Soma Surf Resort is an upscale, but simple and elegant resort set in the hills of Tola, 10 minutes from some of the best surf breaks in the world. And the hosts, Casey and Bill Morton, will make your stay perfection. The on premises restaurant offers some of the best food in the area, and they will even insist you take a ride to the beach with someone from their staff to purchase the daily fish offering freshly caught, a must-do when visiting Soma.


Definitely a great place to visit and chill out, and ladies, if your man is looking to go surfing and you are worried about having nothing to do while he is out in the water, this is the place for you!

Nestled among the greenest mountains in Playa Gussacate is Soma Surf Resort.
Soma is the amazing creation of Casey and Bill Morton, who are truly committed to every need of their guests.

We just returned from 5 fantastic days where my 15 year old son was able to surf all the different famous surf spots, and chase after the waves with his surf guide. I, on the other hand, prefer the 2 feet on land, was able to sightsee and relax by the gorgeous by pool overlooking the exquisite landscape that Soma offers.
I left there feeling terribly spoiled, as every need and whim was met by the local staff, as well as inspired by the amazing talent and dedication of the owners at Soma.
Already planning our next trip back!
Something for every family member!
