Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America








The town of Masachapa is right next to Montelimar. In fact, the Montelimar Beach resort is on the other side of the lighthouse in the photos below. If you're a surfer it's a place you would probably like. Even at low tide the waves are decent but when the tide comes in the waves are awesome. Most of them are in the 4 to 6 foot range but there are occassional 8 to 10 footers as well. It's one of the best places I've ever been to for body surfing as you can routinely ride waves for as long as you can hold your breath.

I found it pretty neat to watch the way they put boats into the water. There's nothing high tech about the system. They simply use 2 logs and roll the boat on them until they get to the waters edge. Once they get to the water they just wait for a big wave to come in and lift up the boat.
