With a mix of gentle waves and more challenging surf breaks, Jaco Beach (Playa Jaco) offers a fun experience for both advanced surfers and first-timers. Indeed, the Costa Rica resort is renowned as one of the best surf beaches in Central America. Here are your options for surfing in Jaco.
What You will receive is. We provide boards, rash guards, pickup from hotels around Jaco. Your instructors can teach all experience levels for surfers looking for a refresher lesson to beginners who’ve never ridden in their lives. For beginners, the instructors demonstrate how to stand up on the board and how to paddle before taking you in the surf. Out among the waves, instructors will help you choose the right wave, push you to help catch waves and correct your form as you find your balance while riding on the board.
For those with a little more experience, you’ll paddle with instructors out past the breakers where you’ll learn how to pick waves, catch them on your own and ride the green (where the wave has yet to break).
The farther north you move up the beach the bigger the waves get, so while the south end has smooth, spilling waves the north end has powerful barreling waves better fit for more experienced riders.
