Location

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, Jacó 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.
