Richard from United States
“Have surfed this area many times, Saladita, the Ranch, Trancones point. Great surf place. Good local vibe. Small waves can always be counted on and in any given 7-10 days you will have one or two bigger days. There is increasing danger with the drug cartel violence. Good food at Lordes place.”
