For many in search of the perfect wave, the search has ended in Costa Rica. Long stretches of beaches provide thousands of beach breaks. Numerous rivers offer quality sandbar rivermouth breaks, particularly on the Pacific coast. And coral reefs on the Caribbean coast, says Costa Rican surf expert Peter Brennan, "take the speed limit to the max." And there are plenty of surf camps.
Surfing Jaco Beach
Jaco was once an archetypal sleepy beach town. But it wasn’t long before Jaco Beach’s excellent waves began to draw foreign surfers in exponential numbers, especially because of the Costa Rica beach’s proximity to the San Jose (less than two hours).
Along with the surfers came the need for nightlife. Now, Jaco is Costa Rica’s wildest party beach, and a top destination for wave-worshippers and land-lubbers alike.
Surfing Hermosa Beach
Powerfull and consistent beachbreak that sticks out into the Pacific, assuring constant swell. You will rarely be surfing under head high here.
It can be perfect sometimes, delivering a nice barrel, but at other times you might see the barelling waves all over the place, but have trouble finding that perfect wave for yourself!
Hermosa is actually a several mile long stretch of beach, and you can go surfing anywhere along
Surfing WITCHES ROCH Beach
Surfing in Costa Rica is a must destination for surfers around the world and is every surfers dream.
Surf the two favorite breaks:
Witch's Rock, it is 40 minutes from Playa Del Coco and Ollie's Point is 20 minutes North of Witches Rock. Both spots are located in Guanacaste's Santa Rosa National Park; so a park entrance fee is required. Boogie boarders are welcome to ride the waves as well.
It has a left and right break with a sandy bottom.
This spot is best surfed at mid/high tide and has off-shore winds from Dec through Mar. Witches Rock is not a beginners break and we recommend experienced surfers.
