Women's Surf Camp

Guided Nature Walks

Included in our package will be a couple of guided nature walks around the Conte-Burica Reserve. The Conte-Burica Reserve is home to the largest and least acculturated tribe in Costa Rica, the Guaymi (who call themselves the Ngöbe). You will see the Ngöbe women wearing their colorful pollera hand-sewn dresses as well as other crafts which may be purchased, such as the traditional chacaras (balsa fiber bags) and the popular woven hats commonly known as Panama hats.

During the nature walks you may see some of the 200 varieties of birds including scarlet macaws and toucans, an amazing variety of mammals such as sloths and anteaters, brightly colored reptiles and amphibians, like iguanas and poison dart frogs. You will also see spectacular waterfalls and swim in emerald green pools under the jungle canopy.

Matapalo Boat Trip

You will take an unforgettable boat ride across the Gulfo Dulce to Matapalo on the Osa Peninsula. During the ride to and from Matapalo it is possible to see pods of Spinner, Bottle-Nose, and Black-spotted dolphins that breed and live in the gulf. December through May is prime time to see Humpback and and Blue whales breeching as they come into the gulf to give birth and care for their calves.

At Matapalo you will have the opportunity to surf a gentle right point break called Pan Dulce and take a short nature walk under the mountains of the Corcovado National Park, the largest virgin rain forest in the Western Hemisphere north of the Amazon. Here you will be sure to see some curious coatis, monkeys, exotic birds, and other creatures of the rain forest.

SUP Stand Up Paddle

It may happen on a surf trip. The surf goes flat for a day. Now you can get out there on the water and try the newest board sensation--stand up paddle. Stand Up Paddle, or SUP is a full body workout, using your arms, back and shoulders to paddle, and your core and legs to balance.

Cruise along with an elevated perspective and peer down to see fish swimming along the ocean floor. Even if you've never stood on a surfboard before, you'll quickly be able to stand up and paddle around.


Expect to discover some muscles you never knew existed. Our one hour therapeutic massage is designed to relax all those sore, aching muscles and relieve tension. Our licensed massage therapist has not only been trained in a number of techniques, such as Namakoshi Shiatsu, Swedish Massage, Foot Reflexology, Cranial/Sacral, and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, but she also has extensive experience in the field of medical massage and working on sore surfers.

All activities are optional. But, if you are the kind of person that does not want to spend a couple of afternoons walking along the beaches or relaxing on your lanai, we will be happy to make arrangements for you to enjoy a number of other activities, like Spanish language classes, horseback riding, fishing, private surf lessons, more yoga, more massages, or other types of pampering.
