Atmosphere

atmosphere is great fisherman will take you out if you just help them out for a couple hours. great place to stay if on a longer vacation and need a couple weeks or days to save money and escape the sin pit that is jaco. also good to brush up on espanol skills because theres very few tourists or english speakers besides small resort north of where the road hits the beach. gorgeous wide white sandy beach can walk for miles if youre into that.

General

not the greatest spot but good if a beginner and hermosa is a little steep or closing out. easy to hitch to from jaco/hermosa due to highway closeby, but good to have a car.

- Yes there was a croc attack here. Didn't kill the kid, but tore a nice chunk of his leg off though. Honestly though I surf here almost everyday, and have never seen one in the water.
