Located along the stunning coastline of the Nicoya Peninsula, Playa Guiones serves as a good surfing destination in Costa Rica. With 7 kilometers of sugar-white sand and ideal conditions for a variety of activities, this small town is a little slice of paradise in Guanacaste. In fact, a couple hundred meters of the shoreline received a Blue Flag for its pristine, eco-friendly and well-maintained beaches.

This little-known town doesn't attract a large amount of travelers, making it the perfect tropical destination for those looking for a little R & R. 

65 Hours during the training, 35 Hours homework after the training.
