Day 1 - Playa Tamarindo

One of the greatest surf spots on the planet, Tamarindo draws a huge array of different crowds to its huge beach lined with several amazing surf breaks. Surfing is definitely not the only thing to do here, but you're crazy if you don't at least try to paddle into a few sets. The water is warm, the sand is soft and there are perfect waves for every level of surfer whether it's your first time or you're looking to get straight pitted! We also use Tamarindo as a jumping point to explore the incredible and much more quiet beaches surrounding the town. Playa Minas, Playa Grande, Playa Negra and Playa Avellanas are just a few of the amazing beaches found near Tamarindo and we'll have our pick for where to spend the day when we feel like getting out of town. Being such a popular surf spot, Tamarindo has also grown into an infamous party spot so when you feel like throwing down there is certainly no shortage of places and people to turn it up with! 

Day 2 - Santa Teresa

The small, surfer town of Santa Teresa stretches across a long, gravel road that runs parallel to several kilometres of very, very good beach breaks for every level of surfer. The waves of Santa Teresa have been pulling in surfers since people began travelling to Costa Rica and it continues to be the town's most popular activity. There can be a ruckus nightlife scene the odd night in Santa Teresa, but the priority of every backpacker, shopkeeper and ex-pat who's settled here is always: surf, surf, surf. And our time here on our 10-day Costa Rica trip is no different, even if we may dip into the rum at night, it'll be worked out sweating on the beaches and paddling out into the waves, because the waves and beach here is just way too good to let yourself sleep away the day in your room. Remember, there's no better cure to a hangover than catching a good wave!
