Session to remember! - I caught some overhead surf here at the end of my trip...one of the best sessions of my life. When I paddled out only two guys out and they went in. I caught about 20 waves to remember while my girlfriend laid on the beach and couldn't hear me hooting the whole time. Love Costa Rica

Little Hawaii where - OK, Little Hawaii is a long walk from Cabinas Olas. Once you get past the river it is way down as far as you can walk over a mile. It takes a bigger swell to break. You will see and hear big bombs breaking in a reef way far outside. It is a very long, long paddle. If you are not a good paddler, dont try to go there....you never make it back.
