F. Hart

It was my first trip to Central America. I went there without any expectations and I have to say it was one of the most beautiful holidays I have ever had. The trip to the sur

camp and of course the managers Luis and Vincent were definitely involved. Actually, I only planned to stay there for 1 week, but this quickly turned into several weeks due to the friendly atmosphere. A few short day trips but then back to the camp. Everything is offered. From an excellent programme (surf course, yoga) to small adventures in the jungle. You get a lot for your money. The two dogs Ida and Luna sweeten the stay even more. When you are there, it is best to bring him a few bones from the car Mercado Tamarindo, then you will have best friends right away.

This place is a hidden gem! It is made with style and simplicity, making the most of its location. Immersed in "the jungle" and built to coexist with it's natural surroundings
