We are Surf Samara

Elena and Douglas from the surf samara team

We are a surf-crazed Costa Rican-Swiss couple who fell in love with Samara a long time ago. Surf Samara is born from the idea of infusing the surfing experience with the cultural experience that is living in Samara. An embracing community that will make you feel at home, Samara is in the middle of a surf-rich area where you will be able to improve your surfing while simultaneously immersing yourself in the Tico lifestyle.
We believe in creating rich and meaningful memories, and transmitting our surfing values, ideals and ways of engaging with nature to our guests in forms they can apply to all aspects of their life. We want to share our passion for waves and for this beautiful place with you!

Our place

Pool and shared dining area

Our place lies a little outside of Samara on a small hilltop, surrounded by a huge and beautiful tropical garden. The newly built pool is the perfect place to relax after your surf sessions. Our unique, rustic treehouses are built on piles. From the terrace you can spot wildlife or just chill in the hammock. Breakfast and dinner are served in the  rancho, which is also a perfect spot for our Yoga lessons. You can cruise to the center of Samara or the beach on our bikes in about 5 minutes (1.6 KM).

C.R.E.A.R is a local non-profit working in the rural areas around Samara which seeks to provide the local children with activities and workshops for social, academic and career growth in a venue where they can explore their interests through creative art-education initiatives while developing skills that can expand their future opportunities.

A percentage of the cost of every surfcamp goes to helping C.R.E.A.R in continuing their amazing labor.
