Beginner Surf Lessons in Costa Rica

« on: September 20 2005 09:09:00 »

My friend and I are thinking of going to CR during christmas/new years week and learning how to surf.  Any thoughts on where the best place to do this at a reasonable cost is?  Anything important we should know or good places for us to look?
All help is appreciated!

Flights to San Jose are cheaper than to Liberia.  If you are going during winter break you should go to Jaco or 10 miles south (Playa Hermosa).  YOu will find that you will have surf, nightlife, and only 1.5 hours from the airport by cab.

I am going back to Playa Hermosa December 28th to mid Jan.  I went last winter and had an insane time.   Feel free to drop me an email if you need any help, advice..
