Camping at Ollies Point? You Can’t Camp at Ollies!

Camping at Ollies Point? You Can’t Camp at Ollies!

That’s what they said when me and 3 of my friends decided to take a boat trip up to Witches Rock and Ollies Point.

For those of you not familiar with either of these spots, they are probably the most well know surf spots in the northern pacific coast region of Costa Rica. In order to get to either spot you need to take a boat. Typically what most people do is drive up to Coco beach from Tamarindo and hop a boat from there. Coco is about an hour from Tamarindo by car. The boat from Coco to each spot is about an hour to an hour and a half. Below is a map that will help provide better detail.

Off to Surf Mecca! Santa Teresa Costa Rica

So back in late February 3 of my good friends from Ocean City, MD decided to pay us a visit down here. Dave Hooks, Rob Lewis, and Tom Harvey decided to break away from the freezing cold and enjoy some fun in the sun.

They came down for a week flying into San Jose. They had a bit of crazy trip getting here. I believe they left Baltimore at something like 6am got to somewhere in Panama at 12pm. Had a 6 hour layover there. Flew into San Jose around 9pm and then drove 5 hours over night to get to Tamarindo. I think it was fair to say they were troopers.

Snorkeling, Funky Creatures, and Kristina’s Arrival in Costa Rica!

So I’ve been slacking as usual. Sorry for taking so long to get some fresh content on this bad daddy. So I’m making sure to do it right this time around. Lots of things happening over the last few weeks so let’s begin.

Right before I left for Kentucky for X Mas a few of my friends and I decided to throw a impromptu Christmas Party. We decided to have our shin dig on a local Catamaran Boat. It was a pretty sweet deal. For 45 bucks we got 4 hours on the boat with food and free drinks. Mid way through the trip they dropped us off in a local cove to do some snorkeling for about an hour. Below are a collection of pics I took off and on the boat acting a fool.
