While there we met up with Belize (Jose) by chance. He was helpful for a couple of surfers new to the area, and worth the money we gave him.
We also happened upon the Villa Ordonez in Pochomil Viejo, which I would highly recommend.
We went during January (off season)and liked the surf better than the beach break conditions we were finding in San Juan Del Sur (Yankee, Hermosa). It was perfect for a beginner and intermediate.
