Ride On! - Me and my friend will be ariving in Costa Rica on the 11th December at about 9pm. Just wondering if anyone knows of any cheap and decent places to stay fairly near San Jose! Cheers for any help.Sam
Be careful where you surf - I'm a Costa Rica surfer. I was writing to inform tourists that in some rivermouth brakes there are crocodiles. These crocodiles are fresh water crocodiles but they have a special gland in their mouths that allows them to swim and live in salt water environments. I have seen them up close and sometimes they will show up in the lineup looking for some tasty surf dudes. These rivermouths include: Tulin, Roca Bruja, Boca Barranca, Tivivies, and Tamarindo. Keep your eyes open for them. They are VERY big crocs!!! My friends and I were surfing the Roca Bruja rivermouth and as I was riding a wave I saw a 10ft croc cruising the lineup!

rainy season - Im here in costa rica now and I havent seen sunshine for weeks........ what a load of shite! John
rainy season - I went to costa rica during the rainy season and it rained every night but it was more like a sprinkle. It is not bad at all and the rain makes the scenery very beutiful and lush. During the day it hardly ever rained maybe a couple times.
Rio Claro and Gladice's - We were surfing these points before you parents were born, and now they are the normal surf destinations. We used to ride waves and have the local indians come down out of the hills and bless us. I learned to switch stance here and got tucked into barrels that you couldn't see out of cuz' the reef put such a bend in the swell. There were no restaraunts, no camps, and no grocery stores. And believe me at 18 years old and surfing all day, we got hungry. To try to catch something to eat we sent Andy Lameroux out with a pork shank one of the farmers gave us tied to his leash[we made our first leashes from bungee cord and leather strips] and sent him out from the 'schoolhouse' corner to paddle across and down around the corner at the 'cullo' to try and catch a shark so we could eat it. We surfed all over the country, but the only history is if you ask the locals at Tamarindo where Peter Pleskunas would kneeboard by himself for months alone cuz' we were all back up in San Diego. We did run into some Texans three years later on the east side, but we had Rio Claro alone for years thanks to Gladice and Munchin who had the ranch at Pavones, who let us stay in their rice shack. The era drew to a close when Danny Mack flew over with a Cessna loaded with drug proceeds, landed and bought up most of the peninsula. Kooks showed up thereafter. Danny ended up in prison in Mexico, where the jailkeepers bled him for his wealth to keep him alive, and them in cigarettes and ice cold beers. So the next time some guy gives you vibes in the water at Pavones, ask him if he knows Cachorro, or Chabo, or Don Jugo. If he does then you know he's a real local, and not a wannabe, because those men were the family men of the peninsula in the late sixties and early seventies. Aloha, mahalo, y adios vatos.
Costa rica in december - I'm going to tamarindo from december 25-1/4 how big and consistent are the swells at that time of year?
september - hoping to visit jaco for the 1st week in september.appears to be the rainy season & wondered if anyone can tell me just how bad the weather is as i'm coming from the uk.does it rain all day?
What time is it? - I am heading down to CR for the first time and (like everyone else) I want to make the most of it. Could someone tell me if there good enough surf Up and around Jaco, during the month of August, to avoid hefty car rentals.From what I hear it is easy enough to get a ride up and down a couple km. Thanks.
