Lets be real - Ive been surfing for the whole of my life, surf camps in general are beat down, but serve a purpose, great for a first trip, till you learn a better way for yourself, I stayed down the street from this one at a hotel, walked over and surfed, great wave, large crew though on the weekend. I never made it north of hear, I understand once out of the bay, it gets really good and much more consistant, Panama in my opinion is much nicer than CR, people are great, roads are awesome. Car rental is honest and good. Waves are similar. Rented a brand new longboard from the Dentist(Shop) in the city, great deal. 120 all week, easy scene to drop in on...

well then GO TO TEH DECAMERON A RENT A VAN! - i was reading all this comments and i don´t know what are you looking for? Go rent a van a stay at the Decameron, or, go camping or don´t go anywhere!, when people complain about prices and that it´s certainly because they have no money, spend some thousands and surf some waves if ther is a swell, if not, then you are an apprentice or a beginner into surf and traveling!

The truth comes out - Alan's response about the food was that I ordered after 9 pm. Wrong! At my size/metabolism I rarely eat past 7! I realize that it's another country where things operate slower and certain things aren't available. I am not a picky eater and I don't demand "kiss your ass american" service, but we've all gotta eat! I was put in a position where the staff made me feel as if I was burdening them when I ordered food. Avoid this place.
