The Place Mal Pais Surf Camp Costa Rica Program

How do you know if the Adrenalina’s surf package is for you? Well, are you ready to awaken a new passion? Are you young or still young at heart? Are you a beginner and interested in challenging yourself to something new and feeling the euphoric reward that follows? Or are you an intermediate to advanced looking to expand your skills and continue the search for the ride of your life while under the guidance of the experienced and knowledgeable surf instructors? Then we’ve got just what you need.

Imagine the deep blue sea, the waves are constant and break perfectly. You see a beautiful set of waves coming in, your surf instructor tells you to start paddling as you begin to paddle you feel the strength of the wave start to build beneath you. As the first drops of adrenaline rush through your body, everything goes quiet inside your mind. It’s just you and the wave.

You pop up and stand on your board, gliding on the wave you’re overcome with a euphoric sensation of being in perfect harmony with the elements around you. Now you understand the true meaning of living in the moment. As the wave ends and you jump off your board, you feel that something new has been awoken deep inside you.

You look back and see your instructor gives you the surfer’s congratulation and then calls you back out to catch your next wave and you smile, realizing that although that ride may have come to an end, it’s only just the beginning.

So your surf session is over, you’re already looking forward to what tomorrow’s session will bring, but what can you do until then? Is there anything else here to fill your time besides surfing? The answer is yes! Mal Pais / Santa Teresa offers many diverse and unique experiences such as strolling along the beautifully wild white sandy beaches of Mal Pais / Santa Teresa / Hermosa.

Walking to the nearby center of Playa Carmen / Santa Teresa with its charming small gourmet restaurants, laid-back beach bars, and boutique shops. Diving into the refreshing water of the emerald-green pool, letting the spray of the Montezuma waterfall massage your shoulders. Relaxing in a hammock in the shade of the palm trees and dreaming about your next ride. All this and more is there waiting for you!

In addition, the staff during this surf camp are Yvonne and Lolo. Yvonne is the owner of Hotel The Place. She and her team are there to make your stay with them as most comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Anything you need, from a restaurant recommendation to booking a sunset horseback ride on the beach, they are there to help you. Their goal is to make your trip to Mal Pais / Santa Teresa your best vacation yet!

Meanwhile, Lolo is the owner of Adrenalina, one of the first surf schools in the area. After arriving in Mal Pais in 1999, he has spent over 10 years building a solid reputation not only as one of the town’s most prestigious surf schools but also as a member of its local community.
