you had to pay?? - WTF, you don't need to pay to get in the place, and maybe it was a closeout because of the swell size, and you DO NOT NEED TO PAY that kind of toll in the dirt rode just, if they dont let you pass, there is a dirt road that pases just at the side, less than 1 meter, with out a toll, are you from peru?? because i go there almost every weekend and all summer and i dont have to pay nothing.

Hrm... - We went to check out this break yesterday. It's past the 11 sole toll, so from Lima it's 14 soles just to get there from tolls.

We found the entrance easy enough. The road is horrible. It's a good 5 minute drive and there are a ton of large rocks and bumps in the road (4x4 not required, but not a bad idea).

Anyhow, we start to finally get close to the beach and it's all closed off. You have to pay 5 soles just to get into the area. You'd think that they would have fixed the road if they are going to be charging money just to get in. We decided not to even bother as the road was so bad, we didn't want to come back even if it was nice and we didn't want to pay just to look and leave.

Great place - I surfed here in late May. I caught it 6-8 ft and fun as all hell. It was too crowded but what good break isn't when its on? The left jacks up at the end of the rock cliff and then just reels north for about 100 yards at least. You can take off in a few other spots down the line and avoid most of the crowd. When its big the waves break hard against the rocks and the splash washes all the bird shit into the water. There was like three inches thick of bird shit on those rocks and the water got loaded with it. I advise wearing ear plugs because that can't be good. All in all, great wave in a pretty deserted (May) place. This place is a little south of san bartolo (about 15 minutes or so). I swear that it felt colder here than in San Bartolo even though it wasn't that much further south. Peru gets tons of swell. I can't wait to go back.
