It is highly recommended to bring your own SUP surfboard and paddle for SUP surf coaching, as it ensures the most progression and improvement with your surfing. However, we understand it may not always be possible, so we do offer rental options. For more information on rental availability and pricing, please reach out to us directly.

In Costa Rica, the local currency used is Colones. US dollars are also widely accepted, however it is advised to carry some Colones when buying goods at smaller establishments.

Whilst it is not obligatory, gratuities are welcomed within the service industry. Some restaurants and services include a 10% service charge, but most do not.  

Credit cards are widely accepted in Costa Rica, but it is wise to have cash on hand for smaller purchases and in rural areas. ATM’s are widely available and dispense local currency.
