Breakdown:

Caribbean Coast - Nada for the right coast, best for snorkel and scuba this week.

Pacific Coast - South swell with a 16 second period gives the southern beaches some overhead waves through Tuesday. Then it bottoms out to waist to chest for most beaches until late Friday when a WSW swell brings a few overhead sets.

The Long Shot - A SSW arrives by the 26th with more overhead surf, but nothing big on the horizon as the South Pacific swell season nears its end.

Playa Grande

Louis at Hotel Las Tortugas

10/22 - The last couple of days have really had a rainy season look with a full bumpy ocean and surprisingly little rain mixed in with the sunshine. The ocean is still clear and warm without “chocolate milk” conditions in our area. Our morning sessions start next week, and the possibility of off-shores and good surf are excellent. Check the weather reports for the wind direction and catch some great overcast days before the clear weather sets in.

Tamarindo

Seafari Costa Rica

Alejandro at Seafari Costa Rica

10/21 - Swell conditions were minimum plus the stormy days kept is blown by the on shore winds, now looking forward for clean small conditions.

Tamarindo’s River Mouth is sharing some 2-3 ft sets. Playa Grande gets most of this small swell with some 3-4ft by Thursday, clean conditions in the mornings with a friendly crowd.

Bingo and raffle, October 21st, from 7 to 9pm, at Doña Lee’s Restaurant. Proceeds to “Homeless and Helpless” animal shelter.

10/22 - ​As you may know, this is without a doubt the slowest, rainiest, and onshore ridden time of year. We need it! It brings the rain that you will shower with later. This weekend we are looking at another nice 3' @ 15 second SW bump that will light up the area reefs. Could be overhead on the best tides.​ Friday, Monday, and Tuesday are looking to have the best condition morning windows for surf this upcoming week. Get on it early!​​ Don't forget to pick up a monkey T, sticker, or mug to help the areas Howler Monkey's. These souvenir purchases have helped to place over 400 monkey bridges in the area that traverse roads and power lines. Find them at Azul Profundo Boutique or Luna Llena Hotel in Tamarindo. Thank you and be safe!​​

10/23 - Nice and fun waves for today, with a morning a little after dark and left a bright sunshine and still continuing. The size of the waves has not changed we could say that this rainy season full of good waves continued in the morning and afternoon. Have a great day friends!

10/18 - Olitas pequenas. Shoulder high peaks, ultra clean, some spitting barrels early this morning and a clear blue sky. Overall excellent conditions the past few days. The swell has been dropping but the sandbars are working and when it's not storming it's rocking and rolling at Playa Dominical. Not many surfers in the water lately, not many bathers on the beach. Morning sessions best as usual but afternoon post-storm glass-off is common. It's been too small lately for the other local breaks to work although Playa Hermosa South has been mellow fun at mid-tides and Dominicalito has been small but clean at higher tides. Despite some hard rain a good crowd turned out - mostly locals for a change - for the usual Friday Night Festivities at Hotel Roca Verde. Ben Jammin' and the Howlers with Nancy Buchan on electric fiddle were wound up and charging and the second set of the evening found the dance floor full. Great food, great music as always.
