This spot works with storm swells ("nortes", huracanes, tropical storms, etc.). One or two days after a storm hits Camaronera, wake up early and watch the glassy barrels that Veracruz has to offer.
There are no hotels around the spot, but you can camp on the beach, and buy supplies (water, food, etc.) in the restaurant (called las Gaviotas) in front of the spot. The town "Camaronera" is 500 meters before reaching the beach break, on the highway.
It’s a good wave, but it doesn’t break very often. It has perfect peaks, and a lot of the waves you get are barrels!!!
