As a rugged, rainforested country, it makes sense that travelers come to Costa Rica and expect an epic adventure. While a lot of that adventure can take place on land, the most legendary experiences are more likely to happen in the water.
Costa Rica is a mecca of Central American surf. Heck, it’s even a mecca of worldwide surf. The waves here range from gentle and forgiving to wild and barrelling, and there are plenty of breaks that even the pros can appreciate. Whether you’re a beginner or expert, don’t be surprised if you spend your entire vacay in the water.
