to kahuna - whats better and cheaper for a month, renting a car or buying one and selling it at the end of the trip? and is it better leaving it open to avoid brake ins?
to anonymous - Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen offer good surf for beginners with more advanced stuff on the outside break or just down the beach at suck rock to the north or Helena's to the south (a very heavy wave when it's goin off).
- i will be visiting cr in a couple days with my son who just started surfing. what would be the ideal place for him, about 1-2 ft, safe and nice. and the sickest wave for myself, please write back as soon as possible, thanx.
Mal Pais, Theives and Drugs - Mal Pais is one of surfings emerging secrets. I have a home there. I'm enchanted with the place. I've met surfers, literally, from all over the world. You can find any kind of wave you want within a 20 minute drive, from thick barrels to easy longboard style waves during peak wave season. The down side is thievery. Any thing you leave in your car will get stolen. They will steal your sandles if you leave them on the beach, and will steal stuff from underneath you while your sleeping. It's very annoying. We lost a dear friend to cocaine overdose. We are all very angry at the drug problem. If you're a druggy stay home. If you have the spirit of aloha, we would like to meet you, bring your friends. This place (Mal Pais) is amazing! Kahuna

crooks of costa rica - I want to address the letter from Ace Freely. Whether it's the crooks of Costa Rica or the neuvo rich pirates of Amelia Island, Florida, there are underhanded lowlifes everywhere.I've experienced people who will do anything to profit. It's a hard lesson.People have different values. But wherever I go I have to bring what good I can to the situation. I have felt anger at people in Costa Rica, and in my home town when they destroyed the island that I live on, with condominiums and concrete.I'm headed back down south, but now I have an education in living down there. It's a different culture.It is also good to hear someone express the truth about the downside of Costa Rica. It is the jungle.You have to hone your animal instincts.pura vida

Getting around CR - My first trip in CR with my girlfriend Will be spending a month or two between CR & Panama, is it easy to get around to the spots with surfboards by public transport?? OR better to rent some kind of wheels? Also can you surf Witches without having to go through the WRSC tour etc. Any info would be appreciated. Cheers all.
solo female - youll have no probs if you practice common vigilance.but you will get hit on by every gringo surfer.especially being a girl who surfs named sunny.just kidding,costa is so safe youll meet alot of solo travelers.have funmike
Solo Female in Costa Rica - I am planning a solo trip to Costa Rica in June. I have heard that for Central America, Costa is fairly safe. Being a female, I am wondering if the same rules apply. Wondering if there are many other girls who have done the same? Or any advice as I plan my trip... I am hoping to meet people along the way and would rather not go through a surf camp if possible. Cheers!
RE: I want to buy a Van - There´s a website in Costa Rica www.crautos.com, it might be useful in finding info on prices or buying it before you get to Costa Rica. There are lots of places to buy a used van to drive around but I suggest you use this site or you are gonna have to do a lot of driving and searching (waste precious surf time). It´s the Tico version of Auto Trader and it has the support and is owned by LANTECH, a major distributor of Compaq, HP, and partner with CISCO Systems in Costa Rica. Hope this helps!
