Even though lots of people surf here, there is around 7km of beach so you can usually find a good uncrowded peak. It jacks up quick and pounds straight down HARD, so you won't find any longboarders here.
After surf session you will wish to have a picnic there with a beer and sea food specialty Chevice, with clear thoughts, great ocean view and a good company.
Drive south from Jaco Beach on the Coastal Highway 34, go around Punta Guapinol, come to a small town of hotels and some houses, take semi-paved road after last building, stop wherever you see a peak.
Takes about 5 min from Jaco, 20 minutes driving South from Dominical. Always people surfing/watching at "the Tree". The small town is sometimes called Pochotal on maps.
Road runs right along beach for almost entire length so great free access anywhere, but watch valuables in car, they will get stolen.Where to Stay
