El Zonte


El Zonte is a small beach town with a welcoming local community and year-round surf. With enough time you’ll come to know everyone by face and name, from the local fisherman to small business owners. This little paradise is truly magical — offering breathtaking views of the ocean, sunset and lush mountain scapes. Get involved with one of the open-to-all beach workouts, enjoy traditional eats from the local pupuseria and improve your surf skills on either the right, and/or left breaks. El Zonte is one of the most coveted locations for residential or rental property!
