Located on the Pacific coast of the Guanacaste peninsula in Costa Rica, Witch’s Rock Surf Camp is a surf resort that has something for everyone of all ages and skill levels.
While it’s named after the famed break featured in the Endless Summer movies, Witch’s Rock is actually located beachfront in Tamarindo, which is an hour-long boat ride away from that particular wave. The camp sits beachfront and the waves out front serve as a great place for beginner and intermediate surfers to develop and work on their skills. However, when the Tamarindo river mouth is pumping it can quickly become a barrel factory.
Witch’s Rock Surf Camp offers a comprehensive surf school program complete with video analysis, one-on-one coaching, and a graduation event complete with a diploma at the end of your week-long course. Depending on your surfing ability, your daily surf trips can include waves such as Playa Grande, Playa Avellanas, Playa Marbella, and other lesser-known breaks in between.
The Guanacaste peninsula sticks out into the Pacific Ocean, allowing it to pick up waves from all directions throughout the year. May through October is considered “green season”, with September and October having the potential to be rained out. November through April bring direr and hotter weather, with the monthe of January through April featuring offshore winds all day long.
Amenities include free airport shuttles to and from the Liberia International Airport, wi-fi, free breakfast, free board rentals, and free coffee all day long. The resort feature several restaurants to choose from. They also brew their own beer, which is an added bonus considering Costa Rica is not known for its selection of cervezas.
