A quick and hollow right tube breaking near the beach. A fickle wave for this area. Needs the right swell to turn on. More suited for bodyboarding, shallow at low tide with urchin covered boulders. Tubier than many nearby waves but more inconsistent as well.
Full on scene in the summertime at this beach. A disco right on the point and lost of good seafood. Empty during the winter. Lots of waves around if this one isn't working.
A maybe spot. Overlooked because there are more consistent spots.

El Silencio - This wave has a very nice drop, right in front on 'La peluda'... if you are lucky you'll find the right handed wave connected to the wave in the sand where a thick tube is made and if you don't care about your board you go just ahead. I've also surfed the left side of this wave, pick the wave which is a long wall, fast in the drop, very slow after. You can get nice barrels in the right wave.

Where to stay - Good place to stay is in Playa Silencios with a dude named Tito Escobar. Cool dude and cheap stay. close to many point breaks all along the coast. Just stop in Playa Silencio and ask for Tito, everyone know him
