How to Buy a Coastal Property in El Salvador

There are no restrictions on foreigners buying urban land. Foreigners should be aware of the need to be cautious about property rights. All property is registered in the Instituto Libertad y Progreso, a state-owned registry that clearly identifies the owner of the property. The accuracy of this registry, which is currently being computerized, makes property insurance obsolete. This type of registry is considered a safe way to guarantee ownership.

Surf Breaks of Sunzal

In the earliest days of El Salvador surf travel, Sunzal was the country’s crown jewel. By the early 1970s, images began floating back to surf magazines in the U.S. that depicted green, flawlessly peeling right peaks stacked to the horizon. The Sunset Beach comparisons flowed liberally.

El Tunco

El Tunco, the little village just on the south side of the river mouth has transformed from a rough backwater to a trendy vacation spot for locals and travelers alike. Laid back during the week and absolutely pulsing on the weekends. Couple the tourist-friendly atmosphere of Tunco with the user-friendly peaks of Sunzal and you’ve got a recipe for one helluva stew in the line-up. Young local rippers to giggly Danish backpacker girls out for their first session… and everything in-between.

The wave itself is a great experience. From a distance it is easy to see how the Sunset comparisons came about, but in the water you’ll quickly realize the two are distant cousins. Because its broad cobble reef juts so much farther out into the ocean than the rest of the nearby coast, Sunzal will suck in every bit of swell out there. The point is sharply angled and relatively deep, which means the wave will retain its shape in all but the largest of swells, but will also be soft and riddled with fat sections. As a result, Sunzal is Salvador’s funnest waves for both longboarders and, when it’s small, beginners. If everywhere else is flat, Sunzal will almost always have something to offer.
