Punta Roca La LibertadEdit Spot
La Libertad can be a dangerous town. There are many unsavory characters who are often armed. Thieves abound...but so does good food, cheap beer and excellent and consistent surf. Plus it is easy to get to for long 4 day weekends from the US. The Punta Roca restaurant offers excellent food and insider knowledge. Try to stick around your hotel and the restaurant area, especially at night. Other areas can be dangerous, use common sense and don't flash cash or jewlery.
An outstanding and hollow right point break. A real classic. Long hollow lines with plenty of power. About 3 distinct sections with the middle usually best. Often thought of as a tropical Rincon.
Easy as can be. Taxis or rental cars straight from the International airport, about 20 minutes away.
