Aside from daily stretch classes and massage therapy sessions, we also give you the choice of an activity to do on the Wednesday, which is your mid-week “day off” from being coached.

For non-surfing partners, we can set up any/all of these activities as well as massages or anything else in Nosara that you would like to do. Surf Simply will cover the fee of all activities, classes and treatments. We will also coordinate transfers as needed to and from each activity. We’ll gladly to help confirm any of the listed bookings per your feedback on your pre-arrival questionnaire. 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding & Kayaking

We’ve teamed up with Experience Nosara to offer stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. You can specify whether you would like to glide down the river through the mangroves, paddle out to check out the waves at one of the offshore reefs in the area or allow your knowledgeable guides to take you to wherever they think will be the most beautiful given the condition that day.


We have teamed up with Miss Sky Canopy Tours to offer zip lining as an option for your Wednesday, “day off” activity. This is not for the faint-hearted as you’ll be hundreds of feet up in the air enjoying some beautiful views as you whizz between the hills around Nosara. Don’t forget to bring some lace-up shoes for when you’re coming in to land though. During the green season, you will also have the opportunity to swim in the waterfall.

Horseback Riding

We have teamed up with Playa Ponies to offer horseback riding as an option for your Wednesday, “day off” activity. Playa Ponies is where Surf Simply coach, Jessie keeps her own horse, Ozzie. The stables take excellent care of all their horses, so you can feel good about riding these much loved animals through the jungle trails or along the beach depending on where your guide feels will be most picturesque that day.

Nosara’s Reforestation Project

Barrí-Guiones are a local non profit working to replant trees deforested areas of Nosara including the beach front. You will be taught about the local trees and the challenges facing the project. You will then be given the opportunity to leave your personal mark by planting your own tree here in Nosara.



We have teamed up with Climb Nosara, to offer climbing as another Wednesday, “day off” activity. You’ll be taught basic technique and safety, and then be given the opportunity to climb increasingly difficult routes up Nosara’s new, purpose built climbing wall. All the Surf Simply coaches enjoy the climbing wall but no one has yet managed to complete the black route on the west face. Will you?

Birdwatching Tours and Nature Hikes

For this tour you get to choose to do the hike with Experience Nosara at Nosara’s Biological Reserve or at the beautiful property around Mala Noche Waterfall. In both locations you can see a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic bird species. Our guide will provide information about amazing birds and nature along the way. Experienced bird watchers will also learn from local birds and will have the chance to get nice pictures.


Mountain Biking

We have teamed up with Ricardo at Nosara Mountain Bike & Surf, to offer you the option of biking the trials behind the Surf Simply resort as another Wednesday, “day off” activity. You’ll be shown how to navigate the jungle paths which chase through the hills behind the Surf Simply resort. Ricardo will give you various options of trail depending on your experience and also he will give you the chance to push yourself if you would like to.

Sports Fishing

We have teamed up several local charter boat captains so that we can also offer sports fishing as a Wednesday, “day off” activity. You’ll be out on the boat for about four hours, fishing 5-10 miles offshore. Common catches include Dorado, Sail Fish, and Yellow Fin Tuna. A minimum group size of 4 people is required to charter a sports fishing boat.
