I just returned from my trip there about a week ago and am already trying to figure out when I can return. The staff is amazing!!!!! You feel like you are part of their family. They prepare the most delicious breakfasts and coordinate all activities. In addition, they accompany you to dinner. It's a great way to submerge yourself in... More

Just got back from a wonderful family vacation at Vista Guapa, Costa Rica. As others noted, our room on top of the hill overlooking Jaco and the Pacific was clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts were tasty and filled us up for the day's adventure. What really stood out for me was the staff. Not only were they extremely knowledgeable... More

I have just returned after my 4th visit to Vista Guapa Surf Camp since Nov 2012. I can report I am still smiling! Alvaro is a Master! I am so happy I started to surf with Alvaro.

I had a great experience at Vista Guapa. All of the staff were extremely friendly and professional. The breakfast every morning was incredible, and we were taken out to dinner every night. The bungalows are neat, comfortable, and cleaned daily. Alavaro and Wendy went out of there way to make our stay one to remember. We surfed every afternoon and... More

I believe I was either the first or second visitor to Vista Guapa back in 2002. I was a little anxious about visiting Costa Rica for the first time, but I wound up having a fantastic time. Alvaro took very good care of me and my two friends during our visit. I really enjoyed my surfing lessons with Alvaro and... More
