English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Depending on your surfing skills, you have to choose a right tide time. For the begginers Mi-Tide getting-low is very fun. For the more experienced a high tide is awesome. At El Paredon Surf Camp(and offices in Antigua) they have tidal data and forecast.<br />There are no signs along the road that indicate how to reach it, therefore the most recommended tip would be to contact El Paredon Surf Camp, right in Antigua. They can tell you how to reach the spot or they can drive you. So far they offer basic accommodations and great food, good music, etc.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): This is simply the best surfing spot in Guatemala. The area as a whole is a National Park, called Sipacate-El Naranjo. It is composed by three main towns, and EL Paredon stands in the middle of those three. El Paredon basically is a fishermen community, not impacted by the modern-World standards, which makes it unique. Although there is electricity, the inhabitants of this place live on a basic level. Everyone smiles at you. There is only one Surf Camp (El Paredon Surf Camp firstname.lastname@example.org)and probably the only place in Guatemala completely built and thought for the surfer. This is a new hangout place and it really looks as one of a kind. Prices are very reasonable. El Paredon Surf Camp supports a program for the conservation of the Mangrove Forest that surrounds the area and they also support the conservation of marine turtles, since those reptiles nest on that beach. The beach is composed of very thin black volcanic sand and the distance from the beach to the ocean is probably 30 meters.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): There are no surfers, except those. The area and the surf camp really needs support from visitors, since the community of El Paredon is deeply involved with them and hope that surf will bring them some prosperity. Contact on e-mail is email@example.com

YES, visit Guatemala! - The whole coast of guatemala with it's beach breakes is certainly not the easiest place in the world to learn surfing but the surf at El Paredon is very consistent and there are always some good waves. The place itself is great, also for it's surrounding mangroves and the empty beaches! The best time for beginners is during the dry season, roughly between october/november and march. If you go there you should also have a look at the Paredon Surf House, a very nice little place that opened only a few months ago!
