And that’s a good thing.

Besides being simply gorgeous – the beaches of Malpaís and Santa Teresa consistently are named the best beaches in Central America – Malpaís is a revered surf spot in Costa Rica. And the surf

While there may not be 70-foot point break waves like in the movies, Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast still sports some of the top surf spots in the hemisphere.

If Costa Rica's professional surf scene had an A-team, it would look something like this: Carlos Muñoz, Jair Pérez, Noe Mar McGonagle, Gilbert Brown, Anthony Fillingim, Luis Vindas, Leilani McGonagle, Lisbeth Vindas, and Nataly Bernold.
