Had surf camp on my bucket list so as my 40th birthday approached I decided it was time to cross it off and I don't have a single regret for choosing Chica Brava to accomplish that task! I stayed at the surf house and it exceeded my expectations. Not only was it kept impeccably clean but the breakfast that was cooked for us every morning by the best house keeper ever was just to die for. Fresh magic juice concoctions, eggs, black beans, fruit...it was all fresh and delicious. The instructors we phenomenal!!!! I gotta give a shout out to Noe & Shelby! Those girls not only know how to surf but had the patience, energy and most importantly skill to take a 40 year old "girl" from WI and teach her how to surf. Got up on a green wave the first day. Pretty amazing! Besides their surf skills they know the town and were great at showing us around, taking us to some wonderful restaurants and a few of the hot spots in SJDS. The friends I made, the experience I had and the beauty I experienced at Chica Brava and in San Juan del Sur will never be forgotten. I have ever intention of going back. This is an experience you should not pass up. I highly recommend!!!
