The longest right-to-left wave in the world is on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica!
The surfing up and down the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is exceptional as well.
And, driving from one coast to the other only takes six hours!
If you are going to take a Costa Rica surfing vacation, you may as well see it all!
Our Costa Rica surfing vacation packages are custom.
The type of break you want, your skill level, and how long you want to stay in each place determines the Costa Rica surfing vacation we design for you.
To decide what surfing vacation is best for you, we need to know a little more about your surfing.
But, below is an example of what your C Costa Rica Vacations surfing vacation might look like!
The following is a Costa Rica surf vacation itinerary for a group who always wants to be around a great break every day they are in C.R., but a group that also wants to spend a few hours every day checking out Costa Rica’s other offerings.
Immediately heading to the Caribbean, you’ll be surfing north of Limon by noon!
You can choose between Isla Uvita, Roco Alta, or Portete.
Staying at a beautiful villa for the night, you’ll be treated to the sights and sounds of one of Costa Rica’s most popular inland attractions, the jungle!
Day two begins with a 4 to 6 hours surf session!
In the afternoon C Costa Rica Vacations will shuttle you to Parishmina where you will catch a ferry to Tortuguero.
There you can watch sea turtles — in the summer and fall months, — hike through the national park, or take a boat tour through the canals of Tortuguero.
Most importantly, there is surfing up and down the coast near Tortuguero!
After an overnight stay in Tortuguero followed by breakfast and a ferry ride back to Parismina, C Costa Rica will shuttle you south past Limon where you will spend the day at surfing near Playa Bonita.
In the evening, a short drive will take you to Cahuita where you’ll check into your hotel and have dinner.
A layover day, you’ll be spending the night in Cahuita again, so you can surf the entire day!
One of the best breaks is that of Playa Negra! It’s perfect for intermediates!
You can also just hang on the beach or fill your time with a variety of non-surfing activities!
One of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, Cahuita is the perfect place to decompress on a board.
The next stop is Puerta Viejo, home of Salsa Brava!
After checking into your hotel, you can head to the beach to surf in front of town! The locals and tourists are a great audience and you’re the entertainment.
If Salsa Brava is a little too much for you, try the surfing at El Barco.
If you want completely stress free surfing near Puerto Viejo, try Punta Uva!
When you decide to take a break, you can select from any of the dozens of things to do in Puerta Viejo with respect to activities!
Your last stop on the Caribbean, Manzanillo!
A secluded beach at the end of the road, Manzanillo is also within walking distance of Punta Uva and several other killer breaks.
Quiet and tranquil, Manzanillo is “pura” Caribbean!
In addition to having great surfing, Manzanillo is at the end of the road. As such, it is isolated, peaceful, beautiful, and quiet.
Manzanillo is what Caribbean Costa Rica was 30 years ago!
Depending on what time your flight leaves, there may be time for one last stop to surf before heading back to the airport!
