So how were the waves over the weekend at La Manzanilla? What was the high water mark during the high tides? Any reports of hazardous rip currents? Any cool photos?
The big swell ("Mar de Fondo") was caused by a big storm way down in the southern hemisphere, and isn't related to any weather action in our vicinity. It seems to have peaked and should start declining, according to these sites:

The good old Trop Wx Discussion shouts it out (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATWDEP+shtml/):
