Escondido in Manabi is an exposed reef and point break that is usually a safe bet. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast. Clean groundswells prevail and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest.The break here is a left hand point. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of rocks and isolation.
