This retreat will take place in the beautiful city of Jaco, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Costa Rica is known for its miles of white sandy beaches, monkeys swinging in the trees that line the sand, and endless waves that begged to be ridden. With the name Costa Rica meaning the “rich coast”, it certainly lives up to its name by having some of the best-surfing destinations in the world.

From beginner to advanced, there is a wave for everyone along one of Costa Rica’s hundreds of beaches. Unpaved roads and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise.

Selina surf club is located in Playa Jaco spot. Jaco has incredible year-round surf conditions for all surfing levels, probably one of the best places worldwide to improve your surfing or learn to surf for the first time. It is located just 10 - 15 minutes of rest of the most important spots in the area. Playa Jaco is a surfer’s sanctuary. There is no doubt that Jaco is one of the best places to begin your surfing journey.

Beginners can learn to ride here and veterans can get their groove back. The long beach of Jaco features a small beach break with lots of peaks. The waves break over a sandy bottom to the right and left. Although the waves have an average quality with an ordinary power, they remain consistent throughout the year and provide a great base for all sorts of surfers.

Good swells are raised from northwest and southwest direction. Unlike other beaches, a southern swell creates small surf as it is protected by a western bay. Superb waves are generated at mid to high tide when it is rising. The best time to surf is two hours before a high tide. During a low tide, beginners can learn to surf in the whitewater.

From hard-core surfing to family-friendly activities, Jaco has it all. You can ride on horseback through the rainforest or take an ATV tour to waterfalls and beaches off the beaten path. Take a leap, either with a bungee cord or with a zipline through the forest canopy. Other tours include scuba diving, sports fishing, and sea kayaking. The town offers every modern convenience, as well as great cuisine and shopping and an all-you-can-handle nightlife.

Nearby surfing spots include Playa El Carmen, Playa Hermosa, Manzanillo, Mal País, and Punta Barrigona. The waves are suitable for beginners, intermediate, and advance. You can find the best and more consistent Costa Rica's waves. Selina Santa Teresa is close to the groceries, ATM, bars, and restaurants.

Characterization of surroundings / region

Demarcated by Nicaragua in the north and Panama in the south, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the center, bordered by low coastal lands in the east and in the west. More of half of the population live in this plain with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands, and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean coast, which is 212 kilometers long.

More cut and rocky, the Pacific coast spreads out 1,016 kilometers, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas. Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica. As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit year-round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit.

"Pura Vida" is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans and it reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life. Literally translated, the expression means “pure life” and denotes a simple life, free of stress, a positive, and relaxed feeling. Also, in Costa Rica, there are no hollow promises but a true political will and a life reference. Everything has been settled for more than 15 years now for a harmonious and lasting development. Ecology in Costa Rica is a position for the whole nation.
