RE: Going to Costa Rica in May

Do not go to Nosara Costa Rica if you want to surf.  Tons of people in the line up.  Just there for a mo and counted over 100 people in the line up almost every day.....both morning and night.  If you want to surf go to some other place.  If you wan to see you fellow americans go to Nosara.  The project down there is called Projecto Americano it's really like staying in the USA..  if you want a little real Costa Rican culture do yourself a favor and find something off the beaten path.  Nosara .....Playa guiones is totally americanized now.  Bummerooski.  It has been ruined by money!!!



RE: Going to Costa Rica in May

Hey...I'm heading there on May 14th for a month.  Decided I need to head somewhere for awhile in order to really learn to surf! I've been travelling my whole life but never get to just focus on surfing and I suck so I'm just pickin up and going!  I've been to Mal Pais surf Camp (a couple years ago in Feb) and it's pretty stellar.  Very chilled out town when I was there...not too much partyin tho...ppl mostly there for the surf. So I'm headin back there cause I know it...where I'll go from there, who knows...I'm on a solo mission as well so I just wanna find the cheapest accomodations as possible ($6/night Cabana last time I was there). I'm from Toronto as well.  Anyone wanna drop me a line and meet up on the beach...I'm down.  Stoked to meet fellow travellers!

Hey Quinn,
You decided on where you will be for end of May Surf?  I am a fellow Lake Surfer who has May 20- 27 off (with flexible dates) and I am keen on Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais area.  

Let me know if you are keen on trying to join up and split costs!
Cheers, eh!
