near el hueco and piscinas in talara - but you might need a guide to get you across the maze of dirt-tracks from the pan-americana (see the El Hueco description). Note that these two breaks are inverted on the map.

Lobitos - I am just back from 3 weeks stay in Lobitos. The surf was not always pumping but the days were spent swiming, fishing, rooming around. The village is great and its people are incredibly nice. No problem in Lobitos. I stayed in a family house which was perfect. Because it was safe, a great atmosphere between all surfers, a nice wooden house (fresher than the concrete ones), and Noemi is an incredible cook (I am french!). The place is known as Darwin's because he is the local wellknown surfer and so everybody knows him in the village. Enjoy your trip !

JA?? - To everyone who makes coments without know. I am from there, local for years before we saw JA arrived like running away from someone o somewhere, so everything what has been said before probably is true, to everyone who want to know who you are dealing with.
He is a good bodyboarder, but not the best in the hueco pls (did you like that guy bra? hehehe)and about his brother mmmm just has arrived and still gets some bad habits.
You want a better place to stay??? Ask for "La Casa de Nacho"and "Lobowasi" on the town. Also, these days there are a couple of good options on front of the point, for a few more coins. If that is not a problem for you, I advise...the bungalows, for sure!
Don't forget, respect the locals...and enjoy!

JA - I give respect to anyone who would rather surf El Hueco and not Lobitos . The police in Peru are usually corrupt and your email is exactly the demonstation of the beeeeeg gap between the mentality of Limenos and the people of the rural areas.I think The sand is still blowing in your ears.
