Go in low tide and you'll find a pool. Wave breaks at high tide, best tide movement is rising tide.
You can park your car in front of the point, beware of leaving expensive objects on sight.
Estero de Platano is one of Esmeralda best waves, it only works on high-tide with medium-big swells.
Beware of the rocks and fallen trees!
Estero de Platano is a really small village, just a few houses and a restaurant (I won't recommend to eat there).
There is no place to spend the night there, so make sure is just a one day trip!
