Incuded in all of GISC's Iguana packages is every bit of the following...!
The rest of your time here in Playa Dominical is spent:
Green Iguana Surf Camp is located along Costa Rica's southern Pacific beaches, about a third of the way up the coast from Panama. Though Playa Dominical is famous mainly for its beautiful beaches and super-consistent, well-formed waves, the area is also known among seasoned travelers as one of Costa Rica's top beach destinations, and unlike the popular Jaco and Tamarindo beaches, is still relatively undeveloped. We're not in the heart of what could be called "typical tourism" here in Costa Rica. Instead of the high rise hotels and American fast food restaurants that are now typical of the more crowded, Americanized northern and central Costa Rican surf towns, in Playa Dominical, the geography is such that there is simply not much room for growth; here in Dominical, the rainforest still continues right on down out of the mountains and virtually covers the town. To put it simply, Green Iguana still has that perfect authentic Costa Rican blend of great, consistent surf, beautiful beaches, lots of friendly locals, and very limited development, a feeling that people only really get to know once they've been here and experienced it. Playa Dominical is a rustic place that offers plenty of solitude and privacy, and there is certainly never the scenario of stepping over bodies to try and find a spot to put your towel down!
Dominical has some great local restaurants, with some of the best located right in or near our Green Iguana lodging locations. There are several small surf shops in town for all your surfing needs, where you can buy high quality surfing sunblock, which are definitely recommended for surfing here in the tropics. In Dominical, there are also several small supermarkets and fruit stands, a bank with an ATM, and everything is within walking distance of each other.
Green Iguana's Surf School is simply the finest surf school you can find. We truly care about our client's fun and advancement every day they're here! Our instructors care less about their time on the clock than they do about giving you the best sevice they can provide, and more importantly, we are all excellent natural teachers of this wonderful sport, with over 100 years of combined surfing and teaching experience. Your personal fun experience with surfing is what we do this job for, and we are driven by your success!
Green Iguana is more than glad to have intermediate to advanced level surfers stay with us, as quite simply, it means we get to ride waves with you! Of course we'll give you tips wherever we can, but this package is mostly for higher level surfers who want to get good, consistent waves, with a high quality photo album of your waves. This package also includes airport and local transportation, lodging, and any tours you'd like to add on.
Green Iguana Surf Camp's Surf Science page is the most comprehensive and informative web page on sufing's basics and ocean safety to be found anywhere on the internet! We highly recommend that anyone traveling to the beach reads this page thoroughly before departing on your surf trip, regardless of the location. Please share what you learn on this page, especially the section on rip currents, with your family and friends!
