Surfing Vacation Packages

Costa Rica has coasts both on the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and you can make it in less than one day from one side to the other. This is a great advantage since when one ocean is flat you usually can find some action in the other. Surfers from around the world visit the breaks all year round.

Many surfing spots are easily accesible and are near restautants, hotels and surf shops. The waters are relatively warm, no wet suit required.
