We love this place! We surf here every year and love it. There's a great mix of waves to play on and something to entertain all levels of surfers. Go see Roberto at Surf Mazatlan. He's the BEST!

Take a Cerritos-bound bus to the end of the road. Many shops in a strip building. Many truly stick-built restaurants and shops. Great beach. Protected by rocks to the west, creating a cove. Beautiful water. Around 2-3PM, families come to the beach and set up...More
