Surfing in Costa Rica
It comes to my surprise that Costa Rica is also a surfing destination. Surfing locations in Costa Rica are mostly in the Pacific Coast area. Tamarindo Beach and some areas like in Quepos and Jacó have excellent waves to surf. But these places are often busy with beach-goers as well. Thus, the surfers have to watch their moves. We also visited the beach of Hacienda Baru in Dominical; the beach was empty with excellent waves, I am not sure why no one were on the beach. Surfing season in Costa Rica is from February to July but, in general, it is possible to surf all year round. The waves were not as high as I have seen in Bali (Indonesia), but for sure, that makes it a perfect place to learn how to surfing!
