This surf camp will take place in Playa Dominical, Costa Rica. Dominical is located in the Southern Pacific part of Costa Rica and is the northernmost town in the Costa Ballena. Dominical is located about 40 minutes south of Manual Antonio or Quepos and 45 minutes west of San Isidro del General.

Playa Dominical is a small but fast growing surfing town with some of the most consistent (and powerful) waves in Costa Rica. There is so much to do besides surfing in Dominical. The landscape is lush, tropical mountains that crash down into palm tree lined beaches.

There is wildlife everywhere: in the rivers, mangroves, mountains, beaches, and in the ocean. Every year, the whales from the North and the South come and mate and have their babies in the warm tropical waters. This area of Costa Rica is still beautiful and fairly untouched.

    "This was a delightful trip - overall almost four hours. We saw boas, monkeys, and wonderful birds during the kayaking portion of the trip as well as learning about the area. Then, in the truck on the way back, we stopped and observed four different sloths in their trees. The guides took time to explain everything and worked to find animals and birds to show us. At the end of the kayak tour, they served excellent fresh fruit while a white faced capuchin monkey in a nearby tree watched us eat. We all had a wonderful time and agreed that when we return to Costa Rica next year that we would want to do the kayak tour with Pineapple tours again. One more thing - one of the guides took digital pictures of us and the wildlife on our trip and then emailed the pictures to us. There was no charge for this."

    "We took the 7 a.m. kayak tour through the mangroves with Victor as our guide. He is a knowledgeable local and made the paddle thru the mangroves interesting and informative! We were lucky enough to see white-faced monkeys swinging and jumping on the trees, lots of birds and a sloth up on the tree! He even took us to a quiet area in he mangrove to meditate and reflect at the end. We loved the experience! Rachel was very helpful setting up the tour. Great spread of local fruit at the end of the tour too!"

    "I went on the mangrove tour with two guides from Pineapple Tours. They worked very well together and made for an easy and seamless transition from the shop in Dominical to the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out a variety of species of bird, crab and iguanas. He even spotted a hummingbird nest with 2 chicks. The tour was unforgettable and I would recommend Pineapple Tours to anyone."

    "It was a fantastic kayaking trip with Pineapple Tours! My students and I had a wonderful time exploring the mangroves and seeing unique biodiversity along the beautiful coastline of Dominical. The guides were extremely friendly and professional, and did a wonderful job coordinating a fun and safe kayaking experience in Costa Rica. I have used other companies in the past but Pineapple Tours clearly provides the best experience. Thank you for the wonderful time!"
