Playa Guiones, Nosara is renowned for our year round surf suitable for the beginner to advanced surfer. With the main Playa Guiones surf break only 500 meters West from our campus, the Nosara Spanish Institute is ideally situated to provide a world class Surf and Spanish experience.
We are proud to have teamed with Bodhi Del Mar Surf Camp, located at Bodhi Tree Resort, to offer our Surf and Spanish Program.
The weekly package includes:

Daily and weekly board rentals are also available at surf shops near the school for Nosara Spanish Institute students.
Surf lessons will be scheduled on Tuesday (2 hours) and Thursday (2 hours) around your Spanish class times. Your lessons will start with a workshop where you will learn the basics of surfing, safety tips, paddling techniques, standing up on a board and riding waves.
All of the Bodhi Del Mar surf instructors are CPR, Open Water Rescue and First Aid certified to guarantee a safe and amazing experience. Bodhi Del Mar is owned by Costa Rican native Maria del Mar Alfaro, a major part of the surfing world since 1997.
