If you want the best accommodations, the best surf instructors, the best hosts and the best vacation ever, then Peaks 'N Swells is the the place for you. It is essentially a "boutique" surf camp, and you will not believe the level of service and personal attention provided. We booked Peaks 'N Swells to celebrate my husband's birthday, because it has always been his dream to surf. Our 13 year old was gung ho as well. Sadly, our 10 year old and I had no interest in surfing and were basically afraid of the ocean. Amazingly, we all surfed (got up the first day), learned a lot, and had an extraordinary time. The camp is structured so that there is one coach or helper per one or two students. The two professional coaches are the best in the Nicoya peninsula. They both run their own surf businesses, but coach Peaks 'N Swells when camp is in session. The coaches were so skillful and supportive that I never felt out of my comfort zone. An added bonus is that we came home with hundreds of amazing photos without ever having to take our camera to the beach (and risk getting it sandy or stolen), because a professional photographer accompanied us every day documenting our vacation. The villas are situated in the best location in Montezuma - right on the beach. They are just what you would picture in a tropical paradise - thatched roofs, tropical hardwoods, open and breezy. The grounds are huge and gorgeous - filled with palm trees, tropical flowers and a swimming pool - and they are the best place we found to see exotic wildlife. Montezuma is a cute town with lots to do and central to many good surf beaches. It's much more beautiful and lush that the northern part of the Nicoya peninsula. Perhaps best of all, the hosts of Peaks 'n Swells are attentive, patient, interesting, fun-to-be-with, well-organized and go above and beyond to ensure that every guest has an extraordinary experience. If you want to have a guaranteed fantastic vacation, this is it.
