One of the central pacific’s best kept secrets are the beaches of Esterillos. Esterillos Este is one of the cleanest beaches in the area and is well known for it’s consistent uncrowded surf, yet somehow it’s managed to retain it’s quiet secluded charm.

The surf is consistent year round with larger waves during Costa Rica’s green season (May - November). Beginner surfers can take a lesson from one of our local surf instructors and experience the stoke that has been caught by so many of us down here. Slightly more experienced surfers can rent a board and paddle out at their leisure. And if you’re feeling slightly less ambitious, but still want to experience the magic of the ocean, boogie boards are perfect for cruising.
