Discover this amazing Costa Rica surf accommodations in Playa Avellanas. Are you traveling with your surf gang or a significant other? Do you want to experience the real surf camp life as well as wake up in your own private cozy in the middle of the jungle? Rapture Surf Camp offers a variety of rooms for all budgets and lifestyles.

Everything from clean and practical bunk beds for you and your homies to love nests with king-size bed and private balcony for couples. There is literally room for everyone in the rapture family! Many rooms are air-conditioned and all have mosquito screens on windows. Also, all rooms except Private Avellanas and the dorms have showers with hot water.

During your stay, you may also enjoy the infinity pool on-site and the beautiful yoga deck.


Avellanas is a surfer’s paradise. The white beach in front of the camp is surrounded by mangrove forests and is home to 5 surf breaks that can be surfed at all tides and offer waves for all levels. Not only they have spots that suit all abilities but water is about 27 degrees Celsius year-round making a wetsuit obsolete during the whole year. And since there are no crowds on our beach, you can enjoy brakes between surf sessions resting peacefully under a palm tree.

Surf lessons and guiding

No matter if you have stood on a board once or twice before, you plan all your travels around surfing the world, or you want to experience the feeling of riding a wave for the first time, Rapture Surf Camp's local surf guides know every break and will take you to the one that suits your level and offers perfect conditions for that day.

They’ll show you how to successfully pop on the board, how to progress from whitewater to green waves and how to enhance your existing skills, taking you from riding to ripping. Of course, they have boards of all shapes, sizes, and abilities you can rent at their school.

Every day, you will have a delicious daily breakfast. After that, you usually go surfing and then yoga classes to relax your body and soul. Once a week, there will be a beautiful bonfire. At the bar, you can enjoy a drink and chill with your friends.

Children policy

Please take note that it's not recommended to bring children to the camp during certain seasons. Children during high season months are not allowed as the camp's conditions do not favor their stay. For more information about this, please send an inquiry to Rapture Surf Camp.


The camp is located just 20-minute driving from Tamarindo, Costa Rica‘s party epicenter, yet the location is secluded in the middle of the jungle on a pristine white sand beach.

Hidden gems such as Playa Langosta, Playa Grande, and Playa Negra (mostly known from the surf movie Endless Summer II) are all accessible in minutes from camp. Rapture Surf Camp offers shuttle services and bike rentals if you want to explore the other surf spots in the area. Tamarindo is famous for being the party capital of the Guanacaste region.

In case you are in need of a major post-surfing fiesta, Rapture Surf Camp can organize a shuttle that will take you there in 20 minutes so you don’t have to worry about driving after a few drinks.
