There are a handful of breaks around Punta Roca, all susceptible to various swell directions making for good waves on any given day at one spot or another, and no matter who you take along, there are waves for everyone. Photo: Quincho Aragon/Adventure Sports Tours

Punta Roca is a regular-footer’s dream series of point breaks, and after the leg-burners have had their way with you, you can book a diving or snorkeling trip, fishing trip, tour of the coffee plantations. Then again, depending on your condition you could just walk, hobble or crawl up to the rooftop restaurant, catch a Salvadoran sunset and sap on a tequila. We won’t judge you.
