Where to surf in Costa Rica
There are so many great spots to surf in Costa Rica for a family vacation that it can be hard to choose. One of the areas that we highly recommend is on the central Pacific coast. Playa Jaco and the surrounding area have some of the most consistent surf in the Costa Rica. Jaco generally has a forgiving wave that is perfect for beginners. It is fun for intermediate and advanced surfers also. If you want something a bit more challenging, Playa Hermosa is just 10 minutes down the road, and is a heavy beach break for the big boys! Quality surf instruction will get you off on the right foot and insure you get up surfing from Day 1. Let experts arrange everything so you can sit back and enjoy the beauty of your Costa Rica vacation.
