The first...

We had a fantastic time, my boyfriend enjoyed every minute of surfing and I could relax in the lovely hammock! Food is always fresh and tasty! It is a surfers paradise and holiday dream for non-surfer.

I tried stand up paddling there for the first time and it was an exciting experience. The surfcamp is beautifully decorated, I thought the art and...

First we thought staying at surfcamp guanico is quite convenient because it is located by the beach. However, when we got there, no one was ready to help us. We asked who was working here, literally 3 volunteers said they work here but they dont have time to show us the room. One guy said, we can go upstairs by...

First off, the location is amazing. I would go back in a second if it wasn't run by such an unpleasant guy. We had an amazing view from our balcony and it's right on the water. The cantina and local restaurant had good fish meals and cold beer. Tonosi is nearby (we had a vehicle) for daily beer and ice...

There's other surf camps. ...consider them. Dirty, owner shuts off power at night. No WiFi as advertised. The volunteers save what little could be saved to call this any type of resort. Wouldn't go back!
