So apparently some people go on vacation and do things other than surf. Personally I visited a few of the world’s wonders and I do find them amazing, sometimes for as long as an hour or two, but then in my opinion, it’s nice to get in the ocean.
As a result of this slightly blinkered surf centric approach to travel, I’m sure I’ve missed out on a few things which you might not want to. So if the idea of seeing a bit more of Costa Rica does appeal to you then I would suggest getting in touch with Matteo and Meranda at Out Of Bounds in San Jose.

Our door sports enthusiast and San Jose local, Matteo and his lovely Canadian wife, Meranda have not only set up a charming and homely little B&B in the nice part of San Jose, but they will also arrange tours for you to the cloud forest, the volcano and the hot springs of La Fortuna, among other things. So drop them a line if you fancy adding on a few days to your next trip to Costa Rica and seeing a bit more of what makes Costa Rica such an awesome place to visit.
