A Surf Experience with a Laid Back Spirit and Good Vibes

When we first visited the little fishing village of El Paredon, we fell in love with the dusty village roads, black sand beaches, and dreamy west-coast sunsets. We’re confident you’ll feel relaxed, welcomed, and surrounded by nothing but good vibes and empty waves in Guatemala.

The Surf
El Paredon is a laid-back surfing oasis with some of the most consistent surf in Guatemala. We love this spot as the swell works on all tides and is perfect for experts, intermediates, or beginners learning to surf. You will be surfing mostly beach breaks and river mouths with some opportunities to surf secret point breaks if the swell is right. Because the beaches in Guatemala face directly south, they pick up just about every swell along the Pacific, so not a day goes by where the waves are not surfable. If you want to wake up steps from empty waves, join us in Guatemala before the crowds arrive.

The Yoga
Whether you’re new to yoga, practice daily, or love meditation, you’ll quickly fall into rhythm with the sound of the waves coming from one of the most beautiful beaches in Guatemala. In the cozy and rustic A-frame yoga deck is where you’ll reset and find balance in between your surf sessions. Yoga is offered daily by highly experienced teachers who tailor classes to the needs of the group—the perfect compliment to surfing and a way to connect with yourself and feel your best.

The Food
Our food philosophy at Rise Up is centered around fueling your body properly for the week using fresh and local ingredients. Our chefs create delicious and nutritious meals that cater to every kind of dietary need. We enjoy all of our meals family-style in the open-air thatched roof dining area. We include 4 healthy meals a day, plus dessert! You will surely face each day feeling happy and healthy.

    The Space
    Our surf lodge in Guatemala can best be described as rustic, yet cozy, charming, and boho-chic. When you’re not surfing, you’ll feel at home by the pool, hanging in the hammocks, or walking the black sand beaches. The 8-suite hotel include a spacious loft style room, bungalow, poolside swim-up suite, or surfer studio. Kick your shoes off, smell the lemon and hibiscus trees, and share in our little oasis.

    The Adventures
    Surround yourself in the laid back lifestyle of El Paredon! The lazy beach town isn’t one that many people think to venture to when visiting Guatemala, but it won’t be long until they do. The area itself is part of a National Park—untouched by modern-world standards—and promises lush mangroves, beautiful beaches, and down to earth people. Here are the adventures we will take you on in this sleepy fishing village in Guatemala.

    • Go on a boat cruise through an estuary
    • Take a cooking class with a local family
    • Join us for dinner at a local restaurant
    • Spend an afternoon volunteering at a local NGO!
