How did you like the accommodation?


I had one of the best holidays of my life.
Hostel La Posada is the perfect chilled space to disconnect from the busy city life and to flow into a different time-space.

The hostel is a perfect place for anyone looking for a comfortable and Costa Rican experience, as it has not at all a cookie cutter feel.

The owners Guillermo and Ramiro and the all the staff are very welcoming and genuine, I felt like I was with family after 2 days.

I had a private room on the ground level with a nice hammock outside to take naps after surf lessons.

The breakfast pancakes are great!

One wakes up with the Roosters wake up call from the neighboring houses, what a treat!

The hostel has a tall mango tree right by the gazebo where the common area is located under, and a number of trees pass by and sit and sing. And sometimes squirrels are going up and down.

The rooms are decorated with amazing murals which make the atmosphere very artistic.

The Pool is great! One cools off there whenever one wants. Which in my case was often.

I let the hostel booked my surf lessons for me with a local instructor, Victor. I had a blast and I learned how to stand on the board from the first day.

We were going to a neihbouring beach called Cabuya because the waves there are perfect because they are long.

But I also went alone to surf at hermosa beach once I got the hang of it.

There are lots of little food places called Sodas, they are the real deal.

I went to soda La Amistad, just like 50 meters from la Posada to eat Casados prepared by Doña Goyita, they are awesome and the price is great. They also has nice burgers.

I also went often to Taco Corner to eat Burritos. They are awesome as well. The Mechada burrito and the Tuna one were my best picks. But i tried all of them and after surf lessons I was happy and full with a burrito in my stomach.

There are 2 entrances to the beach close by. It only takes like 5 minutes to be on the beach.

The sunsets were awesome. The people staying at the hostel and also some staff that was off duty would all go to the beach around 5 to chill and watch the sunset.

I had a amazing experience.

And I will probably come back very soon

How did you like the surf lessons?


Yes. I really liked my surf lessons. I learned a lot on the first day. And i was able to stand on the board from day one.
The instructors give you advice and we had reviews to watch videos after some lessons to see ourselves and learn from the mistakes we were making
