LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



Surf Breaks in Cambutal
Cambutal is known for its numerous surf breaks ranging from beginner to advance as surf is typically in the three to six foot range but can surely double overhead or more. Dry season, January through April is the best season for shape as the winds blow offshore almost continually. August through October is the best season for size.

A short description on nearby breaks:

Cambutal Beach
Cambutal Beach Break is located directly in front of the Hotel Playa Cambutal. It is a fun break with sand bottom. Considered best at medium to high tides with rights and lefts. Nonetheless, also fun at low tide.

411 (Cuatro Once)
Considered one of the most popular breaks in Cambutal and located approximately 10 minutes away from the hotel. Certainly a favorite point break during medium to high tide consisting of a long right hander over rock ledge bottom.

Dinosaurios
Located adjacent to 411. Quite powerful break with rock bottom break with rights and lefts at medium to high tide.

Horcones
Horcones Beach Break is located down the beach from Dinosaurios. It is a sand bottom beach break with, both, rights and lefts. Between medium to low tide, look for a favorite spot right across from a small river mouth. Excellent break at high tide also.

Corto Circuito (Pedregal)
Located at the end of the dirt road from the hotel. It is a rock bottom point break with a very powerful peak that breaks over a rock ledge and throws a nice tube after peeling the point approximately 80  yards.
