Lotsa fun - Went there once several years ago and magically caught decent swell - gotta a lotta of fun lefts. Good, punchy and long enough wave...although the "reef" was intimidating (just a bunch of huge boulders that looked like they were just dumped there). This area is super beautiful/tropical and absolutely packed with huge palm trees...your non-surfing significant other will enjoy it, too.

- If the break right out on the main beach isn't good on any given day, Alonso at San Pancho Surf shop is definitely the man to go to to find the lesser-known spots. This page has an interview with him and how to get in contact with him: http://sanpancholife.com/news.php?num=176
He also heads the Nayarit surf federation and plans surf contests in San Pancho. Lots of action!
He is a super great surfing source for the area.
