Travel and Surf in Costa Rica
Costa Rica boasts the most diverse selection of flora and fauna in the hemisphere. Thirteen different ecological systems dot the land, where nature lovers find spectacular beaches, mountain cloud forest, volcanic swamps and tropical rainforests hosting many different climates. Situated between North and South America, Costa Rica acts as a land bridge where different plants and animals merge to create unique ecosystems that evolve nowhere else in the world!
One of the largest sea turtle nesting sites in the world, Costa Rica offers guided walks along the beach at night to witness the actual laying of the eggs. This is an absolutely fascinating experience! We suggest taking the time on your vacation to witness the wonder of the rainforests, raging rivers and mountainous terrain.
Beaches and Surf in Costa Rica
Beaches are plentiful in Costa Rica and are easy to reach. Whether lying in the sun, exploring the ecology near the water or surfing, you’ll find the sandy beaches warm and inviting year round.

Waves are epic year round in Costa Rica. From March through late November, the Pacific coast offers long point breaks, river mouths and beach breaks. Serious surfers hit the Atlantic Coast from December through March where deep water waves break over the shallow reef creating the perfect imitation of Hawaiian surf.
Great surf spots can be found in the northwest corner of Costa Rica in the Guanacaste Region. Tamarindo and Playa Nosara have excellent breaks, as well as swimming and snorkeling spots. Playa Naranjo, known for “Witches Rock” offers perfect tube rides.
Known for long waves at both high and low tide the nearest surf break to San Jose is Boca Barranca near Puntarenas. About a half hour south is Playa Jaco, which offers ding repair and night life. South of Jaco to Playa Dominical are many excellent surf spots. Playa Pavones, south of Golfito, has the second longest left in the world; a true world class wave.
