Crowdednero - Place can get very crowded.up to 50 guys out at a time. However, it is a wave pool with take of spots everywhere from way outside to inside. There is an inside section that is heavy fast and shallow that most of the beginners overlook or lack the skill to surf. There is also outside that is shallow and most stay away. It has got a little over run by disrespectful tourists that don't understand the rules of surfing. Generally a lot of kooks taking off and not making the section. Can get very frustrating. Beautiful place, insanely fun wave. If you are an expert surfer you will not have a problem finding good waves here.

Bocas & Carenerro - Was here mid-December. Break was working well. Tough to get to considering you need a boat to wait outside of break for you. Seems a little inconvenient. But waves were consistent, and easy to get back out.

just got back - surfed it fun during the first week of jan 2007 - head high and ripable - pretty crowded but easy to get waves if you are aggressive - you pretty much have to be or you will just sit and watch as locals drop in so far up the point they they dont make any of the waves.
