Go south from Jaco about 45 min. and pull in to the nearest town(usually a small dirt road) on the right if it isnt it they will tell you. If you can't speak the language hand signals are good. If you go extremely to far (4 hours to far) you will eventually hit Quepos and that is chill but a lot smaller.

Be a very very good paddler because it takes about 30 min. to get out on a 6ft.-12ft. day. When you get there and you look at it, it will seem like it is really small from your place or on the road by the beach. Wait until you get out there it will be a lot different!!! Look out for floating logs they are probably crocs.
Always look for the beer truck. Don't leave anything in your car or near the windows of the place you are stayin or you will be robbed. Broke into the car and took some fishing tackle.
Really fun and really warm.

nombre of spot "Delpin" - Good spot to go to when their isn't a major swell running,but nothing speacial.It will be alot bigger there than most other beach breaks.Much like Las Palmas and El Rey.Surf straight out at the end of dirt road or all the way down at the far south end of road that goes along beach,there is a river mouth that sometimes has a really reeling right on the north side of the boca.Playa breaks best at mid-high tide.Almost always empty besides a small group of friendly tico surfeadors that live in that area.
