p style=\"text-align: justify;\">If you are coming to Costa Ballena, you should definitely learn to surf and if you are an advanced surfer, well you’re in for a treat. Surfing is an experience like no other, and one of the reasons why Costa Ballena is a very special place.

For intermediate surfers, Playa Hermosa has great waves and for the more advanced surfer, Punta Achiote and Playa Dominical provide consistent waves and are locals’ favorite surf spots.
