Anyone recomend any good hostles? Going for six weeks in may/june so im looking for something kind of cheap cheap but also nice and fairly close to the beach. First time to Costa Rica I would like to stay near Playa Hermosa. Also looking for a guide and car rentals. Any info would be great. Thanks!
I stayed at Cabinas las Arenas in hermosa a few years ago. There's a restaurant there called Dos Gringos. Two guys named Todd and Scott run the place. Good food and good people. Las Arenas is pretty cheap too.
cabinas rancho grande in playa hermosa. its inexpensive and close to the beach. Dos gringos is a great place to eat. PM me for some info on a guide. I have a friend that does the surf guide thing and airport pickups in playa hermosa.
I suggest checking out Nosara, Costa Rica. It's amazing and super mellow - well anywhere you go in Costa Rica is pretty much going to be amazing and mellow. But, if you're new to the world of surfing you can get a great Costa Rica package from Corky Carroll's Surf School http://www.surfschool.net It's an all inclusive deal, food + beer + surfing, what more could you ask for? Haha. Just a suggestion if you're trying to get better at surfing while have a great time.
It's FINALLY here...The daily video surf report Live from Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Each morning we post a 45 second video from the beach and a detailed report of the conditions. Take a minute each morning and escape to a better place. http://www.BarefootInPublic.com/surf-report
