Whether you are traveling to Central America just for the purposes of a Costa Rica surf vacation or that is just one of many activities you plan to get into while down there, there is no doubt about the fact that surfing is loads of fun, and one of the most sought after activities in Costa Rica. This country is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and the best surf in the world. Whether you are a beginning surfer or you are a well seasoned surfer looking to grace some of the best beaches and surf the world has to offer, a surf vacation in Costa Rica is likely unlike anything you have ever done before.
Once you arrive in Costa Rica, the first thing you are going to want to do is hit the beach. If you have never surfed before this is certainly the place to start, but it is important to get proper instruction. Not everybody can surf well, but Costa Rica is home to some of the best surfers in the world. Get a little bit of surfing instruction in before you decide to jump in the waves—that may be the difference between whether or not you make it back out.
Another important part of the Costa Rica surf vacation experience is making sure that you have everything that you need. Many surfers who are seasoned professionals insist on taking their own boards and that is quite understandable. If you have been in the surfing thing for very long you are probably well aware of the fact that surfing with your own board is a lot like coming home. With a different board, everything is different. Pack yourself well, including a wetsuit, a first aid kit, changes of clothes enough for all the activities that you want to do (there is more than surfing to get into in Costa Rica) and a camera for plenty of pictures. This vacation is surely something that you will never want to forget.
Costa Rica is one of the biggest surf capitals of the world. You owe it to yourself to stop in and see what the hype is all about and take a little vacation for yourself at the same time. If you want the best surfing experience that money can buy, start preparing your Costa Rica surf vacation now. Talk to a travel agent, gather some surfing buddies, and get ready to hit some of the best waves the world has to offer on those waves.
