“Amazing and Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

This trip I made to Peaks ‘n Swells was amazing. It was able to provide me with the best surf instructor around, super friendly hospitality, relaxation, and fresh food every day. My favourite was having a nice cold fresh coconut drink right after a long surf session. I really felt I got an authentic Costa Rica experience. The accommodations were absolutely stellar and would come back to this surf camp in a second.

“Best vacation ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have to say that this was one of the best vacations I have ever had. Hillary, Ryan and Karen are an amazing family and make you feel like you are part of it when you visit. The rooms were clean and simple and very comfortable- in a beautiful setting right on the beach with sea turtle babies to boot! The town of Montezuma is great too- only a 5 minute walk away. The food was incredibly yummy and healthy. My favorite of course was learning to surf- the instructors were top notch and I felt like I was given the right information in the right order at the right time. LOVED it and can't wait to surf again. Daily yoga on top of it all - can't beat it. Karen takes the most amazing pictures too. I went on the trip with 6 friends but intend to return with my family as soon as I can- I know they would love it. Wish I was still there and am counting the weeks until I can return. Thank you all for a great experience.

“Hands Down on of the best Vacations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

I had never surfed before and was not sure what to expect on this vacation. However, I had the most amazing trip. Every detail was taken care of these was not one thing I needed to think about except for bathing suit sunscreen and rash guard. The surf instructors were wonderful they were knowledgable, encouraging and all around great teachers. The accommodations were beautiful like a little bit of paradise. The food was healthy and delicious! Thanks to Hillary, Ryan, Gem, Karen, and Martin.

“An amazing surf camp for families!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

I could not have imagined a more amazing trip for my son and I! As a single parent with a 3 year old, I would not have been able to do a surf camp; focus on my surfing and know that my son was in excellent hands (eating all the muffins mind you;). I was blown away by the delicious fresh and healthy food, the professional surf instruction, and the overall beauty of costa rica! The location of the camp is conveniently located near some great surf breaks! Plus, the professional pictures remind me everyday of the amazing trip!!

“One of my best surf Trips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

I normally would not be the one to go to a "surf camp", as I generally like to get away from people when I travel for surf and explore the place I am going. My experience at Peaks and Swells, changed that idea for me. This place was amazing, one of the most consistent places there is to surf. Left and Right Points, Beachbreaks. The surfing was good everyday we were there. Not to mention, the insane location, the accomadations are super rad, nice pool and the food was amazing. If I brought home two things it was the food and the surfing. Hillary and the crew at Peaks killed it and I would no doubt do another surf camp with these guys.

Thanks for the fun week!
