Surf Camp Costa Rica
Just North of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa, in the highly desirable beach town of “Playa Hermosa”.
Shaka Beach Retreat is the premier surf camp Costa Rica and is your perfect solution for a hassle-free tropical escape, with a dose of challenge and adventure. Our surf camp Costa Rica offers daily lessons for guests of all levels of experience and skill. From first-timers who’ve never paddled out on a board to lifelong wave-shredders looking to up their game to the next level, Shaka offers a fun and informative surfing experience.
It’s a world-class operation with some of the most experienced, professional, friendly and fun instructors of any surf camp Costa Rica has to offer. You can chose from surf camp Costa Rica packages varying from a couple days to multiple weeks, with as much or as little surfing included as you can handle. We also offer yoga retreats with daily beachside classes from well-trained expert yogis. And once you’ve had enough of the surf, our villas offer a perfect environment to relax and recover from the day’s adventures on the water. From lush tropical gardens to our open-air rancho, which includes a fully-equipped entertainment area, Shaka is an ideal place to chill out until you’re ready to paddle out again.
Shaka Beach & Surf Retreat of Costa Rica is a private tropical haven nestled in lush jungle surroundings, home to a diverse array of local flora and fauna including monkeys, birds, and native fruit trees. We offer luxurious, spacious villas, Costa Rica yoga retreat and surf camp Costa Rica packages at an affordable price. Our boutique hotel is an alluring example of modern tropical architecture, designed to be used individually or together as one “house.”
The gated, close grouping of private teak-lined villas is perfect for accommodating family gatherings, close friends, honeymooners, or private surf retreats. Additionally, our open-air palm rancho and complete kitchen provide a private dining and entertainment area. A short walk leads to one of the most beautiful tranquil white sand beaches in all of Costa Rica. Perfect for swimming, relaxing on the sand, and learning to surf. Enjoy a sunset (or sunrise) under the swaying palms at this safe, sandy, family-friendly beach break.
Shaka’s surf vacations blend the relaxing comfort of a luxury beach retreat with the exciting and exhilarating experience of riding some of the world’s most consistant waves. Our camp is run by professionals and experienced surfers who know how to give clients the surf vacations they want. We have packages for surf vacations that are as diverse as our clients – from families with kids of all ages to honeymooners to Wall Street brokers and their colleagues.
We can custom create packages for surf vacations and yoga vacations that range from a couple days to multiple weeks. Shaka is located in northern Santa Teresa, a quaint, funky, fun town with abundant cultural opportunities, delicious cuisine and night-life scenes. But in our luxurious beachside villas, you might think you’re on your own private island. They are tranquil and private, constructed in the native style and built to perfection, yet they also offer modern amenities, like AC, hot water, private bathrooms, free wireless internet and a 24-hour staff that is here to make sure your surf vacation experience is perfect. It’s the best of both worlds.
