Surf and Yoga Holiday Costa Rica

All difficulty levels
Maximum 15 participants
All meals included

A few years ago, Pura Vida Adventures celebrated a decade of Pura Vida Adventures with a weeklong surf camp fiesta over the Thanksgiving holiday. New and old friends, poolside parties, moonlit bonfires, sunset cocktails and, of course, tons of laughing, yoga, and surf—it was the best! What started as an anniversary party became a tradition when everyone decided it was such a magical week that they had to do it again. One excited alum dubbed the week “Surfsgiving” and it stuck…and it’s now one of the favorite camps! During this gratitude-filled week, they have planned a special Thanksgiving Day fiesta, Costa Rican style, plus the famous “paddle out for gratitude” session; paddle out, surf with friends, make new memories, now that’s Surfsgiving!

With an unbeatable view, tropical gardens, luxury amenities, and the warm hospitality of the “Pura Vida” culture, the surf and yoga retreat location offers everything you’d imagine from a Costa Rican vacation and more.

The exquisitely-designed accommodations are surrounded by abundant tropical gardens under an old forest canopy, giving you the feeling of landing in paradise. Comfortable furnishings, artistically-designed private bathroom, and beautiful teak wood floors leading to a private patio, combine modern comfort with local, tropical décor.

Imagine returning from an invigorating morning surf session, jumping into the crystal-clear swimming pool, and taking a blissful siesta in a giant hammock beneath the palm trees.

After a well-deserved rest, join your surf buddies for a tasty, nutritious lunch steps away at the restaurant, and treat yourself to a tropical cocktail prepared with love.

After bonding with your new pals, venture out to explore the tide pools or visit the spa for a massage. Before you know it, it’s time for sunset, and you’ve got the best seat in the house at the beachfront hotel.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO). Pura Vida Adventures recommends that you allow two hours between your international and domestic flights on both ends of your trip for customs, baggage claim, and ticketing. From the airport, there are two ways of getting to or from Santa Teresa: a domestic flight or a shuttle bus.

If you are looking to squeeze every ounce of vacation time in, they recommend booking a 30-minute puddle jumper flight on Sansa airlines (60 to 140 USD each way), leaving from the airport, and arriving in Tambor. Both Sansa and Green Airways depart right next door to the airport in the domestic terminal. These flights are part of the adventure and will start your trip off right with a beautiful flight over the Costa Rican jungle to the Nicoya Peninsula.

Arrival by shuttle

Pura Vida Adventures has partnered with Montezuma Expeditions to provide you with shuttle bus services to or from Santa Teresa. The shuttle bus leaves San Jose and Santa Teresa daily and will pick you up at the airport or your hotel. The price is 50 USD per person each way. The shuttle ride is an approximate six hours drive through Costa Rica’s picturesque countryside, including a 90-minute ferry ride on the Golfo de Nicoya.

Arrival by taxi

Once in Tambor, expect a one-hour taxi ride. Taxis cost approximately 60 USD each way for one to four people and 15 USD for each additional person. They will schedule a taxi to pick you up in Tambor, so look for a sign with your party’s name or the Pura Vida Adventures sign. There are a limited number of flights and seats to Tambor, so make your reservation early.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 25% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid on arrival.
