The beach at Playa Grande is the permanent nesting site for leatherback turtles. It provides a safe landing vital to the endangered leatherback turtle. Female leatherbacks come ashore during the nights in October to May to lay their eggs in the sand. They then cover the eggs and return to the ocean. The eco-friendly Costa Rican government has gone to great lengths to protect the habitat of these amazing animals. This has allowed Playa Grande to remain a sanctuary for both the turtles and surfers alike, and surfers from all over the world have christened Playa Grande as home of some of Costa Rica’s best waves.

The waves on Playa Grande Beach offer a premium spot for intermediate surfers and the inside section allows Playa Grande Surf Camp to teach beginners how to surf in the safety of the white water. For advanced surfers, a short walk down the beach takes you to the main surf break which is one of the premium surfing waves in Playa Grande.

    "I had a terrific stay at Playa Grande Surf Camp. It wouldn't have been the same without Justen at the Playa Grande Surf Camp helping us navigate the area and plan our days. Cafe Mar, which is a part of Playa Grande Surf Camp, has a wonderful menu where Lindsey makes everything fresh and organic. And if you are going to Playa Grande, you most definitely have to request a surfing lesson from Vidier at Playa Grande Surf Camp. I have a wonderful stay there and we will be going again."

A huge thanks to Justen for arranging all of our magical adventures. Vidy, our surf instructor, was absolutely brilliant. Dining at the camp was superb. We will without a doubt be back soon. Pura vida!"

    "What an awesome trip! Big ups to Justen, who was super helpful in coordinating day excursions (horseback riding on the beach, zip lining, ATV tours, etc) and to Vidy, my surf instructor, who had me up surfing in one lesson and actually enjoying it by number two. Will definitely visit again soon!"
