Beach/Surfing/Rainforest - Recommendations?

I'm going to Costa Rica at the end of June for 6 days. Where would you recommend we stay? We are looking for a beautiful beach, rainforest areas, and a beach nearby that is good for surfing. Since our trip is short we dont want to spend too much time commuting.

Thank you!

I would fly out to Tambor and then taxi to the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa area. Miles of beaches, surfing community and the Cabo Blanco reserve is about 45 minutes away.

My best recommendation is for you guys to fly into Liberia and go directly to either:


Playa Grande


All have great surf, Flamingo a little less than others.

Here you will be centrally located and plus you can take tours to rain forests and volcanoes:

Palo Verde tour, which is bus and boat tour

Rincon de la Vieja - waterfall hike, volcano and dip in naturally heated hot springs and mud pools

plus you can do canopy in the area and other fun activities.

Hope this helps,
