Costa Rica is a legendary surfing location and home to some world-class surfing and competitions. Having two coastlines – Caribbean and Pacific – means that Costa Rica has endless beaches and opportunities to surf. Whether you are a professional and bring your board with you wherever you go, or it’s your first time getting in the waves, Costa Rica has the right spot for you.
There are many top-notch surf resorts as well as great teachers for all your surf needs. If you don’t have a board of your own, no need to worry, you can rent boards at almost every beach and also at your resort. Many great luxury hotels and resorts are located in the Northern Guanacaste Area, which coincidentally is also a great place to catch some waves. If you fancy getting into the waves and learning to surf, we can offer you some great tours and our guides guarantee that you will be able to stand up after your first lesson, a thrilling feeling and a memory you definitely won’t forget anytime soon.
The major swell season is April to October, but you’ll be able to find waves throughout the entire year and especially from December to April you can find very clean surf – especially in the early mornings! And wouldn’t a nice surf session be a fantastic start to your day?
Whether you are interested in surfing the entire time you are in Costa Rica or would just like to go for the occasional surf during your trip while exploring the country, we can accommodate your wishes in your personal itinerary. We work with many great surf camps, guides and teachers, so you can be sure to have the best surf experience possible.
