Directions to Playa Teta
Playa Teta took its name from the river that runs in front of it, the Rio Teta. Located few kilometers from Coronado town, this beach offers 2 great breaks for you to try out:
Frente de Teta (The Front)
It is a rock/sand break located in front of the river's mouth. This break has long lefts at low tide and can have some rights at medium to high tide.
The break sometimes shifts to the right of the river's mouth depending on the river flow at the time.
Punta de Teta (the Point)
Located directly to the left of the river mouth, this point break is over a rock bottom and has both lefts and rights with long rides and great tubes. This break is at its best when the medium tide is going up.
Besides cool surfing, this beach can also be enjoyed by the family and whoever is looking to sunbathe and relax while reading their favorite book. There is a river right there as well, and is suitable for swimming if you are not a waves person.
It is important to know that there are no facilities around, so it is a good idea to bring your own umbrellas for shade and your own food and drinks.
The street to get to the beach is not sign posted. When you are driving in the Panamerican Highway from the city, you need to get in into your left, right after Punta Barco beach. The entrance has a bus stop with a sign saying 'Punta Barco Viejo'. If you are driving and see an entrance with a sign saying 'Lagartija' you know you went to far.
