Mendihuaca in Caribbean Coast is an exposed beach break that has consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for dangerous rips.
