Your Private Surf Vacation:

We pride ourselves on creating a travel experience without the hassles of traveling alone.
We will coordinate all phases of the travel itinerary to maximize fun!

Our representatives will accompany you during the week to guide you to the places and activities that you want.

Our primary intention is that after a safe, fun week, you will say, "That was the best trip I've ever been on, I can't wait to go back."

You will travel to the airport to be determined and fly directly to Liberia, Costa Rica.  Once in Liberia, you will take a private transfer to Tamarindo.  The hotel, The Vista Villas, is located at the north end of Tamarindo, a perfect little beach town full of restaurants, bars, shops and amazing people.  Accommodations are based on triple or double occupancy. (single rooms are available at a $300 premium).

The amazing staff at the Vista Villas can arrange any excursion you would like, and three are included with the package; the 1 hour ATV beach and jungle tour, the Rin Con De La Vieja Mega Combo Tour, and the Marlin Del Rey Catamaran Sunset Snorkeling tour.  

Or, for pure surfers a sailboat excursion to Witches Rock and Ollies Point for two days and one night.  We also supply rental cars for groups for day trips and surf excursions.

A few highlights from a typical Pura Vida week are; traveling to Rin Con De La Vieja for an all-day rainforest excursion featuring zip lining, a natural water slide, lunch, horseback riding and mud baths and hot springs.

For New surfers, learning to surf in Tamarindo Bay will change your life.  For more advanced surfers, you will be surfing 10 hours a day at one of the five world-class breaks within 20 min of the hotel.

You can wrap up the week with a sunset catamaran snorkeling excursion on board the Marlin Del Rey.  You will sail to a secluded bay, snorkel, have lunch, and sail back home into Tamarindo Bay, during a majestic sunset.  A once in a lifetime opportunity.
