El Zonte is dominated by heaps of rocks so it’s safer at high tide. When the swell’s big enough, there are some sucky lefts that can be ridden on the other side of the bay. Mellower vibe than other Libertad breaks. Driving west, the scenery gets dramatic with steep cliffs, mountain tunnels and winding roads. Most of the capes are inaccessible, but a boat trip around this area would undoubtedly be rewarding.
