Best Beaches Near San Jose

We will be traveling in Cosat Rica the end part of August and want to spend the last two-three days at a beautiful beach not too far from the SJO airport (1-3 hours away) with semi decent place to surf. Any suggestions?

Jaco is close and good for surfing but not sure if it would ever be described as beautiful! Dominical is further down the coast but might be pushing your 3 hours journey time, even though is a great surf spot and a beautiful place to be.

The beautiful surfing beaches are around Jaco and not in Jaco itself but for pure beauty I would go a little bit further down the Costanera to Manuel Antonio. Dominical is also nice and great for surfing but a lot further than 1-3 hours.
