Surf camp santa teresa costa rica

'The only thing you buy that makes you richer'


Welcome to Lucero Surf Retreats, our little family owned Balinese style surf resort in the heart of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. We provide daily free daily breakfast and various surf lessons and rentals packages, our most common being our Surf & Stay.


The Pacific ocean feels like a warm bath averaging 85°F (30°C). Santa Teresa is know for its international crowd that brings a traveler atmosphere to this stunning rainforest along the Nicoya peninsula. You’ll likely be woken up to the howl of howler monkeys nearby and a climate that most dream about. 


Our Surf & Stay packages can be joined any week starting on Saturday or Sunday for 6+ days (but we want to accommodate all our guests so email us for different dates if necessary). 


The Surf & Stay package is designed to unlock the thrill of riding Costa Rica's legendary waves like a pro. Our professional surf instructors, armed with local knowledge and a passion for the ocean, will guide you through the exhilarating world of surfing. Whether you're a beginner looking to catch your first wave, or a seasoned surfer seeking to master new techniques. Each lesson is catered on a personal level to your skill level and aspirations. Embark on endless exploration as you conquer one of the best beach breaks in the world, just 300m from our boutique hotel.


Stay with us.

The beautiful white sand beaches you find here are known for some of the best surfing in the entire world, and ideal for surfers of any level! There is a pristine jungle view from the beach with no major development in sight. The rustic beauty of this town comes with one main road that runs from the southern part of Mal Pais up to Playa Hermosa and beyond parallel to the beach. 


Even though we are centrally located, our property is still far enough from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the tranquility of the Pura Vida lifestyle following your surf sessions. We take pride in the landscaping of our property and have a pool to cool down at your leisure. We pride ourselves on bringing our guests together to enjoy the common kitchen where we all share breakfast that’s included in the stay.  Every room comes with a hammock, perfect for relaxing when you’re not surfing or exploring town. We’re a couple of minutes walk away from the beach, best restaurants in town, supermarket, and anything else you’ll need on your journey.
