Playa Grande Surf Camp is located in the northern Costa Rican province of Guanacaste in the heart of a Costa Rican Nature Preserve, Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas de Guanacaste. The nature preserve is a permanent nesting site for leatherback turtles which provides a safe landing vital to those endangered animals. 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 a home of some of Costa Rica’s best beaches, which is a pristine stretch of white sand on the Pacific Ocean.

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.
