5 Day Adventure & Surf Package

Our 5 Day Surf Training Camp
 is a much more elaborate program for camp, suited best for those who want to improve their surfing experience or discover a new one. The amount of days consistently surfing and training, are very important for the overall performance of the surfer, beginner or intermediate, since our instructors will have much more water time with the student making his or her progress much more visible.


This camp combines rest and relaxation with surf and adventure, making this all-inclusive experience one you wont want to miss.
 Like our previous options, the 5 day camp will start with our staff meeting you in the international airport in one of our super comfortable air conditioned vans, to drive you to your destination, the Central Pacific region of the Costa Rica, where Jaco Beach is, to start your training program.
 Once you get settled in, boards sizes will be assigned to as well as the introduction to the group of instructors that you will work with during your training program. Schedules will be reviewed, water conditions discussed and then to the real deal! - Dominating the pristine waters of Playa Jaco Costa Rica, the top destination in the country for both beginner and experienced level surfers.!

BeFunky 7day22
Our most complete and entertaining program, the 7 Day Adventure & Surf & program is the perfect choice for the adventure lovers and mellow surfers alike, with a variety of options and activities that allows you to choose your own schedule.

Costa Rica holds 5% of the worlds diversity and the Central Pacific area is famous for its wildlife as well as its majestic waves. Our watermen and hosts will make this trip the best opportunity for you to enjoy this wild land in a safe responsible way. We take our work with pride since we are all a part of this giant touristic surfing jungle.

Once you have settled into our Surf House at Hotel Perico Azul, located in Playa Jaco, Costa Rica, we will give you a little tour of town and its amenities so that you get familiar with the area and the camp. We will also provide you with a Banana Bike (beach cruiser), since this is the main method of transportation for locals and it’s a very healthy convenient choice for the small run into town.


Surf is scheduled around the tides so as soon as you have learned the basics, we will start your surfing adventure on our beach station, and our ISA & Lifeguard certified instructors will lead you through this program with patience and care.

This camp is combined with adventure activities and we provide you with a large list of activities to choose from, to help round out your experience with a variety of adventures or canopy experiences in the middle of the Costar Rican jungle. We will also guide you through Jaco’s best restaurant and local dining venues for you to be able to taste both local and international cuisine.

In only 7 days you will be able to experience Costa Rica in a warm and unique way. We make a huge effort to ensure that the environment of the camp is familiar and cozy: your very own Costa Rican Surf house. We won’t just drop you off at some hotel and pick you up for tours, like other tour operators do; we will share the real Costa Rica with you, and that’s our most important mission!
