By far the biggest risk in Costa Rica is related to the less than modern roads, and the less than careful drivers. This risk can be minimized by driving only during daylight hours until you become accustomed to the "exotic" driving conditions, wearing seatbelts, and trying to take your longer drives in the morning if traveling during the rainy season. Other possible health concerns may include: Water is safe to drink in most of Costa Rica. However, bottled water is recommended for newcomers. Malaria is not a danger for travelers in Costa Rica. According to the Ministry of Health, there are only a few isolated areas of the country where cases have been reported. Cholera has not been a serious problem in Costa Rica because of a concerted effort on the part of health officials to identify and treat any cases imported from other countries. Mosquitoes are usually not a problem. Bug spray is often useful at sunrise or sunset during the rainy season, when the "no see 'ems" especially enjoy a nip of your feet and legs. What kind of health care is available in the area? A hospital managed by the Costa Rican government is located 15 minutes from the hotel. In addition, bilingual doctors are available 24/7 for any kind of emergency. During which months does it rain most? Costa Rica's Pacific coast enjoys a classic, predictable monsoon climate - i.e. there are only two distinct seasons: rainy and dry. Normally the rainy season runs from mid-April to mid-November. During this time, mornings are usually clear and it often rains in the early evenings. We recommend you check the links below to see a current forecast.

Lorenzo's passion for the ocean and surf was born with him. Since childhood his father, the founder of Manuel Antonio Surf School, taught him how to be respectful and comfortable in the ocean, from there it was a short step for him to become the leading instructor of M.A.S.S. Lorenzo's yoga practice helped him to become aware of the connection between surf and yoga, therefore enhances his teaching and surf practice.
