Pura Vida! That’s an expression you hear a lot in Costa Rica. As much as a saying, it’s an attitude about living and very much any surfer’s outlook, especially if they are surfing in Tamarindo.
With so many challenging breaks marking its coastline, Tamarindo is truly a surfer’s destination. Come here and you have a great base from which to explore. There are dozens of different breaks all within walking distance of just about anywhere you stay and an untold number of additional breaks if you have a vehicle or hire a local guide.
Even if you come to Tamarindo for one of the many other reasons that Costa Rica brought you (volcanoes, waterfalls, sloths?) chances are you’ll at least give surfing a try. So, if you’re looking for surfing in Tamarindo, regardless of you level of interest, you’re in the right spot!
From day or overnight excursions in a boat to remote world class breaks to day tripping down the coast by vehicle to challenging point, reef, beach or river mouth breaks, Horizon Pacific has the connections to make it happen for you.
Surfing is just one element of a Tamarindo surfing vacation. You need to have time for exploring the many other wonders of the country. The food, the history, the ecology, the natural beauty, the people (locals and travelers) all warrant some of your time.
