Febrero en Costa Rica // Nosara, Dominical, Rincón de la Vieja, Bocas Del Toro in Panamá

March 5th, 2018

A brief look at four microclimates of Costa Rica and Panama through the eyes of a pancake, EFS 24mm lens.

Nosara: The tiny surf town comprised of winding jungle roads leading onto a massive open beachfront with buttery, slow-breaking waves beckoning to be ridden all the way from the lineup to the beach. Rincón de la Vieja: "The old woman's corner," overlooked by the active complex volcano that houses geothermal sites of bubbling mud and steam pools, just don't touch them! Dominical: An enchanting, laid back jungle surf town home to fast, punchy, hollow waves that leave their rider paddling back out still beaming from the adrenaline caught on the drop in. Bocas Del Toro: The northeastern most part of Panamá that feels like another world, from the coral reefs, mangrove forests, and peaking dolphins, to the Caribbean surf, cold beers, and soccer field sunsets. "Febrero" is the second installation of our profile on Costa Rica by Basecamper Oliver Ambros.
