Surfing on the Central Pacific
Experience the Waves of the Central Pacific Region of Costa Rica.
Number of nights: 7
The Pacific coast of Costa Rica offers some stunning beaches, and you will get to experience them in this custom vacation package.The surf is varied here and tends to be a little stronger than the waves in Guanacaste. It is also home to the world famous Hermosa Beach (not to be confused with the one in Guanacaste), where heavy barrels break onto the black sand beach.
Begin your adventure in Jacó where you will stay in your own beachfront condo. The area’s surfing fame was cemented when Jacó was chosen as the site of the 2016 World Surfing Games. Jacó Bay offers a more sheltered wave than many of the surrounding beaches. The south end is very good for learning, but can get a little crowded, while towards the north it is easy to find an empty peak. The town itself is lively to say the least, and all manner of fun can be found.
From Jacó you will head south to Manuel Antonio where you will stay in a homey resort minutes from the national park and known for its Costa Rican hospitality. Hit the waves daily or take part in other tours. Here you will find the waves to be a little more closed out, but head to the north end of Manuel Antonio, past the big rocks, and you will find the quality improves.
