Location

Find peace, passion and perfect beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula. Separated from mainland Costa Rica by the Gulf of Nicoya and the Tempisque estuary. The southern tip of the peninsula is secluded, sleepy, and surfing heaven. You will find that the beach town of Santa Teresa has transformed itself into a booming surfer’s paradise, with plenty of expatriates and activity. For the rest of your trip, you will have no problem finding peace and tranquillity as you explore the waterfalls of Montezuma, the fishing hamlet of Malpais, or the Cabo Blanco Reserve. With rainforests, abundant flora and fauna, and fabulous beaches there is always something to see and do. There are regular buses from San Jose to Mal Pais / Santa Teresa. If you are arriving in Costa Rica by international flight then Take a taxi to the bus terminal 7/10 in downtown San Jose where direct buses (Transporte Cobano) leave to Mal Pais/Santa Teresa at 6:00 am and 2:00 pm every day (costs about $16 US$). Leave the bus in Cobano and take a taxi to Manzanillo (20US$). The entire trip will take around 6 hours. If you want a more convenient and faster travel option with more expense - take a local flight from San Jose to Tambor (25 min.) From there you have to take a taxi to our surf camp (1h, 50US$).

Food

Live long and prosper – it may surprise you to find out that the Nicoya Peninsula is a world longevity hot-spot (aka, blue zone). Nicoyans live longer and healthier than most of us, a large part of this is their fabulous diet. Home-made corn tortillas are a dietary staple, combined with black beans, white rice, fruit and eggs. Hand-picked fruit is a way-of-life on the Nicoyan peninsula and you will relish the options - mango, papaya, passion fruit, guava, zapote, coconut, pineapple, cantaloupe, blackberries, lemons and limes, are only the tip of the iceberg. Carnivores need not worry as you can also enjoy plenty of meat including succulent chicken, pork and seafood. Of course, Costa Rica is well known for its coffee and you will find this is the regular hot-drink of your day. To be enjoyed in cafes and restaurants dotted about the peninsula.
