Atmosphere

A really good, fun wave. I've heard it does get big, but there is a pretty good channel on either side to paddle out. Wave is primarily a right, but there is a left off of it and another left that breaks across the little channel coming towards the right. Best in the morning and evening, when the winds are light and offshore. Even when there are a few people in the water, the vibe is friendly from the locals. Usually, it’s non-locals that have attitudes. Some good local surfers. Stash your gear on the beach and it should be fine, but keep an eye towards it. If you walk in, bring water, it gets hot.

General

I like the spot, it gives you enough power if you're a good surfer, but is forgiving enough if your more the beginner.

- Burros is actually a reef break, it breaks right in front of Palladium south of punta mita

By ~Ben , 01-09-2007

Burros - Fun wave, nice shoulder to it. Needs a little bigger swell to have some speed. Keep an eye on belongings on the beach, Feb. 06 .. got food poisoning while camping there, while I lay in the jungle puking just behind camp some one went through our stuff and walked off with 3000 dollars worth of Nikon photo gear. Not sure if it was someone from that damn resort or a local. I would hope it was a fat sunburned american though. Watch for the Chupacabra!!

Lots of other breaks around. Will love to go back
