Begin your tour with a hotel pickup from your centrally located Manuel Antonio hotel around 8 a.m. for a morning tour or 2 p.m. for an afternoon tour (exact time advised upon reconfirmation). Climb aboard an air-conditioned van for a short drive to two picturesque beaches on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.
Upon reaching each beach, grab a board and learn to surf alongside locals at beaches like Matapalo Beach and Playa Linda, two spots virtually untouched by tourism. Whether you’re a total beginner or a surf bum, the instructor will provide individual attention to help you reach your goals, from popping up for the first time to getting pitted in a barrel wave.
Between a surf lesson at each beach, explore on shore, ride body boards, and play games organized by your tour guide for a guaranteed good time. There will also be free time for you to relax in hammocks strung between palm trees and lie in the sand. Throughout the tour, keep refreshed with coconuts, tropical fruits, and cold water.
Recharge from a full day in the sun with a typical Costa Rican meal, like rice, beans, and meat, and then return to your hotel roughly five hours after pickup.
