General

Overall, it's a fun place to spend your weekend. On the downside, it gets crowded these days. If it was uncrowded, I wouldn't post this info here.

George - Yeah, the real punta cabras is south of the brake listed.

George is a harmless testament to Mexico's lack of social safety net. I gave George some pesos for wood, and all our extra food. He brought out a wheelbarrow load of wood, and a framed black and white of Dorothy from the wizard of oz. He told me that Dorothy was his daughter who had left for the United States, and he asked that I take the picture and see if I could find her. I took the picture. There is a bullet hole in it, right where Dorothy's heart would be. I didnt ask about that. Also George requested that the next gringos down please bring some magnets, to help him pick up metal bits (he has a strange wheel device that uses magnets). Any way, he's fine. I'm 5 ft 2 female, and he was nothing but courteous. He'd probably steal your shi*t if you were not watching it, but I dont think he'd hurt you.

george is fine... - I spent a week with my wife and 17 month old kid at punta cabras..deadly spot. Great wave, nice local people and awesome muscles on the rocks. Anyhow this George guy is harmless. He hiked 1km home to grab a rake to rake away glass around our van so our kid didn't get cut. We bought firewood off him once and he kept us stocked the whole time...only charged us the once. He picks up all the garbage left behind by gringos and loads it all into a wheel barrel and takes it to his place to burn it. He took us to his casa over the hill and my wife took some cool shots of the property...Anyhow I'm sure the guy has a story,but he's sixty years old and is a spry old bugger. He played with my kid and was polite and nice, I wouldn't worry about him at all, plus he hates develoment. That pedro guy is all anout seeing the place turn into a tourist mecca..
