Jaco Beach is a popular jump-off point for surfers traveling to Costa Rica, being that it is only a two hour (approx) drive from San Jose. You can get off the plane and be surfing on in the same day!
Jaco is very close to Hermosa and Playa Escondida, two breaks that consistently have excellent surf. It is one of the most bustling beach/surf towns in Costa, as there is actually something to do at night. There are several bars and Discos, and the restaurants always seem to have an old surf video in the DVD. It's a very surfer friendly town.
Our goal is to educate locals and tourist on the sport of surfing. We will provide the tools for a safe surf session, our certified instructors will walk you through the process of learning the sport and our warm waters will be the door to a new world.
Afterwards enjoy relaxing on the beach under an umbrella or enjoy surfing the rest of the day. You´ll have surf board access for the rest of the day so you can come and go as you please. Food and beverages will be available at the local restaurant on the beach.
Keep in mind that we are one of only a couple of surf schools that have certified instructors and lifeguards...not just some monkey on the beach.
