About Quepos Jetty

The original Quepos Jetty used to peel point-like into the rivermouth before the large Pez Vela marina was constructed, which everyone thought would destroy the wave. However, the new harbour wall and exit point for the river estuary have conspired to build an even better version of the wave. Mushy and slow at waist to chest (longboards), but anything bigger will peel extremely fast, with barrel sections and no place for cutbacks. Needs solid SW to W swell and lower tides. Also weak beachbreak best on big S swell.

Wear ear plugs as the water is polluted if rainy, plus there is a lot of boat traffic.
