 Access

You can drive pretty there pretty easy. Just go west on the coast road from El Cuco and Las Flores, after about a half hour you'll see a big blue sign that says Punta El Floral which is Punta Mango. Park at Ranch Mango and walk 3 minutes to the point. Buses go out there from El Cuco also, but not always easy to find the right one.

Boat from las Flores, a $60 U.S.D. gets you there and the boat stays with you for a couple hours. Most boats have a capacity for 5 surfers.

 Additional Information

If driving its best if you have a little extra clearance or you will probably drag a little. You don't really need 4X4 though unless the road is wet.
Paddle out from the beach. Unless you're really good going off the rocks you're probably going to get cut up or ding your board, and only go off the rocks on higher tides.
Leave your car at the Restaurant / Hotel Ranch Mango, they usually don't charge, just buy a drink or some food.

Atmosphere

This spot still has a raw feeling because it is pretty isolated and the coast is not largely developed--unlike most of the good breaks in El Salvador. If you hit it on the right day, you play the crowd right, and you have the guts you will get shacked. Why do i say the guts? Because it´s a hollow, very powerful, and fast wave.

General

It gets good--but when it's good, there will be crowds as there are now many boats that drop tourists off at the takeoff spot.

GOOD SURF - I am a salvadorian living in France and i am sorry to hear that there are a lot of negative comments in the chat about punta mango. I surfed a lot El Zonte and it still a nice place. Tourism is increasing and it is a bussiness ... is a shame that not all the profits are not spread, but it is also about the tourists attitude. I travelled central america, and i think we have a high quality wave ... punta mango is great, cuidado con las piedras no es para boyas !!

I got shot. - I got shot when I was using Punta Mango surf guides. Seriously, they led us into a firefight with local banditos. Then the guy from the US company that subcontracted them was a complete turd about the whole thing.
