Surf Camp Testimonial

Best Surf Camp Experience!

Four of my best friends and I decided to take a surf trip to Costa Rica. Last year, a mutual friend of ours stayed with the Real Surf Trips and the guy couldn’t stop raving about his experience. To this day, he still talks about his trip and the epic surf. We decided to reach out to the RST guys and ask about a more affordable package. Turns out they just opened a new surf camp location in Playa Avellana that was more cost-effective yet just as accommodating. We were all stoked with the accommodations and pricing considering were all still college students!

We arrived at the house, dropped our bags, unpacked our boards and were surfing within the hour. We were completely blown away! And completely blown away by the house!!! It was unbelievable. Beautiful architecture, quiet, wide open, air conditioned, and private rooms. Oh, and a pool! The views were awesome and we got to see howler monkeys outside our windows pretty much every morning.

We all really liked the way they had the place set up. We could walk to the beach (less than 10 minutes) or take the bikes. Days we didn’t feel like surfing Playa Avellana, Bob had a shuttle pick us up and drive us to the surf spot of our choosing. Seriously, what more could you ask for!?

And we all loved eating at Lola’s! Our routine was a surf session in the morning, then a meal at Lola’s, followed by another surf session in the evening, and then another meal at Lola’s. Their margaritas were insane!

This was definitely one of the most memorable experiences we’ve ever had as friends. We couldn’t have found a better place that was more affordable, had epic surf, and embodied the “Pura Vida” attitude better! We’re already planning another trip next year! Yew! Thanks Bob and the crew. You guys rock.
