Life’s Good in Costa Rica
Costa Rica is a beautiful country that boasts breathtaking beaches, fantasic food, colourful culture and incredible surf on both the Carribean and Pacific Coast. Traveling from coast to coast is a magical experience.
Pura Vida is all about spreading love; love to the land, the ocean, your environment, yourself, the people and sums up this, beautiful, proud and passionate paradise perfectly.
Costa Rica is one of the most consistent surf zones on the planet with beach breaks, point breaks and reef breaks a plenty on both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.
Riders are taught everything from the basics of surfing technique, water safety and surfing etiquette, through to high performance manoeuvre analysis and competitive surf strategy.
Having travelled the length and breadth of Costa Rica looking for the perfect Ticket to Ride set-up, we've truly spoiled ourselves by settling down in the Rastafarian surf town of Puerto Viejo on the Carribean Coast and the sleepy surf town Santa Teresa in Nicoya Peninsula next to the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve.
The schedule is loose and the days can go from super active to super relaxed without notice. You soon get the hang of relaxing to max...
With this in mind and having operated surf camps and tours in Costa
Rica for many years, we know that being in the right accommodation is absolutely
key to making the most of your time in this tropical wonderland.
In the Rasta town of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean Coast, we will have private comfortable clean hostel rooms in the centre of town. Everything here is big and beautiful; the rainforest, wildlife, wide-open beaches and your daily itinerary will revolve around yoga, surfing and snoozing. So if you want to chill a little. Party a little. Eat a little. You’re in Paradise.
In Santa Teresa on the Pacific Coast we have two private apartments and a cabana at Don Jon’s Surf Lodge, where the motto is “relax to the max” and relax you will. There are plenty of hammocks all over the place for a quick nap, ten beds over two private apartments and three beds in one cabana, for a proper night’s sleep. The daily routine of strolling through 50m of pristine Costa Rican jungle to reach the waves makes you feel like you’re in a surf movie!
Our Costa Rica Surf Camps include five yoga sessions per week led by experienced yoga instructors and is the perfect way to stretch out and unwind after a surf. Flexibility and core strength developed through yoga is also hugely beneficial to your overall surfing performance.
Deep Sea Fishing Santa Teresa has some of the best fishing in the World. Possible catches include the mighty sailfish and marlin if you’re lucky, but the most likely fish of the day would be tuna, dorado, wahoo, roosterfish, snapper and baracuda. Having spent the day out on the boat, we'll eat like kings at night by landing our catch straight on the bbq.
Costa Rica’s tropical reputation is not confined to the land as the outer reefs provide sanctuaries for incredible sea life. Spend the day cruising around, hopping on and off the boat armed with a trusty pair of flippers, snorkel and mask to see the underwater sights
To get an idea of the amazing biodiversity on offer, just spend a day swinging through the trees on a harness. Incredible just doesn't quite cut it.
Hike up the beautiful Montezuma Waterfall, bathe and swim in the natural pool, visit the Butterfly farm on the walk back and top the day off with a locally brewed ale at the Butterfly Farm's Brewery!
The Sloth Sanctuary Visit is great fun. Located a nice cycle distance away, we will get on our bikes and go visit some Caribbean wildlife.
