Caracoles in North East Coast - Dominican-Republic is an exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around low tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of the strong rips here.
