This can be a great wave,a perfect right point that can tube. I've never had it bad, and only a couple of cool people in the water, the rides can be super long and perfect on a good swell. Watch the coral at lower tides!

low key get away - Just spent 9 days in Punta de Mita, great little low key town, several beaches to surf at. Stayed at Villas Las Olas, great place, large suites, reasonable prices and super hospitable owners. Got the best recipe ever for tortilla soup!

Mita - I have been traveling to this area for 15 years and I currently own property in La Cruz. I do not know dave, and besides what is on this site I have never heard anything from travelers or locals about him. I do know that the locals (mexican, not expat) in this area are some of the friendliest, respectable and most loyal people you could ever meet. I know that if you are a decent honest person who shows respect than you will be treated the same. If the comments on this site are true than dave has obviously wronged the locals in some way and they have decided that he and his guests are no longer welcome. There are plenty of excellent cheap accomodations in the area go to one of them, not dave's.
