Surfing in SW Costa Rica

Waves are plentiful in the SW. There are over 6 different surf spots within a 30 minute drive from Rancho Diandrew and Casa Ricardo. There is a combination of beach breaks, reef breaks, river mouths, and beach/reef breaks. There are spots for beginners, intermediates, and experts. Surf schools in the area are plentiful as well. If you would like specific information about the breaks in the area we suggest you reach out to us personally. For absolute beginners and tourist lessons (just trying surfing for the first time/unsure whether you want to take it up as a lifestyle) we recommend South Surf Costa Rica. Josue and crew are legit! If you are an intermediate or committed surfer in need of advanced coaching or guiding, contact us directly, and we’ll set you up with a local pro. If you’re interested in a surf retreat experience, check out Conatus Surf Club. CSC is surf education and media company out of NY. They host a few exclusive retreats a year at Rancho Diandrew. CSC is owned and run by Dion Mattison, one of the brothers who own Rancho Diandrew.
