The Pacific Ocean
These swells barely register down in Golfo Dulce which needs a perfect S-SW angle to penetrate and also stimulate the outstanding lefts of Pavones. So while Costa Rica is certainly a year-round destination, not all areas work every one of the time.

The tropical storms that form off the Mexican mainland from May to November always take a northern trajectory, so rarely will these storms (locally referred to as cordonazos or chubascos) create much surf for El Salvador, Costa Rica, or Panama.

Costa Rica’s 2 seasonal variations are the dry “summer” season (verano), from Jan via April and also the stormy “winter months” season (invierno), running May through December, making them counter-intuitive for a north hemisphere country. The wind set-up for Costa Rica is nearly optimal with plenty of light or glazed wind problems throughout the year. In the summer season, the dry season, near-constant NE offshores prevail, specifically in Guanacaste.

As the rainfalls show up, katabatic morning offshores give way to a light SW-W ocean breeze that will certainly emerge by midday, yet does not constantly damage the surf. Meso tidal range (2-4m) expands throughout Pacific CR, leaving some waves non-existent at above and also reduced by high tide. When to go is as essential as where, unnecessary to claim that all waves are affected so knowing.

Caribbean Sea
Whenever Central America’s Pacific coasts go flat, which isn’t really frequently, a brief trip to the east-facing shoreline opens the opportunities supplied by the Caribbean Sea. Big and also effective waves lash the Caribbean side of Costa Rica from December to April.

Cold fronts as well as anxieties north of Colombia are responsible for the unexpected winter waves, while rogue typhoons can regurgitate swells with the June to November season. A brief home window on either side of July is additionally worth noting and while the Caribbean coastline is typically wetter than the Pacific side, Sept-Oct can be nice and bright, however usually level. NE-E winds can be an issue throughout the prime swell months of the dry period, so stand up early to take advantage of the overseas wind coming down from the Talamanca coastal range.

Tides never exceed 1m on springs, however, don’t be fooled by the mini range that can have a death or glory result on the already superficial reefs shelves.

The Surf
Guanacaste province abuts Nicaragua, so the consistent, nearly year-round offshores are extra widespread at the north breaks like Potrero Grande (Ollie’s Point) and also Playa Naranjo (Witches Rock). This location is bordered by National Park and needs time, money and effort to accessibility, generally by watercraft from Playa del Coco.

The benefit for all the effort is just one of the most fun you can have legally in CR or crystalline tubes in among the country’s most recognizable surfing spots. Down the coastline is the magnetic party town of Tamarindo, where browse vacationers of all creeds gather to evaluate their mettle at the numerous reef, river mouth as well as beach breaks that surround the community.

Tamarindo is not the area ahead for empty waves, however simply down the shore past the growing browse institution communities of Nosara and also Guiones, the southerly coast of the district sees a lot of much less frequented beach break at Buena Panorama, Samara, Carrillo, and also most notably Camaronal, where any sniff of S swell will certainly hit the river-fed banks. Carillo has some sizeable, offshore reefs, and also regional surf drivers offer boat trips for the journeymen, while novices have a simple wave in the protected bay.

Costa Rica’s Pacific coasts count on the dependable, year-round, long-distance, SW swells from the South Pacific, where reduced pressure systems simply to the east of New Zealand seem to generate the most legendary waves, in spite of a journey of up to 12,000 km.

From May to October is the prime SW swell period, which corresponds with the stormy period, and needs to see the greatest waves of the year showing up at the southerly areas. In the north of the nation, WNW revealed regions like Guanacaste will certainly be drier and are additionally much better situated to select up the smaller NW swells from the North Pacific during the Nov-March dry period.

Cold fronts and also depressions north of Colombia are accountable for the unexpected winter season waves, while rogue typhoons can toss up swells via the June to November period. A brief home window on either side of July is additionally worth keeping in mind as well as while the Caribbean coastline is typically wetter than the Pacific side, Sept-Oct can be warm as well as wonderful, yet generally level.

Costa Rica is without a doubt one of the most prominent Central American surfing holiday locations, drawing in a global group to frolic in the cozy waves that are on both the Pacific and also Caribbean coastlines. Factors like political security, vacationer facilities, clean water, natural charm, pleasant people as well as good safety and security compared to its neighbors has actually driven a tourism as well as residential or commercial property financial investment boom that reveals no sign of slowing down.

CR’s surf runs the full range  dimension, as well as each province flaunts at least one drawcard break, usually in the first-rate category. Volcanic black sand, squeaky white sand as well as craggy coral reef can all be found and while Costa Rica may not be the cheapest surf destination, Costa Rica is still a location where world-wide surfers from newbies to grizzled shredders can still discover that sensation of pure surfing in a superb unique atmosphere.

Central America forms the continental land web link in between North and also South America, showing features of both continents, plus a personality all of its own. The Pacific coastlines supply dimension and consistency, while the Gulf Of Mexico is brushed up by wind swell and also occasional hurricanes. Costa Rica’s Pacific shores rely on the reputable, year-round, long-distance, SW swells southern Pacific, where low-pressure systems just to the east of New Zealand seem to produce one of the most impressive waves, regardless of a trip of up to 12,000 kilometers.

This is because the bulk of the swell is pushed off the weather system’s leading edge as it travels eastern as well as the clockwise turning aids a SW direction of origin. From May to October is prime SW swell season, which accompanies the rainy season, and also need to see the largest waves of the year arriving at the southern regions. In the north of the country, WNW subjected regions like Guanacaste will be drier and also are likewise much better located to pick up the smaller sized NW swells from the North Pacific throughout the Nov-March completely dry period.
