THE BEACHES YOU'LL SURF WHILE STAYING WITH US

JACÓ BEACH

This 4km beach has good waves all year with an average water temperature of 83-85F. Surf lessons are generally taught on Jaco Beach, which is approximately 4km long with moderately good waves. The surf here is best when the tide is coming in, therefore the timing of your lessons varies day to day. Playa Jaco is protected by an isthmus to the south, making this a forgiving and fun area popular with Costa Ricans from San Jose and across the country.

PLAYA HERMOSA

Playa Hermosa is known as one of the most consistent beaches in the world with a length of approximately 8km and many breaks to choose from along the wave. Our surf coaches are often found training at Playa Hermosa in the morning and evenings and are happy to share their knowledge of the breaks with our experienced and true intermediate guests. Strong currents may discourage beginners, as waves can reach 10 feet high consistently.

Playa Esterillos

Esterillos is a beautiful beach with powerful currents and undertows which make it unsafe for swimming. The waves break pretty far out, but are fairly consistent and particularly good for long boarders. The swells come from the north, northwest and south, and the bottom is sand and rocks. At high tide in Esterillos Oeste, you can find La Sirena, a mermaid statue emerging from the sea by our favorite surf spot!

PLAYA HERRADURA

Isla Herradura separates Jaco from Playa Herradura, and gives it enough protection to make it home to the area’s best flatwater SUP experience year-round. From June through November, there’s a beautiful long left-hand wave off Herradurra Island that’s fantastic for both surfing and SUP surfing. The town of Herradurra itself is a resort town home to the beautiful Marina Los Suenos, the heart of the Costa Rican sport fishing industry.
