 Additional Information

Going ealy morning maximizes your chances of scoring great waves. Anyone can surf it, but careful when is big, because the wave is really powerful. The rips can be insanely strong. Fully exposed beach so there is always swell. There is a 90% chance that every wave will just close out. When it gets too big at 6 ft ot larger it will definitely close out.

Atmosphere

No crowd whatsoever. Plus the beach is so big there's space for anyone. If you drive past the hotel like 15 minutes the beach opens up. It's shaped really flat (like Lajas), unlike in front of the hotel where you're on a slope. So when is big in front of the hotel, you can check out this area of the beach that's flatter and usually has smaller waves than the ones in front of the hotel.

General

Without wind is as good as Venao, not a chance. One of the most famous beaches in Chiriqui, because of its proximity with David. It has an infrastructure of hotels, bars and restaurants. Have a residential area. The street is paved to the beach.
Help the local surf, which consists of children of fishermen who do not have as bought their tables.
