TOURS & ACTIVITIES
Playa Morrillo is only 5 mins away (1.5km) by car from the hotel.
People surfing Morrillo commonly state that the wave is world class. PlayaMorrillo is the most consistent beach break in the whole of Panama. Surfers come here when there are no waves elsewhere in Panama (at its best at 30cm). The reason for such consistent waves is for three main reasons. Morrillo has an unrestricted path all the way to the tip of South America, which means that any weather systems affecting the western coast of South America will be felt here. To the west of Morrillo is a set of mountains the change of depth into the sea provides a perfect platform for even the smallest swells to provide great waves. And lastly, the Morrillo river regularly feeds Playa Morrillo with sand to create a chain of moving sand banks which enhance the swells that arrive from the western coast of South America.
Morrillo is a hidden wave and not too far away is Playa Riena. If Morrillo is too big go to Playa Riena.
Best periods of the year to surf is summer time between December and April where there is a gentle offshore breeze that makes the wave stand up and prolong its duration.
Stayng at El Sol Morrillo you can look at the conditions of the wave from your shower, if it is too big for you, stay in bed or you have a multitude of close options to surf notably Playa Riena, Palo Seco, & Playa Malena!
