The best time to come and try this wave is from April to November. If Serena doesn’t work out, we have several other breaks located 10 to 30 minutes from Casa Swell like Playa Teta, San Carlos, Palmar, Rio Mar, Chame Banks. If one of these spots doesn’t work out, there is most of the time another spot around that will allow some surfing.
