I am planning on going on vacation from Feb. 8 - 13. Planning on either Costa Rica or Puerto Rico. For CR, my wife and I am looking at Tamarindo area but nothing is nailed down. For PR, I was looking Rincon. I am an experienced surfer but my wife has never surfed but wants to try surfing.

Any suggestions for either or? PR is a little bit cheaper from the looks of Expedia.com. Also, I do plan to rent a board rather than take one with me. Too expensive on Delta.

Also, what is surf like near San Juan? We'll rent a 4x4 for wherever we go so we will be mobile.

We are up for either but I am leaning towards CR. She is game for either. I am blessed with a pretty cool wife.
