SURFING IN GUANACASTE, PUNTARENAS AND LIMÓN PROVINCES
Costa Rica is by far the most popular Central American surfing holiday destination, attracting an international crowd to frolic in the warm waves that wash up on both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. Factors like political stability, tourist infrastructure, clean water, natural beauty, friendly people and good security compared to its neighbours has driven a tourism and property investment boom that shows no sign of slowing. CR’s surf runs the full gamut of shapes, if not size, and each province boasts at least one draw card wave, often in the world-class category. Volcanic black sand, squeaky white sand and craggy reef can all be found and while the cheapness and emptiness factors have been eroded, Costa Rica is still a place where all surfers from newbies to grizzled shredders can still find that feeling of pure stoke in a sublime exotic environment.
