Iguana Surf – Tamarindo Surf Camp, Shop & School


Tamarindo, Costa Rica is a surfers’ paradise, drawing surfers from around the globe. One of the greatest attractions is the diversity and consistency of the surf, not to mention the year round balmy water temperatures. Tamarindo, located on the North Pacific Coast is ranked in the Top 10 beaches to learn to surf in the world.  The bay offers a long, clean curl that is great for beginner surfers.

Iguana Surf Shop and Tours has been operating in Tamarindo for more than two decades.  As Tamarindo’s oldest surf shop, we hold some bragging rights when it comes to the fact that we have taught over 100,000 beginner surf lessons, but hey who’s counting right?:)

The original Iguana Surf building was once a famous landmark known as the Tamarindo Surf Rancho. During a fire in 2009, this structure was completely destroyed. Today, the original building is survived by its two sister locations; Iguana Surf @ the Beach is located directly in front of the most popular surf spot in Tamarindo and our Iguana Surf @ Barcelo is located in the largest All-inclusive Hotel in Town.  Our fully stocked beach location surf shop in Tamarindo is open to the public 8am-6pm daily and is a one stop shop for surfers, offering;  surf lessons in Tamarindo, a selection of over 125 surfboard rentals in Tamarindo, surf accessories, Iguana Surf merchandise,  and our Tamarindo Tours / Information Desk where you can book any of the top tours in Costa Rica including  kayaking, sunset sailing, ATV excursions, snorkeling, and zip-lining just to name a few.

We love to share our knowledge of the waves and instill a healthy respect and awareness of the ocean in all of our customers – We take great pride and feel it is a privilege to teach others the art of surfing.  Our fail-proof teaching methods have been helping people learn how to surf since 1989.  Whether it be with a surf lesson in Tamarindo or our week long surf camp, our primary focus is on giving each student the best and safest surfing experience possible.
