Why you should pick Costa Rica for your next surf holiday
Blessed with amazing waves and great beaches, Costa Rica is an ideal travel destination for professional and amateur surfers alike. With warm and sunny tropical weather with beautiful exotic scenery and diverse cultures, what’s not to like about Costa Rica for any holiday goer? Unlike the beaches of Sydney or Southern California, Costa Rican beaches have the added advantage of not being nearly as crowded.
You can enjoy your waves all to yourself and practice your surfing with a peace of mind. Costa Rica also has some of the best waves in the world, particularly during the rainy season when you can ride a wave for several minutes straight.
And if you want to take a break from surfing, there’s so much to do in the country. You could explore the magnificent tropical rainforests, observe the rarest wildlife, go hiking to see some volcanos and a lot more. You won’t get these in Sydney or California!
What are some of the best places to surf in Costa Rica?
Costa Rica has a variety of surfing spots to choose from, especially in the Northern, Southern and Central parts of Costa Rica. Some of the top Costa Rica surf beaches include Playa Tamarindo, Witch’s Rock (Playa Naranjo) and Ollies Point, to name a few. Both Ollie’s Point and Witch’s Rock are both protected territories of the Santa Rosa national park.
Witch’s Rock, also known as Roca Bruja is a renowned surf spot in Guanacaste and part of Santa Rosa national park. It is better suited for professional surfers than beginners, however. It is also not the most accessible and can only be reached safely by boat.
On the other hand, Playa Tamarindo is a great surfing spot for surfers of all levels, as it boasts several breaks, including a river mouth break. You can find smaller waves at the bay with a sandy bottom, which are ideal for learning how to surf. You’ll also find numerous surf schools and camps.
What’s the best time to go surfing in Costa Rica?
Our crew will always ensure that the timing is ideal for departure so that the tide and swell are perfect for you to ride the waves. The great thing about Costa Rica is that you can go surfing pretty much all year-round, even during the wet season.
There are only two main seasons in Costa Rica- wet and dry season. The rainy season runs from May to November and produces some of the best swells.
