The region of Central America where Costa Rica and Nicaragua join is a magical place with stunning beaches, friendly people, and some of the best surfing in the world. With warm water and perfect waves, this is the ideal place to learn to surf or to advance to the next level of surfing.
Our Central America Surf Adventure explores the best beaches for beginner and intermediate surfers, with excursions to fabulous 'secret' spots where we may even have the waves to ourselves. Take a break from surfing to discover the beauty of Costa Rica as we take a guided walk through mangrove wetlands and old-growth forest or to see the Olive Ridley sea turtle nesting grounds. In Nicaragua, we'll step back in time and visit a historical colonial Spanish city near the shores of Lake Nicaragua. Evenings will be spent in stylish hotels as we enjoy the local seafood and relax after full days of adventure.

Our Central America Surfing Adventure is ideal for those wanting to learn to surf or develop their surfing skills in two world-class surfing destinations. They are perfect for those wanting to experience Costa Rica's wildlife and tropical forests as well as Nicaragua's laid back beaches and culturally rich towns, and rather than just staying at one beach, as many surf camps do. They are ideal for those wanting warm weather & water, boutique accommodation, and a total Central American surf experience.
Please note there is likely to be an hour or two of rain in the afternoons, especially in the summer. We offer this trip year-round, other than the wettest months of September and October.
