Where to go in May and June?

Postby Rohan » Sat Mar 02, 2013 10:55 am

Hi everyone,

Just looking for a bit of advice, I'm looking to get away for some good waves, sun and good times in May and June. I have a couple of places in mind, Costa Rica or Brazil.

Anyone know much about them in these months? I know there will be good waves in both places, but advice on weather and cost of living and other things to do other than surfing?

Or maybe you could suggest something else?

Thanks :-)

Don't know about Brazil, but CR is cool. It's a little more expensive than other Central American countries, like Nica or El Salvador, but it is stunning too. Some good waves. It's the wet season, so it'll be wet...it can be really really wet, with roads washed away etc. You normally get some sun between the storms though. All the rain can play havoc with the water quality too.

Good variety of waves, depending on what you're after.


Personally, I'd go to El Salvador, as it's just got lots of right hand points, but I'm biased! And you need to be able to speak Spanish in El Salvador, less so in Costa Rica.


If you've got enough time, you could get the bus up through Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador etc. I did that a couple of years ago, and it was amazing!

How about as close to home as possible, you know it makes sense!

Hi...

There is a great calender on http://www.GoSurfAfrica.com. Just find your month of travel and it will show you where the swell is on - in Africa that is.

Also this non-profit surf guide has detailed guides for most African countries with surf - including tips and tricks for a safe and memorable surf trip to Africa.

Happy surfin'

Thanks for the advice guys. Just thought I'd let you know that I opted to go to Indo instead for a month. Having a sick time :-)
