Las Palmeras Surf camp is now beachfront with a private resort with ocean views right on the beach at Playa Brasil! The new camp (opened up in 2017) has three beautiful cabañas, each one with two separate rooms, and space for up to 3 people per room. Each room has queen sized beds, private bathroom with hot water, A/C, WiFi and Google Chrome built into each television. The cabañas have their own private garden area where you can relax, stretch, or practice yoga beneath the shade of the native Brasil Trees. The cabañas have their own terraces with ocean views where you can watch the waves out front and listen to the ocean from your hammock.
There is a restaurant where you will be enjoying the delicious meals Las Palmeras is famous for. The restaurant is beneath a large palapa with a shaded terrace and bar where you can enjoy your favorite beverage, watch television, or battle it out on the ping pong table. There are still amenities such as ice cream, snacks and alcohol available at the camp for sale if you so desire.
If you want to swim, or just relax in the water after you surf, you will be able to do so in the new swimming pool situated directly in front of the ocean. The pool also has a small area specifically designed for young children where they can enjoy a safe and shallow zone to splash, swim and play in.
There are also yoga matts, foam rollers, guitars if you want to play some music, and books to read. There are surf videos, Netflix, cable TV and other movies if you want to watch the television to unwind. In your air-conditioned room, you will be provided with fresh towels, clean sheets, soap and lotion daily. The rooms will be cleaned every day while you are surfing. The new resort has an amazing view the ocean, where you can watch the sun set over Punta Chivo to the west and enjoy the ocean breeze.
In 2020 Las Palmeras Surf Camp can accommodate up to 18 people divided into groups of 4 or 5 to match up with our 4wd vehicles. Las Palmeras does it’s best to put groups together in the same rooms. If you are traveling alone, they will try to get you a private room depending on space, but you most likely will share a room with one other person.
