the most surfer place that I've been in my life, is truely a temple of surf. It is a very small town, I believe that this in Guanacaste, has a position of Internet, a public telephone, a supermarket, and a hotel, with 10 rooms. All the others are forest, ah, and a soda . They call thus to the position of meals, like a bar to eat and a bar to take something in the nights. This place this infested by gringos, stops generally in carps located in the beach. They have all types of accessories, or to see for where the wind blows in the morning, like little bells with direction towards the four cardinal points.

Their waters also are crystalline and warm, there are dangers as much outside as within the water. Outside the water this plenty of scorpions, I believe that they are not poisonous, only at night appear, when people sleeping, and within the water there are many fish that clear your legs, arriving at provocarte edges. Also there are marine serpents, these are poisonous and dangerous, since to bite, (obvious it does not happen every day), they hold the part in where placed its teeth and they don't loose by several seconds inyecting to it a poison that knows to single God the power degree that it has. As in the place there is no a hospital, it is necessary to go to a place called Puntarenas, if my memory serves me right, to extract it. is very difficult to enter these beaches , since there is much foam by the waves, breaks 3 blocks inside, a normal wave in this place is of 2 meters, but when swell enters, take hold!!!!!!!!, of 3 mts. and raising, I believe that in my life I saw so great waves and so good quality of surf. , with good surfing

At the Surf Camp of Mal Pais, this place were very special, swimming pool, bar, and the cabins were of cane, with spaces of half meter between cane and cane, and a large window, obvious without windows with good views. For the nights to cover itself well since they entered from monkeys, toads, serpents and our friends the scorpions. In order to be able to survive that the best option it was to arrive with good mambo and for falling asleep as soon as possible. It is also arrived taking a bus from Puntarenas.
