Surfing
The pacific and Caribbean coastlines of Costa Rica offer hundreds of miles of stunning coastline with scores of consistent year-round breaks waitingfor the wave hungry. On Guanacaste’s Nicoya Peninsula, there os a variety of surfer-friendly lodging, tours, and services for surfers of all levels, ages, and dispositions.

According to Tara Thompson, manager at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp in Tamarindo, the clients that they see these days ranges from young families to retired grandmothers to suit-and-tie types looking to escape the grind of the corporate world. “I wanted the same thing”, she says. “To live on a pretty beach and surf good waves and I so found the right spot.”

Tamarindo is Guancaste’s surf hub and first stop for many visitors to the area. There area numerous big name breaks ones all along the peninsula and scores of lesser-know spots, particularly in the south. This is due to the less-than-perfect conditions of some stretches of coastal road, especially during the rainy season. Besides traveling in a 4-wheel-drive, another option is to hire a boat, cruise down the coast, and stop off at the breaks of you choice.

Costa Rica’s pura vida (pure life) philosophy and beach culture are perfectly matched, creating and environment for surfers that is relaxed and accommodating. They are alsoattitudes that are refreshingly escapist, invoking you to loosen up, let go, and thank your lucky starts that there are still places on the planet this beautifulto be catching the perfect wave.
