Costa Rica and surfing go hand and hand. With two long coasts dotted with beach breaks, point break, and hidden spots that only work with very specific swell conditions, Costa Rica is a wave haven. If we all play by the rules (as a visitor, it is crucial you respect the locals and abide by the rules of surfing), there are plenty of waves for everyone! So grab a stick and head out for a surf – the waves are calling.
