I came to PGSC with one purpose and that was to surf. I just wanted somewhere close to the beach with no hassle. Well, I found perfection. The owner was laid back and cool, there was an impressive quiver of boards to choose from and the prices were great. He has a maid come every day so the place was super clean.
There was always a cool group of people to talk to and you could pretty much come and go as you please. The best part was that all you have to do is throw a board under your arm and walk a few paces to the beach. I had a great time and always felt like I was part of a family of travelers.
Also it's close to the restaurants in the area and just a beach walk away from Tamarindo. It's a way more chill and authentic place to stay if you don't want to be right in the middle of the tourism of Tamarindo.
