Surf Breaks in Hacienda Iguana
Is a fast, tubing beach break generally with many peaks and A framing waves. With larger, long period swells it can be a very heavy wave. Generally best around mid to high tide but it changes with every swell. Low tide is surfable but is just generally a faster, barreling wave. Best for intermediate to expert surfers but can offer some fun waves for beginners in low surf season (October to March). Will hold most size waves up to around double overhead.
Is a horse-shoe shaped rock/reef break that offers tapering lefts and rights with a mellow take off and a more vertical inside section. This break can be good for long boarders or short boarders. This break amplifies swells and usually bigger than Colorados but softer. Usually best from low to mid tide but there are some inside sections that break at a high tide. Can be good for all ability levels, depending on the swell size.
Los Perros Point
Located at the very north point of Hacienda Iguana.This is a fickle right point break that only breaks with large swells.

You can to the south end of Amarillo in about 40 minutes or drive there in 25 minutes. It’s a beach break with fun waves, generally half the size of Colorados. Best at mid to high tide. Good for all ability levels.
Gigante is the bay just south of Amarillo. The swell has to be huge for Gigante to break at it’s south or north ends, but it is a good option when everywhere else is too big. Good for all ability levels.
Manzanillo is a left point break with a rock bottom that needs a little bit of swell to break. Breaks best with a SW swell. Ideal tide is mid to high tide as it is generally too shallow at a low tide. Good for intermediate to expert surfers. Only accessible by boat, approximately 30 minutes from Iguana.
