How did you like the accommodation?


Absolutely fantastic. From the day we arrived until the day we left everything was excellent. Great food, rooms, grounds, staff, equipment,... The level of service Kandice provided is top notch. I highly recommend others to experience everything Vista Guapa has to offer. You’ll be glad you did.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Our surf lessons, and all around surf experience, could not be rated anything less than 5-stars. David’s knowledge of the ocean and surfing resulted in awesome advances in our surf skills and we had a lot of fun making that happen. David is naturally patient and has a fun laidback style, which created a safe learning environment for my 15 year old and I.

Many don't realize that Costa Rica is home to some of the best breaks in the world with consistent surfing year-round. Being at the Central Pacific, Vista Guapa bears a very strategic location, capturing consistent waves and swells. Our proximity to over 20 point and beach breaks provides waves for all level Surfers as well as a variety of beautiful calm water beaches to contemplate and SUP too!
