Where to surf in Puerto Viejo Costa Rica

  1. 1. WHERE TO SURF IN PUERTO VIEJO, COSTA RICA? The Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is known for its world class surfing. The famous “Salsa Brava” waves start just beyond the coral reef. Around the area of Puerto Viejo and Cocles there are waves for all levels. SURFING IN PUERTO VIEJO COSTA RICA
  2. 2. PLAYA NEGRA  Playa Negra in Limon is an exposed beach break that has very consistent surf Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the ideal wave angle is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Rarely crowded here. Surf Report Click Here
  3. 3. PLAYA COCLES  The beach breaks of Playa Cocles are mellow and fun, perfect for beginners, while a short left breaks beside an island at the north end, offering mid tide slashable walls, until the swell gets overhead. Surf Report Click Here
  4. 4. PLAYA CHIQUITA  Playa Chiquita is minutes from Puerto Viejo, Limon. This area is an off-the-tracks surfing destination in winter months, and snorkeling and diving in the summer.
  5. 5. PLAYA GRANDE  From September to October the waves roll onto the beach like ripples from a stone cast across the pond, but from December through March the waves grow big enough to ride making Playa Grande a popular surf sport.
  6. 6. SALSA BRAVA  The road gets rough to Puerto Viejo, but is worth the hassle as it is home to the notorious Salsa Brava, a righthand reefbreak that can hold 12ft+ (4m). This fairly short, barreling wave with two distinct sections is consistent, heavy and crowds are the rule, especially from Dec to March. The outer reef, Long Shoal, has steep, fast take-offs into short shoulders, perfect for experienced surfers willing to make the long 3km/2mi paddle/boat ride to escape the SB crowd.
