this spot is on the carribian side, so it is not very consistent, but when it is working it is a short, speedy, very poverfull wave, that sort of, just like puerto escondido, comes out of nowhere you do not see the sets coming, then it jacks up and hammers.
totally friendly. I was out there with my friend and four brazillian guys, and brazillian guys are not known to be friendly in the water i know, but it was something else here, everybody was smiling and laughing from the power of the wave.

Inside and outside - There is and outside dumpers. Outside is really quick, hollow and powerful. Inside is around the reef a bit, you can see the swell lines coming in and it is much more mellow. Inside is speedy with hollow sections and supper fun.
