Costa Rica is a well known and well developed surfing destination - especially since featuring in Endless Summer 2; direct flights from the USA also add to its popularity. The country is safe, beautiful, friendly and blessed with great surfing on both coasts. It is, however one of the more expensive countries in the central and south Americas, with the positive aspect that hotels are good quality and car rental relatively easy and safe.
The surfing can be broken into three main areas: The Pacific North (Guanacaste-Nicoya), the Pacific South (Punta Arenas) and the Caribbean. Surf towns are developing in places such as Jaco, Tamarindo and Puerto Viejo. Year round warm water, warm air and offshore breezes (in Guanacaste) make for great conditions. The best waves occur in the rainy season (northern Hemisphere 'summer') on the pacific side, and in the hot dry season ('winter') on the Caribbean - ensuring that you should be able to find surf someplace.
The rainy season (especialy September and October) are very wet - with most of the countries secondary roads becoming impassable (even to 4x4s).

4x4 or 2x4 car in January? - I'm going to Costa Rica (Avellanas, Guiones, Santa Teresa, Esterillos e Limon) in January (dry season). Even so I need a 4x4 car, or in the dry season I can take a 2x4?
Thanks a lot for the opinions!
