You may choose to stay in either a shared or private room at Casa Tranquila. It is a beautiful property located just outside of Dominical. It sits atop a hill within the jungle and with views of the ocean. The lodging is known as Casa Tranquila because the setting is simply serene. It is the perfect getaway in Costa Rica.
There are four rooms with private entrances and bathrooms. Each are equipped with mini-fridges and air-conditioners. The rooms are furnished with beds to accommodate single, couple, and shared occupancy. There is also an outdoor common area with a pool, Jacuzzi, grill, outdoor seating, and eating area.
Costa Rica not only offers amazing waves but also a unique culture and renowned natural beauty. Famed for its spectacularly beautiful scenery and thriving bio-diverse ecosystems, the Central American nation of Costa Rica is considered by many to be a paradise on earth. You can roam deserted beaches, hike along the rims of volcanoes, and plunge into pristine rain forests and jungles.
Being one of the most popular vacation and adventure destinations in the world, Costa Rica welcomes visitors with warm smiles, open arms, and acceptance. The reliance on tourism and eco-friendly industries allows Costa Rica to focus on providing first class services for its residents and visitors, including advanced medical centers and hospitals, well maintained infrastructure, and a network of protected parks and nature reserves.
Although areas of the world like California, Hawaii, and Australia are perhaps more famous, Costa Rica enjoys some of the finest surfing spots anywhere. Thanks to favorable Pacific Ocean currents and an accommodating coastline, the beaches in southwestern Costa Rica are blessed with an abundance of consistent waves that range from gentle swells ideal for beginning surfers to larger barrels that can challenge the skills of even the most seasoned surfer.
This surf camp will take place in Dominical, Costa Rica. Dominical is one of the most consistent beach breaks that you will find. No matter the swell or time of year, there are always waves in Dominical. The waves break both left and right, offering nice options for all surfers. There are several beach breaks within Dominical, including the main beach and Dominicalito.
Due to the varied choice of breaks, this area is perfect for all surfers from beginners to advanced. Advanced surfers can often enjoy beautiful barrels in Dominical. At Dominicalito, intermediate surfers will find nice, slow, and rolling waves that are forgiving and offer the perfect opportunity to work on turns and techniques. Endless Olas Surf Camp also coaches beginners here on a daily basis.
Finally, this break is uncrowded, where you can surf on your own and focus on yourself without concern for crowds. Endless Olas Surf Camp has traveled the world surfing and unfortunately have found that this is a rarity. But it is a rarity that you will enjoy in Costa Rica.
You will have daily surf sessions at one of many available surf breaks. This will include 5 lessons for the 7-night stay with surf equipment (surfboards, rash guards, etc). Twice daily lessons are available upon request. Endless Olas Surf Camp will make sure that you will be provided with a comfortable atmosphere to learn.
Surfing is not something that can only be taught on the beach. Therefore, Endless Olas Surf Camp offers several classes throughout the week on surf mechanics and wave theory. This will also include time in the pool to work on paddling and duck-dive techniques. Endless Olas Surf Camp will never simply bring you into the ocean without guidance first.
Endless Olas Surf Camp will take video of all of you and review the videos with you in order to offer feedback. Endless Olas Surf Camp finds that offering feedback is much more productive when you have the visuals of themselves during the explanation.
Beside surfing, 2 yoga classes will be offered (for those who wish to partake) on multiple days throughout the week. The yoga instructors are first-rate professionals. Massages will also be offered upon demand on a few occasions. One day will be a free day from surfing and you can choose one of the activities offered by Endless Olas Surf Camp.
Please book your flight to San Jose International Airport (SJC). Endless Olas Surf Camp will pick you up from the airport. The pick-up is included in the price.
Due to its close location to the equator, Costa Rica has two seasons: the dry and the green season. For some, the ideal time to visit Costa Rica is during the dry season, which runs from approximately mid-December through the end of April as this is a season of abundant sunshine.
Alternatively, traveling to Costa Rica during the green season is a great way to save money on lodging and it is also when the plants are the greenest and the jungle explodes with life. While the waves are consistent all year round, the bigger swells tend to hit between May and November, providing amazing barrel waves for more avid surfers.
During the green season, a favorite time of year to visit is May or June as you get the perfect mix of warm weather, lower prices, and outstanding waves without too much rain. Therefore, there is truly a perfect time of year for everyone.
On the eastern Caribbean coastal areas and the northern plains, humidity will be high with temperatures of 22-31 degrees Celsius. The humidity is usually lower on the Pacific side but temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius during the dry season.
The country can receive between 10-12 inches of rain per month during the green season. The rain tends to fall predominantly overnight, so you still get plenty of sunshine during the day.

"An amazing and unforgettable experience. From the minute we were picked up at the airport, Luis and his team at Endless Olas Surf Camp did everything they could to make sure our first visit to Costa Rica was amazing and unforgettable. My cousin and I (both with some prior surfing experience) were looking for a unique way to visit Costa Rica. We found Endless Olas Surf Camp and booked the perfect trip. The surfing was the best! We went to several different beaches throughout the week based on our skill level and they were very private with amazing wave. I highly recommend Endless Olas Surf Camp to find out what they have to offer and to book the best surfing experience ever!"

"Authentic Costa Rica! This was the trip of a lifetime. I wouldn’t have wanted to experience Costa Rica any other way. From the moment we arrived in the airport and met Luis and his team, I felt safe and comfortable. The accommodations we were brought to were wonderful. They took us to local and uncrowded spot which were the perfect spots to learn and improve our surfing skills. This was an amazing experience I will never forget and fully intend on returning. Thank you so much to all who are a part of Endless Olas Surf Camp for making this the trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend them to experience the ultimate and authentic Costa Rican or Pura Vida vacation."
