The spot is on la ruta del sol(sun route) in Guayas.

Atmosphere

On high tide with a small swell you can find no waves. The best tides are low and rising tides but if it is a big swell all tides will do.

Good little break - Went to Coitos Sunday March 12, small day 4 to 5 feet, two peaks were presetn one seemed to be from rocks below the surface. Nice left and rights easy to paddle back out.
