It was an amazing week! I loved the concept of all arriving on the same day, having dinners and activities together - it really does feel like one big family! The staff and vo

unteers are great and make you feel at home, they are always there for good times. The surf instructors are the best, paying a lot of attention and giving a lot of feedback to help you improve. It was great and I definitely will be back!

Lmar Niazman 5 / 5

I came to Gota Dagua because I wanted to have a week of surfing, but it turned out to be a lot more than that. While there were surf lessons with great instructors every day,

oming back home to the hostel was just as much fun. Whether it were the big daily dinners with everyone, all the different activities and trips, or just simply hanging around on the patio with the staff and the other guests, it was always a great time and I highly recommend to everyone to go on this week long journey to Gota Dagua

Marcelo Salla 5 / 5

The best week of my life!! I came there on my own and left with so many amazing friends. In the first day that I arrived I already felt like I was part of the family. The envi

onment and vibes in the surf house were so good! The food was super delicious 😋 there are always vegan and vegetarian options and the surf lessons were awesome! I progressed so much in just 1 week. The volunteers are so nice and friendly. Everyday there is evenings planned and trips for everyone, it is very well organized. I strongly recommend Gota Dagua surf camp!! And for sure that I will be back next year!
