🌊 Burros - Punta Mita - Nayarit - Mexico

 
Also known as Punta Burros. Burros is an excellent right point reef break. The main peak at Burros is a fast rippable right with a short left. It has enough power so that shortboarders can rip it, yet is forgiving enough to be tons of fun on a longboard too. Another peak closer to the beach will have good lefts and the occasional fast right. Burros is known to hold any size swell, as well as be a wave magnet when other spots aren't breaking. This is a classic Punta Mita surf spot. Consistency is year-round with the best conditions in summer.
 
Located in Punta Mita on the north end of Banderas Bay in Nayarit, Mexico, the warm water and the variety of breaks make it the perfect destination for surfers at any skill level. While there are plenty of beaches, they are mostly privately accessed. El Anclote Beach however is publicly accessed. The area consists of luxury resorts, residential developments, and golf courses, making it one of the most exclusive resort communities in all of Mexico.

🌊 Chacahua - Lagunas de Chacahua - Oaxaca - Mexico

 
Chacahua is a mellow, normal to long right point break. Longboards and SUPs are best here. Getting to Chacahua may be a little bit of a mission, however, the rewards lie in the remoteness and natural beauty of the lagoons. Oftentimes there are no crowdsβ€”another plus! Consistency is fair with the best conditions mainly during summer months.
 
Chacahua is an isolated village located within the Lagunas de Chacahua in Oaxaca, Mexico. It is remote and most resources are limited, however restaurants, convenience stores and a few lodging options are available. Supplies should be brought in.

The Ranch

 
The Ranch is a clean and fast point break with options going left and a lesser known right. The shape of the wave is compared to that of Trestles, in San Diego, California. It is a remote location, best accessed by boat and or jet ski. Driving there can be tricky, so find a local and get directions. Shortboards and funboards are ideal here, but longboards can be good too. Consistency is year-round with the best conditions during summer months.
 
La Union is an isolated and small fishing village in Guerrero, Mexico. With only 4 to 5 houses on the beach, there is limited land access to the break. The village has very few restaurants and a few very small shops; it is best to gather supplies on the way in from El Roble, which is 2 km away. The closest and major towns with great facilities are Lazaro Cardenas and Zihuatanejo, both about 1 hour away.
