They say Costa Rica has the most consistent surf in the world and I was rewarded with surf everyday for a month minus 3 days during the month of April. Hillary and the crew of Peaks N Swells offers up a memorable locals experience of rustic Montezuma, Costa Rica and the surrounding surf for individuals and families of any shape and size.
As far as surf experiences go, they have it all...beach breaks and point breaks and rights and lefts for all skill levels. This kept me smiling and progressing with the help of technical surf coaching from 3 excellent teachers, including video analysis (best teaching tool ever to see yourself surfing!!Thanx M&G)
The accommodations are 3 unique buildings on an idyllic property with the ocean as your front yard and the jungle as your backyard and a pool in the middle to cool off from the heat of the mid day sun. Fresh coconut water everyday!!!!!!!! April/May was mango season and cashew season and my favorite part of the day was picking ripe fruit off the trees for smoothies and other delicious creations. The town is only 10 min down the beach from the property and offers great restaurant selection and a few bars for evening entertainment and even live music.
A variety of Yoga instructors kept everyone energized and ready to surf dawn patrol the next day. Group dinners were a treat with a variety of local chefs that made everything from scratch with fresh local ingredients that kept you dreaming of your next meal (like every man I think with my stomach).
My solo experience included other families with kids and everyone was looked after, in and out of the water. And everyone had fun everyday.
Could go on but the overall experience is a 9 out of 10 for an adventure surf holiday.
If you have not been to Costa Rica....this is a great non-touristy way to experience the coast.
