big is not always important! - This spot is amazing! You can surf that spot fast allways, it doesn´t matter if is small or big, because it never closed. Try to get there at the left of the beach break or by the rocks. If there is too big (3 or 4 meters) try to past the beach break because by the rocks is a little bit dangerous. I like that spot when is 1.5 or 2 meters because in the second section you get barrels. Be carefull with the bottom at these section because there is fast no water (maybe 0.50 meters). At big swells don´t try to stay near the rocks because you can get a 3 or 4 meters quickly waves and you can hurts yourselve. There is no people around there to save you if you get troubles. Try to go with a group (4 or 6 mates) and with an allroad (4x4). ENJOY IT!!!!!!

Playa Grande is the one - Very proud to have surfed it in all sizes. and proud to have this wave near my summer house. This spot will kill you if the current is strong. Be in good shape, as you can see in the photos, you will not have fun if you are fighting to survive. By the way, this beach do not have lifeguards
