Atmosphere

If the swell period becomes too long, the waves tends to close out. Take care about ripetide because you'll often surf alone there.

General

The fog named 'garua' is quite depressing during austral winter months.
The village is quiet. People are kind even if a part of the population is very poor. It's a typical coastal village from Peru (in the middle of nowhere). Here you're far from the surf elite of Lima.
Nice food in the main street.
Easy to go to LIMA as the village is located on the Panamerican.
No worries regarding traveling with boards in buses.
Hotel Grau provides a good overview on the waves and the family which manges this small hotel is nice.
