PLANNING FOR YOUR TRIP
COMMUNICATING WITH US
We recommend downloading the free app ‘WhatsApp’ to your phone. This is how you’ll communicate with the Surf Synergy team. It’s an easy & effective tool for you to share requests, ask questions, and report issues to our staff throughout your stay.
iPhone App Store
We accept wire transfers and credit cards as payment for your booking. Once you’re on the property, we can take cash as well. While we don’t have an ATM on the property, we take both USD and Colónes, Costa Rica’s official currency.
WHAT'S THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
Once you’ve confirmed your reservation, your reservation is finalized. If something prevents you from making your original reservation date, however, we can reschedule your stay up to 24 hours before your arrival time.
DO I REALLY GET MY OWN COACH?
We pride ourselves on delivering intimate, tailored experiences to our guests, and that extends to our 1-on-1 coaching program. You’ll be paired with a coach that matches your needs who will be with you on every surf lesson.
BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER
Your meals are prepared with fresh ingredients; either grown or raised on our on-premises permaculture farm, or sourced locally. Our chefs will gladly create exquisite dishes that match your dietary requirements.
WHAT SHOULD I PACK?
Guests should bring clothes for active daytime, such as sneakers, hiking sandals or hiking shoes, yoga clothes, beachwear, swimwear, flip flops and casual wear such as; shorts, sundresses, tank tops and anything made of a light gauzy material. The nights can be chilly (more so during green season) so a light jacket, or a loose-fitting long sleeve top and light pants are recommended. We also recommend a rain jacket or poncho during green season. If you’re joining us for a 4- or 7-night immersion, we’ll provide you with a water bottle; you may want to bring your own or purchase one upon arrival if you’re staying day-to-day or for our green season package.
VISA & PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS
Guests traveling from the USA and Canada (and many other countries) do not need a visa but will need to provide a return ticket or evidence of onward travel. Your passport must have at least 6 months validity remaining to enter the country.
DO I NEED TO GET A RIDE TO SURF SYNERGY?
If you’re staying for one of our full immersion surf experiences, we’ll pick you up from San José as an included part of your experience. If you’re staying day-to-day, or for a green season package, we can provide these services for $120 each way. Either way you’ll be driven here by
DAYLIGHT & TIME ZONE
Sunrise is near 5:30am, and sunset is near 5:30pm year-round. It usually starts getting light around 5:15am. Whether you’re an early riser or hanging out late afternoon, you’ll love our views during the twilight hours.
WILL MY POWER CORDS WORK IN COSTA RICAN OUTLETS?
Costa Rica uses 120V, 60Hz wall outlets, the same as the United States. If you live in North or Central America, or Japan, what you use at home almost certainly works. If your power cords are designed for a different home country, then you probably need an adapter.
WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE?
Green season begins at the end of April and continues until mid-December. It is a beautiful time to be in Costa Rica as the lush tropical vegetation is in full force. During the green season, the rain generally, with exception, does not begin until late afternoon or evening, leaving a full day to explore in dry comfort.
