South coast of Guatemala

Calling all surfers!

Are you one of those adventurous souls who love to ride the waves? Then listen up: Sipicate beach, on the Pacific coast in the south of the country, is an ideal location for surfers, a huge beach that is one of the best surf spots in Central America. At around 140 kilometres (87 miles) from the capital, it is well connected by coach with all the main Guatemalan cities. The charm of this beach lies in its location, with not even a village nearby, giving you total freedom to just be yourself. If you come by car, you'll have to park in the surrounding area, walk a short while and then take a boat until you see mile after mile of white sands and crystalline waters stretching out before you. The immense ocean will welcome you with open arms!
