Costa Rica Surf

Welcome to the most consistently perfect waves in the world…

Los Pargos is the town where Playa Negra is located. Playa Negra offers several restaurants: famous Peruvian food at Cafe Playa Negra, French cuisine at Villa Deevena, Tex Mex at Jalepenos and Pizza at La Vida Buena. It has developed to be a small village catering to the active lifestyle featuring: a yoga center, adventure tours, several small shops, surf shops, surf rentals and various cabinas and hotels. The atmosphere in the streets feels peaceful and laid back, and maybe it’s the great surf of Playa Negra which puts this happy grin on the faces of most people you meet here.

With some of the most consistent waves and surf breaks in the region Playa Negra is an incredible surf spot in the northwestern region of Guanacaste. This dark sand beach holds a reef break making it ideal for the beginner surfer as well as the expert surfer. The pristine beaches of Playa Negra are dark-colored and rocky in many parts. For sun-bathing and swimming there is a stretch of sandy, protected beach some 100m south of the famous break.

Playa Negra is unique in that it breaks on all tides, picks up most all swell directions and holds almost any swell. It is the area’s swell magnet, therefore super consistent. Conversely, Playa Negra is the first to pick up swells and hold them the longest, a surfer’s dream.

Playa Negra may be a little harder to get to; and in some cases even find — by driving through local dirt roads without directional signs but worth the adventure, but dont worry, you are with us. Plus, we are strategically poised to go explore some of the lesser-known spots that will go nameless. Let’s just say they are close by and no one wants to show you where they are. We will take you there.

I was overjoyed when I saw the house we were staying at in Sayulita. Every night I was lulled to sleep to the sound of waves outside. The house was very nice and the location was amazing. Our guides and instructors were awesome, and really provided a great time. Thanks again.
