PUERTO VIEJO, COSTA RICA

ABOUT THIS TRIP

 

Located in the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, Puerto Viejo is a gorgeous little surf village with a population of roughly 25,000. With dozens of beautiful beaches, bars, local shops and delicious restaurants, our Costa Rican escape has all the ingredients needed for an epic adventure.

 

Daily surf lessons and yoga class are the foundation of each day; but it doesn’t stop there. Throughout your trip we’ll be taking some exciting day trips to swim in a magical waterfall, treat ourselves to a chocolate coffee exfoliation treatment, explore an indigenous cacao farm to learn about the organic process of making chocolate and visit the Jaguar Wildlife Refuge to play with sloths, monkeys, toucans and more.

 

If you’re a foodie, you’re in for a real treat. Each evening, we visit different restaurants offering different cuisines including traditional Caribbean, Costa Rican and World Fusion.

 

This is essentially an all inclusive package, minus flights, the 1st night accommodation, airport transfers, tipping, beverages, and the trip to the Jaguar Wildlife Refuge. Otherwise, all transportation, accommodation, guides, surf classes, yoga, fitness, 3 meals a day, and unforgettable memories are all included.

Premium stylish accommodation
Premium and stylish accommodation located next to beautiful tropical beaches and surf. The advertised rate is for double occupancy. Single occupancy can absolutely also be arranged for an additional fee. Please contact us to learn more.

 

Daily surf instruction with professional surfers
Our instructors are top notch and include Costa Rican National Surf Coach, and 5 x National Surf Champion, Gilbert Brown. Oshiis can accommodate the complete novice surfer (someone who was never touched a surfboard) through to an intermediate or advanced surfer (someone looking to get their first barrel or do their first air). Groups are divided by ability. From rookie to ripper.

 

Daily surfboard rental
You are welcome to bring your own surfboard but we understand that this can be costly due to airline fees. Oshiis’ surfboard inventory includes longboards through to performance shortboards. If you would prefer to travel without your surfboard, let us know what you need and we will source it.

 

Daily yoga instruction
Our yoga space is nestled in the jungle near the beach. Our experienced yoga instructors, and organic jungle sounds and crashing waves, will guide your practice.

 

Daily surf check and travel from hotel to optimal surfing location
Surfing conditions change daily. Oshiis assesses the surf each day and coordinates travel so that you enjoy the best surf possible on that day and for your ability.

 

Mouthwatering meals
Begin your day with a delicious tropical breakfast at the hotel, energize with organic snacks in between surf and yoga sessions, and enjoy some very special evening meals that only a local can offer.

 

20 years of local knowledge
Two decades of personal and business life in the surf towns of Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua have allowed Oshiis to create a network of incredible people; passionate about sharing their sand, sea and stories with you.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED

 

Airfare to Central America

 

Cost of activities other than surfing or yoga
If you have gas left in the tank after a day of surfing, stretching and beaching we can arrange for you to experience even more of Central America.

 

Your 1st nights hotel in the city of destination
At Oshiis we want to be able to maximize our 1st day together. So we ask that you arrive one day before the Experience begins. We do this so that we can head out first thing in the morning on the first day of the trip. We have a designated hotel for our guests to stay at, including an Oshiis special rate.

 

Your transportation to and from the airport
As most of our guest are coming from around North America, it is quite difficult for us to accommodate transportation to and from the airport. We will be able to organize an Oshiis representative from the hotel to take you safely to the hotel, but it will be an additional cost.
