Take the highway 9 until the km 175 and you'll see a bridge over the laguna of Jose Ignacio. The spot is at the rivermouth. Besides the bridge there is a parking and a windsurfing school.

youll have no problem if you respect the locals and you will catch a lot of waves ,unless you are brazilian also known as macacos.
The place is very nice, the beach is clean and you have the town of Jose Ignacio near that is very pretty and has another great spot known as el pueblo.
A great tubular wave, respect the locals and you will have no problem at all.
A great spot, one of the best ones in Uruguay in my opinion with Zanja Honda, la Moza, la Barra, el Barco de la Pedrera.
A very hollow wave
when break good is one of the best waves in uruguay, exelents barrels

Good stuff - I have been bodyboarding this wave at +6feet some 5 years ago. Very hollow & powerfull beachbreak. Just me and a couple of friends, epic day. Very long tube rides in my mind.......
