Where in Costa Rica?

We are located in Dominical beach, this is a small surf village located in the south pacific of Costa Rica. One of the reasons why this place is so special, is due to it’s evergreen look, the mountains embrace the sea in a romantic kinda way!

You can be sitting in the line-up waiting for waves and in the meantime you can meditate to the beauty of everything surrounding you.  On top of this, locals are very friendly in and out of the water, within a couple of days around town you will feel very welcome, recognizing faces and receiving greetings as if you were already part of our beautiful community.

Information about traveling to Costa Rica

Our local currency is colon, $1 usd is equivalent to about 570 colones. Our recommendation is that you use both. There are two ATM’s in town, we would recommend you to bring a some cash with you beforehand.

Travel insurance is recommended.  During traveling or surfing accidents may occur, it is not common but it’s always better to be ready for any possible incident.

Temperature is in average 25°C (77 °F) most year round, we recommend you to travel light!

Bring comfortable surfing clothes (shorts/bikinis), lots of sunblock, bug spray, tennis shoes for the adventure tours and sandals for the rest of the time. Please leave your wetsuit at home!

Costa Ricans are kind, friendly and helpful people with a layback lifestyle. As a result, the motto of the country is “Pura Vida” which means pure life and it is the first Spanish word that you will learn since it means almost everything!

Pura Vida represents a non-stress lifestyle but also a “thank you”, “how are you”, “hello” and “goodbye”. Hopefully you can take some of this chillness with you, use it to get through difficult days at work back in daily life 😉

Debbie and her team is looking forward to welcome you in her Women Surf Camp in Costa Rica!

Please don’t be shy, if you have any questions or special request, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
