greatest battles. In Perkin, travelers can visit the Museo de la Revolución, which houses objects, documents, and images relating to the Civil War. You can even take a guided tour with ex guerilla soldiers.
