Cape Matapalo has three world-class surfing breaks and is a destination for surfers year round. Across the Gulf, Pavones has the longest left hand break in the northern hemisphere, second longest world wide. There is also surfing in Drake Bay and all along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica from Dominical to the Santa Elena Peninsula. Pan Dulce Beach in Matapalo is one of those rare places where there is a very long ride that is great for all levels of skill but also an ideal place for learners where the surf is gentle enough to make it easy to learn but big enough for everyone to learn to stand and ride. Tours vary according to the tide schedule and must be reserved in advance to ensure availability. Transportation to Matapalo is not included, so interested persons may either take the public transport at six a.m. and return in the evening or else take private taxi, rental car, or hitch-hike. This activity is great for all ages, and we have made new surfers out of all comers from three years of age to eighty-three years young.
