Surf Bikini Retreat is an incredible and unforgettable experience. From the first time of contact with Adilia in booking the trip, she makes everything easy and safe. Adilia is welcoming, happy and supportive. As a bonus she is an incredibly patient and knowledgeable surf teacher. Our personal chef Eli will prepare the most incredible, fresh food, all meals being varied and prepared with such care. The healthiest and tastiest week of local fresh food I’ve ever had!
The entire team of women including Maria and Jesse are there to support you in your surfing journey. This retreat is about women empowerment, gaining strength in mind and body, meeting incredible women from around the world, having fun, staying present, gaining confidence, eating amazing food, sharing many laughs, learning to surf, pushing past fear, being healed by the ocean and being in nature.
I am so grateful for my week spent with the women on my retreat and will be returning in the future.

Life Changing
This was my second retreat with Surf Bikini and when I say life changing, I truly mean it. My first retreat was 3 years ago and it was my first time surfing and my very first trip as a solo traveller. I was nervous beyond belief, but that trip taught me so much about myself and I've never looked back. Since then I've travelled to 30+ countries and had some amazing adventures. Now 3 years on, I wanted to introduce my younger cousin to this magical place, and to the amazing Adilia!

With so many places to visit in the world, I rarely go to the same place twice - except for Nosara. This place stole a piece of my heart and I've been back 3 times now. Not only is the location gorgeous, but the surf is one of the best I've been to for beginner and experienced surfers alike. Sandy beach, consistent waves, warm water - it's incredible.

But what truly makes this place special and keeps me coming back is Adelia and her team! In my travels, I've taken surf lessons at other places, and no one compares to the Surf Bikini team. They have 2 goals - be safe and have fun, and they take both of these endeavors very seriously. You will learn to surf and you will have so much fun! I If you're contemplating whether to try it, just take my advice and go for it!

Obsessed ❤️
This is the first review I have ever written, but feel compelled to since Surf Bikini was so amazing!

Adilia was extremely accommodating for my schedule. I arrived early and left early because of work and she made sure that I was able to have the best experience in the short time I was there (including scheduling my massage early and moving our delicious sushi dinner!).

She was very sensitive to my goal of becoming much more confident in the water and on the “green” waves. I received a lot of personalized instruction and we were in the water twice a day (the quality was above and beyond other surf camps I researched).

I also cannot say enough good things about the food. All the food was super fresh and healthy!

Would 100% go back (and typically I’m not someone that takes the same vacation twice)!

Fabulous, life changing experience :)
This was exactly what I was looking for in my first trip alone outside Canada/US. Guiones is a very clean and safe place. The transport/taxi from the airport was included (for reference would be ~$130+ USD each way) so it made things so much simpler (P.S. Still, knowing Spanish would be helpful, or downloading an offline translation app in advance, since the taxi drivers rarely speak English). There is a lot of families from abroad with young children which made me more confident in the area. The women I got to stay with for the week were all wonderful and Adilia who runs the retreat is amazing. She is a perfect teacher, very supportive and knowledgeable. She sets up the schedule in a smart way. I was a bit bummed that the horseback riding would have coincided with our sunset dinner so I skipped doing an activity on our free day, but honestly there was so much going on all week it was actually nice to just have a day to wander town and the beach. That said there was plenty of time to relax on each day as well. There was somewhat of a range in surf experience with the women and Adilia has other instructors to help out so everyone gets lots of attention and progression is achievable. Mackenzie and Maria were great! Playa Guiones is the perfect beach to surf at. Super soft sand and waves even a newbie like me can ride. A new retreat property is under construction so we stayed in the Nosara Verde - Casa Selva vacation rental house. When ready (~July 2019) the location will be a bit further away but we were able to walk down to the beach in 10 minutes this time. Adilia drove us anywhere that required. The main cook, Eli, makes the best meals! (I am vegetarian and had no trouble finding too much to eat ;) ) Carla gives the best massages! I could go on and on... but I don't want to spoil everything for you. You should go experience it for yourself. I definitely hope to go back.

Surf Bikini Retreat exceeds expectations!
This was my second year in a row going to Surf Bikini Retreat and once again it was AMAZING! The small group sizes and the amount of surfing (2 lessons per day with a student to instructor ratio of 2:1) are what initially attracted me to Surf Bikini Retreat and are what will keep me going back each year. Both years I’ve gone as a solo traveller and the small group size makes it feel like you are among friends. The owner Adilia is such a welcoming and warm host and goes out of her way to make sure you have a fantastic week.

I’ve surfed in several locations and the beach in Nosara is by far the best and friendliest beach that I’ve experienced for those newer to surfing. The water is beautiful and the waves accommodate newbies as well as those more advanced.

I noticed huge improvements in my surfing abilities from my first time at Surf Bikini Retreat to my second. On this most recent trip, I was out on the green waves on my first day (and I hadn’t surfed since the year before!). I worked with a few different instructors which I found to be very valuable as you learn something different from each person. All the instructors are very positive and encouraging. Thank you Adilia and team!

The food at Surf Bikini Retreat was phenomenal both times I went. There is great variety that includes home cooked meals as well as some restaurant outings. I definitely felt well nourished during my stay and I can honestly say it is the best food I’ve had on any vacation overall.

The accommodations have been great – beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, there is space to hang-out with the other folks as well as space to have some privacy. I’m really excited to check out the new location when I go back in January 2020!

While I’m not much of a Yogi, I really enjoy the yoga sessions held during the week. The yoga instructor makes sure to cater to all levels and it’s really beneficial to get some deeper stretching in after working hard at surfing.

The massage included in the package is AWESOME! It really helps with the sore muscles that result when you aren’t used to surfing everyday!

In the most recent trip, there were a few additional extras – a morning hike that resulted in breakfast with a breathtaking view and a trip to the spa (spa services cost extra). I really enjoyed both of these add-ons and hope Adilia continues to include them in the package – especially the hike!!

I highly recommend Surf Bikini Retreat to anyone who is interested in learning to surf or improve their surfing skills. Surf Bikini Retreat has become an annual tradition that I plan to continue!
