I have been traveling to Costa Rica for many years and have caught fantastic surf everytime. My fiance and I recently purchased a new 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in Playa Jaco on the central pacific coast. Our unit is located 5 minutes away from the world class break of Playa Hermosa. In addition there are many other breaks close by including point breaks, rivermouths, reefs, and of course beach breaks. It is very easy to get around down there and most Ticos speak some English. If anyone is interested in Costa Rica and has any questions, I can answer them for you. If anyone is interested in the surf vacation of a lifetime, check out the web site for our unit and the video surf report from Hermosa each day.
