Lisa Vex

Written by guest contributor: Liisa Vexler I grew up a skier. We took family ski vacations. My dad learned to ski so we could enjoy the activity as a family. When my husband and I arrived in Tamarindo ten years ago, we enjoyed a beer at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp and watched surfers of all ages ride the endless waves. Shall we try it, we asked ourselves? Of course! We took a lesson. I rode a wave. You’re expecting me to say I was hooked, aren’t you? I wasn’t. Surfing is hard work at first, and since we were only [&hellip ...read post

How Rainy is “Rainy Season?”- What to expect during Costa Rica’s green months.

Green season clouds illuminating the sky for an evening glass-off

I saw rain the other day for the first time in almost 5 months. I was surfing out front in Tamarindo, and as the first drop fell from the sky, everyone in the water started cheering and hooting like they had reunited with an old friend. The downpour only lasted for about 5 minutes, but it was just enough to signal the official transitioning of the seasons.   The Costa Rican climate operates a bit differently than most other parts of the world. While North America experience 4 seasons of dynamic temperature changes and foliage, Costa Rica only experiences 2: [&hellip ...read post
