About us

Located just a few steps from Playa Grande beach, we are a small, laid back surf hostel, the only one in town in to offer budget accommodation in a shared dorm room.  We also have private cabina’s and open air rooms.

Located in the south of Playa Grande we are fortunate to be in a peaceful and secluded National Park.

During daytime hours the vibrant restaurant and party scene of Tamarindo are easy to reach with a 10 min walk and a short 1 minute boat ride over the estuary located between Playa Grande and Tamarindo.

The closest airport to us is in Liberia which is a one hour drive away. Transportation to and from the surf camp can be arranged.

Surf Camp Life

Our fully equipped outside kitchen provides the perfect space for guests to prepare their own meals. We also have an onsite restaurant ‘Café Mar Azul’ producing fresh locally sourced Costa Rican food.

There are plenty of local activities and surfing to keep our active guests busy but for those who just want to relax, our pool and surrounding hammocks invite you to spend the hottest hours of the days tucked away in the comfortable shade of our palm trees.

A sanctuary for both surfers and turtles

The beach at Playa Grande is the permanent nesting site for leatherback turtles. It provides a safe landing vital to the endangered leatherback turtle. Female leatherbacks come ashore during the nights in October to May to lay their eggs in the sand. They then cover the eggs and return to the ocean.

The eco-friendly Costa Rican government has gone to great lengths to protect the habitat of these amazing animals. This has allowed Playa Grande to remain a sanctuary for both the turtles and surfers alike, and surfers from all over have christened Playa Grande as home of some of Costa Rica’s best waves.
