Little Gem! - Found it along the highway to Puerto Vallarta. A little tough finding it. Fun little righthander which breaks over a large reef shelf and peels right along towards the cliff. Only saw two other people out...by then I was already leaving! Check it out! A good alternative wave if you are in the area of barra de navidad. Tecuan is also another good one!
