Wipeout Surf House


Our Location

Wipout Surf House is located at Playa El Zonte (km 53) about 15 minutes north of Playa El Tunco and about a 45 minute taxi ride from the Airport. If you check us out on Google Maps you will see there is more than one entrance to Playa Zonte. If you are taking the bus, coming from the airport, you will want the last entrance. Once you get off the bus you will walk the road for about 200 meters and find Wipeout Surf House on the right.

Have no fear, however,  if you get off one stop earlier. This middle stop is considered the ‘main entrance’ and has covered picnic table and there are likely people on the bus getting off here. If you decide to get off the bus here you can come to Esencia Nativa at the end of the street in front of the beach and we can take you to the Wipeout Surf House – which is only a short 3 minute walk away.

We also offer a pickup service at the airport for a fee of $45US.

What backpackers say


  • This place rocks! I am so tired of hanging out in hostels where everyone is on their phone trying to figure out the next great instagram post. The wifi free zone at Wipeout made it one of the best places I have stayed in a long time. I made more friends here than any other hostel on this 6month trip. I will come back for sure. Thanks Alex and crew!
