Your experience is based at ‘Jakera Jungle Surf Camp’ where we have created a jungle paradise complete with swimming pool overlooked by a rich tropical forest bursting with wildlife including red squirrels, howler monkeys and tiny magical hummingbirds. We are a 10 min walk from the cool cafes, bars and shops that line the 6 km stretch of road and beach that make up Playa Santa Teresa/Playa El Carmen. This program is quite busy but there is still free time to enjoy a great social life and participate in the many other activities you can enjoy here. Join us on an adventure that’ll take you right to the heart of Costa Rica, where you’ll meet a nation of fiercely proud and fun-loving ‘Ticos’. It may be small, but this peaceful, sun-drenched corner of Central America holds over 5% of the world’s biodiversity, boasting more national parks per square metre than any other country in the world. It is also home to some of the most important nesting sites for endangered turtles. We have created a jungle paradise complete with swimming pool overlooked by a rich tropical forest bursting with wildlife including capuchin and howler monkeys. Here you will learn Spanish, surf one of the top 10 surf destinations in the world, enjoy adventure travel and volunteer in environmental projects including turtle conservation.More
