Surfing and windsurfing

No matter if you are a beginner or a pro surfer, Costa Rica delivers good surf! Learn how to surf or polish your technique at most of our beautiful beaches on the Pacific coastline. From river mouths to reefs, there are waves all year round and the wind is usually off shore every morning and evening, meaning glassy waves to be had.

For windsurfing, the best area for experienced surfers is Port Soley, near the border to Nicaragua. However, for less experienced surfers, the Gulf of Papagayo is just perfect since if features calm waters and less intense wind. The best windsurfing conditions are usually during our summer months, from December to March.
