Nice lodge / very good surf teachers / amazing beach

Hi, my girlfriend and i stayed at PuraVida for one week. We had a very good time. The whole setting (lodge / location) is perfect. Beach is in 7min walking. For some lonely surf spots you can use the bikes of pura vida for free. Actually best surf teachers we got so far (Ruben / Victor). Also nice yoga sessions by Candelice in the mornings. I guess for singels or small groups it fits a little better then for couples du to many group activities and the community spirit in the camp (which is not a bad thing ;)). Nevertheless thumbs up anyway!

DREAM came true

An unique experience. I was a solo traveler and I didn't feel alone at all, it was just magic, the surf lesson were perfect, the yoga and the skate. The crew couldn't be more helpful and nice. I strongly recommend you to go and spend a week with such an amazing team in a dream location. Looking forward to come back.
