You can leave your car in the public parking area in Playa Linda, but take care with your stuff cause you can lose it.
This is a lonely place, with very good waves, sometimes it's a litle bit dangerous because of the sharks and other sea creatures, but it's exciting.
It's a good place with good waves.

Fun spot! - Walk towards the rivermouth and then keep going....actually a long walk!! Best way is to rent a 4x4 and access the peaks here through the town.Enter town through the highway. Bring insect repellent. Lots of mosquitoes due the lagoon which lies between secret dirt road between the pueblo and the rocky beach.Catches more swell than playa linda. Been twice....caught good peaks in late march and shitty closeouts in August.Have fun!

SHARKY!!! - Surfed this spot in mid May. Got it really fun and eerily empty...found out why...a dead cow was washed up on the rocks...after my surf I took a look at the thing to my surprise it had a huge chunk taken out by the left rib cage. For sure a very large shark!!!!!! Havent been back since.
