Zancudo Surf Lodge - Costa Rica Surf Vacation Images

Zancudo Surf Lodge - OVERVIEW

Surfers and tropical sports fishermen have similar needs: fast boats driven by dialed-in skipper/guides who have local knowledge in their DNA, can read conditions like a book and get you to where the surf is pumping. Speed and safety from the lodge to the surf and home and then after: comfort, communications, cold drinks, healthy food, shade for siestas, soft beds and modern comforts.

Located in the Golfo Dulce, only four miles from the airport town of Golfito and close to the mouth of the Sabalo River, Zancudo Lodge has long been the #1 fishing lodge in Costa Rica, and they are making an easy transition into one of the top surf resorts for the wide variety of quality surf breaking on both sides of the Golfo Dulce. The lodge itself is equidistant from the world-class left point at Pavones on the south side of the Gulf, and the world-class right points at Matapalo on the north side.

Zancudo Lodge is quiet and isolated in a protected estuary on the other side of a peninsula from a long, three-mile beach. Welcome to the jungle, the lodge is known for fine dining and luxurious accommodations – away from the world but still connected.

Surfers are now learning what fishermen have known for 20 years: Zancudo Lodge is a quality ramp for launching missions into the energy of the Costa Rican Pacific. And if the surf is down, there is always fishing, jungle hikes, whale watching and a dozen other activities in a place where the jungle is as wild as the sea.
