After a successful first edition in Costa Rica in 2009, we will again host the 2016 ISA World Surfing Games from August 6th-14th. This ISA mega event will take place along the central Pacific shores of Costa Rica, in the vibrant town of Jaco Beach, only 45 minutes from Manuel Antonio and Casa Tranquila. It is an ideal surf spot, enjoyed by experts, locals and visitors throughout the year because of its powerful and consistent waves. And Casa Tranquila is the perfect vacation villa to be your host for this Costa Rica adventure.

The International Surfing Association aims at attracting more than 130 world-class competitors from up to 30 countries. The 2016 surfing games in Costa Rica will be a milestone event, not only because the Costa Rica surfing team will be defending its title at home, but also because the surfing world expects a major announcement to be made in regards to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics inclusion of the sport.

We expect a record-breaking attendance to this world championship, which means a great boost for tourism, as the “world’s eyes will be focused on the Costa Rican waves, athletes, and friendly people.”
