The Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel in Tamarindo immediately puts you into the Pura Vida Costa Rica mindset from the moment you walk through the front doors. The open-air layout of this Tamarindo hotel presents you with lush tropical flora and fauna, brightly colored murals, cents of fresh Costa Rican coffee and flowers, the feeling of the warm sun and the ocean breeze, and sounds of local wildlife.

In this surf camp, three types of accommodation are offered by Witch's Rock Surf Camp. The accommodations are Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel standard room, Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel adjoining room, and Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel two bedroom apartment. For more information on Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel adjoining room and Pueblo Dorado Surf Hotel two bedroom apartment, please send an inquiry to Witch's Rock Surf Camp.


Two hours daily surf lessons

Witch's Rock Surf Camp gives intimate and focused instruction with a maximum of three students per instructor. They think this is one of the things that set them apart from other surf schools. They are not interested in taking large groups of people out into the surf just to paddle around. This package is for people who really want to learn.

Witch's Rock Surf Camp surf instructors are bi-lingual, friendly, patient, and qualified. They are local surfers with a deep understanding of the sport of surfing, safety, and Tamarindo beaches. They don't do the group surf lesson thing. Their lessons are private; never more than four guests per instructor, ensuring you get plenty of attention and improve quickly.

Optional classroom seminars

You can join optional classroom seminars lead by Witch's Rock Surf Camp surf instructors that are interesting, informative, and fun. This is a great way to meet other people at the camp. Topics include surf science, safety, paddling, and surf etiquette. The seminars are recommended for beginners and intermediate surfers, and advanced surfers are welcome to join for a refresher, or to share your experience.

Graduation surf trip by Friday

Now that you have a whole new level of skill, Witch's Rock Surf Camp will take you on a surf trip to one of their nearby beaches to test those skills on new waves. This mini-trip will leave you feeling confident and empowered in the water. You might feel like your friends and family at home wouldn't believe it. That's why they get it all on film. The graduation trip is only offered to guests who participate in the camp from Saturday to Saturday.

Graduation surf ceremony

It's official, you're a surfer now! You will watch a surf video of your unforgettable week and reminisce with new life-long friends before you head home. You can also purchase the video as a souvenir.

Witch's Rock Surf Camp is really good at what they do. Since they opened 15 years ago, they have successfully taught over 90,000 surf lessons. If you don't learn to surf, Witch's Rock Surf Camp offers a money-back guarantee. Come for our standard week-long beginner surf school program and if they can't get you riding waves, Witch's Rock Surf Camp will refund the whole surf package.

They get many people standing up on their first lesson but they will get you surfing even if you're not a strong swimmer, you're not a spring chicken anymore, or you're not in great shape. Whatever it takes, Witch's Rock Surf Camp go the extra mile to give you that new surfer smile.

Playa Tamarindo is a stunning 1.5 mile stretch of beach situated along the Guanacaste coastline in northwest Costa Rica. Just a one hour drive from the Liberia Airport (LIR), this small yet bustling surf town offers an all-inclusive vacation experience in itself.

You won’t need to rent a car here, you can walk to everything including beaches, restaurants, shops, parks, and a wide array of activities. Enjoy the ease, diversity, and beauty of this culturally eclectic and naturally beautiful slice of heaven on Earth.

The surf camp is located just north of the equator means Tamarindo receives consistent surf throughout the year from south, west, and north swells. Tamarindo has multiple surf spots with waves for all levels of surfers right in front of the surf camp.

There are also many world-class point breaks, reef breaks, and beach breaks located a short boat or van ride from town. Come to surf the famous Witch’s Rock, Ollie’s Point, Playa Avellanas, Playa Grande, and Playa Marbella to name a few.

Tamarindo’s beaches, ocean, and estuary are simply stunning landscapes, it’s no wonder Costa Rica has declared Tamarindo a National Marine Park. Tamarindo is paradise for any nature or animal lover. Witness over 200 species of animals in their natural habitat including howler monkeys, crocodiles, sea turtles, tropical birds, and iguanas.

There is a transcendental beach vibe that permeates all areas of life in Tamarindo. Surfing put this town on the map and attracts like-minded people who appreciate the laid-back beach lifestyle. Create authentic relationships with the friendly staff and make lifelong friendships with the many return guests that already have this place figured out.

Tamarindo is home to many quality local and international restaurants. Shopping for local fashion, souvenirs, and handicraft is a must. Tamarindo nightlife offers affordable drinks with a relaxed vibe, or a more upbeat salsa dancing scene. Most of the establishments in town offer views of the ocean and picturesque sunsets.

Rincon de la Vieja National Park

This Costa Rica volcano tour is a full day adventure that you just can’t miss. Spend the day at Hacienda Guachipelin (one and a half hours travel time), located in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Enjoy a zip line tour, horseback riding, hot springs, waterfalls and river tubing. Lunch and transportation are included. This is a full day tour, departing at 7:00 a.m. and returning around 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. The tour is priced at 140 USD per person.

Las Baulas National Marine Park Estuary tour

This is the best way to witness the local wildlife. Our hotel is located at the entrance of the Las Baulas Marine Park. We highly recommend going on a tour with Don Enrique. This tour is best at high tide when the estuary floods and boats can access the deep recesses of this extensive mangrove network. View monkeys, crocodiles, plenty of tropical birds, giant crabs, and more. A sunset tour in the estuary is like being on another planet. The tour is priced at 30 USD per person.

Tamarindo Bay catamaran sunset tour

At Pueblo Dorado, we think the best way to see the coast and enjoy the famous Tamarindo sunset is aboard a 65 feet catamaran. Reserve your tour with the Marlin del Rey and the Blue Dolphin, the two best catamaran tours in Tamarindo. These tours depart Playa Tamarindo daily at 1:00 p.m. and return just after sunset. Enjoy an open bar, fruit, and snacks. The catamaran stops at Playa Huevos or Playa Minas and includes kayaks and snorkeling gear. The tour is priced at 85 USD per person.

Tamarindo zip line canopy tour

Ziplining in Costa Rica is something you have to do at least once. Zip through the jungle canopy, high above the ground amidst dense flora and fauna as you spot Costa Rica wildlife. Zip line tours are provided by Canopy Pinilla and Pura Aventura. These tours last about 2 hours and include hotel pick up and drop off.The tour is priced at 40 to 50 USD per person.
