There's no getting around it, flights from the UK to San Jose are not very 'board friendly'. The extra charge is expensive, so worth considering buying a board once you're there. In Santa Teresa there's loads of surf shops, you can get a brand new board for around $400. Then you can re-sell it, or pay the excess if you don't want to part with it on return!

We have had a really good time over the last 3.5 weeks and have enjoyed our stay. The main house where we ate had open plan living at the base with large comfortable seating areas and a big communal table. The room had a large Flat screen TV with tons of DVDs to watch. Owner (Dave) also had Wi-Fi which worked all over the complex. Fresh water was available all day and Dave often baked bread which we eat. Tea/Coffee and milk was provided during our stay but no breakfast food. We often ate with Dave (owner) and split the costs. He is a great cook. Pool is superb and really refreshing. Surrounding areas are well maintained and very attractive with creative landscaping. The location of the accommodation can not be classed as beach side. It is up a side road from the main road that runs parallel with the beach. The side road is around 500m up a hill which is steep in places and removes you from the noise of the main street but is quite a walk if you were carrying a heavy longboard each day.Martin -
Accommodation was great, very welcoming and friendly Dave involved you in as much or little as you wanted. The surf coaching was very good and also very child friendly Food was yummy, dave is a great cook and the local restaurants catered for every taste even my fussy son who ate his body weight at the argentine grill! I have no complaints and would use your company again and if the chance arise go back to costs ricaDEBBIE -
