Surfing in Nosara Guanacaste

Friendly, long waves, left and rights, warm crystalline waters, and offshore winds topped by a lush jungle along the unspoiled, beautiful, soft sand shoreline, is what sets Playa Guiones in Nosara apart from other Costa Rica surf towns. Named one of the top places to surf in the world, by National Geographic magazine, Nosara is the perfect spot whether you are a hardcore surfer or want to take your first surf lesson.

For those searching for surfing lessons or surf camps in Costa Rica, Nosara is an excellent choice. With its consistent year-round swells and a friendly line-up beach break, Nosara is an endless summer paradise with surfing that is fun for any level.

If you have never surfed, are little rusty, or want to improve your skills, selecting the best surf instructors might be the most important part of your planning.  Olas Verdes Hotel has teamed up with Safari Surf School, the first and one of the best surf schools in Nosara. Safari Surf, an Official Billabong Surf School, has been in business for over 16 years and has been awarded “Best Outfitter on Earth” by National Geographic.

Staying at Olas Verdes hotel is like being at an upscale surf camp! You will be pampered in peace and comfort while creating unforgettable vacation memories. The professional instructors at Safari Surf School are not only International Surfing Association (ISA) Certified, but are also the most experienced and passionate instructors with an authentic “Pura Vida” style!  Surf students at Olas Verdes rave about them because they take the time to teach, helping each individual reach his or her goal, which might be standing up on the surfboard, experiencing the thrill of riding their very first wave, or dropping in and getting air on a head high beast.

If you plan to include some adventure with your surfing during your Costa Rica vacation, visit Nosara in Guanacaste any time of the year. However, for the experienced surfer wanting extreme surf sessions in Nosara, Ostional, Marbella and other great Guanacaste surf spots, we recommend visiting us from November to April.
