Pura Vida Pride

"The magical Osa Peninsula is home to the 2nd highest biodiversity index in the world. The surf here is is amazing and we are blessed to have pristine tropical waters surrounded by lush jungle. We can surf great waves and explore the rainforest where I can teach you about the different plants and animals of my home. I am very passionate about the conservation of our forests and wildlife and believe that surfing can help keep these areas protected. This is an authentic Costa Rican experience and we take pride in showing you the local Tico style. Pura Vida!"

Southern Costa Rica is home to a wide array of different setups and many world-class waves. The peak season is from March to October, with the summer months of May-September having the biggest waves.

Whether you like long, playful waves for cruising on your midlengths or longboard, or fast, powerful waves that demand high performance, there is something for you.

The adventure

Many people visit Costa Rica each year and there are so many tours and guides available. I promise that a trip with me will be unlike any other experience. My tours are unique because I have been a student of the forests and the sea ever since I was a child.

I have an intimate knowledge of the surf breaks on both coasts and know the top surfers from all over the country. The surf here is amazing year-round and we can surf all day but I believe every trip to Costa Rica isn't complete without learning about our forests. Come with me and let me take you Into the Jungle.

In addition to my surf guiding, I love to share my passion for the forest with all of my guests. The Osa Peninsula is home to the 2nd highest biodiversity index in the world. Only the Amazon rainforest ranks higher.

Here, you can observe scarlet macaws, toucans, monkeys, whales, dolphins, sloths, agoutis, boa constrictors, and scorpions all in the same day. I love taking my guests on guided jungle hikes to observe the different types of wildlife, learn about the plants and trees, visit beautiful waterfalls, and get an authentic Costa Rican experience.

I want you to go home with unforgettable memories and a better understanding of what it means to live la Pura Vida.

Owner & surf guide
Mayköl Espinoza

My name is Mayköl Espinoza and I was raised in the magical Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. I became fascinated with biology from a very early age because I was so inspired by the plants and wildlife of my home. I started working in tourism at 14 years old by accompanying my mentors as they showed people the wonders of the biodiversity of the Osa.

I have been surfing since I was very young and am very connected to the surf scene all throughout Costa Rica. I feel blessed to work with the land and sea and share my passion with people from all over the world. Pura Vida.
