Park near the Malecon in Barra de Navidad. Easy access by the beach near the breakwall. Watch the killer shorebreak. Nice, friendly tourist village with plenty of beach front bars.

Nice quick left for beginners or a longer faster right for more advanced. Can get big but stay in the deeper water area to access. Lots of fun. Grab a chair on the beach and order a margarita. Hang out and surf. Shorebreak is fun to watch.
Good sheltered spot facing more north I think if south swells blowing out further down the coast.
local school kids on battered hand-me-down boards rip...locals are friendly and very good. Give them the wave first out of respect.

- its a fun wave, breaks on the outside then mushes out. On the inside they look like they'll break but never pitch, they just roll in and make for a pretty strong shore dump. There's a decent amount of backwash to manage as well.
PAWA surf is down the street towards town, good place to rent a board. They also coordinate trips to other breaks in the area.
