If you are looking for the standard 3-5 ft waves that many Central America areas will have on any given summer day, then this is not the time to head on down. The Swellinfo wave model is predicting peak swells in Costa Rica around 6-7ft @ 17 seconds, which is easily Double Overhead and bigger for the spots that can handle it.
This swell will be even bigger in South American and be felt strongly up towards Puerto Escondido, Mexico. The swell peaks for Costa Rica late Friday into Saturday and gradually fade down through the middle of next.
