RE: La Ticla

How are the crowds at La Ticla?  Right out of high school I stayed at Ticla and at La Placita for 4 months back in 1981. I have not been back to Ticla since the early 80's, but I have done several trips to Rio Nexpa and I was really amazed on how much Nexpa had developed. Nexpa still had a very good vibe to it even though there were now much larger crowds now vs yester-year. Can you still camp at Ticla or has all that changed? I'm hoping it hasn't changed too much, but I'm sure it has.

RE: La Ticla

yeah, Nexpa blew up since I wanna say 2003 or so was the first time I went there and in 2008 it was very crowded. The family built up the little village, its quite nice, but attracts the crowds. Ticla is growing to. They were chopping down the coco trees behind Amalia's place. Soon those will be all gone. It's a total shame, but the land owners need the money that surfers bring in..Oh, and this right we tried to keep a secret, its no secret anymore and its in a surfer's guide book if you know where to look. The wave is heavy and definitely not a beginners wave so it will command its own authority. There was a Mexican movie called Amar a Morir that takes place and filmed at our favorite secret break, now overrun by the Guad Squad and mexicans on holiday.

Hey Jason, if you haven"t noticed, once a place gets electricity and the internet, its history. These are the things I go on a surf trip to get away from. You can take all this modern garage and put it where the sun don"t shine. Overcrowding, is just one major result of this crap. Too bad you guys don"t know how to rough it a little. What kind of surfers are they churning out these days?

Ticla will never get developed by outsiders. It's communally owned by the indigenous people of Ostula. You can't even marry your way in there.

The locals have built some new facilities all along the coast south of La Ticla- at Ixtapilla, Palma Sola, La Manzanillera, Faro,Colola, Maruata Viejo, Maruata.
More will be built soon...

Here's a map of the new Parador Turisticas south of La Ticla:

Better do a little research before going. Haven't been in 2 years but showed up right after drug wars hit La Placida, shoot outs and muerte. Last summer camp at beach fully robbed at gunpoint, first hand report a good friend got pistol whipped, Robbed the whole camp, Kids that did it were supposedly found dead a few days later, then heard second hand campers got robbed at gunpoint again later in the year. Leave the women and children at home and go get some uncrowded (after this) waves.
