This a very nice beach with a variety of waves. very consistent with warm water all year. If you are in Costa Rica dont miss it.
Playa Pelada is a laid back spot. We have a sunset every night. Dont worry about the fire nobody cares. Turn up the music. I catch a lobster whenever I get the urge for one.
A whole lot to do. The fishing is incredible. The diving is good. Nightlife close by and there is surf every day. The crowds are just enough people in the water to make it fun. Check it out on www.aventurapelada.com

pretty dead on - on a big swell with a high tide the olgas right will work but not for long. you will know if its going to be breaking because if the swell is big enough the outer reef will be breaking at low tide.the shorebreak is really fun too.
