One of the best beaches for beginner surfers is Tamarindo. Even though Tamarindo has become very touristy it still has a beautiful beach which is excellent for beginners. Banana surf shop rents boards for 24 hrs for $10 and can help you organize lessons.

Best hostel in Tamarindo

The best hostel in the expensive town of Tamarindo is La Botella De Leche. With a cow style theme this hostel has a pool and a communal kitchen with free computers. The prices are the cheapest in town and it is super clean. Family run it is very peaceful and a great place to meet other travellers. Buses usually drop off next to Zullymar hotel. Walk away from the water and it is across from Hertz on right side just past Super 2001 market.
