Hotel OasisMal Pais - Playa Carmen
Malpaís's location between the Central Pacific area and Guanacaste means that it benefits from both the big south swells which hit the beaches south of Puntarenas during the wet season as well as the offshore "Papagayo" winds which create optimum conditions on the Guanacaste coast.
The break of Playa Carmen is popular with all levels of surfers from beginner to expert with its variety of wave selection..
Rip tides and beach breaks at Playa Carmen are less powerful than in other surf spots of the Costa Rican Pacific, making the surf suitable for beginners to learn on.
The waves tend to get heavier, faster and steeper as you head north towards Playa Santa Teresa. Here it is easier to find more aggressive breaks with fewer crowds.
Many reef and point breaks can be found along the unspoiled tropical jungle lined beaches. So whether your a beginner/expert surfer or just enjoy long walks beach combing you can find it all here in the amazing area.
