If you are looking to learn to surf or improve your existing skills in one of the most beautiful locations in Costa Rica, search no more.

Our half pension Women's Surf Retreats are lead by local female surfer Debbie Zec in her home town Dominical beach, in the South Pacific of Costa Rica. 

As a former professional surfer and with 17 years of experience coaching people from all over the world, you can trust that you have come to the right place.

Together with her team of surf coaches and hosts you will be guided through a full Costa Rican experience, with much pride and excitement to show you the best that their beloved town has to offer!

What is a women's surf camp?

Our Women's Surf Camp in Costa Rica, it's a surf vacation designed exclusively for women.

It is a space for connection with like-minded ladies, a place where you can bring your inner child out, play in the the waves, have fun, challenge yourself,  but also, a space where you can breath, relax, and just be at ease. Forget about the hecticness of daily life while immersing in living the pure life 'the pura vida' as we call it.


Besides surfing, we offer a range of group activities during the week. Whether you join them, or prefer to stay reading a book in your hammock. It's your choice, you are the boss of your time ;) 


Paradise at the reach of your hands with all its possibilities!
