The hotel is pretty sick, I would stay there again in a second. Walk 25 yards and you have one of the best breaks in Costa infront of you.I would recommend staying in one of the bungalows with AC.

I own a condo in Tamarindo. I have posted it on here before. It is a gated community with a pool, etc. it is one block to the beach in Tamarindo. It is located in town right next to everything. The beach there is really safe. no problems. you can walk to whole town. The tours you are mentioning are all around town. book thru withches rock surf camp or other places in town. If you are interested. let me know. I can get you cost of weekly at my condo.

hermosa is similiar as you have Jaco close by which has shops, restuarants, etc. I would never stay in Jaco or tamarindo but you can stay in nice places close by so you have those conforrts but you can be in a nicer area in CR. hermosa is a better break than grande but grande gets good also. if you want to do road trips around grande there are more options for other surf breaks 30-1 hour drive away as oppose to hermosa though hermosa has places close by but not as many break options. either way grande is a great suggestion and hermosa is too

Sabra Teresa or Pavones...Perfect time to go!!! Waves are generally great! Let me know if you need guide, boards, rooms or transportation. I have some local friends there who run services.
Also, check out my daily video surf report, it will get you excited. Each morning I post a 45 second clip of the day's surf from Santa Teresa...it's killer.
Enjoy...Live The Lifestyle!

Bumping this thread (new guy here). We (me, wife, 2 yr old, mom in law) were considering a week in Playa Negra in February, but started to hear that the surf in our winter is small and weak on the reef. Can anyone attest to the surf in Negra (specifically) with the NW swells?
Does Mal Pais pick up more swell? I was in CR for a month about 12 years ago. We had a week of chest high and bigger surf in Mal Pias, but never got any swell while between Negra and Witches. This was before there were 20 surf forecasting websites, so I am not sure if it was just that it does not pick up the NW in the NW corner of CR, or if it was just our luck. We scored again as soon as we left and headed south to Hermosa/ Roca Loca.
Any help much appreciated. I'd rather CR over Kauai, but we may end up going to the island if CR will likely be small.

Get the ' Surfers guide to Costa Rica' . Well written and full of great info. I ordered mine off Amazon for 12 bucks.
There are also some great travel blogs about each area.
