Atmosphere

the scenery is reduced to its basic elements: a strip of dead straight sand, a line of powerful surf, a huge empty ocean and an enormous curving horizon.

Monterico to Paredon - The profile of the beach is very steep form high tide to low tide making a strong rip tide especialty when high to low tide. The waves are typically 4-8' with or without a breeze but the waves break close to the beach with a nice barrel but without much flow to them because of the constant rip tide effect.

Not for surf - Hi, I know the Guatemala coast and Monterrico not is good for surf, is very dificult that you can find one day in aceptable conditions, normaly is very closed, for that there are not surfers there.

not much - Beautiful country, beautiful people, great food. Wonderful place to visit, and it may actually break, but I saw nothing that was surfable and I checked out Hawaii, and Montericco. There may be other breaks, I just didn't see this one, or notice any potential, the sand drops off steep and the tides move little. Again, go visit, but don't bother carrying your board with you, bring your hiking boots...
