Located in the Gandoca-Manzanillo Reserve, 20 km south of Puerto Viejo. The northern end of this beach sports a fast break and the southern end has virtually no surf because it is heavily protected by a large coral reef.
There is not much surfing done at this beach but it’s close to Puerto Viejo and is a great place to hang out on the beach, sea kayak, snorkel and hike. The road from Puerto Viejo is unpaved but a 4WD is not required. There is a little restaurant that serves up a great Caribbean Style Lobster dinner for about $5, and cold beers are cheap too.

An area with plenty of surf, but best known for the largest and most powerful wave in Costa Rica, “Salsa Brava”. This thick, Hawaiian-style wave builds in deep water and breaks on a shallow reef.
The right will usually be steep and tubular and its left will also provide a short but sweet ride. Puerto Viejo is about a 4 hour drive from San Jose and it’s a mellow Caribbean village with lots of reggae music, great seafood and cold Rum drinks.

It has an excellent beach break but is not well known and therefore not heavily surfed. Nevertheless, there are decent waves all year long. Cahuita is just up the main road from Puerto Viejo, about 2 km north of the Cahuita Park entrance you will go east for about 10 minutes and find this well kept secret beach and break.

It is a stretch of beach breaks from Limon to Cahuita that offer left and rights that tend to close out when the swell gets too big.

It is an island off the coast of Limon. There is a perfect but dangerous left that breaks onto a reef. The island is about a 20 minute boat ride from Limon with passage available only at certain times of the year.

It is a point/reef break known for its very thick, powerful and dangerous left. Access is a short and easy drive up the coast from Limon.

An endless stretch of beach breaks located along the coast of the Tortuguero National Park, where some of Costa Rica’s largest rivers meet the Caribbean Sea.
Extreme conditions and sharks should deter even the most hard core surfer. The Northern Caribbean is a great place to catch Tarpon and watch turtles hatch…it’s not a place I would recommend for surfing..
