 Additional Information

You can park outside of the port near the resturant, take a cab (50/50 chance of being let in) or take the bus from Puntarenas inside the compound. Its a long walk (about a mile) regardless. During the rainy season the dirt road is a mud road and on high tide you have to walk along the rocks. Once you get over the rocks to the beach watch out for the dog (it wont bite but loves to charge and bark, just yell back and it will leave you alone). The quickest way out is to walk along the rocks/ beach (depending on tide) on the left and just swim straight out, if you start on the beach in front it will take you forever. I've heard stories of rare crocs and stingrays but never seen either at this spot.

Atmosphere

Its a left point that is really fun. It generally doesnt have a lot of speed which makes it a great spot to teach beginners inside. BUT it is one of the most fun waves you'll ever ride. Its about 4-6ft on average and when its the right tide and a decent south swell this wave breaks for around a 1/4 of a mile or more. And, on occasion (rarely) there are tubes.

General

I love this spot, it has warm water, its not usually very crowded, it has really long fun rides and its located in a beautiful area. Small price to pay for the walk if you ask me.

swell direction matters - Do your homework and you will always have epic waves. swell direction at this point is from 195 to 212 south at about 9-12ft

watch out - Watch out for the locals, very territorial. A guy pulled knife on me last time in the water.
