I'm glad I got in before the "bukele boom". My home's now worth four times what I paid for it.

nsbkook , when you surf at your place, which is is your primary break you go to. I surfed K-59 down the road from you a couple years ago and did enjoy the wave. So to do you surf behind your house or walk to the main point ? It sounds like there is three breaks to Mizata

I'll occasionally surf behind my house if the conditions are right (high tide, offshore wind, small to midsize swell)

If the conditions are "just right" there's a beach break within walking distance from my house in the direction of mizata called sihuapalapa. If it's working you can stand in neck high water and catch little shoulder high micro barrels.

Mizata is a five minute drive down the road. On a big swell I'll go surf the left at Negrei, which is about 20 minutes away. Negrei needs a head high+ swell just to start working.

As you mentioned, K59 (and El Zonte) are nice breaks a little further down the road.

Don't. At least until you have talked to at least two people who have already done it. I did it in Zihuatanejo, Mexico and had to luck out to exit with most of my money recovered. El Salvador is much more sketchy. There is a huge difference in buying to live there full time and buying to make trips there. The problem is what happens when you aren't there. And believe me, things will happen.

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

Agree that the difference between living full time and making trips is big - and you need to plan - and invest - accordingly.

Have owned my property remotely for 7 years now with no issues - although I'm sure that's because

1. I have a full time caretaker and family that live in their own house on the property. They handle the security of the property as well as the maintenance, groundskeeping, cleaning, laundry and cooking. It's like being on my own private all-inclusive resort - except I own it.

2. I'm there at least once a month to keep an eye on things.
