About Us

Founded by Lexi Cross, previously living in New York City, and Roman (Chimbera) Martinez, born and raised in El Zonte, El Salvador, Surf & Stay was created with digital nomads in mind. The program was launched during the pandemic in 2020, and has evolved over the years, serving as a place to connect, work, and play! We focus on:

  • Work/life balance
  • Personal & professional development
  • Mind/body connection
  • Adventure & sport

“Don’t think twice!”

I went into this trip not knowing what to expect. It was my first time leaving the US. I left with new friends, new skills (yes you WILL catch a wave), a new mindset of respect, and most importantly a fresh outlook on the world as it exists outside of what I’m used to… and it’s beautiful.

This whole trip was such an overwhelming experience (in a good way) I never would have expected!

“What a ride!”

I wanted to say how grateful and thankful I am for the opportunity that you all created for me/the group of us. It changed my life and most importantly, the perspective I have on life. I am missing Zonte so much already.


The Stay.

The best living accommodations El Zonte has to offer — a beachfront house with ocean views + ocean access, private pool, friendly, 24-hour staff and more.
