Rainy season? - Do your research! I was down in Guatemala for 10 days in late September early October. Nobody mentioned a rainy season? The rivers were running strong with mud, debris, and trash. The trash was unbelievable! Even found a hyperdermic needle on the beach! The surf was big but closed out almost everywhere. Go ahead and rent a car because you'll be driving looking for rideable waves.
Nice.... - Recently went to Guatemala for a weekend wedding. Took advice from some earlier comments and contacted Pedro Pablo at Maya Extreme before arriving. Absolutley no regrets. Looking forward to my next visit and this time I will be bringing friends.
el paredon - i just sent my boys(17,18) to el paredon surf camp for 9 days. everything was great. surf was good, adolfo did everything he said he would--transportation, hotel in antigua. wud highly recommend using him,
please some advice to surf in Guate - I going to guate during 2 weeks next holy week. My surfing plan is staying three days in Sipacate (rancho carrillo) and another three days in monterrico. I have read Rancho carrilo have board for hiring but i don´t anything about Monterrico. Is it posible to rent a board there?. how much a board cost? Also i read some coments this place isn´t so good. what do you think? have you got something more to advice?Thanks in advance.

Remote spots but Marginal Surf - I now live in the highlands in San Marcos. I have been to Champerico.... not good at all... and Tilapa a little better but marginal at best. I have yet to see a spot in this country where there is a decent break. Everything is a close out. On the positive it is really cheap and the people are nice. Next stop Mexico for some real waves.Paulwww.pelicancafe.net
dont bother - guatemala is not a surfing destination. all those steep volcanoes make for steep black sand beaches, creating jack-up dump and close out waves. also, there's no coastal road, so you have to backtrack inland just to go to another beach. I'm sure there are gems on the right days w/o crowds, but your time and $ is better spent in MEx or el salvador.
visiting Guatemala possibly - Im thinking of visiting Guatemala for a surf break for a couple of weeks around June. It will be during a break from my work (in Belize)Does anyone out there recomend going to Guatemala for a chilled surf break or do you recomend somewhere else in central america such as Mex, Porto etc. Thanks in advance, hang loose, Matt.
surf traveler - I was to Guatemala in late December .The waves were chest to head high. The person to contact is Pedro Pablo @ maya extreme. THERE IS NO CROWDS!!!!!!!!
traveler - I would be really careful driving in a car through mexico and guatemala. I spent a few years near the border of mexico and guatemala, and it is dangerous. Decent surf if you catch it right. Pack light and don't bring anything you wouldn't mind getting stolen. Remember you are a walking bullseye for theifs and so on. QUE TE VAYA BIEN
