Las Flores right point break it is a long, consistent, fun wave with a sand bottom and tubular sections. being in Las Flores the main activity is surfing, and one of the activities is to take a boat and surf Punta Mango point break the most tubular wave in the country.
Because this area are long flat sandy beach breaks the best time for surf this spot is during the low seasson, the tides change a lot and during the hight season basicly the spot desapear, it just have some waves in hight tide with big swell, This is spot is not consistence, it get flat very frequently, is not a place to visit in the dry season, it get flat during several months, but as soon the swells start to pick up the low tides bring the best rides anybody can get in El Salvador. Around Las Flores there a a couple options of surf spots but most of them just work with big swells, spots like El Toro, La Vaca are places where you wil be able to surf just if you spend a couple days and wait for the big waves comes.
