Punta Roca is the wave closest to La Libertad. It's a legendary wave, but the dangers are apparent. The cemetery you walk through on the way is filled with thugs and criminals looking to rip off tourists. The waves are heavily localized. And none of this even touches upon the fact you're in some seriously powerful waves with Rocas just waiting to knock you out.
Do you need a local guide? Should you rent a 4x4 or is a compact car fine? Are there hidden breaks?
