Kaitlin and Cesar provided a great, convenient experience including a fun time with an awesome guide, good accommodations and a solid board selection. I came down for a quick visit before Thanksgiving solo, and surfed for 4 days in Dominical with Cesar. Although this time of year isn't great for surf, I still scored some fun waves.

My booked lessons for 4 adults and 4 kids ages 11-14. Everyone was great to work with from booking to instructors. We had 1 instructor for every 2 people, so lots of attention. We actually loved it so much, we came back and did it again later in the week.

I highly recommend Costa Rica Surf Camp to learn how to surf. As a beginner I got an amazing good surf instructor (Gonzales). He is from Argentina but lives in Costa Rica now. He speaks English fluently and can give clear and concise instructions which helps me to get the most out of it. Also, he is creative in giving... More

Thank you so much for your review. Both you and your girls were awesome! It is so fun to teach the little ones to surf, and help them get over their fears and see them really enjoy themselves in the water! With children, safety is our number one priority! Hope to see you and your family back again soon. More

The instructors at Costa Rica Surf Camp are awesome, fun-loving people. The beginners lesson was a blast! Despite my severe lack of coordination, they helped me get on my feet. My family went back the next day and rented some boards from them to practice our skills. I would definitely recommend this surf shop.
