West Coast in June/July

My husband and I would like to stay on the West Coast in late June/early July. He's an avid surfer, and we've never been to Costa Rica. Where should we stay where there is a good, but not over crowded surf break this time of year? Is there good surfing on the East Coast? How easy is it to get from the West coast to Boca del Toro? Is it best to fly into San Jose? Thanks for any insight!

You can surf on either coast. It just depends on what else you are looking for.

This might help: www.puertoviejosatellite.com This will also show you how to get to Bocas del Toro.

There's also good surfing in the Dominical area in the south Pacific. Take a look here: www.surfcr.com

If you decide you want to visit the Caribbean coast, best to fly into SJO. If you decide you want to visit the upper Pacific coast, best to fly into LIR. If you decide you want to visit the lower Pacific coast, SJO.

Best time for surfing Puerto Viejo is Dec-March, sometimes you'll get a swell in late June-July, but don't expect much, Sept-Oct is like a lake out there.

Hattie looks like SurfCR is dead. I used use that resource for guests as well :-( Guess we have to find a new one.
