Selina is located in Playa Cocle spot, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. It is just 10 minutes away from the rest of the most important spots in the area.

Puerto Viejo

Puerto Viejo has become one of the top-destination surfing spots for surfers in search of the best waves in Costa Rica. Because of its rolling coastline, white sand beaches, and notoriously hollow low tide waves, Puerto Viejo attracts surfers of different levels of expertise. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced surfers alike can find a perfect breaking wave that caters to their level of experience.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is known for its miles of white sandy beaches, monkeys swinging in the trees that line the sand, and endless waves that begged to be ridden. With the name Costa Rica meaning the rich coast, it certainly lives up to its name by having some of the best surfing destinations in the world. From beginner to advanced level, there is a wave for everyone along one of Costa Rica’s hundreds of beaches.

Unpaved roads and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise. Demarcated by Nicaragua in the north and Panama in the south, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the center, bordered by low coastal lands in the east and the west.

More of half of the population lives in this plain, with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands, and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean Coast, 212 kilometers long. More cut and rocky, the Pacific Coast spreads out 1,016 kilometers, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas. Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica.

As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit all year round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit. Pura vida is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans. It reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life. Literally translated, the expression means pure life and denotes a simple life, free of stress, a positive, relaxed feeling.
