MORRO NEGRITO Surfcamp and AccommodationPacific, Chiriqui, Panama
MORRO NEGRITO surf camp & lodge accommodation
There are no more than twenty surfers at a time, so the dozen breaks on the islands are never crowded. Accommodation is formed by bamboo huts and in the evening, surfers gather in the open-air dining area for meals and to watch the day's surf videos. Diving, world class fishing, exploring the island on horseback or just relaxing in a hammock are other favourite occupation at Morro Negrito, which has a variety of wild life including monkeys, deer and many types of birds.
Accommodation is formed by bamboo huts on the side of a hill overlooking the Pacific. Water is supplied by a fresh water spring with a 50 foot waterfall on a hilltop that has been piped down for drinking and showering. Electricity is supplied by solar energy and a generator. In the evening, surfers gather in the open-air dining area for meals and to watch the day's surf videos.
Surf School & Surfaris
Daily surf lessons for beginners and boat trips to surf spots for more experienced surfers. The head coach is Jeff Healion, who worked previously at Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. Daily guided tours by boat (surfaris) for experienced surfers.
The Big island has a sandy beach and small fun breaks. The Small island is a thirty minute boat ride away. This is the island with the largest waves. On the north side there are lefts and on the south side there are right breaking waves. The most famous spots are "Nestles", a right and left-hand cloud break that can handle 20-foot plus swells, and "P-Land", a barrelling left that breaks over a huge submerged table top reef.
Tropical climate, no wetsuits necessary! Two seasons: Dry season from December through April, with warm winds blowing offshore. Waves are smaller but the wind offshore. Wet season from April to November. More consistent swell, more showers and wind onshore.
