Costa Rica Surf Camp and Yoga Retreat

Let the Lucero surf team take you through a fun holiday filled with beautiful accommodation, delicious meals, exciting surf lessons, and someone to show you around town. Get away in style and enjoy every single minute of it!

You will be accommodated in single or double rooms in either the Griss Lodge and Villas or the Otro Lado Lodge and Restaurant. These hotels were selected because the Lucero team believes they are two of the best places to stay in town, and since they are only 25 meters from the ocean.

Griss Lodge and Villas

This surf house is located in the untouched jungle of Santa Teresa on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula. It has six luxury apartment houses that are within walking distance from the beach and are wisely-built with local wood. The rooms are air-conditioned and furnished with a mix of modern and traditional items. They also have nice open spaces and great ventilation that are perfect for a tropical climate.

Otro Lado Lodge and Restaurant

Otro Lado is just steps away from the best surf beaches in Santa Teresa. There are two excellent beach breaks and one point break within walking distance from the hotel. Otro Lado caters to surfers and non-surfers alike who want to experience a relaxing wellness vacation. The hotel's theme is inspired by a blend of Asian and Caribbean worlds. It is located close to surf shops, supermarkets, restaurants, and bicycle rentals.

The hotel has six spacious rooms that offer simplicity and comfort to its guests. They all have a private lounging area surrounded by a relaxing tropical garden, a private bathroom, and a terrace where you can admire the surrounding tropical vegetation and pool view. Each room has either one king-sized bed or two single beds that all have orthopedic mattresses, air-conditioning, a safe, and free Wi-Fi connection.

For surfing, you need focus, a clear mind, and a strong body which are also three benefits of yoga. Learning to breathe, clear your head, and hold poses to strengthen muscles is a perfect out-of-water practice for catching that ride in the ocean. The Lucero team has found the perfect balance between the two so you can enjoy both activities to the fullest during your time in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, a town that is truly a surf and yogi mecca.


The surf lessons will include paddling, duck diving, catching a wave, positioning, and more. A certified and experienced surf coach will give you the personal attention you need, and it does not matter if you are a beginner or already a bit more advanced surfer. During the final surf lesson, the Lucero team will go to the beach for your photography session, capturing you in action with the waves. These photos will be sent to you by email after the trip.


Yoga trains your mind to be still so that you can see things clearly. Nature will intensify this experience and heighten your awareness. When you practice yoga outdoors, it will give a different dimension to your practice. During this retreat, there will be a total of five yoga sessions. Four sessions will be held at a beautiful outdoor yoga deck nearby, and one session will be at a breathtaking yoga studio out of town, which the Lucero team considers as a secret spot in the area.

There are different classes to choose from and you can choose when you want to join. You can either start your day with a yoga session while the jungle around you is just waking up, feeling the soft morning breeze on your face, or end your day with an evening class around 6 p.m., where you can rejuvenate after tiring activities under the sun.

  • Jared Lucero

    Jared is the co-founder, co-host, and instructor of Lucero Surf Retreats.

This retreat will take place in the town of Santa Teresa in Costa Rica. It is a small popular beach village on the Pacific coast. The beautiful white sand beaches you will find here are known for some of the best surf breaks in the entire country, with great surf conditions all year round which is ideal for surfers of any level. This booming travel destination offers a pristine jungle view from the beach with no big buildings anywhere.

The rustic beauty of this town comes with one road that runs from the southern part of the town of Malpais up to the beach town of Playa Hermosa and further, parallel from the beach. Many amazing restaurants and quaint hotels are spread out across town on either sides of this road. This, in combination with clear blue water, white sand, and palm trees in the background, truly makes you feel like you are surfing in paradise.

All daily breakfasts and lunches are included in the price of this retreat. These meals will be provided at the accommodating hotel and prepared with fresh local ingredients. For breakfast, you can choose real Italian espresso or creamy cappuccino, delicious homemade cakes, tropical fruit salad, pancakes, or American-style food. The menu always provides an array of vegetarian, meat, and seafood options.

During your free time, there are other available activities near the camp like fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, and zip lining. Lucero Surf Retreats can help you organize a series of activities or excursions at an additional cost.

You can also choose to join optional morning group runs on the beach. The mornings in Santa Teresa are beautiful and perfect for an early work-out. Running together can be motivating and you will be so happy that you started your day off this way.

You can also choose to join a camp fire and music session on the beach. Every Sunday, there is a restaurant and bar at the north end of Santa Teresa that hosts Pura Sonica, a gathering of locals and tourists to celebrate with good food, good music, and a camp fire for sunset.

One massage session is included in the price of this retreat to relax, relieve, and invigorate tired muscles after a few days of surfing.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) or Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO).

It is easier to fly into San Jose but sometimes, flights to Liberia are a lot cheaper which makes it a better choice to fly in instead. From both airports, it´s about the same distance to get to Santa Teresa but from San Jose, you have more transfer options.

From San Jose, you can book a domestic flight to arrive at Tambor Airport (TMU). Flights last for about 20 minutes and cost around 90 USD. The two airlines that fly from San Jose to Tambor are Sansa and Nature Air.

