The province of Chiriqui has several islands in the Pacific that have really good surf. These islands are very remote and we offer to take you to this great surf and fishing destination. There is also excellent fishing in this area, and there is one particular spot in the area called "Hannibal Bank" that is world famous for catching marlin and sail fish. Most of the big fishing charter yachts in Central America go there to fish. The surf breaks are relatively unexplored, but here we will mention some of those that are known and offered by us.
Isla de Coiba has a number of surf spots, but most are un-surfed, and very difficult to find or get to even if you are on a boat. The island is gigantic, and only the south west side has surf.
Isla Montuosa is a small island on the opposite side of Hannibal Bank from Coiba. It has a good right rock bottom point with solid waves, and very consistent. It can get up to 25 feet faces on big swells and catches just about any swell, so it is rarely under 6 ft.
Isla Silva de Afuera has two breaks, one left and one right. The right is a big peak breaking over a shallow rock ledge at medium tide, and can throw a big tube, with steep drops and not much of a wall. A very short ride. The other break is a pretty good left that breaks over a rock reef at medium tide. The left has longer rides than the right, but it has a section in the middle that is very difficult to get around and the rocks on the inside are killer, so be careful. This spot catches almost any swell, and it is normally at least 4 ft.
Isla Silva de Adentro is another small island further inland from Isla Silva de Afuera, which has a right hand break over rock reef that can get really good if there is a good swell. It has a nice long ride with good tubes and lots of power.
Morro Negrito is located on the mainland, but to get there you must travel by land and boat. The surf can get good at Morro Negrito if there is a swell. It has about 5 breaks. The main break is located directly in front of the town of Morro Negrito, which is a left point break over rock bottom. It has another outer left point about 300 yards up the coast that also breaks over rock bottom, and has good tubes. On the other side, there is a beach break with rights and lefts. Then on the other side of the point, there is a river mouth sand bottom break that gets good lefts and rights when there is swell.
