Accommodation

Pura Vida Lodge is equipped with a huge common relax-garden with a nice heated private swimming pool. With a small maximum capacity of guests, you will certainly be able to find peace. In their lounge area, they have nice comfortable sofas in a unique surf decor. They create a super relaxed atmosphere and function as an ideal place to share time with others or enjoy your own space and rest. A library and board games keep the boredom at bay.

In the garden area, their south facing-sun terrace with swimming pool is equipped with lounge beds, garden furniture, and an outside solar shower. During this surf camp, you can stay in a shared room or a double room with your friend. Please send Pura Vida Lodge an inquiry if you wish to stay in a single room. Retreat from the midday sun and chill out in the garden, in a hammock, or with a book in the loveseats.

Program

In the morning, you will wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread. Now you have choices whether you will go for your first surf session, join a daily yoga lesson, or turn around one last time before you sit down for your lovely, healthy breakfast. With the other guests, you can enjoy eating breakfast in the sun. In the meantime, your surf instructor will arrive and let everyone know that the surf conditions are at its best.

After the breakfast, you will grab the wetsuit that belongs to you for the whole week from the rack and attach your surfboard onto the beach cruiser with board rack. After 5 minutes of cycling, you will reach the beach and see the waves of the Atlantic Ocean rolling in. You are ready to surf.

After a warming-up with the whole group, you'll get into the water. Your surf teacher will give you instructions and you'll notice that your surfing skill gets better. After 1 hour, the lesson will be over and your body will feel tired. You will do sunbathing on the beach for a while before cycling back to the lodge.

In the afternoon, you will have enough energy again to go surfing on your own with new friends you made at the lodge. Every minute you spend in the water will make you learn more about all aspects of surfing and you'll feel happy and free. With a cold drink, you will toast on a good day in the garden of the lodge. You will taste delicious food after being active all day. At the campfire at night, all guests will share their stories. By the time you get to bed, you will feel satisfied.
