The peak surf season for best swells and conditions here is from March to September. (October is normally extremely rainy and onshore and November through February is mostly small and too windy.) Normal air and water temperatures are around 80 degrees Fahrenheit.


Our trips are designed for maximum surf and relaxation time, with minimum hassle and effort.

ROUND TRIP AIRPORT TRANSFERS: Our driver will be waiting for you at the airport (Liberia, Guanacaste, LIR) with your name on a sign, then it is approximately an hour and a half drive through the countryside to the beach.

Nice long walls out the back and mellow inside reforms for the kids!


Beachfront Restaurant:
We love this restaurant because one can watch the waves peel down the reef as you enjoy some excellent cuisine. Nothing better than straight into some cold drinks and delicious meals after the surf or chilling on the beach. The kitchen staff prepares all the meals with fresh local products, offering a wide variety of food.

The Town

We first came here in 1989 and moved here full time shortly thereafter. What surprises us most in 2021 is the lack of change. The local community here in Los Pargos is like going back in a time machine. You get to experience life as it was before any real outside development or influence. The tropical dry forest lands surrounding the house are still virgin & undisturbed. It is customary to see real cowboys, wild horses, cattle traffic jams, wild bull fights, wild monkeys, thousand of species of birds & more. These natural, wild and cultural experiences will make your stay with us unique and will remain with you long after you’ve returned home.

The Beach and Surf


Straight out front is Playa Negra, and North and South lie a variety of fun spots, some walking and others driving distance. Ocean and weather conditions are ever changing, and each surf spot each works on it’s own formula of tide, swell angle and interval, and wind.

Experience this small town vibe and laid back surf community that hosts a tropical blue, right hand reef break and sand bottom beach break right beside each other. This is one of Costa Rica’s most consistent, wave rich zones, with breaks for all tides and swell angles.
