Mal Pais is a tropical beach town located on the southern Nicoya Peninsula in Puntarenas province of Costa Rica. The pretty little town was a fishing community and a farming village that slowly turned into an idyllic holiday hot spot over the years. During most of the 20th century, Malpaís was hardly known to the international community. The small village mainly sustained itself through a combination of agriculture and fishing. All that changed when surfers – both national and international – heard about the consistently good waves that the area received. Slowly but steadily, people began showing up to shred the swells that rolled onto the beaches of Malpaís. Once they saw what was on tap, they were hooked; many, in fact, never left and stayed around to open businesses. Within a matter of years, Malpaís began blooming into the funky, unique place that it is today.
