Learn to surf in Costa Rica

Montezuma offers the perfect place to learn to surf in Costa Rica. A 20 minute walk along secluded beaches and jungle pathways takes you to Playa Grande. This beach has no road access, which makes it a quiet and secluded place to learn how to surf. The surf lesson company we work with, Young Vision, has experienced instructors with ISA, first aid and lifeguard training.  Young Vision is a locally owned and operated company with local surfers leading the classes. Playa Grande is also a great place for intermediate surfers as well!  young-vision-surf-schoolCosta Rican Beaches Costa Rica beaches beaches of Costa Rica

Hike to Playa Grande, Montezuma

One of the most incredible parts of Montezuma is that you can walk for miles, along beaches and through the jungle and discover new beaches at each turn. The hike to Playa Grande, Montezuma crosses rivers, goes up and down jungle trails, and along volcanic beaches. Once you reach Playa Grande, you are rewarded with a long stretch of deserted beach and long rolling waves that are perfect for surfing beginners and with larger waves, great for all levels. If you sign up for surf lessons this is where you’ll go! It’s only about a 20 minute walk from Ylang Ylang.
