Costa Rica Surf Camp & Yoga Retreat for Women


You have reached the right place!

Surf Diva was the first surf school for women in 1996 and the first all-women surf camp in Costa Rica in 2004. Our boutique Costa Rica Retreats are tailored for you, if you are looking for a unique and personal vacation experience.

Surfing will play a big role during your week at the ultimate tropical paradise, but there is more, a lot more! 

Each day during your Surf Diva Retreat will start with a cup (or two) of freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee, hand squeezed orange juice, and a bowl of locally grown tropical fruit. Grab your board, walk along the quiet jungle path to check the surf with your instructor, and head out for the first surf lesson of the day. There’s something magical about the morning “dawn patrol” session—the town is still sleepy, the water is warm and glassy, and the waves are perfect. 

We promise first-class coaching that has given Surf Diva the reputation as the world's #1 surf school for women. Our team of professionally qualified surf instructors will help you to achieve your surfing goals and will make you feel totally comfortable in the ocean, no matter if you just started, or if you are working on your cutbacks or hang-10s!

When you come back from the beach, brunch is ready! Enjoy a satisfying Costa Rican brunch and recap the surf session with your fellow Surf Divas. After some hammock time, you will head to your surfer’s yoga class. Breath, stretch, and gently strengthen your muscles with the best and most experienced yoga instructors in town.

As the sun sinks and paints everything a warm, golden glow, you will greet the ocean once again for your second surf session of the day. Stroll back to your resort as the sun disappears beyond the horizon, then freshen up and throw on a cute sundress for dinner. No need to stress about reservations! Throughout the week, our instructors will introduce you to Surf Diva's favorite restaurants and bars in town. Don't be surprised if everybody knows you by name by the end of the week, and you feel like a local!

On top of surfing, yoga, and indulging in local cuisine, you will have an opportunity mid-week to take an afternoon off and unwind with some diva-like spa treatment with an unwinding massage.

By the end of the week, you’ll be wishing you could fit the laid-back Pura Vida lifestyle into your suitcase. Your week with Surf Diva in Nosara will be unforgettable.

We want this to be a personal Surf Diva experience from the beginning!
