Going to CR in July, some info GREATLY help me out!

« on: March 25 2008 19:03:00 »

Hola everyone,
i've been reading all these posts so far, and i've gathered a little bit of information, but not anything solid.
i am canadian from BC (speak partial spanish) and i plan on going to CR with a good buddy in July and staying for pretty much a month, maybe 5 weeks.

this is what we are looking for:

-chill locals that don't hate on tourists
-decent surf
-decent night life
-cheap stay/rent
-cheap food and beer

we also plan to tour around a little, probably weekend trips and such. we will probably buy a cheap 4x4 as well to get around.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY INFO!!!!!
Feel free to email me.
I really appreciate any help. Muchas gracias!!

Hey!

I too am headed to Costa Rica for the month of August for a solo beginners trip! I have been researching different areas and have narrowed it down to Tamarindo and Mal Pais/Santa Teresa.

From what I've heard from the folks here in San Francisco, Tamarindo is great fun, although filled with North Americans. I think I am going to bounce between the two areas. Have you found a cheap place to stay? I've contacted a couple of hostels who unfortunately were booked - I better get on this soon!

Let me know how things work out for ya. Any info you pass along will be greatly appreciated!

Leanne :-)

I too am going to CR in July. I am leaving the 15th and meeting up with a dude who is leading a tour from Jaco north to visit a bunch of breaks. Do you guys know any essential items to pack that I might be missing? One thing I think will be good for us beginners is a rash-guard surf shirt (one with UVB/A protection.) I got one at sportinglife for $25.

Cheers

Tamarindo is a great place to buy gear and supplies. Its a good town to party but there are some great surf spots south of Tamarindo such as Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra, and Playa Guiones (outside Nosara). Also Samara can be a great place to learn. I bought a surfing guidebook from blue planet surf maps which served me well on my trip. Jaco was a bit of a hole (lots of druggies) but Playa Esterillos about 10 miles south was really cool.

Looking for surf spots in Costa Rica ?
