Billabong World Surf Games Playa Hermosa Costa Rica

Billabong World Surf Games Costa Rica

Billabong World Surf Games Costa Rica

Surfing is great along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Generally you have far more surf than people, but this week Playa Hermosa (the one in Puntarenas, not the one in Guanacaste) is the site of the ISA Billabong World Surf Games and there are 5-10,000 people watching.  Stacey Murray & Stephanie Green of Del Pacifico have been reporting each day, and took the photo posted here. If you’re interested in buying a property near a beach where you can surf every day, perhaps you should look at del Pacifico, which offers completed condos and homes as well as lots in their gated community. Their next weekend Gathering, where you can experience life in Costa Rica, is in August. And yes, you can surf while you’re there, whether you’re an expert or a beginner.

Costa Rica is the “happiest” country

CNN reports that Costa Rica is the happiest place in the world. It says a recent report from an independent research group in Britain says that the Costa Ricans report the highest life satisfaction in the world and the second-highest average life expectancy of the new world. 143 countries were surveyed. The United States ranked 114th and was greener and happier 20 years ago.

From personal observation, the Costa Rican people, or Ticos, are friendly, welcoming and enjoy the Pura Vida. It’s a pleasure to be around them.
