Surfing in Jaco

« on: August 27 2012 16:08:00 »

I will be visiting Jaco at the end of next month for a bud's bachelor's party. I'm hoping to get some surfing in. How's the surf in Jaco? I hear it's not that great and the rips are pretty strong. My problem is that the majority of the guys I'm going with are not surfers, so I'm more than likely be on my own and taking a surf tour may take me out of the group activities.

The rip tides are not too bad for surfers. There are bigger and faster waves in Hermosa.

Jaco is a dump. Worst surf trip I ever took. In fact I think all of Costa Rica is over rated!
( except for Pavones)

Looking for surf spots in Costa Rica ?
