Its geography makes it a classic trip choice, having two coastlines — the Caribbean and the Pacific. The Pacific coast is divided into three regions: north, center and south.
PACIFIC NORTH: GUANACASTE AND THE NICOYA PENINSULA
Although there are consistent breaks the year round, the major swell season to surf here is February, and April to August.
Between the highlights points to practice this we remark the following ones: Witch´s Rock, Ollie´s Point, Playa Grande, Playa Avellana, Playa Negra, Nosara and Santa Teresa. Across locations you will find surf camps, hotels, restaurants and great atmosphere. If you are new to surfing and are looking for good breaks for beginners, go to Tamarindo or Nosara.
Sun, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, perfect waves, plenty of space and less people. Our favorite place is Playa Avellana, probably the best place to surf on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. We love it because it is suitable for beginners and also there are great centers and Instructors who adapt to the level of anyone.
PACIFICO CENTRAL Y PACÍFICO SUCENTRAL PACIFIC AND SOUTH PACIFIC
In the central Pacific the best breakers are in Playa Hermosa and Dominical, and if we go further south we will come up with the swells that come from the south becoming into this area the second longest left wave in the world, Specifically in Pavones is where you can enjoy this break. But in Cabo Matapalo at the southern extreme of the Osa Peninsula you can enjoy a day of surfing.
Most of the best months are April to October, however there are waves all year round.
The South Caribean is a famous area for producing two world class waves. Isla Uvita, is an island with a reef bottom located in front of Puerto Limon and can only be accessed by boat. Then we have Salsa Brava, which is a spot of right and left, located in Puerto Viejo. The best surfing months are by the end of January to March; July, August and also November and December. Avoid April, May, September and October.
