“Room for 26 people, spread over 9 gorgeous rooms”

At Pura Vida Surf Lodge, there is a solution for groups of all sizes, ranging from single rooms to bunk dorms. All rooms have their own features, whether it’s a private bathroom or secluded balcony. Small touches like using wooden bunks to avoid annoying squeaky roommates show how much this family has invested in making your stay comfortable.

“5 minutes away from beginner and advanced waves”

Along with hours of expertly coached surfing lessons, you are also be provided with a vital and in-depth theory lesson. One of the key components to learning to surf is understanding such things as how the waves work. Not many surf schools offer this kind of inclusive deal! The area is popular among surfers but a short bike ride further down the beach and you’ll always find the right wave for your skillset.

If surfing and relaxing on the beach isn’t enough for you, perhaps the heated swimming pool is, or maybe the daily yoga classes?
