La Cantina at Pavones
In the south pacific coast of Costa Rica â€śLa Cantinaâ€ť spot at Playa Pavones is our favorite wave in the country. The waves at â€śLa Cantinaâ€ť are so long that we recommend walking back to the start over paddling considering that on a good day the ride can last up to three minutes! The wave starts at the mouth of Rio Claro and end after a kilometer, so paddling against the current isnâ€™t a good idea if you want to sustain a complete session. The surfing conditions at Playa Pavones arenâ€™t consistent and considering the long trip we highly recommend going only when you are sure that there will be good setting. After the 3 minutes ride have a drink at â€śLa Cantinaâ€ť and walk back to enjoy our favorite spot in the country.
The Corner at Playa Hermosa
Playa Hermosa (in English means Beautiful Beach) is already well know as one of the best surfing spots in Costa Rica apart from being one of the few beaches worldwide with lights to surf at night, it is home of several national and international surf contests every year. If you really want to show your surfing skills â€śThe Cornerâ€ť at playa Hermosa has been voted the second best surf spot in Costa Rica. The waves are consistent all year long making it the most reliable surfing spot in the country. The water at â€śThe Cornerâ€ť is deeper than in the rest of the beach creating taller and longer waves with more sand bottom rights and lefts. On a good day with the proper conditions the waves con reach 200m maintaining their size throughout the ride allowing some spectacular tubes. The best conditions to surf at â€śThe Cornerâ€ť are at low to mid tide with a west/southwest swell.
