Costa Rica

The OG spot for surfers, yogis, and nomads searching for adventure and the simple things in life.

pura vida.

destination

Arguably the country that made nomad life ~cool~, Costa Rica has been a hotspot for ecotourism, wellness, adventure travel, and ex-pats looking to escape the hustle and bustle for decades.

Costa Rica

Catch a Break

You’re not a true surfer bro if you’ve never tested out the waves in Costa Rica. This is one of the most popular surfing destinations in the world, and with 800 miles of coastline, there’s a wave for everyone (whether you need a lesson or five or are already an experienced shredder). Some of the best surfing beaches around the country are Playa Naranjo/Witch's Rock, Playa Tamarindo, Playa Avellanas, and Playa Hermosa.

Up in the Trees

When you think of Costa Rica, you probably imagine a jungle paradise. This tiny Central American country contains 5% of the world’s biodiversity, and we’re still discovering new species here! More than 25% of Costa Rica’s land is protected as national parks, reserves, and wildlife refuges, with over 100 different areas to visit. The monkeys are waiting.

Go Chasing Waterfalls

Seeing a massive waterfall in real life is one of those jaw-dropping moments. Luckily for you, Costa Rica’s got a few of them. While you may work up a sweat trekking to some of these natural gems, the views, wildlife sightings, and a dip in a swimming hole under cascading water sure make it worth the trip.

Pura Vida

It is more than just a surf shop catchphrase; it is a way of life. Translating to “pure life,” this outlook is all about taking it slow, enjoying the simple things, and being grateful for what you have. It’s been a major draw for ex-pats looking for a fresh start, and Costa Ricans are consistently ranked among the happiest people in the world. It sounds like we all need a little pura vida in our lives.

When the best part of the trip was the people 💙💚💛❤️💜 thank you #surfyogabeer @mantaszvinas @surfyogabeer @huntthesheriff @katiebhappyy @saludnyc

i want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back 🔥

we fostered something beyond words this week. on day 1, we saw a group of 18 total strangers come together. in the coming days, we got our asses handed to us in @angelo_grinceri’s bootcamps, we watched the moon set and the sun rise - and then the sun set and the moon rise, we danced and sang in (sometimes) empty discos without a care in the world, shared the stories that made us the people we are today, cried, eye-gazed, and came to know each other on a deep soul level.

so blessed to know every person that stepped out of their comfort zone on this trip. that led with love in all of the interactions they had and that made my first (of many to come) international fitness adventure so overwhelmingly perfect. most of all, grateful to have someone like @where.your.hope.lives to live it with 🙌🏼. this is just the beginning for us.

The Location

Costa Rica is known for its beautiful national parks where you can partake in hiking, ziplining, river rafting, and experience unique wildlife such as macaws, sea turtles and sloths. 

On the coast, Costa Rica is known for its stunning sandy beaches, with perfect surfing and tropical weather year-round. 

Also, Costa Rica has five active volcanoes and many inactive volcanoes, providing tons of exciting jungle exploration!

Our Accomodations

Our stunning beachfront accommodation is the perfect setting for both new and advanced surfers. 

Money in Costa Rica

Costa Rica's national currency is the colón, but the USD is widely accepted across the country. 

ATMs are available across the country, but we suggest withdrawing money in your home country to avoid withdrawal fees. 

We suggest bringing $300 to $400 to use at bars and a few of our dinners, but otherwise, we've got you covered!

Fuelling Our Bodies

Rice and beans are essential aspects of the Costa Rican starch-heavy diet. 

Pork and beef are most commonly consumed, but chicken and fish are widely famous on the coast! 

The wide variety of climates in the country provides an array of fruit, such as bananas, pineapple, papaya, mango and coconut, to name just a few!

Make sure to try a traditional breakfast of rice & beans called Galle pinto - a local favorite!

Let's Talk Water

It is safe to drink the water in Costa Rica, however, as a precautionary measure, tourists should drink bottled or filtered water to prevent any sickness. We will provide this on the trip!

Safety in Costa Rica

It is important to stay alert in Costa Rica, as petty crimes such as scams, pickpocketing, and theft can be common in tourist areas. 

Our accommodations will have safes for us to leave our valuables in, and we suggest leaving all important items in the safe while we are out exploring - but maybe keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home!

Our area is safe, but you should not feel stressed or unsafe!
