130 Surf Spot

Subcategories

  • North Pacific

    Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula from the Surf Spot N° 1 Ollie’s Point up to N° 52) Bahia Playa Montezuma: you can catch the best waves from September until March. Even though there are waves all year round these are the best months for the region since winds blow in from the east during this time of year. These winds are known as off shore winds. It’s also the best time to get access to the area since the rainy season is from the months of March through to September and most of the surf spots are only accessible with the use of a 4 x 4 vehicle. The Pacific North coast is blessed with off shore winds and is notorious for easily trapping Northwest swells. When these two elements come together they form a most magical coast line.

  • Central Pacific

    From Puntarenas Surf Spot N° 53 Boca Barranca up to N° 88 Chaman Beach Punta Uvita: This zone is known for being the most consistent of all, because of its geographical position; it catches the swells from the south, southwest, north and northwest. Although, in the months of September through to March the swells tend to be smaller, the conditions are much better. During rainy season in the months of March through to September the zone captures swells from all directions. Even though the pacific coast is not blessed with off shore winds it is almost guaranteed to have great conditions early in the mornings and late afternoons.

  • South Pacific

    From Surf Spot N° 89 Bahía Drake up to N° 97 Punta Burica: This zone is characterized by catching the South swells. Even though from Quepos through to Drakes Bay catches the Northwest and North swells very well, Punta Burica and Pavones works best with the Southern swells. This area is notorious for being very rainy but also famous for having the second longest left in the world.

  • Caribbean Coast

    The Caribbean coast is divided into two regions the North Caribbean and the South Caribbean.

     

    South Caribbean: from Surf Spot N° 98 Fertica up to N° 129 Gandoca Beach Manzanillo and to North Caribe N° 130 Tortuguero Limon: This area is well known for having two world-class waves. Isla Uvita, which is an island with a reef bottom located in front of Puerto Limon, can be accessed only by boat. Then we have Salsa Brava, which is a right and left point break, located in Puerto Viejo, 60km North from Puerto Limon. The best months are December and January. Although these months are very rainy the waves tend not to be so great after the rain. Because of the majority of waves being reef bottom powerful, this place is not recommended for beginners.

     

    North Caribbean: from Barra Del Colorado to the Pacuare river mouth: This zone has not been explored very much by surfers but many believe there is a high probability of waves with great potential between Barra Del Colorado and Tortuguero. Access is extremely difficult since the area is abundant in vegetation and wildlife like crocodiles, sharks and turtles among others.
