Dominical, Costa Rica

As you can read in this article about one of my surf trips through the area, Dominical is one of my surprise favorites for a surf trip to this part of Costa Rica.

It is easy to get to from San Jose, yet after you pass through Jaco and Quepos, the crowds start to drop off pretty significantly.

Dominical is a small town, but right off of the main road (unlike the 4 hour drive from Liberia to Nosara), so it is an easy call if you have limited amount of time. However, the surf in Dominical will not disappoint.

Dominical is simply one of the most beautiful, yet most accessible and manageable, places to hit on your Costa Rica surf trip.

Mind you, the rocky beach may not make it the best place for beginners. For those intermediate surfers and above, this place can light up.

Getting to Dominical Costa Rica

Dominical is an easy couple of hours drive from San Jose. Just head towards Jaco, and continue south.

Be sure to have some small change colones with you for tolls!
