I'm traveling to the Playa Hermosa on 5/23 for a week. The southern hemi looks ridiculous for that timeframe right now, some spots calling for double overhead surf. Me and my buddies are good surfers, but that size at 16 seconds is a bit much. Plus it doesn't help that the Northeast, which is where we're from, has not seen head high waves in almost 2 months.
I've heard of places like Manuel Antonio/Playitas (to the South) and Corralillo/Puerto Caldera (to the North) being a little smaller and working well with a S, SW swell. Any ideas on good spots that may be a bit tamer than the unruly beach breaks of Jaco y Playa Hermosa? Also curious about Quepos, wasn't working last time I saw the place and I know it works best on a W, NW swell, but with the long period figured pretty much every place would be breaking.
Thanks for your input all, pura vida.
