Welcome to The Driftwood Surfer

The Driftwood Surfer is located in the beautiful town of El Paredón and boasts some of the best surf in Guatemala. The waves are usually best at sunrise, so many people try and get a good nights sleep to be ready to surf bright and early. While others over indulge in a big night upstairs. El Paredón is hot all year round but you can cool yourself off in the ocean or relax in our beautiful pool.


  • The public bus takes up to 6 hours from Antigua, so we don’t recommend it, but we can send you detailed instructions if you really want to do it.
  • Shuttle transfer From Antigua

  • Upon booking, we can arrange a shuttle from Antigua through daily from Antigua to El Paredón for Q.90 per person (approx $12 USD)
  • Private Transfer From Airport

  • We also arrange private shuttles with our own Paredón Surf House van. This is a door-to-door service meaning no lugging baggage across Antigua to meet the shuttle bus. We charge $100 flat fee up to 4 people from Antigua, and $140 flat fee up to 4 people from Guatemala City including the airport (2.5-3 hours).
    Advanced booking is always required for shared or private shuttle services.
