  • We had a really good time in Dominical and the surf lessons were great! Very nice e-mail contact with the owner, professional instructor with very clear explanation and once in the water we were already standing at the first wave! Good care, nice snack in the break and shirts included.
  • One of the best experiences of my life! So much fun! Very talented and professional instructors, who in only one hour got me standinding up on the board, riding the waves! I felt safe and confident all the way! If you want to learn how to surf, I can definitely recommend this place!
  • My family of 7 had the most amazing time surfing Dominical with Debbie and her great team of instructors for a full week of lessons. This is one of the most incredible family experiences we have ever had. Mom, dad, and kids aged 7, 10, 13, 15, and 17 were all well taken care of. The coaching was great throughout, we always felt safe, and we had loads of fun, even as first-time surfers. The coaching was age appropriate too, with Debbie, Raymond, and Jordy splitting up as needed to make sure we were all being challenged--kids and adults. With Debbie, we felt like we were receiving the personal touch that seems to be lacking with bigger operations. We really can't complain about anything at all and are looking forward to finding a way to come back. Thanks, Debbie, Raymond, and Jordy! We will miss you guys. Erik, Katie, and kids

Where to stay in Dominical

The estuary of Rio Baru offers memorable natural scenery, so it's no surprise that most of the accommodations in Dominical cluster around this point. Look to the eastern bank of the river to find a selection of resorts, eco-lodges, and villas offering pleasant waterfront views. For something a bit quieter but with excellent beach access, stay in a private vacation rental farther east down the coast. You can also head north to stay near Nauyaca Waterfalls.
