Costa Rica

Life’s Good in Costa Rica

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a beautiful country that boasts breathtaking beaches, fantastic food, colourful culture and incredible surf coming from the balmy Pacific Ocean. Visiting this magical place is an experience of a lifetime.

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 the Pacific coast!

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. 

The Ticket to Ride surf camps are located in the sleepy surf town Santa Teresa in Nicoya Peninsula next to the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve.

Trip Stops & Accommodation

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 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! 

Other Activities

Yoga 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.

Snorkeling 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.

Canopy Tour 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.

Waterfall Hike & Butterfly Farm Visit 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!
