The Surf

The 3 main waves you will be surfing when staying at Hotel Los Mangos consist of the most well-known right point breaks in the region. . Punta Mango, located about a 5 minute walk from the property is a fast hollow wave breaking down a cobblestone point surrounded by beautiful mountains, a tube addict’s paradise. Seldom will you see a local here other than your surf guide. Get ready for a lot of speed and some unforgettable tubes. Punta Mango is the east coast’s version of the perfect wave. Las Flores, which starts in front of the rocky outcrop at the tip of the point with a fast hollow section as the bottom changes from rock to sand. The wave then bends through the sand bottomed inside keeping an open face and offering more barrel sections. It’s a fun wave for medium to experienced surfers. Tides play an important role at this wave and some currents can be found as the tide shifts. La Ventana, is a super fun, mellow beach break that works better on a smaller swell. There are also more right points that you can score with the local knowledge of your guide, such as La Vaca, El Toro and more.
