In the area of El Silenco, take a right (when heading south) at about km38 on the Panamerican (the old road), through any of the passages between the roadside restaurants (avoid the suicidal Maitre D's who'll throw themselves under your vehicule to try and get your trade....) Head for thw new apartment complexes (yeuch) and the line of small eateries on the cliff top. Steps down to the beach. Great view of Senoritas and Caballeros.

Park at the cliff top by the food stalls, get to know the guys, they'll keep an eye on your car; the food is pretty good and cheap in these places as well if you feel like returning the favor.
A fun wave when small, which can get very hollow and fast in the right conditions. It can get pretty powerful and rewards with great barrels.
One of a set of 'regional classic' waves in this short section of coastline. One of the best rights in the area. Definetely worth a visit.

Good rides there!!!! - Is the best "right" in Punta Hermosa, sometimes the wave stand up behind you and let you score hard ......cool , sometimes crowded but always make me feel good when i spent 03 hrs surfing there. You can go till the average rocks in a good day, and if it's not working as well , just paddle to señoritas and take some lefts ....hahahahah....
