This women’s surf camp is hosted at the Funky Monkey Lodge in Santa Teresa. Nestled in the jungle and a two-minute walk to the beach, the Funky Monkey Lodge is a beautiful rustic privately owned hotel, with individual bungalows, a swimming pool for you to enjoy and a central restaurant where we gather for meals. You will love the sound of the howler monkeys in the trees, the sound of tropical birds when the sun rises, and the waves crashing in the distance.


Imagine waking up in the morning, a cup of gourmet Costa Rican coffee and some fresh fruit, a morning surf lesson, a relaxing lunch, a walk into town, an afternoon yoga class or sunset surf, an amazing healthy dinner, and then out for some local vibes and dancing to reggae music at the local night club.

Or how about a trip to the waterfalls, a snorkel tour to Isla Tortuga, a bonfire, ATV rides, speaking Spanish with the locals, a horseback ride on the beach or a relaxing afternoon in a hammock underneath the palm trees. Welcome to Chica Surf Adventures' surf camp!

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Tambor Airport (TMU). Transfer from the airport is included. Chica Surf Adventures will pick you up from the airport.

Arranging your travel to and from Costa Rica can be a little tricky. Once you have purchased you surf trip with Chica Surf Adventures, they will help you organize and coordinate your travel. The following information will help you schedule your arrival and departure.

You will more than likely need to allow one day of travel before your stay with Chica Surf Adventures. Your goal is to arrive at the San Jose (SJO) airport in Costa Rica before 12 p.m. on Sunday. This way, you can be sure to catch the last flight of the day from San Jose (SJO) to Tambor (TMU) which leaves at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Occasionally, there will be a 4 p.m. flight, depending on the season.

Most people will arrive in Santa Teresa ready for their vacation by late Sunday afternoon. ​If your international flight does not allow for you to connect to the last Tambor flight on Sunday, you will need to arrive on Saturday and catch a flight out the next morning.

For those of you who need to spend the night on Saturday in San Jose, Chica Surf Adventures will connect you with other surf camp travelers who need to do the same thing. If you must fly in on Saturday, you will spend the night in San Jose, and then catch the puddle jumper flight from San Jose (SJO) to Tambor (TMU) in the morning. Chica Surf Adventures will arrange for a taxi to pick you up from the Tambor Airport when you arrive on Sunday.

To return home, please schedule your international flights home on the following Sunday in the afternoon. You will need to allow enough time for you to catch an early morning puddle jumper flight from TMU back to SJO and still have a few hours prior to your flight for customs, checking in, etc. The 29 USD departure tax is payable at the international airport as you walk in to the right. It is required by all foreign passengers departing on international flights.

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 25% of the total price.
