Playa Danta is one of the best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches you will ever find. At medium to low tide the beach is very flat. The swells are moderate, safe, and beautiful. Spaced 15 seconds apart, perfectly formed, rarely choppy, originating way down in the southern hemisphere – these waves are unlike anything many of us have seen in other parts of the world. Costa Rica has many famous surfing beaches but Las Catalinas is partially sheltered from the prevailing southern swell, and that is what makes Playa Danta “just right” for the boogie boarding. It is easy yet thrilling, super fun for people of all ages, and probably the most consistently smile-producing activity I can think of!
