Edit Spot

This break with a good swell can be as good and powerfull as Santa Catalina but the only diference is the non existing crowd of this place and that´s a good advantage... in Cambutal you will find diferent breaks in the area because is a huge coast line with waves breaking along coast there are beach breaks as well and other spots that can be reach by boat but you will find there very thick and big waves (15+ feet), Cambutal breaks receive swells from north and south and also west because of it´s geographical position so don´t miss it and visit this spot. see ya.

Additional Info:
Just bring two boards, some bug repelent and wax because you will surf a lot of waves along with your friends.


Normal: take the interamericana Highway until Divisa then take left heading towards Las Tablas, at Las Tablas Central Park take left and then the second right and drive towards the town of Tonosí, once you are in Tonosí go through the town and drive to the town of Cambutal once in Cambutal after crossing a small bridge you will see the water and right in front of you you will see Cambutal Surfcamp, there is a few options more to stay, like Boom shiva and Kambutaleko hostel.
Good luck...
