2/10 Poor

Dreamsea Surf camp is a 30-40min difficult hike from the beach. the hike is rocky and not exactly safe after sunset. The place is run by volunteers that aren't always friendly. If you want to a place far away from the beach, with a small portion of whatever is left from breakfast from the volunteers.. this is the place for you. The tent is as shown in the pictures. They offer a shuttle to the beach on some days! (Unfortunately, I wasn't there for those days.) I was disappointed. I would not recommend this place. They did an excellent job advertising this "surfcamp".

6/10 Good

Pros: Loved it. All the staff and people here are what make this place an amazing gem. Super friendly, interesting to engage and just beautiful human beings in general. The sense of community here is by far the best experience in Costa Rica I have had. Cons: Only in the interest of helping Dreamsea Surfcamp to grow positively so i make these comments. The communal washrooms and shower on our visit respectfully needed some up-keeping more frequently due to the volume of travellers staying in the camp. The glamping tent we stayed in did not have lighting inside while other’s did have lighting - for consistent safety it would be helpful. Overall, if the capacity for the washrooms / showers / communcal dining were doubled as polished cement structures it would have been ideal and sustainable. For example: Lola’s restroom design in Playa Avellenas would work perfect for the camp. I loved Dreamsea and hope these recommendations do not offend anyone.

Amazing camping experience in the jungle!
Robert runs Dreamsea in Tamarindo. Robert is an incredible host. Dreamsea is the perfect escape for the adventurous. The camp is located a 10 min drive away from town. The environment is laid back and relaxed. They drive you down to the beach every day and they have events and party's at night. The tents were cozy and the meals were always tasty. The volunteers are all really hospitable and welcoming. If you're down for a unique experience, this is for you! The monkeys are loud at night, but for me that was all part of the fun. This is ideal for surfers, yoga enthusiasts, beach bums and free spirits.
