REALLY AMAZING place, just in front of the main surf spot in Santa Teresa. The rooms are super comfortable, clean, very well equipped (hot water and air conditioning), and very safe. All rooms have balconies with hamaks and the most beautiful view on the jungle. The staff is really nice, welcoming and always willing to help. Rumbo surf is also...

Great place to stay, the location is beautiful just by the beach. The staff was really helpful and friendly. Ask for the surfing lessons... I was a bit sceptical about my chances of standing on a board at the beginning... and by the end of the week I couldn't wait to get back to the sea and ride another wave....

It's my second time at Rumbo Surf, this time I got the Regular Surf Camp package and I'm very happy with the results. Nico is great and helped me a lot improving my surfing. The apartments are very confortable and next to the surf spot. I recommend it and hope to go back for the third as soon as possible!

Clean and friendly. Nico, the owner/manager, was helpful, solving the few problems we came across in our three day stay. The rooms are basic but had everything we needed. Ask about the status of the construction project behind the house. For the price, I'd recommend it.
