Atmosphere

I stayed in this little fishing village called Las Barras de Piaxtla, from there you can access all the spots. If you are a group of at least 4 people you can hire a boat to take you to Patoles, which is a lot easier then taking a car. The other spots are pretty easy to reach with a car. Las Barras de Piaxtla is the last secret for surfers. There is nobody around, you will have the wave to yourself.

General

It is pretty remote, so if you want to party hard with crowds this place is not for you. On the other hand if you want to go and just hang out with a group of friends or your girl, this place is perfect. There is also Sea Kayak, Fishing, Biking and Bird watching in the estuary.
