Zopilote Surf Camp: A Surfers Paradise in Costa Rica

In 2005 we fell in love with Costa Rica and the surf vibe. We realized our dreams by creating Zopilote Surf Camp on the Nicoya Peninsula – A camp designed by surfers for surfers. Our camp is located on Playa Hermosa, just a few minutes north of Santa Teresa. It is one of the quietest, cleanest and most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. This area is known for consistent surf all year long, with waves for all skills levels. Whether you are looking for an easy wave for beginners or steep walls and barrel rides, Playa Hermosa is a dreamlike, diverse beach break that will leave you breathless. (Swell forecast) And the best thing is, it’s only a two minute walk that separates you from the waves and the white sandy beach. Without having to adapt to a shuttle bus timetable, you can plan your sessions freely and independently -- surf whenever you feel like it. Find yourself on a deserted dream beach before dawn and experience picturesque sunsets to end the day. Check out the waves at any time of the day or treat yourself to a relaxed break in the hammock or in the camp’s own pool. Live and surf to your rhythm in the Zopilote Surf Camp. Pura Vida! Simon
