Costa Rica is famous for its waves and is one of the top three surfing destinations in the world. The water is warm year round and the waves are great any time of the year as well. The rainy season can often be the best time to go when it isn’t as crowded. The surf is also good on both sides of the country and there are a lot of great breaks to choose from. If you are new to surfing, there are also a lot of great surf schools that will teach you everything you need to know.
The stone spheres of Costa Rica's South Pacific are one of the most outstanding examples of art and technology of pre-Columbian America. A few decades ago, they were considered a great mystery. However, recent archeological research can answer many questions that come up when one comes to know these extraordinary sculptures.
