The Northwest Pacific region of Guanacaste is the driest area of Costa Rica with beautiful beaches that stretch for miles. The ‘Gold Coast’ is a prime area for sun and relaxation. Little rain and consistent warm temperatures offer visitors an enviable climate, breathtaking beaches and lovely Pacific sunsets. The land is still ”virgin” and undisturbed. It is still customary to see real cowboys, wild horses, cattle traffic jams, and wild bull fights, an experience that makes Costa Rica unique. A cultural experience that is becoming rare-if not extinct. When you’re not surfing there is plenty to do — check out the beaches and explore the tidal pools. Nearby, discover all kinds of wildlife including Howler Monkeys, Iguanas, Toucans and much more. Chill at the local hotel and have a cold beer, play pool or grab your skate deck and hit the new Playa Negra skate park!

Surfed hard all day? No worries, we’ll arrange one of several certified masseuses to come to the house and work out the soreness that comes with paddling and getting tubed all day. You’ll be limber and paddling circles around your friends next session!
Witches Rock, Ollies Point, Labyrinth and a couple other mysto spots are a couple hours up the coast located in Santa Rosa national park.

We will charter a boat for you to fish, snorkel, surf, and do any combination of the three in a single trip. Maykol will take you to Flamingo Beach, where the boat departs.

Witness an amazing natural phenomena called an ARRIBADA (arrival). This is the time sea turtles come to lay their eggs in staggering numbers for 2-4 days, at the start of the last quarter moon. A few hundred turtles, if not thousands, appear out of the depths of the sea to make their nests in the black volcanic sand.
