    Here's a good problem to have....

    I have an opportunty to step away next week for a quick surf trip. I've narrowed it down to Ixtapa/Saladita and the Mal Pais area of Costa Rica. I can get a miles ticket with easy itinerary to these places...

    I've been to Costa Rica, so I know what's involved, where to stay etc. Have not done Saladita so I'm tempted to check it out. If you have an opinion, please let me know.

    Thanks

    I have a few local friends here that recently competed in the Mexi Log Fest this summer and they all loved Salidita Guerrero. The surf was great and they said the locals were really nice as well. I say if you have done Costa Rica, give Salidita a go!

    Nicaragua is an option too. Right now I'm 50/50 between CR and Nicaragua.

    Made it to Malpais. Scored overhead tropical rocky reef righthanders for half a day today. Cool vibe in the water. Good way to put the corporate bullshit and other crap in context. Had to find a break with some shadowing. Would not have made it out in the big beach break today.
