Lucero Surf Camp has vacation packages including Surf lessons, Morning Yoga, Accommodations, Cuisine, Activities and more.

Lucero Surf invites you to discover a tropical paradise on Costa Rica’s untamed Pacific Coast - where warm consistent waves hit the beautiful beach of Santa Teresa waiting to be surfed, where howler monkeys wake you up to morning yoga, and fresh, organic food will leave you feeling healthy and revived. The retreat is great for groups or couples that want to have a good time together with an ‘off-the-beaten’ path approach or individuals that prefer to fly solo in the face of new adventure and want to make some new friends.

Located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast on the Nicoya Peninsula, Lucero Surf is in the blooming village of Santa Teresa which is situated in the middle of Costa Rica's surfing mecca. What was once just five years ago a dirt road and a few small hostels is now brimming with international tourists and worldwide wave-chasers!

Guests of Lucero Surf Retreats will be staying at an exclusive beautiful-resort- Otro lado, only 25 meters from the ocean. Otro Lado has luxurious little villas that can accommodate up to four guests. Surrounded by a tropical lush garden, the resort has a pool to cool off in and a small restaurant to enjoy your breakfast and lunches. In the morning the nice wooden floor of the restaurant turns into a private yoga studio!

Included Activities at Lucero Surf Retreats

Surfing is a unique experience that can be considered both an art form and an athletic pursuit. It is a lifestyle and a great recreational activity that is not only a lot of fun but also promotes physical fitness, great health, alleviates and relieves stress. The lapping waves of Santa Teresa's pristine beaches await your attention. Perfect for beginners to those with more intermediate skills, our surf instructors have chased waves all over the world and know exactly how to teach you the skills of catching a wave in a safe and fun way. If you have no experience with surfing, no problem.there's no better place in the world to learn. To do so, your program will provide you with personalized instruction every day. Unlike other surf camps, we prefer to keep it small- in doing so, we keep the attention on personalized service during the surf classes.

Montezuma Waterfalls
Just a short drive away, lies the beautiful Montezuma Waterfalls. One of the most famous attractions on the Nicoya Peninsula, no trip would be complete without a splash in its pure water. Offering a flexible itinerary, Lucero’s guide will escort guests on a day outing into its quaint fishing village.

Massage and Healing
As part of the program, you'll receive a one-hour personal relaxation session. Our instructor offers not only massage therapy but is also certified in Reiki Healing. You can pick which option best appeals to your individual needs.

No trip to Costa Rica would be complete without the morning sun on your face and a relaxing yoga session. At Lucero Surf Retreats, we offer our own private studio. Daily yoga sessions are included in your package. The purpose of these sessions is to not only relax you but also prepare your body for all the physical challenges of surfing. We seek to build your core strength, increase flexibility, and open your mind to new possibilities.

Tidal Pools
One of the compelling features of Santa Teresa is the beautiful tidal pools scattered down the beach. Some are hidden and some lie directly in front of Lucero Surf Retreats.

"Lucero Surf Retreat was an absolutely amazing experience. The staff is fabulous, the food is amazing, and the scenery is unbelievable.

Everyone is so laid back and warm. There's always something to do, but it's totally cool if you don't feel like doing anything. The surf instructors are great teachers and make it all really fun to learn, especiallly for beginners. The yoga is relaxing and compliments the surfing really nicely.

Then there's the food. Kari is a genius. It's amazing.

The woman who runs it, Marieke, is such a fantastic hostess. You feel immediately at home.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. "
