If you are going to Costa Rica to surf like 95% of the tourist do, then you cant miss Playa Hermosa. This beach has the best breaks in Costa Rica and extends for about 10 miles. The entire beach is full of surfers every single day, and some even have bought beach front property and now live there permanently. We made a mini documentary while we were there, and got to interview some local surfers. I hope you enjoy this video and it propels you to head over there and catch a wave! 

How to get there:
10 minutes south from Jaco, Costa Rica
