Costa Rica Surf and Yoga Holiday

Welcome to GYPSET’s first-ever surf camp!! They’re pretty stoked about this one. They've been surfing in Panama and Costa Rica and are officially hooked so they thought it was time to hone in on their very beginner-level surf skills and dedicate a week to surfing and yoga. All levels are welcome, you do not have to have any experience on a surfboard to go on this retreat!

Retreat location

The location for this week will be in the heart of the Hermosa surf zone, giving you the freedom to take full advantage of the best surf conditions. Check the tides, grab your board, and go! Outside of surf and yoga, the region of Santa Teresa and the Nicoya Peninsula offers an abundance of activities for GYPSET adventures and nature-lovers alike. These include full-day excursions visiting local islands for some sport fishing, scuba diving, or snorkeling, or afternoon sightseeing to closer-to-home destinations.

Some of the more popular activities include zip-lining through the treetops, horse riding along the beach, visiting the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, renting ATVs, or hiking the waterfalls in Montezuma. If you're after something more relaxing, massage is available too.


All of GYPSET's meals are prepared by the house chef, José Muñoz, using locally-sourced produce and serving largely traditional Costa Rican dishes. Before your morning surf session, start with a delicious sunrise snack of fresh fruit, yogurt, and granola. After surfing, share a typical Costa Rican breakfast including gallo pinto, omelets, tortillas, breakfast burritos, and banana pancakes.

For dinner, you will be served a daily special using fresh fish, poultry, meats, rice and beans, homemade pizzas, and locally grown vegetables. If you have specific dietary restrictions, please let GYPSET know upon booking and the kitchen will do their very best to accommodate.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival from San Jose

1. You will take a commuter plane from San Jose to Tambor (a 25-minute flight) and then take a cab (a 45-minute ride to the retreat). This is roughly a 1.5-hour trip, door-to-door.

2. You can also travel via private shuttle, which is usually a door-to-door service, from the airport or your hotel in San Jose direct to Santa Teresa. This is a 5-hour trip including 1.5 hours on a ferry.

Arrival from Liberia

You may be able to book a direct flight from your city of origin to Liberia. From Liberia, you will book a commuter flight, via Sansa Air, to Tambor. The cost is approximately 217 USD for a round trip. The retreat is a 45-minute drive from the airport in Tambor.

Whether it is easier for you to fly into San Jose or Liberia really depends on where you’re coming from. Just let GYPSET know if you need booking travel assistance.
