El Silencio in Lima is an exposed point break that does not work very often. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south southwest. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for urchins and rocks.
