Brett Swanson 5 / 5

I stayed at the Rapture camps in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua on this trip and both were great! The Nicaragua camp is stunning with a great view of the ocean. Communal breakf

sts and dinners are included and great to get to know the other guests and you can also buy lunch at the camp if you want. There are a few beaches to surf nearby and the group will drive down for one or two sessions a day depending on the tides. All the staff and guides were super helpful and friendly and the camp had a very social atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

Evan Schrock 5 / 5

If you’re looking for relaxation, loads of surf, yoga, great food, and amazing value this is your spot. Vincent and his team were the most accommodating crew I’ve ever exp

rienced. The surf guiding and coaching was next level. I had 11 days here and we were on great waves every day. The camp is clean, stylish and comfortable with a huge yoga deck and infinity pool. Will absolutely be back.

Rachel Mc Ginn 5 / 5

Rapture Nica is the best!! Staying in the jungle with the most beautiful infinity pool and camp is the dream. Being driven to the best surf spots around makes everything super

easy and means you get loads of time to work on your skills in the water. The best thing about rapture is the people who go! I came as a solo traveler and made so many great friends here! Would recommend in a heartbeat.

Susu Yang 5 / 5

I stayed in Rapture Nica for a week and had one of the best experience! The camp is located on the mountain surrounded with trees and overlook the ocean. Soaking up the best s

nset view in the infinity pool has been my everyday ritual. The surfing guides here are very knowledgeable and helpful. They drive you to the best surfing spots to chase the waves. We even had a surfing boat trip. Vincent, the owner, made sure everyone has a great experience. I’d miss this place so much and will come back!!
