Playa Tamarindo is located on the Northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica and is a world-famous surfing destination with different breaks, ideal for surfers of all levels and abilities, from beginner to advanced. Because of the great year-round weather, proximity to numerous beaches and protected forests, this area of Costa Rica is the perfect place to experience adventure tourism at its best. We will explore the surrounding natural wonders of the Guanacaste Province, we will raft down mountain rivers, zip line through forest canopies, horseback ride on white sand beaches, sea kayak to pristine islands, swim in crystal blue bays and hike to towering waterfalls.
Besides the adventure activities, surf and Spanish lessons, we’ll have cultural activities such as Latin dance classes and cooking classes. We are also committed to help protect the beauty and natural environment of Costa Rica. To give back, all students will participate in a beach clean-up each Friday.
No prior Spanish experience is necessary to join, although it does help! Students will be separated into age and level appropriate Spanish classes.
Students can attend the camp as an overnight/residential camper (for students traveling without adults) or as a day camper (for students traveling with adults). Day campers attend all activities in the itinerary from Monday through Friday, 8am to 6pm.
Note: All main afternoon activities (Volunteer, Surf, Adventure, or Intensive Spanish), evening activities and weekend tours can be added for the additional price of the specific activity.
