I’m traveling to Costa Rica in a few weeks and am looking to learn how to scuba dive. I’m flying into San Jose and will be traveling up to Nicaragua along the pacific coast, so I’d prefer to find a place around NW Costa Rica, like around Playa Del Coco. Any ideas of good places? Or would I be better off traveling to another part of the country to scuba dive?

Any input would be great. Thanks!

Almost any town along the Pacific coast will have dive shops where you can learn to scuba. If you want a selection to choose from, visit a larger resort area, like maybe Jaco Beach — LOTS of scuba dive shops there!
