Cheap Flights, Rodeos, Barrels and Other Dry-Season Happenings

Offshore winds in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Are you bummed that Summertime is ending? Feeling hesitant to break out the sweatshirts and long johns? For many of our friends in the USA and Canada, Winter is coming which means thick wetsuits and cold swells. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Take the classic example from our friend & resident legend, Robert August, who lives the Endless Summer year-round here in Playa Tamarindo. No matter what time of year in Tamarindo, you’ll always find the sun, relaxed tropical vibes, and of course, World Class Waves.

We want to give you something to look forward to these Winter months. Come January, you’re going to be begging the surf gods for boardshorts and blue water perfection. So why not plan a mid-Winter Surf trip to Costa Rica this February (or anytime for that matter)? This is a perfect half-way point to raise your spirits and get you through the the remaining months in the frozen North. PLUS, we found some great flights to Costa Rica you can check out below.

Cheap flights:

We scoured the web and found great deals on flights from all over North America. These are some of the best deals we could find. Looks like February is the cheapest month to travel to Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR).

  • NYC $379 – $400  February (American Airlines)

  •  BOS $391- $420   February (United Airlines)

  •  YTO $297 – $330  February (American Airlines)

  •  LAX $440 – $500 February (Copa or United Airlines)

  •  DEN $515 – $515   February (Copa or United Airlines)

You can do some more scouring for flights by hitting up our favorite travel site Cheapoair.com, or contact our lovely reservations team, who have become professionals at finding the best flights, schedules and prices.

Don’t Miss: Rodeos, Turtle Tours, Surf n Turf & other Dry Season Happenings:

Aside from waves, dry season also brings us the following:

  • Rodeo & Fiesta Season: November thru April
  •  Robert August Surf -n-Turf Charity Event: Mid- March. Dates TBA
  •  Leatherback Turtle Tours: October thru February
  •  Return of All-day Offshore Winds: December thru April 
  •  Costa Rica Microbrewery Festival: Late March, Early April

North Swells & Barrels:

You didn’t hear it from us, but Tamarindo LOVES the big Northwest swells this time of year. The combination of offshore winds with these perfectly angled swells allows for day after day of perfect conditions at some of our favorite local waves. Witch’s Rock, the Tamarindo Rivermouth (Video) and Playa Avellanas are just a few of the waves that work well during the winter months.

For more info on these waves or others that we regularly surf during these months, take a look at our Local Surf Guide.

Thank you again for being a part of the Witch’s Rock Surf Camp family. It’s you that makes this all possible and we couldn’t be more grateful.
