Surfing, Costa Rica: 14 reviews and 11 photos

  SECRET SPOT: hint, turtles

My first trip to Costa Rica was supposed to be for two weeks. It turned into 6 weeks and that wasn't enough. The 2 days that I didn't surf warm fun waves were the travel days that we didn't make it to our destination in time. That's the definition of consistent. On my last trip there was one day when the waves were only waist high and I went fishing instead.

Equipment: Surf Board:

Most of the waves I surfed were performance waves. There were a couple days that I could have used a gunny board but most of the time my 6'6" was fine. The Carribean side is another story.

Rash Guard:

A long sleave rash guard may save you from a bad sun burn or even worse. I didn't see as much as a cloud on my first trip except in the mountains on the way from the airport to the coast.

Address: The West Coast of Costa Rica
Directions: I'll try to highlight specific surf spots soon!

My favorite spot so far is Playa Negra but I'm going to witches rock this year !
