surf and diving/snorkeling

Trying to decide on the best beach locale for myself and a buddy, I surf he dives, know there any number of places, our first choice was Nosara but he thinks the diving isn't very good there? Thanks to all.

Dear ipbob3

Around Guanacaste...Tamarindo can be a good option...

Central Pacific...UVITA beach...check tikivillas...great surfing at Dominical and great diving at Caño Island...even during the summer whale watching tours...

You're friend is correct, there is no diving in Nosara, but the surf is fantastic.

There is diving in San Juanillo, about an hour drive up the coast, or in Samara, 30 minutes in the other direction.

Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side can be a good option, good surfing/diving combo.
