    Costa Rica

    Well i am leaving for Costa Rica in two weeks. Dont know much about the trip since i didnt plan it. I think we are traveling all over but the last three days we are staying in Guanacaste. This is the hotel we are staying at http://www.nacazcol.com/. They give you a list of beaches that are fairly close to the hotel which are:

    Playa Ocotal 10 Km. / 6.5 milles
    Playas del Coco 5 Km. / 3.2 milles
    Playa Hermosa 6 Km. / 3.92 milles
    Playa Panamá 10 Km. / 6.5 milles

    Haven't been to Costa Rica ever and don't know much. I am pretty good surfer so looking to score waves. Anyone know if any of these beaches are good surfing or is there any close by?
    Thanks a lot

    that's from the first result of my google search.
    i've been there 3x & you will find surf just about anywhere at this time of the year, just look around.

    OK Bro you are a little far North for the popular surf spots in Guanacaste..I have been through costa several times and have spent a few trips just in that region and there is no surf that I know of in Octagal,hermosa,panama the popular Hermosa is in puntaranes which is no where near where you will be. Your best bet is to see how far Playa GRande is from you I believe you are north of there. OR see if you can get on a boat and goto Whitches they leave from the area that you will be near. Grande is the furthest beach North that I have surfed in that region even though there are a few more lesser known spots up past Grande...
    Let me know if you need any other help i am doing my 8th trip next month...
