MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS

Costa Rica is known for its miles of white sandy beaches, monkeys swinging in the trees that line the sand and endless waves that begged to be ridden. With the name Costa Rica meaning the “rich coast”, it certainly lives up to its name by having some of the best surfing destinations in the world. From beginner to advanced, there is a wave for everyone along one of Costa Rica’s hundreds of beaches. Unpaved roads and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise.

Puerto Viejo has become one of the top destination surf spots for surfers in search of the best waves in Costa Rica. Because of its rolling coastline, white sand beaches and notoriously ‘hollow’ low tide waves, Puerto Viejo attracts surfers of different levels of expertise. Beginners, intermediates and advance surfers alike can find a perfect breaking wave that caters to their level of experience.

Selina Surf Club is located in Playa Cocle spot. Just 10 minutes of rest of the most importants spots in the area.

SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Demarcated by Nicaragua in the North and Panama in the South, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the East and the Pacific Ocean in the West. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the centre, bordered with low coastal lands in the East and in the West. More of half of the population live in this plain, with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean coast, 212 long. More cut and rocky, the Pacific coast spreads out 1 016 km, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas.

Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica. As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit year round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit.

"Pura Vida" is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans, and it reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life. Literally translated, the expression means: “pure life” and denotes a simple life, free of stress, a positive, relaxed feeling.

Formalities: For French nationals, a passport valid 6 months after your return home is compulsory, a return plane ticket as well. No visa for stays of less than a month.
The capital is San Jose.

Language: the official language is Spanish. Second lenguage: English.

Health: No vaccine is required to enter Costa Rica. Nevertheless, think about taking a treatment against malaria if you wish to hazard in the jungle.

Time differences: -7 hours in winter, -8 hours in summer.

Weather: Costa Rica is a tropical country and only has two seasons: humid and dry.
The dry season usually lasts from the end of December to mid-April.
The wet season lasts the rest of the year. The Caribbean coast remains humid all year long. Temperatures not change too much.

Nearby airports to Puerto Viejo: San José  (4hrs) and Limón (1hr). Book your Selina Surf club airport transfer.

Environment: Here, there are no hollow promises but a true political will and a life reference. Everything has been settled for more than 15 years now, for a harmonious and lasting development. Ecology in Costa Rica is a position for the whole nation.

Water/Electricity: Do not drink the tap water and bring along medicine for intestinal problems. Use an American outlet with flat connections because the electric current is 110 V.
