What you'll do
Are you on a surf trip to Costa Rica and want to surf the best spots on the best days? Let's explore the coast and experience Costa Rica like a local! This experience is for intermediate to advanced surfers. Costa Rica is blessed with hundreds of waves with varying types - sand, reef, point break and is commonly named in the top 5 places in the world for surfing! These are great for all styles from shortboard to longboard and in between. We'll pick you up in private transportation at your accommodations in Samara, assess the day's conditions, and head off to the best spot to surf on that day! You'll experience my country like a local pro. You'll see places and sights you've never been and we'll have a blast surfing for a couple of hours. When we're surfed out, we'll grab some local food (not included in price, don't forget your wallet!) and then we'll head back to town so I can send you off with some good tips for the rest of your stay. A perfect way to spend your time in this beautiful country and to get a local experience!
