An excellent surf spot, La Felicidad, is located in Esterillos Centro. The spot is named after the hotel that is located directly in front. The waves here are not as round as in Playa Hermosa but it's less crowded with surfers, too. Watch out for crocodiles around the river mouth that is located near by, sometimes in the rainy season they get washed into the Pacific Ocean.
