Perfect surf in all sizes - yours at Playa Avellanas

Playa Avellanas, possibly the best surf spot on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, is waiting for you. With no tourists, wide sandy beaches, turquoise water and perfect waves, this camp truly is a hidden gem. You’ll live in the middle of the jungle surrounded by pristine nature. Just a short walk to the beach, and yet only a few kilometers away from legendary Tamarindo. The surf camp is close to a beach that offers not one or two, but five surf spots. No matter if you are a rookie or an expert – here you will get your money’s worth. Surfing, diving, wildlife watching, day trips, boat excursions, jungle walks, party nights or just a calm place to relax: at Rapture Surfcamps Costa Rica you can do it all.

All things considered, Playa Avellanas is a surfer’s paradise! The white sandy beach is surrounded by mangrove forests. Water temperature is 27 degrees Celsius on average year-round, making wetsuits obsolete. You can peacefully enjoy breaks between surf sessions under the palm trees.

Whether you are a beginner or have plenty of surfing experience, our surf guides and the instructors at our surf school know every break by heart. They will take you to the best spot for your level depending on tides and weather conditions. If you are taking surf lessons, our instructors will first teach you the basics in surf theory class. Afterwards, they will advise you on which break suits your skill level. They’ll show you how to pop up onto the board for the first time or how to improve your existing skills and get from riding to ripping. Moreover, our rental fleet consists of new epoxy and fiberglass boards in all shapes and sizes to suit your surfing needs and wishes.
