Basically going down to Jaco the first week in March. I've been a few times but at different times of the year. What can we expect as far as surf size in Jaco and Hermosa in early March? What about conditions? What tide is best for these breaks?
I've been there when it's low tide and it's flat but at high it's decent. Is this always the case?
If it's not happening in Hermosa, you got some prime breaks nearby. Esterios Este y Oeste, Guacalillio, Dominical, Playa El Rey, and, the best of all, Boca Barranca. the last time I was there, I caught boca with 1 guy out, head high and off shore. Longass left. took for ever to walk back.
surf at higher tide. should be waist to chest-ish every day. early mornings should be offshore, late morning wind will come onshore. not to say onshore in the sense that it will ruin it, certainly surfable, but clean and green in the early morning hours. i would surf in hermosa over jaco if you have the option, would also stay in hermosa as opposed to jaco.
