    I've only been to Rincon PR, but it's perfect if you go to the right places. I highly recommend staying with Bobby at Mar Azul Surfshop, he's got a private villa that is safe and secure and pefect for a couple. http://www.puertoricosurfinginfo.com/

    If you choose to stay here, it's walking distance to Sandy Beach (although we drove), which is where we spent most of our time (8 days), it's mostly a sand bottom, but if you want to surf a point or reef, you can find one right next door. My wife and I love it there and will definitely be back soon.

    It's ideal for a beginner but it's not limited to, It was anywhere from 1-2ft on small days up to 8-10ft on the larger days. My wife got to do some paddle boarding and some swimming, while I paddled out alone on the larger days and she kept a close eye on our stuff and the car.

    After surfing there is a great beach bar called Tamboo you'll love. Right in front is a nice point left off the rocks you'll dig, it was barreling when I was there, such a fun wave!

    So, it looks like CR is winning out. Looking at car rentals. I have read that it is best to rent in Liberia at the airport. I did some searching and there is a lot of insurance cost, mandatory and otherwise that is added on to the "Base Cost". Any comments on that?

    Dont leave anything in the car that you want to be there when you get back... I love both places, but the petty theft in CR is off the charts.

    All you need is the basic insurance...This car rental is in Jaco... http://www.zumarentacar.com/
    I know its not where you heading but I've delt with them for 8 years and they INCLUDE the cost of insurance in their car rental prices so you can compare the prices with the rental companies at Libera vs Zuma. I know Warren at Zuma personally and they have some of the cheapest rental prices in Costa Rica. Check out ADOBE car rental...they are a costa rican company based at Liberia and San Jose airports...other companies include common names such as Thrify, Hertz, and Avis. Do some comparison and you can save a ton! Good luck!

    Definitely CR but stay away from Jaco. It is very seedy there and not a place to take the wife. Tamarindo is a good bet.

  10. PR no brainer. Rincon is beautiful. It is truly a paradise. gas is dirt cheap, food is amazing. More spot variety in rincon than on the north shore.
