 Access

To access the spot you must walk from a town called La Entrada (another surf spot) and walk to the spot (impossible to use car here). It's a good walk because you have to walk on rocks and remember to go at low tide. The other way is by the street but then it's hard to find a parking spot. Ask natives for La Rinconada and they will be more than happy to take you.

Atmosphere

sometimes there are sharks, but they dont do much, if one gets close, just bat it away with your hand.

sounds like byron - Hola,this is my first post,what made me descide to register was what (LOCAL) SAID ABOUT HIS TOWN AND HIS CONCERN FOR ITS FUTURE......I dunno,personnally you either love or hate places like Montanita and I fall into the latter catagory.Most of the locals are fine but a handfull are far worse than the travelling space-cadets who frequent it..Please Montanita is nuthn like Byron Bay and if places like la entrada end up like montanita it will stuff up everything that is good about the place.............I will be in ecuador mid aprilo travelling with another aussie surfer and staying mainly in manabi provence,anyone wanna hook up and get some waves let us know....... brett

Beware - This spot is good, but if there are more than 3 people it is crowded, 5 is a zoo.I have bounced off the rocks here, actually, anyone who surfs here is going to get bounced.If you do, take off your leash or you will get pinned on the rocks and flogged. I have some nice scars from the barnacle covered rocks... which stick out even at high tide.It is a short short ride and a long hike.This spot used to be a secret, I'd skip it now.

By local , 20-12-2005

hey - please take this spot away from here, evrytime more and more people come, make problem in our village. they leave garbage. and we dont like it. surf ok, but please if you want to come here please respect us, our fishing tradition,our people oour culture, anytime know its oging to be like montañita and we dont want that, drugs and beer bad manners, we will respect you if you respect us. thank you for hearing.
