    2. Surfing

    From the west, Costa Rica is washed by the Pacific Ocean, and from the east – by the Caribbean Sea. This location and warm climate make the country a great surfing destination. This is what attracts millions of tourists here every year.

    The country’s authorities are promoting the development of surfing. They sponsor the opening of special surf schools and camps (where you can get the necessary equipment and learn the art of conquering the waves under the guidance of a coach or improve their skills if you already have experience), develop infrastructure and try to do everything to make everyone could join the sport.

    3. Volleyball

    Volleyball is also very popular among the population of the country. It is actively pursued in schools, colleges, universities and at the professional level. National teams of countries regularly take part in world championships, Olympics and other international competitions. The women’s volleyball team won the Central American Games 8 times and won silver and bronze medals each time.
