Pavones is located on the Southern Pacific of Costa Rica, near the border of Panama. It's considered the 2nd longest left hand break in the world. And take my word for it, when there is a south swell, Pavones is the place to surf.

Here are a few of the pictures I have taken in Pavones about 150 yards from my surf cabin.

If you are interested in renting the Surf House of Pavones (long or short term), or if you have any other nice Pavones or Punta Banco surf pics, send 'em over and I'll try to put them up on this page!

Surfing Pictures at Pavones Break (150 yards from the cabin)

Workin a small day Is there a more perfect wave? Breathe dude!
He didn't stop smiling for a week. Why not? Hey, that's me in that picture!
In Punta Banco, I was perfecting this killer hand plant trick. This is a few seconds later, after I successfully pulled off the hand plant :)

Animals - Surfers aren't the only thing in Pavones!

If I had $1 for every iguana in Pavones! They say these Garrobo things can shoot their tails in defense! Cute little guy
Sloth chillin' Cahuita (the caribbean side of CR rocks!) Hey toucan! Get away from my papayas!

Landscapes - Pavones is surrounded by natural beauty, hills, animals, monkeys, rain forest, rivers, which you can enjoy hiking or on a local horseback ride!

This is where you end up after a really long Pavones wave! Punta Banco's Point - a few miles down the road. Gotta love them Pavones low-tide rocks!
Stuck in Punta Banco with no car, not so bad! Leaping from the bridge can be dangerous! Shot of the Pavones Cantina. The cabin is about 100 yards behind it.
