Dive equipment shop in Costa Rica

Does anyone here know if there is a proper dive equipment shop in Costa Rica. I only have soft gear so far, and would like to buy all the hard gear. What I’m mainly trying to do, is not carrying two heavy bags over from Switzerland to go do my IDC. And i thought it would be somewhat cheaper anyway.

Thanks for any advice.

Firstly ask IDC provider what do they offer (to buy or rent). Rental still might be better option and some stuff might be included in the course. Secondly where you’ll be staying in Costa Rica?

Good idea, I will. I thought it would be time to get some equipment of my own. But it’s always the travelling around with it that makes it difficult. And then if you’re away long time you really don’t want to take it along on your not diving part of the trip.

I was planning to go to GoPro Costa Rica in Quepos. But I’m not sure yet if I’m going to make it. The session is end of January, and I’m still learning next to my job to earn travel and course money. Will see, maybe i’ll end up going to Nicaragua or Honduras if they have more suitable dates.
