Bug Bay - Real work out, no easy way out. Big full wave, not that impressed. Place is bug capital of Costa Rica, in a way sketchy area. Go to Playa Grande ASAP.   Read Tamarindo Tubes Trip:

Surf in June - I'm planning on heading down to the Pacific side in June this year, I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on where to go. I'd prefer a sick point break, but beach breaks work too. Obviously, would like to avoid the crowds as best I can.

CR in January - I was on the Caribbean side last January and scored big. Now I would like to hit the SW coast. I know the offshores whip hard that time of year and there is a shortage of swell. What is the possibility of lucking out in the winter?
