Costa Rica is a surfers heaven with both Pacific and Caribbean coasts, there are more breaks than you can holiday. I’ve travelled five times, each for month stints and still haven’t mastered them all.
Tamarindo was made famous by the movie Endless Summer 2, it’s warm waters and cheap, cold beers.
Forget your wetsuit, beaches are a perfect 28c year round, with wet season bringing in the swell and the dry season gifting months of perfect offshore winds.
Chose from a few different breaks, Main Beach Break is perfect for learning how to surf, the River Mouth at prime swell absolutely pumps, or for heavier waves brave the crocs with a paddle across the Estuary and a short walk to Playa Grande.
