My husband and I are visiting Puntarenas at the beginning of October (I know, the green season), and we're staying at the Fiesta Resort. I figured that way I could get my "resort" features and my husband could get is longboarding in at Boca Barranca, but I'm reading reviews that say the beaches in Puntarenas might not be the best and to watch out for Crocs!
Does anyone have any advise on good longboard breaks to visit, that might also provide me with some swimmable (?) beaches that aren't more than maybe 2 hours away? We're renting a 4x4, so we'll have our own transportation and we're not afraid of an adventure. Ultimately it would be nice to drive to a beach and spend the day and find a little off the all place to get a bite to eat.
Any info would be great!
