Each point of familiarity and adventure were met. A highly skilled crew of trainees, hosts, technicians makes you feel a part of the bigger picture at once. The accomodations (rooms, breakfast timings, training schedules,...) naturally invite you to socialize with everyone. Individual time or group events, all is possible without any strings attached. The organization is highly aware of its carbon footprint, so no waste and no polluting elements. It's just paradise, and you have all the opportunities to enjoy it every second of your stay.
The garden of the pura vida lodge is a dream come true. It offers all facilities you need and is the beating heart of this place. Staff is super friendly and you won’t have to worry about anything. Check their website for interesting courses and workshop weeks!
I had an awesome stay here for one week. Met lots of nice people, the staff is great and the lodge is so awesome. Everything runs smoothly and breakfast is great as well! I would stay again and recommend it!
This was my first solo holiday trip and it surpassed expectations! Great facilitation; pick up & drop off at the airport, beach cruiser bike (including board rack), wetsuit, etc. We had daily yoga & surf classes and I was able to learn how to stand on a board in one week! They also thought us about how to read the waves etc. Very informative and fun holiday. You have a lot of options in activities but there is also space and understanding if you want to recharge alone a bit (in the nearby town, pool in the garden, hammocks and more). Will definitely be back another season and can only recommend!
The Logde is a wonderful place to stay, with a loving garden to relax or play games. The owners and the staff are super nice, helpful and funny. The surf lessons were really good and a lot of fun. We can fully recommend this place for a surf trip and a relaxing vacation!
Super nice place. Very friendly and helpful staff! You see that everything is done with a love for surfing 🌊 breakfast buffet is lovely and a lot of choices. Also if you have allergies or other demands... You get a lot of freedom to fill your days if you want. Easy to make friends. Stuff is being organised so you can easily follow the group or do you own thing. Also very good surf teachers who give personal advice since they work in small groups. Very nice feeling. They also come out whatever the weather circumstances are... Hats off to the team!
If you’re looking for a surftrip (beginner/intermediate) & want to get away from all your worries at home, Pura Vida Lodge is the place to be. It’s a little paradise with plenty of other things to do other than surfing, so if you decide that surfing is not your thing that’s not a problem. 🤙🌞
I really enjoyed my time here. The house and garden are lovely and the whole crew and surf teachers are super nice and motivated. You get a bike and really good surfing equipment. Great to go there with friends or solo.
Amazing place to stay with a lot of facilities. The breakfast is huge and delicious Staff always available for tips or everything else, the surf spot is amazing on a wild beach. A massive thank you to Tom, the surf instructor, so patient and dedicated to us !! Everything is well organized and settled so you can really envoy your stay at the lodge. Had a really great week, thank you so much 🤟🤟
Very chill week, nice and relaxing atmosphere. For breakfast there are a ton of (healthy) options and even the classic Dutch hagelslag. The lodge has an amazing garden with a lovely pool and hammocks. The crew is super friendly and always in for a chat. Would happily return!
