- Rips / undertow
Series of beach breaks that break over a sandbar; waves are short and tend to jack up creating a steep, fast entry with a slow, ride with lefts and rights. Best conditions in the early morning at mid - high tide.
Lineup is just at few paddles distance and waves are constant throughout day and tides. Watch rip-currents!

Puerto Viejo...nice spot - Was here in early December. Puerto Viejo is a nice little town. Lots to do, and the people are great. Stayed at a sweet spot called Jacaranda ($25/night). Cocles is a little down the road, so you should rent a bike to get down to beach. Waves were nice, but rides were short and close to shore. More of a bodyboard wave, but some good longboarders were ripping it up on the main break. Love me some Costa Rica, pura vida!

Isla cocles - Paddle out to the island.....The left reef break is usually better than the beach break.
