Punta Burica is located in one of the most remote, wild places in Costa Rica. Named for the local indigenous people of the area, it can be accessed by 4x4 during the dry season (December-March) but best access is by boat. The point picks up swells from the south/southwest. It is a very powerful point/reef break at the tip of Costa Rica on the border of Panama. When the swell is right Punta Burica rivals Pavones and is much less crowded. It feels like you are truely at the "end of the world'.
