Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the east northeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks and sharks.

Visitor Reviews of Guacuco

Albert Philipp Tarter from VENEZUELA writes:

Playa Guacuco is a beachbreak that is reliable if you are looking for waves between 0.6 and 1.8 meters. It is quite consistent all over the year, altough winter season is known as the best, being responsible for higher and stronger waves. Located in the south of the caribbean, it occurs that hurricanes heading north 'shave' the island and wave height increases up to 3 meters. On the other hand, everyday waves present the flaw to be too short and too irregular to allow longer rides (superior to 40 seconds).
