I didn't spend much time there, but everyone was cool. Location is really close to beach and they have the coolest outdoor shower as well. Say hi to Corea if you run into him. He is an amazing surfer, they all are.

Cacho and the crew there made our visit awesome. We rented surfboards there - and being able to access the boards, then return them, next to the break was ideal. Both our kids got surf lessons from the team at Cacho's - Maryam and Cristofer...More
