Top 7 Reasons to Choose DMSC
#1: Discover Costa Rica, With Costa Ricans
Del Mar Surf Camp is owned and operated by 3 local women, Maria del Mar, Angie Miranda & Bettina del Rio. Successfully run for over 10 years, the Del Mar Surf Camp packages only emphasize the best that Costa Rica has to offer. While this is a surf camp, you are getting history, culture, language lessons and knowledge about wildlife from the team of Costa Ricans who have lived here their entire lives.
#2: Speak Spanish in Latin America
Go on vacation and have the ability to practice, speak and learn Spanish. Especially, when you’re in a Latin American country. With Del Mar Surf Camp, we’re fully bilingual – but we speak Spanish on a daily basis and have taken the time to learn the English language for our guests – so know that when you arrive, we would love to learn from you and teach you about our language. It always helps to speak the local language to get your way around town, and that is the prime benefit what we offer.
#3: Get the Local Treatment
As with anything in life, knowing the right people will take you a long way. Get taken to a restaurant where the owner is best friends with your host or to a mountain that is owned by a local who has had it in their family for over generations – learn about the things that make your experience special, the stories and places that only the locals can show you. Surfing with the locals, isn’t so bad especially when some of your surf instructors are pro surfers from the Costa Rican national team.
#4: Keep Costa Rica Growing & Green
While Costa Rica is one of the ‘Happiest Countries in the World’ we are also ranked as the greenest in the world because we as citizens contribute as much as we can to this philosophy of our country. As registered businesses in Costa Rica, we pay taxes, we have insurance, we are certified and work with local vendors to protect them. Our involvement in beach cleaning & tree planting projects as a surf camp is year-long because it’s our home. When you support local businesses like Del Mar Surf Camp, you support Costa Rica & keep it growing.
#5: All Year Round
We all know vacation time is sacred, it’s the one thing we look forward to going on and the last thing we look forward to ending. So planning the right time is crucial for when you are available. With most camps, there are specific dates and times that they operate – with Del Mar Surf Camp, we live here. Our camp dates are run on an “anytime you want” basis and rest assure, we are always going to be here even when you come for a visit, as your Costa Rican family.
#6: Choice to SURF MORE, in Playa Nosara & Playa Santa Teresa
One of the best parts of having three locations is the variety of options.
Especially in our Playa Nosara & Playa Santa Teresa locations, come to get intensive surf training and more time in the water. With the conditions you can surf there up to twice a day, just because of the way the wave conditions and tides luckily work in that area of Costa Rica. So if you want, you can always add an extra surf lesson to your Playa Nosara or Playa Santa Teresa camp!
#7: All the Above = Service & Value
