there are several classic right point breaks along the north coast of the Yucatan peninsula, and they work when there is either a strong low over lousiana, miss., alabama, etc. Go to the map page at the mexicosurfshop com site.

There are right points, but, there called reef breaks for the intellectual traveler; mangroves break up the wave patterns over sand bottoms and there are NO rock reefs because of tectonic activity. The perpetual onshore trades make this venture sketchy at best.

Who is the kook natgeo? The Mex Caribe starts in xcalak and stretches up to isle holbox. The yucatan does have some decent spots on the other side as well though. Check out wannasurf to see detailed descriptions and tide reports. Of course the best time is during storm swells like two weeks ago.

If you refer to NOAA index and consider depth, salinities, currents, there is NO Mexical Caribbean- it's a non-mixing area because of many factors, firstly being the center of the Mesozoic extinction because of massive asteroid hit and resulting crater in the 'gulf' and  environmental  destruction on land. If Barbie and Ken want to make up names, that's there perousal, but ,I'll be catching the bars and reefs ,because, I  my research and you did your grammmaammmaaa! hahahhaaaaa!
