Travel to the warm, sunny, white sand beach of Playa Guiones where we provide our guests with daily step-by-step surf instruction for all experience levels. There you’ll discover an uncrowded, pure sandy bottom beach break with consistent glassy peaks. The water temperature stays around 80 degrees and offers ideal surfing conditions with a variety of waves and swell directions to suit any surfer, from beginner to advanced. We film each morning session from the shore and the water to help capture and improve individual progression. Guests will also take home a highlight reel of their surf lessons. And there’s no need to bring a board since we have nearly 100 to choose from!
Our surfing camp and ranch is ideally located in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica’s “gold coast.” It is situated on a privately owned half-acre of lush tropical land that rests just a quick 4 minute walk from the breathtaking shoreline of Playa Guiones and minutes away from the village of Nosara. The property consists of 6 well acquainted private bungalows, a lagoon style pool (open 24 hours), chaise lounges, outdoor showers, a jungle garden and an open-air dining area with TV and WiFi.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner meals are freshly prepared each day with Costa Rican coffees, juices and beers and are included in your stay.
When it’s time to take a break from surfing, soak up the local culture with plenty of nearby entertainment options that will surely appeal to everyone in your group. Enjoy a relaxing day in the village with an array of fantastic restaurants, retail shops, local arts & crafts on display and some of the top rated yoga studios in the country. Tennis, mini-golf, a skatepark and the world’s largest Olive Ridley turtle nesting site (located near Nosara at the Ostional Wildlife Refuge) offer fun, family-friendly options. For the more adventurous travelers, explore all that Costa Rica has to offer with paddleboarding, legendary sportfishing, turtle watching, horseback riding, zip lining, and quad rentals!
Our in-house cooks prepare delicious family style cuisine in our state of the art kitchen, using only the freshest ingredients of the highest quality. Traditional meals including rice, beans, local fish, meats and produce provide guests with a variety of enticing options. Freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee and fresh juices are served with breakfast. “Bocas” (appetizers) are provided after sunset with a selection of local Costa Rican juices and beers. Local organic cafes and restaurants provide expanded dining options to visitors.
Winter is approaching in California but it’s summertime right now in Costa Rica! Put your parkas down and grab a bathing suit because the sun is shining, the water is warm and the waves are breaking. Daytime temperatures stay in the mid to high 80’s with nighttime hovering around the cozy mid 70’s. The beauty and warmth of this tropical paradise remains throughout the day with stunning sunsets and an exotic backdrop.
Located just a couple miles inland from the sea and still somewhat undeveloped, it’s no surprise that the small beach town of Nosara is one of the most popular in Costa Rica. The village has become well known for its endless yoga options, exotic beaches and amazing surf. The primary spoken language is Spanish, although Nosara’s community is a multicultural mix of locals and expats, many arriving from America, Canada, and Europe. With plenty to see and do, there’s never a shortage of entertainment in this town.
Our 2nd generation family business has hosted guests for over 20 years and whether you’re planning a family vacation, romantic getaway, or epic Costa Rica surfing trip, we combine hospitality and the perfect location to help make the most of out of your holiday getaway!
