Prolongacion Calle Arica S/N, Puerto Malabrigo
While the hotel isn't necessarily one to write home about (it's modest, comfortable, welcoming) the wave out front—the world's longest at 2.2km—is. In fact, if you know what you're doing, you can surf it for about two-and-a-half-minutes. Meanwhile, the hotel offers pools, a spa to mitigate any wipeouts, and an on-site restaurant. And most importantly, it's staffed by surfers who can provide pointers on exactly where to go (the general manager, Miguel Vegas, won a national championship in 1995).
