There is a reason why this surf spot close to Jaco is called Crazy Rock!

With the right swell the ocean sometimes creates perfect rights here. The rocks and cliffs at the southern end of the bay of Jaco are called Punta Guapinol, a bit to the right is Roca Loca. The wave breaks over a big rock. It is best surfed during low upcoming tide. Don’t go out here if you are not an experienced surfer!

The access isn’t easy, one has to climb down the cliff. With strong swell from the Southwest the rocks can create big, powerful waves, three times overhead is possible here.
