Guacuco Surf Guide

Guacuco in Isla Margarita is an exposed beach break that has reliable surf. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the southwest. 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.

Albert Philipp Tarter from Venezuela
“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).”
