Costa Rica is considered one of the world’s best surf locations for surfing adventure. Not just because of the famous surf Costa Rica spots like Witch’s Rock, Nosara and Hermosa near Jaco, but because it gained its reputation from the myriad of hidden breaks that can be discovered by the intrepid surf adventurer. And when the Costa Rica national surf team earned a gold medal in the ISA World Surfing Games, it became even clearer that those who surf Costa Rica´s waves gain special experience.

Costa Rica Vacations is owned and operated by people who just happen to enjoy the sport of surfing. Therefore, we are proud to offer a 14-day adventure for 2 people that allows you to explore the best and most fun breaks on the Pacific coast.

Fly into San Jose’s Juan Santamaria Airport, and we’ll transfer you to a hotel where you can stay overnight before the drive to Tamarindo the next. There you will be strategically located near at least six world-class surf breaks: Langosta, Avellanas, Negra, Grande, and of course, the must-surf Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point. Our affiliated surf company, Salty Sols will take care of all your daily tours with an experienced guide named Eric Atkinson.

Next you will travel to Nosara, where Playa Guiones lovely waves await for exploration on your own. Then make a stop Santa Teresa/Malpais, home to Costa Rica’s national surf champion Anthony Fillingim, before your final days in the powerful beachbreak of Hermosa near Jaco.

We’ll get you back to San Jose from there in time to meet your return flight home.
