Welcome to Puerto Chicama


The lengthy left break is caused by a shallow, flat beach and on the right wave on the right day at the right time, it’s possible to hitch a 3.2km ride here on a 2m wave! Good waves can be found year-round, but the marathon breaks only come about when the conditions are just so, usually between March and June. The water is very cold for much of the year, except for December through March. You can rent boards at Los Delfines for S25 per half-day.
