MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


 SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

As many other surf spots in Costa Rica, Dominical has a reputation for its strong and consistent waves. Our great advantage for the surfers who want to take it easier is that there is bay called Dominicalito, which has perfect waves for beginner and intermediate surfers. It’s much softer and has almost no current at all, making it easy to enjoy surfing while feeling safe at the same time.

Seasonal conditions

Temperature is in average 26 C (78 °F) all year round,  we recommend you to travel light! Camp is closed during September-October and November due to rainy season.

Crowd factor and local people

Costa Ricans are kind, friendly, and helpful people. The motto of the country is “Pura Vida” which means pure life and it’s the first Spanish word that you will learn, since it means almost everything! Pura Vida is a non-stress lifestyle but also a “thank you”, “how are you”, “hello” and “goodbye”.
