I was alongside a previous reviewer at the group yoga retreat. The trip was amazing, and I definitely felt less touristy than I previously have in Costa Rica. Amazing surf lessons that definitely got me up on some of the biggest waves I've ever ridden (I'm still a beginner, so take that into account when you interpret that statement, haha). Not sure if they typically provide food for their groups, but they catered every meal for us, and I (as a super picky almost-vegan) ate like a champ. Some of the staff at Endless Olas became legitimate friends by the end of the trip. I've already recommended Endless Olas to several friends. I definitely want to go back and continue the adventure!

The surf lessons were really great. I went on a group yoga retreat which included Endless Olas picking us up at the airport, bringing us around Costa Rica for sightseeing, surf lessons, most of our meals, and dropping us back off at the airport. Be prepared for "tico time" aka very laid back scheduling. If you're type A like me, that takes some adjusting to get used to :) Luis and his team were awesome instructors and the pictures they got of us came out amazing!

Booking a surf camp with Endless Olas was the best decision. The staff made my stay unforgettable from my first email inquiry to my final drop-off. The customized package was great because I was able to plan my trip day-by-day and have a flexible schedule. I was the only person who booked the camp that week, so I had private surf lessons and transportation. I had a great combination of relaxation and fun, and I felt like I was staying with friends. The accommodation at Casa Tranquila lived up to its name; it was in a quiet location surrounded by nature and had a great hammock to relax on. I chose to have breakfasts included, and they were amazing. The only downfall is that there are not many places nearby to walk to, but private transportation was provided so it was not a big deal. My surf lessons were challenging and rewarding, and the instructors were great. All of the staff did everything they could to make sure I was having a good time and was well taken care of. I highly recommend this surf camp & I can't wait to go back!

This feedback is the most rewarding for us. Our goal with each person who comes to stay with us is to make the vacation a truly unforgettable experience from start to finish. This is why we make each trip so highly customized and why we spend so much time with each person who comes to stay with us. We love sharing our culture, habitat, nature and passion for surfing with everyone. This particular trip was especially rewarding as we had the opportunity to work with someone who had never surfed before to reach a point at the end of the trip where this person was catching amazing waves and showing off the new skills. Thank you for making your vacation with us!

The folks at Endless Olas made sure that my week in Costa Rica was worry-free, authentic, and customized. Everything from transportation to meals to activities were taken care of, with no strict schedule like other surf camps. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! It was like having your very own personal tour guide. The surf spots were not uncrowded, the instructions were clear, and they made sure we were happy customers! I highly recommend this place if you're overwhelmed by the option of surf camps in CR. I've been to two other surf camps (one in CR and one in Bali) and those were too cookie-cutter & restricting for my liking. The accommodations were a dream, surrounded by lush trees and even monkeys running around. Ditch the crowded resort areas and come stay in the jungle! Luis and his crew were so helpful and funny, too. I can't wait to go back!

Thanks for the great review! This is exactly what we are going for - a highly customized and authentic experience and one that reflects the fact that you are ON VACATION. We want our customers to partake in all the great adventures that Costa Rica has to offer but in a relaxed and laid back environment without a rigid schedule that would be reminiscent of your every day life.

