I was in Jaco for 2 week last september.  Man, there were 8ft (face) drops and it was a very powerfl, fat wave.  I'm intermediate and suspect it's not good for beginners unless you're happy to ride foamies?  One other thing, getting through the break was so tricky.  My boardshorts were constantly being pulled off by the waves (!) and I was tired for paddling so much.  Try somewhere else smaller and not so strong?

i'm planning a solo trip down to Costa Rica in july.  wondering places that were good for beginners and whether or not it would be best to book a deal with a "surf school" or just go to any surfers camp and get lessons from the people who offer there.

if you want true beginner in CR, go to Samara.  Smaller waves, super safe rip-free beach, a couple of good surf schools.
If in Jaco, go to the far south end, by Carton Surfboards.  Don't even bother with Hermosa.
