Costa Rica is one of the most popular destinations in Central America for good reason. The country has gorgeous beaches, an abundance of well protected and amazing wildlife, delicious food, and incredibly friendly locals.

While most people travel to Costa Rica for the gorgeous scenery and wildlife, we suggest you consider it as the perfect place for surfing lessons. Whether you’re a total beginner or someone who’s flirted with waves before, the best way to improve and enjoy the sport is to put yourself in some of the world’s most user-friendly surf breaks. Costa Rica has them and so much more.

For the best experience, we recommend combining your time on the beach with a mix of touring some of the country’s national parks to experience the famous “Pura Vida”-lifestyle.
