La Punta is the Surfing basecamp in Montanita, you can enjoy this Point break with a beautiful right wave, and a few beach breaks with consistent right and left waves. Sunsets here are astonishing, you are going to enjoy the peace of the neighbourhood, because we are away from the noise. This place also keeps the soul of old Montanita with the typical architecture, sandy alleys, small shops, and kids and dogs playing together at the beach.
