Mayköl Espinoza's Osa

For a surf destination like Costa Rica – one that’s seen a rapid development of surf tourism for decades now – it isn’t uncommon to ask if there are any spots left “off the map”. If there is still a place with world-class surf, that has somehow evaded the backpacker hubs and tourist traps.
One of the most remote, biodiverse places on earth, and host to one of the world’s longest left-hand waves, a trip to the Osa Peninsula is entrance to that space. Step into an off-grid surf wonderland, with wildlife guru and renowned local surfer Mayköl Espinoza as your guide.

of the Jungle

A self-appointed “student of the forest and sea”, one can sense the deep connection Mayköl Espinoza has with his environment when with him, walking through the jungle or surfing a local break. Raised in the rainforests of Southern Costa Rica, there may not be anyone more versed in the natural world of the Osa Peninsula like Mayköl.
Whether he’s pointing out the scarlet macaws in the canopies above, or motoring you across the bay to score the waves of your life at the leg-burning lefthander known as Pavones, his depth of local knowledge connects travelers to the ocean and land in a way unlike any other.
To me, home is a place to get grounded, surrounded by all this amazing nature and this really positive energy.

Leg-Burning Lefts,
or Leg-Burning Rights?

The beauty about surfing in Osa is that there’s a perfect wave for everyone, on any board, with an optimal surf season spanning March through September.
Ease into the surf with sand bottomed right-hand points, perfect to cruise on a longboard or even learn to stand up. Or, just a 5-10 minute drive away, challenge yourself with gorgeous reef right-handers that can handle bigger swells.
And of course, if you’re tired of going right, a 45-min boat ride across the gulf will land you in one of the longest left-hand waves in the world - and, it’s actually fairly easy to surf!

Where the
Road Ends

A largely undeveloped, lush region of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula owes much of that solitude to being situated within both Corcovado National Park and Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. A place where you can literally surf beneath rainbow-colored Scarlet macaws soaring overhead, then spot monkeys, sloths, agoutis, and boa constrictors all in the same day.
The Osa Peninsula is a region on Earth like none other. With sporadic tico (local Costa Rican) communities along the coast, where the paved road ends, the surf breaks begin.
Mayköl was absolutely tapped into all of the wildlife, and he also had a really great style in the water. You can tell how connected he is to this place...

The Osa Wild Life

Separated from the tourist trail, the remote Osa Peninsula offers a plethora of natural world wonders outside of firing surf.

Trek the Corcovado