Arrival by bus

For the more adventurous traveler, there is the option to take a direct bus to Santa Teresa from San Jose. It leaves from the Coca Cola bus station at 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. The trip takes five hours including a one-hour ferry ride when you get to the pier. A ticket costs 10 USD for one way. Even though this option is a little more challenging because you have to take a taxi to the bus station and then make sure to find the right bus, once you're on the bus, it is a direct shot and you don´t have to worry about your luggage or changing buses.

Arrival by taxi

From Tambor, expect a 45-minute taxi ride that costs approximately 50 USD for one to four people. There will be an extra fee of 10 USD for each additional person.

Arrival by shuttle

From San Jose, you can also take a shuttle to Santa Teresa. It will pick you up from the airport or your hotel and take you directly to meet up with the Lucero team. The trip is for about four to five hours including a one-hour ferry ride. The price is 45 USD per person and the shuttle leaves at 9 a.m. If you would like to leave at a different time, the price is 200 USD for a private shuttle that can take up to seven people.

    Heerlijk relaxte vakantie

    PROS Pro's: Marieke en Jared doen er alles aan om je verblijf zo fijn mogelijk te maken. Super fijne ontvangst, persoonlijk programma met het beste wat Santa Teresa te bieden heeft en altijd bereid om te helpen. Zonder het gevoel te hebben dat ik op een "georganiseerde reis" was. Heb een heerlijke week gehad en blij dat ik heb leren surfen! Dit was zeker niet de laatste keer!

    "My family of six chose to go to Costa Rica to have an active vacation and learn to surf. We were not disappointed. Marieke and Jared are super helpful and my kids absolutely loved it. We had so much fun that we extended our vacation for six days. The travel out to Santa Teresa was challenging so I highly recommend flying from San Jose to the nearby airport. Lucero will arrange all of this for you. Santa Teresa is fairly rustic with its dirt roads so it takes some getting used to, but the community and the beach are worth it."

    "Marieke and Jared made our trip incredibly easy and convenient, while giving us the security of having local community experts in our corner. We knew which places to go to, how to interact with our surroundings, and had the best possible vacation that we could have asked for. A hundred thanks to Marieke and Jared, our new friends that we'll most definitely be returning to at the next opportunity. I know I can be picky and annoying at times, but every question and request was answered and fulfilled without missing a beat. I call them the Zen masters of customer service! Please do yourself a favor and have the best possible people in your corner for a personalized, professional, and ridiculously fun Costa Rican adventure!"

    "While I never imagined having someone who I never met before provide me with all the information, and hold our hands through any and everything we wanted to do, that was exactly what we got from Lucero. Jared and Marieke ensured that my friends and I had a trip that we would never forget. If you want to truly have quite the Santa Teresa experience, then this is your one-stop shop."

    "I travel a lot for work, and I get to meet tons of people from all different walks of life all over the world. Marieke and Jared were two of the kindest and most helpful people I have ever come across. From the moment I first reached out to Marieke via email, she was responsive, polite, and very knowledgeable about the Santa Teresa area. "


    "I've always wanted to go to Costa Rica, and I did a whole bunch of research to figure out what the best spot would be. I chose Santa Teresa because it sounded remote, beautiful, adventurous, and great for surfing. It really and truly was a beautiful place. I traveled to Costa Rica with six of my best friends, and came across Lucero via TripAdvisor and random google exploration."


    "As it turned out, we ended up utilizing Lucero for a surf and yoga vacation and not lodging since we had a big group and it was a busy time of the year. Marieke was totally okay with this arrangement and still helped throughout the booking process. She set us up with both flights from San Jose International to Tambor, as well as with transfers to and from the airport and our house rental."


    "The surf lessons were an absolute blast. We were all first timers and we were all standing up and riding waves the very first day. I was lucky enough to have been chosen by Daniel to be his student on the first day, and he was probably the best skill development teacher I have ever had in my entire life. He was extremely talented and I could feel that he truly wanted me to both succeed and to feel the same love for surfing that he obviously holds in his heart. I'm totally hooked!"


    "On the yoga side, Lauren was an amazing instructor as well, and she put up with my groups' continuous "early morning flu" symptoms as well. When we were sore and beaten from surfing, she would let us practice yin yoga to stretch our tired bodies."


    "Jared acted as a hands-on concierge throughout the entirety of the trip. He took us on a ridiculous day trip to Montezuma where we got to go swimming and cliff jumping at the waterfalls, and we hiked through the jungle canopy on suspension bridges as well. Originally from New Jersey, Jared has had his fair share of travelling as well, and its readily apparent that he has developed a deep appreciation for Costa Rica. We were lucky enough to get to spend time with him and Marieke after hours and to meet their two adorable daughters also."


    "Lucero also set my group up with quad rentals to get from our house rental in Mal Pais around the town and to Playa Hermosa and Santa Teresa where we were surfing every day. When I go back to Costa Rica, which will be sooner rather than later, I will most definitely utilize Lucero again because it truly was one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. I am happy to call Marieke and Jared my friends."

    "It means a lot to me to not only travel and seek out new adventures, but also to meet great people along the way. Marieke and Jared are an awesome couple who went out of their way to provide clients a once in lifetime experience surfing and exploring Santa Teresa, Mal Pais, and Montezuma in Costa Rica. Jared was an amazing surf coach. He was super patient and very knowledgeable about the best waves for us to catch. Marieke had a great itinerary ready to go everyday, complete with great dining options and places to view the sunsets. I am very excited to go back."
