The perfect family trip! We're definitely going back to Peaks n Swells! Our family has surfed in Hawaii and California but nothing has been comparable to this place- the beach house and the property, the surf breaks, the cool side trips we did everyday, even the amazing meals at the camp. Just when we thought we had been to the... More

We were lucky enough to be able to attend this Fall Surf Camp experience and a return trip is in definitely in the future. I highly recommend it. It's amazing to be able to leave the dreary Northern Hemisphere Fall weather and pop down to Costa Rica and jump in the warm ocean and get some Vitamin D. The coaches... More

Astonishing is the only word that comes to mind when remembering my week at Peaks N Swells surf camp. First - what anyone reading this is really interested it: the surfing.

The family surf camp was OUTSTANDING in every respect. Our kids, ages 6 & 8 are begging to go back next year. Every one in our family learned to surf-- in fact we were all up and riding waves the first day. The instruction we had from Chris Johnson allowed us to work at our own comfort levels, while at...

Surfing for a week at the Peaks and Swells surf camp is good for the body and soul. The setting is amazing with beautiful villas right on the beach and the relaxing sound of the ocean. Sitting on the front porch is like being on safari as colorful birds, iguanas, monkeys, congos, and little bijaguas roam around the yard. The... More

Finding quality surf and ample time to ride was priority at Peaks n Swells Surf Camp. The instructor was great! He was able to watch and determine each individuals starting point and build quickly on their needs. I have spent years working on my surfing and have been given pointers here and there but it wasn't til I went to... More

I had such a great time surfing! We went to three different breaks in the Montezuma area over the week long camp. We had an instructor with tones of experience who was a really good communicator. By the end I could catch waves and was starting to be able to turn and control the board. I can't believe how much... More
