It’s a new year and you are itching for your first adventure of 2023. Why not try something completely different and learn something new? There are endless adventures to be had at our surf camp in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Now is the time to head to the beach and have an adventure Pura Vida style!
Pura Vida translates to Pure Life. It is a motto adopted by Costa Ricans to remember to take it easy, enjoy life, respect nature, and go with the flow. At Iguana Surf, we have adopted this philosophy into our surf camp and add-on packages. Worried you’ve packed in too many activities along with your surf lessons? Don’t worry! We will make it work for you. Like surfing, our lessons depend on the tides. Like the waves, your schedule is flexible and we will make sure you get to do everything you set out to do.
Our Surf Camp in Guanacaste Costa Rica
If your new year’s resolution included learning a new skill, make this the year you learn to surf. Surfing is a skill you can develop and travel with. A skill that allows you to meet new people with both similar and different interests. These are the kind of people you will meet at our surf camp in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. People who, like you, want to try something new and have an adventure.
During our five, six, and seven night surf camp packages, you will get a chance to choose between shared or private accommodations. Bringing a friend? Get 25 percent off. Two friends? 40 percent off!
Our beachfront boutique hotel offers four private loft suites for two people, a deluxe dorm suite for up to ten people, and a shared dorm and outdoor kitchen for solo travelers.
Located just a two-minute walk to all the restaurants and nightlife and directly in front of Tamarindo’s main break, you will find plenty of time for surfing and enjoying yourself around town. We have all the top amenities plus an oceanfront terrace restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a full supermarket on the first floor, and our surf shop right next door. These accommodations are not like your typical surf camp – we guarantee a comfortable night’s sleep to have you up and ready for surfing each day!
You will receive daily surf lessons based on the tide’s schedule (this is out of our control – Pura Vida!). One of these lessons will be held during a surf trip to another beach so you can try out your new skill on a new set of waves. You will even get a video analysis so we can show you what you are doing right and what needs work. You also get a photo shoot on the waves, a rash guard, daily breakfast, roundtrip airport transfer, unlimited board rentals, and discounts on all of Costa Rica’s top tours!
