Costa Rica is a green country, full of nature, adventures and tons of exciting things to do.
Beaches in Costa Rica are a must to visit while you are in Central America; beautiful clean waters, jungle views, monkeys, amazing sunsets, and nature at its best. You can find multiple activities to do, try new things, exercise and never be bored!
Tamarindo Surf: Tamarindo Beach is mostly known for being an excellent surf break, it is perfect for those who want to learn, waves are easy and there are different spots along the beach so you can find the one that suits you best. If you are a bit more experienced, you will love the nearby surf spots ( Langosta and Casita) which you can reach by boat or walk. Tamarindo offers multiple surf schools for both kids and adults, where you can rent a board, have lessons and enjoy an awesome time while in water.
Our favorites: SALT and La Sirena Surf Adventures, amazing, fun and professional instructors.
Sunset Sailing: Sunsets in Flamingo or Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica, are unique, full of magic, colors and an amazing sense of peace. Travelers from around the world come to Tamarindo and find themselves lost in this colorful dance where sun merges into the sea. But there is nothing like having the opportunity to witness this display while you are sailing. This opportunity will easily be the most unforgettable experience of all your trip! Enjoy bottomless drinks, local lunch, snorkeling and spectacular sunsets views while on a boat. There are three companies available for this kind of activity, so be sure not to miss it!
Visit A Spa: Vacation is meant to relax, right? All of Costa Rica is filled with spas for every budget and for every need. There are many options available at different prices to help you get you relaxed and to make your muscles feel better… Organic foods, Chocolate massages, coffee scrubs, or a nice deep tissue massage after a long surf of Brazilian jiu jitsu session, what else can you ask for?!
Waterfall and Volcano Sights: If you visit Costa Rica you must see all the incredible waterfalls that are located pretty much near every town. Wherever you go in Costa Rica you will find beautiful waterfalls, with great swimming spots. Most of these great waterfalls are near impressive volcanoes, some of them aren’t active so you can hike all the way to the top! The best part is that you can finish your waterfall/volcano hike day by taking a nice bath in one of the many hot-springs right at the bottom of the volcanoes. Get all the benefits of these mineralized waters and relax!
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Tamarindo Beach: Enjoy all the perks of training Jiu Jitsu in Hero Academy while on vacation; strength, focus, flexibility and an incredible amount of fun can be some of your achievements while training. If you already train BJJ don’t think twice and stop by for some Jiu Jitsu! We train every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, No Gi for now.
