ESL teacher lookin for city near good surfer beach

« on: June 29 2009 16:06:00 »

Hi,
I am wanting to move to Costa Rica to be able to surf every day. Does anyone recommend some good surfer beaches near big cities. I need to find a job teaching English as a second language. And those jobs tend to be near medium-to-large cities. Also do you recommend the Atlantic or Pacific side, and is the Pacific Ocean cold in Costa Rica?
Thanks so much!
Christy Rich

yeah, I worked/taught in a small town named Platanillo, which is 15 km from the ocean, a great break area and not well known surf town Dominical.  The city of San Isidro de General was about 20 km as the crow flies to Plantanillo, but would take 45 mins. on a fun, but scary, bus ride. (watch out for mud slides, seriously don't take the bus if it's raining or after 3:00 pm in the rainy season).  San Isidro is perfect size for what you described, and Dominical has great accommodations and such.

...the computer cut me off, i have much more to say...
And unlike other blown out places I've surfed, i.e. Tamarindo and the area, Dominical doesn't have sewage leaking on to the beach and main source of revenue...  There's a great eco-lodge south of Dominical too, Las Cusingas, which has a secluded beach with close to perfect conditions, private land and eco protected, beautiful.  San Isidro is also for sure an area to find an ESL job.  That is your best bet, other than the Atlantic side, which has Limon and some good surf to the south like Cahuita.  I have so much more I could say, just email me tfadde1@students.towson.edu
