I quite a beginner and I always wanted to come to Costa-Rica , unfortunately the only time available for me is september-october. I've heard alot of conflicting stories about that time of year.
Some say its raining all day , the see is full of debris and the surf is bad and all the stores are empty. Others say there is rain but no problem to surf and its even better. And others say that in the north region Guanacaste there is less rain and better surf spots.
Could you please tell me if this is a good place to come for a beginner ? and also if there are still tourists and night life in that time .
Also do you recommend another place instead of costa rica that has lots of surf spots and some kind of social/night light?
thank you very much
