This is one of the first surfed spots in the Caribbean Coast of Colombia therefore is a little crowded. Crowds are Ok if you show respect. But remember it is always empty during the week and what we call a crowd won't probably match with your concept of "crowded". Obviously depending on where you're from. Very fun peaky wave.
It is probably the most consistent wave ot the area. If it's not rideable most likely it's falt everywhere. The place picks up any little swell.
Watch out for your stuff since there is a few local ratboys that like to take what's not theirs.
There is a Reggar Bar right in front of the break so don't be surprise if you find yourself listening to Bob Marley in the middle of a nice ride. NIce Girls.

Cool wave - I live in Florida, But came to colombia for a couple weeks late this december. I didnt bring along any of my boards due to the lack of trust with the airliner. i should have brought them, when i came upon this spot, Pradomar right next to climandiaro somehting like that, right near barranguilla city. This is a classic spot. It has lots of current running so prepare to paddle alot, the line up is awesome nice people, be nice to them and they are cool with you. The spot is really rocky but it has its ways in, ask someone there and they will show you. Just walk down a stretch or inlet of rocks and jump in when theres no waves coming by, paddle to the line up and ride this excellent long powerfull wave. Great for all surfers just watch out for the rocks. the Outside is sand bottom but along the coast its rocky. This is one of the best waves i have ridden, super fast. Friendly Locals....Theres also a local shop right next to the spot where u can rent and by equipment. 10,000 pesos an hour. 4 american dollars...
