We are nearing December and the trade winds that usually come with it, affecting mainly the pacific coast. For surfers, this means great swells for surfing. These swells are so large that locals and travelers are able to surf at beaches that do not offer waves for surfing during the rest of the year.
Some of the more popular beaches for surfing in the Guanacaste area are:
- Tamarindo Beach: Great beach for begginers (surf lessons)
- Avellanas Beach: Large waves, beautifull beach. Surf Tournaments are held at this beach.
- Negra Beach: For more experienced surfers. Reef Break.
- Playa Grande: Also large waves and better suited for experienced surfers,
Beaches further south are also great for surfing but are a bit too far for travelers staying in the Papagayo/Coco area.
