The bottom at Esterillos Este is sandy. Sometime the waves are good here, but neighboring beaches are more popular amongst surfers.

Usually the waves are better at Esterillos Centro and Esterillos Oeste. Waves at the above-mentioned beaches are faster and break good during upcoming tide. In 2016 the World Surf League (WSL) organized the Costa Rica Open Pro men’s and women’s qualifying series (QS) event in Esterillos Este. Watch out for crocodiles, especially during the rainy season!
