Surf Diva Surf School is known worldwide for its excellent surf instruction and coaching. First established in La Jolla in 1996, Surf Diva is the original surf school for women. For almost 20 years, Surf Diva has been teaching thousands of women, men and kids to surf from all over the world.

Surf Diva surf instructors are all CPR and First Aid certified and go through an intensive selection and training process before they graduate to the Surf Diva Instructor Team. During the Costa Rica Retreats we apply this expertise together with local surf knowledge to a unique tropical surfing experience. Surf Diva stands firm by a ratio of one instructor to every five surfers. By keeping our groups small, we ensure that you will get a lot of individual attention to best improve your surfing.

Our goal is to provide you with such a memorable and fun adventure that you won't want to leave! The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun!

During the week you will get a full body massage to relax and relieve all of your surfing & dancing muscles. The Diva’s favorite massage spa welcomes you for a 60-minute dream. Lights are turned low and soothing scents permeate the room to allow you to relax to your fullest. The therapists at the spa are especially trained in after sport massage, that helps rejuvenate sore muscles. You are free to come back and sign up for more, after this complementary treatment.

There really is no better way to stretch your muscles both before and after surfing than yoga. At Surf Diva, we believe yoga is an integral part of the surf as well as the Costa Rica experience! Between your morning and afternoon surf, you will have the opportunity to relax with some light yoga and special surfer’s stretch with our qualified yoga instructor.

The class is designed to be a relaxing stretch to get you ready for surfing in the afternoon and to relieve sore muscles. It is not intended as an intensive yoga workout. We want to leave you with enough energy for surfing. The class is held in a beautiful outdoor setting just steps away from your accommodations.

Should you wish to join a more intensive yoga workout, there are several  non-complementary classes available through the yoga studio.

Nosara is a sleepy beach town, yet a great place to explore, shop and enjoy Costa Rica’s Pura Vida. Step out of the resort into a wonderful tropical paradise. Take your time stop to smell vibrant flowers, listen to the monkeys in the trees and flavor a fresh coconut. Make sure to open your tab at the coconut booth the first day! Get in touch with the locals, discover some colorful arts and crafts.

The afternoons are made to spend at the organic juice bar or the pool. Wander Playa Guiones!
