I am looking to plan a trip to either Puerto Rico or Costa Rica in the next few months. I was looking for some advice, recommendations, or experiences to help with my decision. If anyone has favorite place to go to surf, places to stay or things to watch out for, this would be my first surf trip (outside the US) and any help would be much appreciated. I am looking for something in the beginner to intermediate range and would be taking my wife. I would like to get her in the water and be able to have her give surfing a try.

If there is somewhere else that you would recommend, I'm open to suggestions
