Surf lesson

Professional certified surf instructors will teach you how to do your first pop up and even how to catch your own waves. Lessons are designed for all levels of surfing, beginner through advanced. The staff will create a safe and fun environment for you to learn to surf in and practice the skilled you've gained. The surf lessons have two or three students per surf instructor.

You will be taking your skills to the next level every day. The instructors will be teaching you not only basic skills, but surf etiquette, water safety, paddling techniques, how to read waves, and how to improve your skills for those of you who have surf experience already. Feel free to bring your own board from home but there are many boards available for you to choose from. When you are not scheduled for a surf lesson, you can grab a board anytime and go practice.

Yoga classes

The beauty of adding yoga classes to a surf retreat is that it allows us to stretch and condition the muscles you are working on throughout the week. Experience an all levels Shakti flow class at Pranamar Villas, yoga inspired hotel in Playa Hermosa, and find the yogi within. All yoga classes are held in open air studios; hear the waves, birds, and jungle noises as you calm your senses.

Add on additional yoga classes and try a variety of classes available around town like Hatha Flow, Kundalini, even Yin Yoga. Set your mind free and do some sun salutations on the beach at sunrise or sunset.

Zip line and waterfall tour

Zoom above the Costa Rican forest on the Montezuma Canopy Tour. The canopy consists of nine cables and 13 platforms for you to enjoy epic views and see a number of plants and animals unique to Costa Rica. As a part of the tour, you will get to hike down to the famous Montezuma Waterfalls and jump into the cascading waters and fresh water swimming pool. Maybe even take a try at the rope swing. This exhilarating experience you won't want to miss!

This surf camp takes place in Costa Rica.

Start your day with a healthy breakfast, including fresh fruit and coffee home grown in Costa Rica. You will be sure to work up an appetite after a day of surf lessons and adventures.

    "I love the location. It is so amazing when you can walk outside your door and there are monkeys in the trees and birds singing with the sound of waves breaking in the background. The beaches are beautiful and the water is SO warm you can run right in."

    "Thank you so much for such a fantastic trip. It was the adventure of a lifetime. I never really expected to be able to surf after only one week. What an amazing feeling to catch a wave and ride it into the shore. I can't wait to do it again soon."

    "Chica Surf Adventures was the best trip I've ever taken! I chose to do the women's surf camp in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Amanda did a great job planning out our itinerary, and playing host to our group of Chicas for a week. All of the surf instructors and hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. I'm really glad I chose to do this as my first trip traveling solo outside of the country. By the end of the trip, you'll be so pumped up with surf stoke, you'll wish you had an extra week."

    "Chica Surf Adventures is an amazing experience! I was so impressed with how chill the week was but at the same time how well organized it was. You can really tell that the owner, Amanda cares about each and every one of her guests. She really puts a tremendous amount of thought and effort into each day. You do so many awesome things but at the same time you have enough downtime to relax, enjoy your accommodations and get a few hammock naps in :) The surf instructors were amazing and so knowledgeable. I definitely improved my surfing skills over the week. I also can't talk highly enough about the included meals. The chefs at Funky Moneky were so talented. The dinners were some of the best dinners I have ever had-seriously! I would love to come back or try one of the other locations Surf Chica offers. I highly recommend this camp!"
