Its 4 breaks on 4 jetties - 3 small jetties and one larger one leading into a bay. Usually one will work on large swell. Its always offshore as these waves wrap in. To me this is the reason I like surfing cartagena over barranquilla. Breaks 20 to 30 times a year on small jetties and 5 to 10 on large one. I get shacked in tiny barrels every time this breaks. When this is too small go to Las Velas, if thats crowded, there are 25 more jetties with waves. For me, surfing cartagena starts here.

3 times year - This break that starts in front of the Hilton breaks 3 times a year, normally in December. If you are not here all of November to February, you most likely wont be surfing Hilton.

Hiltons - Just stayed at a hotel overlooking the hilton surf spot in cartagena. It was about 2ft maybe 3. Some people had bodyboards but noone had a clue how to do that let alone surf. It looks like a fun righthander and has alot of potential.
