Costa Rica is a world-renowned surfing mecca

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 in Costa Rica Surf Trips


Surfing is one of the most popular outdoor hobbies in the world today. Millions of people enjoy the thrill of the ocean and the exhilaration of riding the wave all the way to the beach. As this sport continues to grow across the world, certain locations are becoming increasingly popular. One of the most popular locations in the world for surfing today is Costa Rica. Costa Rica has become a surfing mecca for a wide variety of reasons including our high quality beaches, the investment in the surf community, and the great number of world-class breaks that show up along the shoreline.

When people want to go surfing, many will develop an image in one’s head of riding the perfect wave onto a beautiful beach, and they will want the beach they surf at to live up to that image as much as possible. Fortunately, our pristine location in Playa Negra, Costa Rica has plenty of beaches that match that description, some well known and others that we like to think of as “secret” locations. Some of the best places to surf can be found on the Nicoya Peninsula, from Witches Rock near the Nicaragua border to Marbella to Santa Teresa.   No matter where you are, you will surely feel inspired and treasure your time in the water.

Not only does Costa Rica have exceptional surfing locations, but the communities along these beaches have invested heavily in the surfing community. Due to our great weather, location and year round good surf, our northwest coast holds surfing tournaments on a regular basis.  All of this local investment in surfing has lead to an amazing community..

Costa Rica also has ideal weather for surfing. The northwest coast of Costa Rica in particular is known for not only having some of the best breaks possible for surfing but also “summer year round”. Because of these breaks you can rest easy knowing that there will always be high quality waves for you to ride.  We will be happy to help you find those breaks during your stay with us at our Wavehouse!

With beautiful beaches, a great surfing community, and some of the best breaks, it is no wonder that Costa Rica is a world-renowned surfing mecca. If you love surfing or want to learn, contact us to learn more. You will be glad you made the trip.
