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

I have stayed at Rumbo three times in the past 18 months, and am returning in a couple of weeks. The owner is great, and is always more than willing give his reccomendation on restaurants, bars, places to surf, etc. The cabinas have everything you need, and are kept very clean. 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.

We stayed at Rumbo Surf Lodge for 10 days in January-February 2012. Two families with, in between us, 5 kids aged 1-6 yrs, and we had the whole house (2 apartement, one on each floor). The apartments are great, clean, comfortable, with A/C, big balcony/porch plus a little garden. Just outside the main township of Santa Teresa, nice and quiet... More

Spent one month here with my girlfriend from the 22nd of November to the 22nd of December 2011. The air-conditioned apartment is beautiful and really comfy, ours had one large comfortable double bed and a sleeper couch. The apartment is really comfortable for two people, would probably be a little tight for four people, but still feasible. The kitchen is... More

This was a beautiful apartment to stay at. Everything was very clean the location was nice and quite. We were right across the street from the beach and a great surf spot. This location is about a 5 minute walk from the main town area where all the shops were, which was great since there wasn't always a crowd walking... More

My husband and I stayed at Rumbo Surf for a month in May - June 2010. The apartment we had was new and comfortably furnished (with A/C). There is a porch with a hammock and some chairs, if you want to spend time outside of the appartment. The location is on the north end of Santa Teresa, which is quiet... More
