My brother and I spent a week in Playa Dominical to celebrate my 35th birthday and it was by far the best one yet. The people at Costa Rica Surf Camp were the ones that made this happen. Not only do you get to learn how to surf on a varitey of beaches but you also get to explore and partake in the “local vibe” of the Dominical from the minute you arrive. We were instantly welcomed and shown around. We were also given a multitude of things to choose from to entertain us in our upcoming weeks stay. You will run out of time before you run out of things to do here.
Lessons are taught in small groups( it was just the two of us) with expert instructors who take the time to make sure you get the most out of your lesson. Being in such small groups was a great way to get the one on one attention you need when you are just a beginner. Thank you to Cesar and Ezequiel!!!
Kaitilin was a huge help to us from the very beginning by honestly answering any and all questions that were thrown her way. She was very helpful in helping us select everything from airlines to hotels to what and where to eat around town.
Kaitlin and Cesar were the best “tour guides” we could have asked for(although I hate to call them this because truly they became our friends) There’s no better way to explore the Dominical than through the locals themselves. They were both very accomodating, informative and very fun to be around. We went on all kinds of adventures including hikes , waterfall tours, rope swings, scenic lookouts, national parks and gorgeous Costa Rican beaches. I highly recomend taking a trip to Manuel Antonio its totally worth it.
Playa Dominical is an awesome local surf town with some amazing eateries and fun nightlife. The people are wonderful and the food is DELICIOUS. They have everything from Thai to Sushi to local Costa Rican cuisine. We also really enjoyed being here in the low season. Its nice to be able to relax in a chill environment that is not over run with toursits. We were a little concerned about the “rainy season” but the weather turned out perfect the entire time we were there. Even though it may rain at some point there are still tons of fun things to keep you busy in the rainforest.
So if you are looking for an affordable, adventurous, beautiful, friendly and “local vibe” type of place for your surfing adventure Playa Dominical is where to be and Costa Rica surf camp is where its at. Even though I never saw that freaking toucan I was looking for all week I’d still go back and do it all over again. THANK YOU Costa Rica Surf Camp for a birthday I will never forget. Pura Vida.
