The surf camp was such an incredible Worldpackers experience! It really has the vibe of solo travel hostel and adult summer camp combined. The work was simple and quick and the people were amazing - definitely the kind of experience that draws in fun, kind, and curious humans who want a community experience. If you're on the fence, go!!

Such an incredible experience! The vibe was living in a college campus with no homework or classes. My favorite part was getting to know all the people. You meet people from all over the world and they quickly become life long friends. Also, and obviously, I learned how to surf which was super cool!! The lessons really helped me and although I'm no pro I'm confident enough to ride some waves. The food by the chef was amazing, the dogs are adorable, the job is so quick & easy, and the town is a dream. I miss tamarindo and dream sea. Just go. You won't regret it, trust me.

I really enjoyed my experience here! This is a great place to meet new people and be in touch with nature. The staff were all amazing and they truly do what they can to make your experience a great one. This was my first solo travel experience and I felt very safe. Most of the other people at camp were solo travelers as well which made it really easy to bond with people. I would tell anyone to come to the surf camp!
