Nosara combines top of the line style accommodations and eateries with the remoteness of a Tico beach town. You won’t be charged an arm and a leg for a meal, but don’t expect the prices of southeast Asia street cuisine—how I miss me some Gado Gado from the stalls of Bali.

View From Bali

by Derek Dodds August 13, 2016

The sweltering heat hit us as soon as we got off the plane in the land of palm trees and black-sand beaches. As a remedy for sweat-drenched shirts at dinner and the instant regret that came with stepping out of the hotel room and its heavenly air-conditioning units, Zeke Lau threw buckets of salt water skyward and found the perfect hideaway right in the barrels of Bali's reef-breaks. "Views from Bali" brings you power, ferocity, precision and drum-roll… Rihanna? You’ll see.

Located only a short 2 hour drive from San Jose, Quepos serves as an ideal place to start your surf journey (especially considering Dominical, Uvita, and Pavones are all just due south). Similar to every tourist heavy town in Costa Rica, you won’t find the 50 cent tacos and 1$ beers here, but you can definitely scrape by if you have a few hundred dollars in the bank account.

Planning a vacation to Santiago, Chile, Neruda's birth place is, is a must see. Though you can't surf in Santiago itself (except for at the wave pool), as it is about 2 hours from the coast by car, you can prepare for some excellent waves near the capital and enjoy this fabulous city before launching into the Chilean coastal towns.

It is nothing short of an adventure in Pacific Coast Paradise. There are endless surfing opportunities—with 300 days of waves per year—and plenty of other things to do as well. In this article we'll just talk about a visit to the capital.

Though Santiago itself sits in a valley not far from the sea, it will likely be your jumping off point for any trip into Chile.

She likes south swells, north swells, hurricanes and micro-weather systems. She will eat you alive in Puerto Escondido and crush you in the channel near the island of Todos Santos. She has many playful sides and walks the line between violence and joy, between life and death. She is wild. We love her. We fear her.
