Matapalo accommadation

« on: April 14 2011 14:04:00 »

I am looking to take my wife and 3 kids ( 13,11,10 all surf ) to Costa Rica for three months next year and have been researching Matapalo in the south but I'm having problems finding Accommadation. We are a well traveled family and don't want the Ritz. We just need a water tight roof, cooking ability and at least 2 bedrooms. Something close to the point would be good but it doesn't have to be on the beach. We want to experience the local culture so even a local house would be fine. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Can anyone that has been to Matapalo give me an indication of how consistant the breaks are.

You won't be very happy at matapalo.  the surf is NOT very consistent, and when there ARE some waves, it gets super crowded really fast.   Try Dominical or Hermosa.
