Dominical Costa Rica. A Budget Gem! by Erik Guldenzopf
Great year round surf, great weather, free camping(last time I checked). Even showers and
restrooms. Great reliable surf most of the year, around 2 meters average. There is a nice
river at the north end of the beach, however crocodiles are most likely present so be aware.
Further upstream it looks like a perfect river for white water rafting, kayaks, tubes and maybe even a jetboat!
Dominical is known for its entrepreneurial flea market atmosphere as well. It is a great place
to buy and sell souvenirs and other items.
As you can see it is a VW friendly place for our vintage VW Golf Mk 1 convertible. There are some Kombi vans in Costa Rica, but they are more popular in Mexico and Brasil.
We have some good hostel bargains here from $12 a night! Costa Rica has lots of Land Rovers now, some nice ones. They have beach parties here occasionally. There are several places to eat including a nice pizza shop.
