Chacarita Surf Guide

Chacarita in Golfo de Nicoya is a fairly exposed beach break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the best swell direction is from the south southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around high tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Hazards include rips and polluition.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
