The story about our hostel & surf camp in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Blue Trailz Hostel and Surf Camp in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Blue Trailz Hostel & Surf Camp offers a unique vacation experience in the tropical beach town of Tamarindo, situated on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica, in the Province of Guanacaste, among its tropical surf breaks, monkeys- and more palm trees than you can shake a tortilla at.

Founded in 2003, Blue Trailz Hostel & Surf Camp quickly gained a reputation as a leader within the hospitality and surf sectors. Now it’s run by Koen and Aleksandar; two travel addicts from Holland and Belgium who took over the business in 2011 and continue to run this fun and popular hostel and surf school in Tamarindo. We are an open and friendly place and welcome everybody including our gay and LGBT friends.

We don’t want to brag, but today, we reckon that we’re so much more than a super-friendly hostel; many of our guests opt for our winning combination of either Tamarindo hostel or luxury hotel accommodation, plus surf lessons and an unforgettable excursion of their choice, with one of our budget-friendly Tamarindo surf camps or luxury Costa Rica surf vacations. And as if that doesn’t sound amazing enough, the people who work here will make it even better. Our brilliant Blue Trailz family includes our hostel staff Marcela, Steven and Andres, who are a mine of local information. They place Costa Rican hospitality at the forefront of their values, ensuring that our guests are always more than satisfied during their stay with us. Our bilingual surf instructors are also native Costa Ricans (fluent in surf, too!) and their wave-riding prowess is practically inherent to them. This, of course, will be passed onto you during your Tamarindo surf lessons.


Tamarindo, Costa Rica is also the perfect spot to explore the breathtaking natural surroundings, tuck into some delicious Tico food, or relax by the crystalline beach waters. And if you’re feeling active whilst staying with us, your choice of tour activities is pretty impressive too; ATV, horse riding, zip lining, monkey-watching, turtle-spotting, snorkeling, sunset booze cruise, swimming, hiking and of course, surfing, are all available for you to try. And after an action-packed day, there is plenty of nightlife to dance off your remaining energy with friends.


So what are you waiting for? Check out our latest surf vacation deals, Costa Rica surf camp, and luxury Tamarindo surf vacations.
