My son and I just returned from 9 days with Witches Rock Surf Camp. We were in the intermediate group and our main instructor was Flash and sometimes Isaac. They were both great instructors in very different ways. Both very considerate with picking surf spots that suited the group and with offering really detailed instruction or leaving you alone if...

We did a father/daughter trip the week of 1/31/15 to 2/7/15. It's fun to see some of the other friends/guests and their reviews from that week. There was a really good feeling of family that week and that was a key benefit of the week. WRSC makes a surf experience in a foreign land EASY. That's the best way I... More

I arrived on Jan 31, 2015 and departed 2/7/15. Really did not want to leave. I was upgraded to a penthouse that could have housed a lot more people and I thoroughly enjoyed it; kitchen amenities, beautiful balcony and the best neighbors! The balcony became the place to meet for most of us for sunsets! This place is amazing...the instructors... More

I really can't say enough good about the trip. I was there from Feb7th-14th and traveled alone. I shared a room with two other guys I didn't know and by the end of the week we had all become great friends. There were about 12 or so of us that really got along well and hung out for the week....

This is the third time I’ve visited Guanacaste Costa Rica. The first trip was to Nosara in 2006 and Tamarindo in 2011 and 2015. The previous trips were adventure/surf trips. This time I went with my wife and two other couples so it was a little more relaxed. Witch’s Rock is a surf camp so each room is required to... More

I stayed at Witch's Rock back in November and am only writing this review now as I search for a comparable surf camp in Bali for a trip I'm taking this spring. Spoiler alert, there are none. If you're a solo traveler and beginner like myself, WR is ideal in terms of value, convenience, and surf. I stayed in one... More

I just celebrated my 35th birthday at WRSC with my 6 year old boy and a middle aged boyfriend who joined us on the last 3 days of our stay. My son and I flew in on a Saturday, so we ended up taking the shuttle to the camp, we waited 2 hours outside the airport until the rest of... More

I love instructors Jose and J. Luis. I had never surfed before. I was catching waves the first day! On day 4 we went to another beach and i was surfing on 5-7 foot waves. The instructors are awesome and soo good. They are professional surfers. Luis at the restaurant was great and so helpful. Oh and they had photographers... More

THE GOOD: If you are a beginner surfer like me, you will love the mellow breaks at Tamarindo, and during our stay there were even some 5-6 footers, which can be dangerous--see below. The ladies at the front desk are kind, professional and really try to help. They are 5 star people. The staff is really nice and give good... More

This was my second time taking lessons from them, last year I did the whole surf camp experience which was really great. We had lessons almost every day and had seminars in the evening including the history of surfing with Robert August! This time we didn't do the whole surf camp, but just did some walk-in lessons, as we weren't... More
