Spend 8 days chasing the swell to the end of the Osa Peninsula!
This is the best way to get quality waves in Costa Rica. Just sit back and let your private chauffeur drive you to your surf destination.
Days 1 and 2 – You get picked up at the San Jose airport and ride to Dominical (3 hours) to spend the first night. It’s a two minute walk to the surf so you can get in a surf session before dark if your flight arrives before noon, and there’s time for a dawn patrol the next morning. Get treated to an amazing breakfast before heading to Pavones (3 hours), where you will stay in the most comfortable place in town. It’s a five minute walk to the main peak, so we will have an extended afternoon session before dinner, when we will plan out the next five days. Depending on the swell and your skill level we can determine the best places and times to surf.
Days 3 to 6 – You will feel yourself unwind, getting into the routine of surf/eat/sleep. This is when the massage included will help take away sore paddling muscles. In Pavones, there are some delicious dining options like La Bruschetta (homemade authentic Italian) and Cafe de la Suerte (big healthy breakfasts and smoothies). You can walk to a nearby waterfall, take a yoga class, or catch your dinner on the Rio Claro. On one of the days we will take a small boat over to Matapalo to sample the waves on the other side of the Osa Peninsula, plus get a chance to see whales, dolphins, and turtles along the way. On another day we will visit Punto Banco, a beach break with offshore rock formations that create consistent waves and can be bigger than Pavones.
Day 7 – After a morning surf session and breakfast, you will be driven up to Playa Hermosa to spend your last night in Costa Rica (5 hours). Your lodging is beachfront so you will get one last session before catching your flight home. Dinner options are steps away at Vista Hermosa or Bowie’s Point or the Backyard restaurant
Day 8 – If your flight is later than 12 noon you get have time for a dawn patrol before packing up for your trip back to San Jose (1.5 hours) Your driver will stop on the way to the airport if you want to pick up some last minute snacks or gifts.
