RE: waves/water tempuratures

I'll be there in July, like last year.
And usually it's either surfing with a spring suit or maybe a 3/2 fullsuit.
Depends on what you are used to and how easily you get cold.

RE: waves/water tempuratures

Mancora is outside the grips of the frigid Humboldt current, instead its graced by the warmer Panama current flowing down. So, that said, its definitely not full steamer material like Chicama et al further south, but its not Central American board shorts stuff either. Due to space limitations, for my trip I (stupidly) used a Spring suit all the way down to Chicama and beyond - way to cold for that there by the way - and Mancora was about the ideal temperature for it.

Best of luck, hope you score it.
