I am looking for ESL teaching jobs in a city in central or south america. I also love to surf and want to practice my Spanish. Any advice on how to make this dream a reality?
Thanks!

Be careful where you go. The surf in Guatemala is lacking (mainly shore break.. and actually fairly dangerous due to the same). Check it out before you go there. I hear its better in El Salvador, parts of Nicaragua and obviously better in parts of Mexico. I think Ecuador or Peru might hold promise. If it were me, I'd check out parts of Mexico (seems easy to get a job) or head to Ecuador in the alternative. Mexico seems like the best way to go though, although I haven't worked there myself (just what I've heard). Central America doesn't seem ESL friendly. I work there, but not in ESL at the moment.

There are lots of jobs in Guayaquil and some famous surfing spots a couple hours away. Also, look into Chile!

There's good surfing on the western coast of Mexico, in Nicaragua, Peru, and Costa Rica.

I fear that places that have good surfing may not often be places that offer decent employment to prospective English teachers. Hopefully, another poster may prove me wrong.

Sure there are places that pay well and have good surf, but they are in Asia, Africa or the Middle East.....
