I could not have imagined a more amazing trip for my son and I! As a single parent with a 3 year old, I would not have been able to do a surf camp; focus on my surfing and know that my son was in excellent hands (eating all the muffins mind you;). I was blown away by the delicious... More

I normally would not be the one to go to a "surf camp", as I generally like to get away from people when I travel for surf and explore the place I am going. My experience at Peaks and Swells, changed that idea for me. This place was amazing, one of the most consistent places there is to surf. Left... More

They say Costa Rica has the most consistent surf in the world and I was rewarded with surf everyday for a month minus 3 days during the month of April. Hillary and the crew of Peaks N Swells offers up a memorable locals experience of rustic Montezuma, Costa Rica and the surrounding surf for individuals and families of any shape... More

My trip to peaks n swells blew me away. An unbelieveable experience that would be hard to duplicate anywhere else in the world. I went for the surf coaching which a friend had told me was like no other camp- and they were right. I can't believe how much the video analysis helped improve my surfing so fast- things I... More

Not only are the accommodations beautiful, serene, and relaxing, the staff is beyond attentive and great fun! The food was delicious, with tropical variety, the rooms were very comfortable with simplistic elegance, and the surf coaches were all ready to teach you to be on the fast track of surfing! Wether you are going to Costa Rica to relax, to... More

Maybe the best thing I can say about Peaks N Swells is that we chose to go back this year for another week of family surf camp, and it was even better than year one (which was amazing!). All of the reviews site top-notch surf instruction with Chris Johnson, and this year he was joined by Martin who provided a... More

I can't recommend Peaks 'n Swells more highly. My family and I were in search of an alternative to our usual winter ski/snowboard trip, and wanted something just as fun, relaxing, and enjoyable. Having spent a week at Peaks 'n Swells, we now can't wait to get back there! The entire experience was a special one - personalized surf, yoga,... More

We recently returned from a week at Peaks n' Swells and can't say enough good things about the experience. Fantastic food, excellent instruction - all in a beautiful and lush setting. By the end of the week, given the boutique nature of the camp, every person on staff - Hillary, Karen, Chitsa, Darwin, Josie, Lorraine, Vas - felt like family.... More
