Surf spots


Carenero, where Tierra Verde Hotel is located is known as one of the best surf spots in Bocas del Toro. With a left-hand reef and bottom point break waves that break for about 100 yards along the edge of the reef, you’ll feel the beauty of the bigger-the-swell-the-better-the-waves surfology and connect a perfect barrel. It’s been said that Carenero’s waves resemble some spots in Fiji. The wave is very powerful and caters to an amazing barrel section which can last several seconds, so better hold on to your cojones.


Punch is a reef bottom right / left break which can get really good hosting three different peaks with different take-off zones.


Dumpers is a reef bottom left-hander with a steep drop and tube. Dumpers rides may not be as long as Punch or Carenero, but its amazingly large tube section might just lure you to try it anyway.
