The title says it all...my husband and I just returned from a week at Kalon Surf and it was by far the best vacation we've ever been on. If you're looking for a trip where you feel accomplished, relaxed, in good health and well-fed WHILE having the best time ever then this is the trip for you. You'll meet amazing...

My wife and I spent last week at Kalon, and had a terrific experience. It’s a high-end surfing school tailored for the beginner but still plenty of fun for an intermediate surfer. (It is not for someone who wants to charge big Costa Rica surf – for this, go to one of the many surf camps.) The best part for...

4 of us stayed at Kalon last week and it was nothing short of a magical experience. Everything was absolutely fabulous! You can tell the main focus of the week is surfing but food comes in as a close second. The meals were amazingly creative and just as delicious. I’m a huge fan of the organic way they put their...

Where do i start with this piece of heaven? After a long winter we were really looking forward to getting away from it all and spending a week concentrating on our board technique in the water (just standing up!). On arrival into San Jose we were met by Andreas who drove us to Kalon which is located a few hours...

Kalon Surf exceeded my expectations. The staff were kind and helpful, the mansion was gorgeous, the food delectable, and nice SUVs for transportation. I would highly recommend this destination to anyone interested in a surfing vacation. Go as a beginner and return home loving surfing!

Kalon Surf Camp…. I think of a boutique Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Hotel Sofitel… with surfing… They pick you up from the airport in San Jose with their own driver and SUV. Room and accommodations are first class. Once getting there, the property is gorgeous, in fact their website doesn’t do it justice. I went by myself and didn’t know...

My husband and I stayed at Kalon Surf with our friends (2 other couples) and had a very memorable vacation. The six of us travel often together and we like to stay active while also taking some time to relax. Kalon was a great mix of physical activity and relaxation. None of us had ever surfed before and we enjoyed...

I stayed at Kalon in March 2015 with my teenage daughter. I've been surfing for a few years, and my daughter had been surfing maybe once or twice. I've been to several surf camps over the years, and this is by far the best one I've ever attended. If you've searched around, you already know it's on the expensive side,...

If you want a to learn to surf on secluded beaches where it is almost always only you and your group and instructors you should come here.

Kalon is an interesting place. I’m not sure how to describe the experience- on the one hand it was a great escape from the monotony of my normal life, but…. on the other it was kind of a let down. It could be my expectations were too high but …the house was gorgeous, though;). Nice open and airy, the house...
