Located on the drive from Liberia to Playa Grande (in Matapalo) I stopped to pick up wax but made a great friend as well!! The young business owner has great values and is very well respected in the community - Heiner was exactly the person I needed to meet to make my solo trip to Costa Rica a memorable one. I wanted to stay away from the crowds of tourists and that’s exactly what he provided - finding comfortable and friendly accommodation and organizing trips to some of Costa Rica's BEST SURF SPOTS including Avellanas, Witches Rock and some secret local breaks. Meanwhile his lovely girlfriend patiently snapped professional quality pics. For anyone who wants to experience Costa Rica outside the tourist bubble regardless of surf level or activity interest I would strongly recommend a stop at Mini Mop surf shop!!!!!
