Rapture Surf Camp
Avellanas, Costa Rica.

Rapture Surfcamps is located in Playa Avellanas, a 20-min drive away from Costa Rica’s party center, Tamarindo. Our Costa Rica surf camp consists of a big, modern building with an indoor communal area and an outdoor patio leading to tropical gardens.

Close to best surf breaks and the vibrant nightlife in Playa Tamarindo

In addition to our excellent local surf breaks, which are easily accessible on foot and meet all skill levels, other hidden gems such as Playa Langosta, Playa Grande and Playa Negra (mostly known from the surf movie Endless Summer II) are all accessible in minutes from camp. We offer shuttle services and bike rentals if you want to explore the other surf spots in the area.

Tamarindo is famous for being the party capital of the Guanacaste region. In case you are in need of a major post-surfing fiesta, we can organize a shuttle that will take you there in 20 minutes so you don’t have to worry about driving after a few drinks.

Pura Vida at its best in Costa Rica

In addition to the countless bars and clubs, there are plenty of other things to discover in Tamarindo. You can go snorkeling or scuba diving and explore the colorful underwater life at the nearby reefs. Take a stroll at the big Palo Verde National Park or experience the high speeds of a zipline ride above the treetops of the jungle, swim beneath waterfalls at Llanos de Cortez and if you have skills on a skateboard, drop the skate bowl at Playa Negra.

Surf, chill and enjoy life in Playa Avellanas

All rooms are spacious and freshly renovated with big windows, air conditioning, and mosquito nets. From 6-bed bunk-rooms to double rooms for couples with private balconies, we have accommodations to suit all needs. The full bar mixes cooling refreshments all day. Locally-sourced home-made breakfast and dinner are prepared in the kitchen by our camp chefs. Check out the mouth-watering recipes they serve in our Food section or come taste them yourself.

Besides surfing we also offer daily yoga sessions, which you can enjoy on our pool deck surrounded by lush jungle trees.

How to get to the Rapture Surf Camp in Costa Rica

In Playa Avellanas we are a 10min walk to the beach through a beautiful mangrove forest where you can observe plenty of wildlife. Our surf camp is right across from Cabinas Las Olas and on your left before you reach the right turn to Lola’s. Take the left turn towards Vida Verde, then you’ll see the signs towards Rapture. A 4×4 vehicle is not needed, high clearance is optional, it is a dirt road indeed but completely passable with a sedan or compact car even during the rainy season, just go slow and stay in low gear.
