Right near the best surf beach in town. Super excellent value for... More

REALLY AMAZING place, just in front of the main surf spot in Santa Teresa. The rooms are super comfortable, clean, very well equipped (hot water and air conditioning), and very safe. All rooms have balconies with hamaks and the most beautiful view on the jungle. The staff is really nice, welcoming and always willing to help. Rumbo surf is also... More

Great place to stay, the location is beautiful just by the beach. The staff was really helpful and friendly. Ask for the surfing lessons... I was a bit sceptical about my chances of standing on a board at the beginning... and by the end of the week I couldn't wait to get back to the sea and ride another wave.... More

If you wanna stay in Santa Teresa, do in Rumbo Surf Lodge. Its very clean place, the atmosphere relaxed and very good prices. A typical surfer hotel with the beach aroun the corner. In other words everything you need for a nice stay in Santa Teresa

So our plan was to stay at Rumbo Surf for a week and we ended up staying for two weeks! It is right across the street from one of the best surf breaks in Santa Teresa! We walked to shops, restaurants, and the beach. The accommodations were nice with a/c, a full kitchen, and great wifi. After staying there for... More

The location is great, as you are less than... More

It's my second time at Rumbo Surf, this time I got the Regular Surf Camp package and I'm very happy with the results. Nico is great and helped me a lot improving my surfing. The apartments are very confortable and next to the surf spot. I recommend it and hope to go back for the third as soon as possible!

My friend Jason has been going here for the last five years and I had the privileged to go down with him and learn to surf. I can say I had a time of my life. Niko and Mar the owners are amazing and I can truely say I made new friends. This is a place to stay and surf!

Clean and friendly. Nico, the owner/manager, was helpful, solving the few problems we came across in our three day stay. The rooms are basic but had everything we needed. Ask about the status of the construction project behind the house. For the price, I'd recommend it.
