This property is located near Playa Blanca. Breaks directly in front of the Hotel Iguanazul. During a strong enough swell, this wave appears far offshore. When it breaks, it breaks well and it breaks big - usually at least twice overhead. There is a strong channel current leading out, so it is not that hard to get into the lineup - which will probably be sparse.

This property is also located near Playa Junquillal. A ten minute walk down the beach from Hotel Iguanazul, this break can get really fun. During higher tides, there are many peaks that offer hollow, fast rights and lefts- the waves jack up off the sand bar very quickly creating a tough, but exciting drop in. It breaks very close to shore in shallow water over a sandy bottom.

This property is also located near Playa Negra. One of the breaks featured in Endless Summer 2. This is one of the Costa Rica's best spots. A rocky reef right-hand break, Playa Negra is fast, hollow and can hold some size. It's tends to be bigger than the other spots around here. Fast waves, rocky bottom, juicy barrels, and ripping locals make this a great break, but not for the beginner.
