Heavy, powerful beach break when it's on. One of the best waves in tha world for sure allow big barrel, fast and super strong .......pure adrenline rush.
This place is HEAVY and really good. I would say it is just as heavy as Puerto if not heavier. If you are not an EXPERT surfer do not go there. This wave is for expert barrel riders only. If you are into the party scene go somewhere else there is NO nightlife and NO chicks. This is for serious tube riders ONLY. I surfed it at double overhead and it was unreal. I live in Central America at a beach break on the Pacific coast and we get some heavy surf as well. This is not a place for guys who are not experienced in serious surf. Two months before I was there, a couple of years ago, a Venuzuelan bodyboarder died. This place is as mean as it gets. Now to the guys that are into this kinda thing and you know who you are... THIS PLACE IS UNREAL. The bigger it gets the better it gets. Bring your miniguns and be ready to break at least one. This place is not for chicks or guys who wanna party. The accomadations are core and the food is so so. Edgar is a really cool guy he has the Hotel right when you come into town and you can rent a hot little room right in front of the break for cheap. You can surf from the early am to 11am or 12pm then it blows on shore for the rest of the day. After that there is NOTHING to do there. I went to Tecoman (a bigger town just ten minutes from Pascuales) everyday after my surf and went to the Internet Cafes. As far as the local gringo crew... everything you have read is true.
Can be a really good, better and heavier than a Puerto Escondido type wave.

Pasquales - this IS the largest biggest beach break in Western hemi, been surfing there since 1977, and I have surfed worldwide
stay in town, is best, no night life even then but surf eat sleep. lots of times it was TOO big, even for those such as us, hatteras surfers and even Derrick Doerner once, we would many times have to go to Boca de Piza or Ticla, or up to secret spot near Manzinillo
I also will drive back to El Salvador[best warm water waves on this planet] and pick up Uncle Steve in Bonfiel, another great huge beach break, he is Mexican master surf champ, 72 y.o.
Mexico Rules, no worries be nice respect the people

Danger? - I'm heading to Pascuales July 2, i am wondering what the crime has been like in coastal Colima and Michoacan recently. Been there before and it's too good to be scared by stories of gangs, but I've also heard that it's been sketchy at La Ticla recently. Anyone know what's going on right now? Safe for solo gringo to travel?
