Don't think this is near to where you're thinking of going and hopefully all clear now.

worth knowing about though.

mexico is awesome.check out pascuales.
i didn't like the area around puerto vallarta/sayulita...bit too touristy, pricey and surf wasn't that good (at the breaks i found)

fly to PV,
get bus to Tecoman, get smaller bus to Pascuales. take a tent, or find a cheap room. Set alarm at 7am, have a coffee. 7.30 go get barrelled. 11.30am go have breakfast, then get in a hammock and relax while the onshores kick in.

nice and easy

Spent 2 months around Escondido had waves EVERY day. Don't think you need to camp as acomodation is dirt cheap. We stayed at a place called 'Buena Onda' at La Punta, which is loads more chilled than Zicatela, and paid about £3 a night to stay right on the beach with a VERY fun left hand point right out front.. 20 min walk up the beach and you get to the main break... If you want to go feral you can rent a hammock on the beach for about 50p a night and the guest house will look after your stuff..... These are prices from about 8 years ago but I can't imagine they have changed too much.

I used to live about 40 miles down the coast from Escondido and there were plenty of boards for sale at Escondido and was pretty cheap from what i remember, this was in 2001 though :)
