Hey I don't know if I'm too late, but I've skated a bit in Costa Rica and there's some good stuff around. In San Jose there's a park with a checkered floor that you can see in the first Tiltmode video. Street stuff is around, but the ground is pretty rough in most areas. If you're headed to either Tamarindo or Jaco, there's a snake run in both. Plus when I was there they were building this place, which looks fucking insane. http://www.concretedisciples.com/skateparksdb/skateparks_display.php?id=2062. Have fun man, I'm jealous.

I was there early this year. Skated the tamarindo park. Reminded me of the random parks I skated on family trips in like 2005. Old Surfer Expats doing kickturns. I didn't see a skateshop. Just surf shops that sold completes or had a small section

Maybe try getting in touch with https://www.instagram.com/franciscosaco/ who made "CANASTA", or https://www.instagram.com/miggcastro/ (has the first part), great people who might help out:

I literally skated tamarindo park in 2005. I've been dreaming about that place ever since. Can't wait to go back some day

Ive never been but I have a lot of friends from Costa Rica. Skating is pretty dope over there from what Ive seen. Dont know how far you will be from Guanacaste or San Jose but there are a few parks and spots in general.

I regret not bringing my board in 2012, I stayed in Manuel Antonio on the pacific side. If you like relaxing and/or the ocean and getting a glimpse of wild animals, definitely check out Manuel Antonio
