Punta Achiote is at the north end of Playa Hermosa, , (not the one by Jaco but near Uvita) almost exactly 13.5 km from Dominical. It is hard to find and there is no marker. Look for a turnoff from the highway that is a rocky dirt road. It curves to the right (towards the beach). Follow that about 75m to a stream. Cross the stream (unless the water is really high most cars can do it). About 100m ahead and to the right you will see the point.
It breaks best from chest high to overhead, most bigger sets close out. At the right tide, there is a nice right that goes about 100 meters and a left that heads into a shallow cove. When the swell is big the takeoff point is out by the end of the point. On smaller days take off further in where you will see some rocks just off the point. Never really crowded.
