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.
Our Playa Tamarindo Teen Camp has both an Overnight (Residential) Camp option and a Day Camp option. All students attend 4 hours/day of level-appropriate Spanish lessons and lunch, Monday through Friday. Both camp options are composed of the same basic daily structure and itinerary, plus three different afternoon activities from which to choose: Surf, Adventure and Intensive Spanish.
In addition to the above schedule of lessons and activities, residential campers also receive lodging at our camp compound, all meals, a two-day weekend adventure tour, 24-hour supervision and accident/travel insurance. We offer Airport pick-up and drop-off service for all students and families.