Endless Olas Surf Camp made my trip to Costa Rica an unforgettable experience. The surfing, accommodations and above all else people, created an experience that was better than I could have imagined. - I have only ever tried surfing once before. My friend and I rented boards and just jumped into the ocean (unsuccessfully). This time, Endless Olas and their instructors from Manual Antonio Surf School were able to get me up on a board on day one! During 2 separate lessons I had the chance to work with 2 different instructors- they helped me get out over the breakers and guided me on when and how to get up on the board. This instant success made me feel great without making me so exhausted that I couldn't still enjoy my 'vacation'. The instructors were also the first to cheer each one of us on as we stood up on our boards and you could immediately sense their genuine interest in sharing their passion. One of my friends was much more experienced of a surfer and was able to receive instruction that matched her abilities. One night we were able to even view photos of ourselves surfing-with feedback as to how to improve. Even for a beginner this visual and conversation helped me on me second day. At the end of each day of surfing one of the instructors would appear with a tray of amazing pineapple smoothies as we sat around and watched the incredible sunset. - The Endless Olas accommodations are breathtaking. I loved being removed from all of the typical 'tourist' hotels. The house is literally surrounded by incredible plants, trees, flowers and plenty of monkeys who are as curious about you as you are they. The rooms were immaculate, and the outdoor kitchen and bar was perfect as we had delicious meals outside even in the midst of a rainstorm. During one lunch we were even served smoothies and appetizers right at the pool. Having transportation from the airport to the house, (as well as every other attraction we went to) was an asset that I hadn't realized would be as invaluable as it was. We didn't have to worry about transportation the entire time we were on our trip and not only surfed for multiple days, but also visited a National Park, a bar that seemed to be nestled in treetops, beach caves, beach massages, and hot springs. - None of these amazing experiences could compare to the hospitality of everyone we worked with. Jess was incredibly easy to work with via email as we planned our trip and made sure we were able to fit in all of the experiences we had hoped for. She and Luis provided recommendations once we were there and were incredibly knowledgeable about the area. The way in which they partner with many local small businesses allows you to really get to meet many locals and to learn more about the culture than you would through some of the larger tour companies. My review wouldn't be complete without mentioning Bryan. Bryan cooked the most amazing meals each day. He was careful to check for our food preferences or allergies and made meals that not only tasted amazing but looked as good as they tasted. His ability to give us surf instruction and then also act as a private tour guide when we went into the national park were great bonuses. By the end of the week I was truly sad to leave this place, it felt as if I had made a little family and I can't wait to book my next trip with Endless Olas!

This was the trip of a lifetime. I wouldn't have wanted to experience Costa Rica any other way. From the moment we arrived in the airport and met Luis and his team, I felt safe and comfortable. The accommodations we were brought to were wonderful with our own AC unit and two beds. The linens were changed every other day which was so nice. For our 6 day vacation with Endless Olas, we surfed every day but one. Sometimes twice a day. They took us to local, uncrowded spot which were the perfect spots to learn and improve our surfing skills. If they felt the waves were too big for us they would change our location to another, secluded location. Amazing. On our one day off, we did ziplining and yoga which we got transportation to and from. On occasion we also went out to local bars to eat and have a good time with Luis and his team. This was an amazing experience I will never forget and fully intend on returning. Thanks you so much to all who are apart of Endless Olas for making this the trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend them to experience the ultimate, authentic Costa Rican/Pura Vida vacation.

I wrote this review on the Manuel Antonio Surf School (MASS) TripAdvisor page, but now that Endless Olas Surf Camp has a page, I would like to add this here: From the minute we were picked up at the airport, Luis and his team at Endless Olas Surf Camp (with Manuel Antonio Surf School) did everything they could to make sure our first visit to Costa Rica was amazing and unforgettable. My cousin and I (both with some prior surfing experience) were looking for a unique way to visit Costa Rica. We found Endless Olas Surf Camp and booked the perfect trip. Thanks to Jess, we were able to customize our all inclusive, 6-day vacation to meet our interests and budget. Our trip included transportation to and from the airport, accommodations at the surf camp property, meals, a zipline excursion, a private yoga class, and several surfing sessions. Jess was very easy to coordinate with and answered all of our questions very quickly. The whole team was very welcoming and did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our vacation. We were lucky to be the only two staying at the camp that week. The accommodations were very comfortable and located in a beautiful, private area. The camp provided a chef just for us all week and he made the most amazing, professional, authentic Costa Rican meals. The food was incredible, thanks to Bryan. The surfing was the best!! We went to several different beaches throughout the week based on our skill level and they were very private with amazing waves. McKenna and Emily took pictures and videos of us surfing to send to us. The instructors (Luis, Bryan, Junior, and Elliot) were very friendly and made sure we felt safe and comfortable during each lesson. We were definitely able to improve our skills. On our day off, we chose to do ziplining and yoga. They set everything up for us and provided transportation. I HIGHLY recommend contacting MASS and Endless Olas Surf Camp to find out what they have to offer and to book the best surfing experience ever! THANK YOU to the whole Endless Olas Surf Camp team: Luis, Bryan, Junior, Elliot, Pipe, McKenna, Emily. We will definitely come back again soon. PURA VIDA!
