Juan Gaviota

Juan Gaviota surf information:

Surfing Paradise in Guatemala a private and exclusive complex

Jetties made with the purpose of creating a marina, the sand blocked the exit and became a point break

If the points are not working there are two different but still constant and fun beach breaks

Juan Gaviota has the best facilities and club house with a high quality restaurant, a beautiful pool to chill

When the swell is big this place breaks bigger than the other spots

We can get you a house for rent and a surf session
