Accommodation

During this vacation, you'll be staying in an ocean-view accommodation (single, double, or triple room) at Vista Guapa's surf camp.

Program

During this vacation, you can choose 5 sessions of surf, SUP, or SUP yoga lessons.

Surf lessons

Vista Guapa offers instruction to surfers of all experience levels and ages, from first time beginners to coaching for surfers who are preparing to compete. They make sure to provide personalized attention to all students, therefore they keep a ratio of 2 students per instructor in groups with a maximum of 3 people in certain occasions.

The only prerequisites for surfing lessons are the ability to swim and a positive attitude. The instructors are in the water with the students, helping them to select and catch waves as well as providing constant feedback to the students. Except when conditions are rough or with younger or more timid first-time surfers, students will paddle out past the breakline, rather than just surf the white water nearer to the shore.

SUP lessons

With top-notch equipment, you’ll learn this awesome sport and enjoy the water in some of the most beautiful locations in the country. Couple times a year, Visa Guapa offers SUP camps with experts to help you improve your SUP skills and add a new dimension to your enjoyment of the ocean.

Stand Up Paddle or SUP is a discipline derived from the surf culture of Hawaii using a paddle which you can practice in both small and big waves, as well as calm waters such as lakes and rivers.

Yoga lessons

Yoga retreats in Costa Rica have become quite popular. Vista Guapa combines the wondrous beauty of Costa Rica with the calm serenity of the art of yoga. The surf camp offers two beautiful yoga decks for practicing yoga individually or as a group: one with views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounding area, and the other near the pool. The decks have lights in the evening and generally have a nice breeze throughout the day.

Instructors

Dennis Picado
Dennis’ hobbies other than surfing are skate and SUP surfing. His favorite foods are fish, Casado Típico, and the chicken wings at Surf Dogs. What he loves about teaching is to see the happiness on people’s face when they ride their first wave! He’s currently finishing high school and looking to pursue Business Administration in college. He’s actively competing on national surf contests and training hard to be selected for international competitions as well.
David Solano
David Solano has been competing since 2004 at the Costa Rica Open Nationals, ranking at the top 20 where he gained a vast experience. He's now focused on the National’s Masters division competitions, ranking at the top 10 spots and getting closer to achieve his goals.

Location

Vista Guapa is located in Playa Jaco. Lessons are generally taught on Jaco Beach, which is approximately 4 kilometers long with moderately good waves. Surf lessons are generally held when the tide is coming in, and therefore timing of the lessons varies day to day.

Nearby Playa Hermosa offers multiple breaks (Roca Loca, El Gato, El Peladero, Los Almendros, La Chanchera, La Curva also called “Corners” and Tulin) and is where Vista Guapa generally takes their more experienced guests.
