I spent a week at Kalon and I am disappointed to write that it did not meet my expectations, nor would I recommend this trip to anyone, especially for the price. These are the quick facts. - There is no air conditioning. - The house is located 25 minutes from the beach. That means ~1hr in the car each day.... More

This place is awesome! The people here are awesome! Did not want to leave. By the time your stay here is at an end, you will have the confidence to stand up on a surf board for the rest of your life. Oh and the waterfall near by was amazing! Best trip ever!

Several years ago, I decided I wanted a surf vacation, so I looked at some websites and wrote a few emails. The first (and fastest) reply came from Marcela at Kalon Surf. That level of service and professionalism is one of many reasons I've visited Kalon six times now. Each time I come back, I can count on two things.... More

We landed an hour late into San Jose but the airport was easy to navigate. Roberto was waiting for us with a couple other guests. He loaded us up in the Kalon Toyota Land Cruiser Prada which is a very comfortable and well maintained vehicle. The drive was as advertised between 2 ½ and 3 hours and was a nice... More

This Place and all the staff and owners are top notch. It takes a lot of work, effort and energy to bring the perfect surf trip to us and you. Having just done a week here made me realize what a bargain it really is. It only seems expensive until you go through it. You are treated like a friend... More

I always dreamed of a place like this but honestly never thought it existed until now. I joined 7 other women- all of us looking for an adventure and a bit of pampering. What we got was WAY more. Everything at Kalon is planned to perfection with our needs and wants always in mind. I've been to resorts all around... More

If you want to step back and focus on dialing up your surfing skills with hands on support Kalon is the place to go. There are plenty of surf camps in Costa Rica but these guys are at the upper end of the spectrum for a number of reasons. (1) Hands on tuition. We were a small group but everyone... More

This family vacation was so incredible we are already trying to plan a second visit to bring friends. First and foremost, the owners and staff members are incredibly friendly and accommodating. They all went above and beyond to make our vacation fun and stress-free. I can honestly say you can arrive with your bathing suit, flips flops, pajamas and toothbrush... More

Everything about this vacation was perfect. The surfing was terrific, and we both advanced tremendously. The food was out of this world, like going to a five-star restaurant in quality and presentation for every meal. Most of all, we could relax when we wanted to.
