Other activities & things to do: Spearfish, snorkel, wakeboarding, kayaking, and more. You can also explore Monte Christi nearby or checkout Cabarete and Encuentro less than 3 hrs away.

Best beginner spot & flat water spot in the area: Kite Buen Hombre

Best wave spot(s) in the area: There’s a reef break that you can wave ride, but Buen Hombre is definitely better known as a flat-water freestyle kiteboard spot
