Nestled on the inner coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, Peaks ‘n Swells Surf Camp is situated on the beachfront at a mere 10 minute walk from the beach in the quaint yet bohemian town of Montezuma. This region is known to be one of the most naturally blessed spots in Costa Rica complete with waterfalls, tropical jungles and near perfect surf breaks. Other than its ecological wonders Montezuma is also known for its fine array of restaurants, the local farmers market and its hippie-boho culture.
Peaks ‘n Swells Surf Camp is nestled on a charming oceanfront property that is a few minutes walk from the major surf breaks. Owing to the lack of roads near the property and juxtaposed between the beach and the tropical jungle, guests experience a feeling of being as close to nature as possible. Peaks n Swells features that accommodates surf camp guests in house.
Each accommodation option possesses an unusual style and earthy character and every one of them has direct access to the swimming pool. In addition to this there is a nice bbq area and bar adjacent to the pool. There are hammocks and large patios overlooking the ocean which make coffee and conversations here extremely memorable. White faced monkeys prancing around the property is a regular sight. You will also experience frequent sightings of other indigenous wildlife gems such as sea turtles, iguanas and others.
Peaks ‘n Swells sits is located at a perfect spot for all those wanting to learn basic or master advanced surfing skills.
