Can be dangerous at low tide due to exposed rocks and reef.
P Land is rarely found smaller than head high and average size is about 4-5 feet overhead. The island break is a beautiful spot with coconuts growing all over the island.
World class break.

now? - After a slurry back in forth between camp haters and a multitude of well spoken supporters who hate cell phones it seems the comments board quieted down on Pland and Nestles aka the Morro Negrito camp blog. I was thinking of going here but after reading all this crap I think I'm going to either go elsewhere in Panama or just go back to Nicaragua or Mex. It seems to me that most of the people who had a blast are girls or europeans who loved being in the ocean and the jungle and I do to, but with proper waves to be had if I'm spending that kind of coin. I don't blame the owner for forwarding on letters and posts to defend himself and his obvious passion for what must be a pristine place. I'll just be going elsewhere as it's obvious to anyone with half a brain the waves here will not be World Class or even 'good' and that the boats will take you out once per day. Unless I'm living on a boat I'd rather be able to walk down to the beach and surf on holiday.

RE ihave been there comment - Read this comment, it is true. I have been there also. We got waves, nothing as represented by the pictures. Unless you are learning to surf you will be bummed even with solid swell. The camp is not bad, it is actually pretty cool and the staff was good. Just too many places to go and get epic quality, so if read through the boards and see all of the warnings, still go and think oops, only yourself to blame.

- P Land can be great. On the last day of our vacation it peaked at 10 feet and was perfect. It is not a wave for beginners as there are a lot of rocks which you need to be careful of, but it is a real classic. It is definitely not a Pipe or Backdoor type of wave, but still very very good, just need to hit it on an OK swell. Morro Negrito camp treated us well, the food was good and the people were friendly. However if you are used to 4/5 star hotels this is not the place for you as the accommodation is just a bit better than camping, so do not expect much. Sand bar is also another fun wave, long right break wave but make sure you have strong arms as the currents are tough. Overall a great place especially for the money.
