Our opinion impressions of 360° Surf

Playa Avellanas is most certainly the best surf spot on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Without tourists, with large sandy beaches, turquoise water and perfect waves, it is the ideal place to learn to surf in Costa Rica. The surf school is located on one of the most versatile and consistent spots in Central America. The waves at Playa Avellanas can be incredibly easy to surf, but they can be serious in rough weather.
