Stay less than 100 steps from the most consistent beach break in Central America in a two-bedroom and one-bath fully furnished bungalow. Each bungalow has a fully functional kitchen, air-conditioning in every room, cable television, internet, and a massive balcony.

With hundreds of miles of uncrowded surf and varied coastline, it's no secret that Costa Rica is the surf destination of Central America. HSV Surf Camp is centrally located on the sand in the Central Pacific region at the most active and consistent wave in Costa Rica. The two-bedroom private bungalows are steps away from the famous Almendro Tree at Playa Hermosa, offering miles of empty beach break peaks to choose from in either direction.

While most days right out front are for the intermediate to the experienced surfer, the inside section closer to shore will be less challenging for beginners. Other breaks within five minutes drives can safely accommodate the less experienced surfer too. With the help of a surf guide and a little local knowledge, they can get you at the comfort level you desire.

For those looking to be more adventurous, many other world-class tropical breaks are within a 30-minute drive or boat ride. Whether you are looking for a barreling reef, juicy beach break peaks, or long, mushy point break waves, they can get you there. They have all the knowledge of where to go and when, what spot works on what direction swell, and which tide is best for each location.

Board Rentals are Available at HSV Surf Camp. Whether you are a shortboarder or longboarder, and regardless of your skill level our staff will put you in the type of surf you want.

If you are unable to bring your own boards or unwilling to pay the ransom demanded of the airlines these days, they have a variety of boards to choose from, from 510 super wide epoxy retro fish twin-fins to many high-performance shortboards between 61 and 69. They even have several 96 longboards and soft-top longboards which are much more forgiving to those who are just learning to surf.

Daily surf charters

Surf boat charters are available for those hard to reach spots when the waves are firing. From unknown reefs to named breaks, we can get to spots that require a boat every day of the week. Cold drinks, beer, and snacks are provided on each half-day charter. They can even arrange a photographer to sit in the channel and take snapshots of you carving up waves if you like. Nothing better than documenting the time of your life!

Surf lessons

At HSV Surf Camp, they have the instructors with both knowledge and patience to get you surfing in no time. All instructors have decades of local and international surf experience so you will be learning from the best! Surf lessons include:

  • Board rental for the day
  • Rash guard

  • Review by Gunnar from Maryland, USA

    "Really enjoyed our stay. Took my son and his buddy for a surf week in Playa Hermosa. I was already in CR fishing in a tournament in Los Suenos when the boys arrived. Brian Engstrom the on sight manager made sure everything went smoothly with their transfer from the airport and getting set up in the Bungalow before my arrival. He was easily accessible and gave us great advice on other tours, restaurants and surf breaks. The accommodations were perfect for the three of us. No problems sleeping. Would recommend a vehicle. Great time! Felt Safe! Highly recommend! Stayed January 2015, travelled with family.."

    "We rented a bungalow for a week in Hemosa and Brian helped us arrange horseback riding and ATV tours. He also rented surfing boards. So helpful and convenient to have him on-site. Thanks Brian for all the help! Stayed December 2014, travelled with family."

    "First, Brian arranged for us to be picked up at the airport as pre-arranged, the guy that picked us up was on-time and waited for us as the plane was late. He did not mind and was super nice. He even stopped by a store on the way to Hermosa. He came in and made sure that we were taken care of and translated for us. Kevin with Kevin's transfers was awesome.The house was spotless and on the beach front #3. Yes, the bed in the master is a little hard .but enough rum and you can sleep through anything. Highly recommend this location and this company."

    "We stayed for a week in #3 and had a great vacation. The beach across the street was uncrowded and had great waves. The bungalow had everything we needed and accomodated our family of 4 just fine. Onsite managers Brian and Laura were super friendly and very helpful in arranging tours with reputable companies.The only negative was that we found the beds a bit hard, and you definitely need a car for getting to Jaco or for going out to eat or to the store. We recommend using Zuma car rental out of Jaco as they will provide airport transportation, which was a tremendous help. It was an overall great family vacation and we would stay there again."

    "This was our third trip to Playa Hermosa and the bungalows. We obviously really enjoy it here."

    "We brought our grandson with us and he had a marvelous time. Thanks to one of Brian's boogie boards he also has a new skill! Brian and Laura are wonderful advisors on activities (be it surfing or otherwise). The bungalows offer just the right amount of amenities and warm atmosphere. We have met some lifelong friends while staying here!"
