The place is absolutely amazing! Red Aras were flying above our heads every 5 minutes. We also saw monkeys, dolphins, iguanas... the sunsets and sunrises were so pretty every time, and Dian's food is to die for! All the meals were very tasty and there were vegetarian/vegan options. The surf coaches are very patient and encouraging. Collin, the surf instructor, never gave up on me although it took me a few days to stand properly on the board. He was kind of a life coach : always encouraging and positive. I would recommend him to anyone! Sebastien, the camp owner, also makes sure you enjoy your experience and catch waves every day. He was very patient and helpful. The boat trip is also a must! Everybody was super nice. If you stay in Finca Escalante in San José, someone can call a cab for you to go to the bus station. They will also offer you the shuttle option for 25-30$. Make sure you check your emails. The only thing is that I received the trip confirmation 3 weeks before departure even though I had booked it several months before. Consequently, the plane tickets were more expensive than I anticipated so keep that in mind budget-wise !

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review Annie. It was a real pleasure to meet you, teach you surfing, share some amazing meals and spend this time together (especially during the boat trip at the secret spot where we jumped from the boat to a perfect wave just for us...!) We truly apologize for having confirmed your trip last minute. This is not something that is habitual, as most of our trips usually fills up and get confirmed 60-120 days in advance. While it is true that the limit date for us to confirm a trip is 21 days before departure, it is because in some very rare occasions we are missing only 1 person to be able to cover our operating costs and to make your vacation possible. We think this is a better option than cancelling the trip. We always try to propose confirmed dates to our travellers if they are flexible with their travel date but sometimes it is not the case due to work or vacation like it was this time for you. On the positive side, the group was small which meant 2 coaches for only 5 people for the whole week, which made everybody progress faster and get way more waves each than with a larger group or coach/student ratio. We're very sorry you had to spend extra for your flights and would like to offer you a $200 discount on your next trip with us. Kind Regards,

I highly recommend staying at Surf Expedition Camp in Pavones for a week to surf and practice Yoga. The place is amazing, 100% Pura Vida surrounded by Costa Rican Jungle and over a beautiful beach. Accommodations are in perfect conditions and everything is neat and clean. Surf lessons by coach Seb Langelier and his team are first class. The food is amazing. Dian is a top rated international chef and prepares the most exquisite meals with lots of love. I can't wait to go back!!

I could not recommend this experience more! Surf, yoga, food, people and nature- all elements come together into an unforgettable experience. The people of Surf Expedition have thought of everything and the incredible Costa Rican coastline does the rest. Having never surfed before, I highly appreciated what felt like one on one surf coaching. I would do it again and again!
