Costa Rica’s most popular surf camp since 2001! It could be because of our location on one of the world’s most renowned and diverse surf spots, because of our professional ISA certified bilingual instructors, or because we simply know how to live the pura vida Costa Rica lifestyle. Nestled right on one of Guanacaste’s most pristine beaches at the corner of the Tamarindo Estuary, the wind and tidal conditions create separate and distinct wave breaks on one single stretch of shoreline. That is why we have access to waves for all surfing levels right in our front yard! Aside from Tamarindo beach, we are just a short boat or car ride away from a wide array of other types of surf breaks. Whether you are a family with three children of different ages that have never surfed before, or you are World Title holder looking for some fun and fast barrels, we’ve got you covered. WE HANDLE EVERYTHING! Our all inclusive surf packages include airport transportation, accommodations, surfing, surfboards, optional classroom seminars, daily breakfast, and so much more.

I cannot say enough good things about Witch's Rock! As a solo traveler and first time surfer, I was so grateful to find a place that instantly felt like home away from home. The pura vida vibes are real here - the staff are welcoming and the surf instructors are patient and amazing. I felt like I was part of one big surfing family, getting to explore and connect in paradise. I took a few excursions (scuba, catamaran) that Witch's made super easy to coordinate and I had a blast learning to surf all week. A truly unforgettable trip. And so good that I booked my return visit before boarding my flight home! Highly recommend!

6th year coming here. What an amazing time. Surfed Withes Rock, Playa Avellana , Captain Suizo & right out front. Best surfing we have ever done. Johan is the best instructor we have ever had. We request him every year. Very knowledgeable. Best part is how much he makes it all. We’ll be back again. Hopefully this summer. Dios bending a mi hemano

My stay at WRSC was way more than I anticipated! From the airport pick up to the surfboard rentals, to daily tours and on site restaurants, you really can’t ask for much more. And if you piece it all together the value you get is almost unbelievable (I’m hesitant on writing this hoping they don’t raise their prices but even if they did it would still be a bargain)! The staff is so friendly, the instructors/guides are amazing, and PruPru is worth the price of admission! I will be returning to Witch’s Rock Surf Camp every year! Thanks to all who made my stay perfect!

My friends and I just finished a week in January at Witch's Rock surf camp and we had the time of our life!! My friends were in intermediate lessons and they had Chanty for an instructor who was very patient, knowledgable, always happy and very caring as one of them needed medical care one day. Chanty is an incredible surfer and an absolute gem to meet :) My instructor as a beginner was Randal "FISH" Ruiz who was always smiling and ready to teach, very patient and knowledgeable about the water and surfing, I always felt safe out in the water. The wait staff was always smiling and a pleasure to be around, and HD (Handsome Diego) and Augustina at the front desk were incredibly helpful and a blast to be around. It was an awesome experience to watch Endless Summer with Robert August, and hear his experiences live. I loved Witches Rock and would certainly come back for another week or two! Thank you to all of the staff!
