The open voucher / surf voucher program has been created to provide you with a means to visit all of Costa Rica's surf spots at your leisure. You have total freedom to choose between all of the participating hotels in those great surfing spots as well as the amount of time you spend there without having to make any prior reservation, you'll be able to choose where to go and for how long to stay.

The hotels and lodges are all strategically placed along both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, thereby guaranteeing the ideal surfing vacation. And another great thing about the location of all accommodation is that if by any chance weather conditions do not permit surfing, then you have the opportunity (and freedom) to travel to any other surf spot in a comfortable 4×4 knowing that the accommodation there will accept the surf voucher as payment.

When you arrive at the Juan Santamaria International Airport, you will be met by an English speaking representative of surfvoucher.com who will not only welcome you, but also escort you to your pre-booked hotel at the Central Valley. You will also receive the "surf vouchers" which will enable you to pay your hotel accommodations and any other service requested. The representative will brief you on all the participating hotels as well as giving you a map on all the roads and surfing hotspots, directions and all the current and expected surfing conditions during your stay in Costa Rica.

The following morning you will have the 4×4 delivered to your hotel from the car rental company including all the relevant insurance and documents, as well as unlimited mileage. As soon as you take delivery of the vehicle, you are free to travel to wherever you wish in search of that hot surf spot.

Open Voucher / Surf Voucher Vacation Itinerary

Day 1: Upon your arrival our English speaking representative will escort you in a comfortable minivan to the one of the pre booked hotel in the central valley. The guide will explain and provide the Vouchers for the remaining nights to use in any of the participating hotels throughout Costa Rica.

Day 2: After breakfast the Car Rental Company will deliver your pre paid 4×4 directly to the hotel, where he'll explain all the terms and offer all the additional services available. You are now free to start exploring Costa Rica.

During Your Vacation: For each of the following nights you will receive a "Surf Voucher", which can be used in any of the participating hotels throughout Costa Rica. You'll be free to decide where, when and for how long to stay at each destination. We make sure to have multiple options at or close to each beach in all the major surfing spots in both the Pacific and Atlantic coast to ensure you'll always have a place to stay wherever and for however long you choose to stay. The "Surf Vouchers" are valid for "standard" rooms at all the participating hotels, in the case at the hotel of your choice there are no "standard" rooms available, the hotel may offer an upgrade to an available higher category room at an extra charge. You'll always have the option of paying the surcharge or moving to a different participating hotel nearby. One of our representatives will always be available 24/7 to assist you in finding a sleeping accommodation wherever you are.

Last Day: Depending on your flight schedule you have the option of using the "Surf Vouchers" to spend the last night in one of the participating hotels in the central valley or at any beach. Before your arrival at the airport you'll have to drop off the 4×4 at the company's offices where a free shuttle will take you to the airport. If previously agreed with the car rental company they might pick it up from the participating hotel in the Central Valley, make sure to ask the hotel if they offer free transportation to the airport or you might have to pay an additional fee. Take into consideration that the car rental drop off will take some time depending on the queue and that you must arrive at the Airport a couple of hours before departure, we highly recommend spending the last night in the central valley to prevent delays and to allow you to check in at the airport without any time pressure.

How Does the Open Voucher Vacation Work

We have signed agreements with several hotels in the central valley and throughout the north, central, south Pacific and Altantic coast of Costa Rica where you’ll be using our vouchers, delivered by our guide on your arrival to San Jose, as a form of payment.

The biggest and most important difference from a normal vacation is the simple fact that you do not have a pre-booked nights (apart from your first one in San Jose) so you are free to move wherever you want in more than 75 beaches with the additional comfort of having your own 4×4 vehicle with unlimited mileage included in the price.

Since your stay in the hotels isn’t be pre-booked we have negotiated with all the hotels the best possible walk-in fair which guarantees the surf voucher vacation to be an affordable solution to all travelers. The same happens with the 4×4 rental, given the volume of tourists that come to Costa Rica through our program we’ve negotiated one of the cheapest rates for 4×4 rental in the country.

In the guide provided upon your arrival you’ll find the directions and contact number of all the participating hotels. You’ll be free to decide where, when and for how long to stay at each of the beaches in Costa Rica. You’ll only need to identify yourself as a participant of the Surf Voucher program, deliver the Voucher to the receptionist and the hotel staff will take care of all your needs, if by any chance you find yourself stuck in bad weather or bad surfing conditions the next day you’ll be free to take your car and move to the next spot without the hassle of cancelling and making reservations nor paying any extra fee, just pick up your bags, get in the car and drive to the next paradisiacal location.
