Located in the heart of Dominical, the Blue Shack is a two minute walk from the surf, and all local activities and tours. Surf lessons, zip line tours, waterfall tours, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling, rafting and kayaking, whale watching and bird watching tours, yoga and dance classes, jungle treks, horseback riding and yes, even basket weaving/arts and crafts classes! If you're not feeling too adventurous, take a nice sunset stroll on the beach, or relax with a good book in a hammock while watching the surf. Beautiful animal/bird filled marshes, and ocean surf/river mouth views. And although within walking distance of over 10 local bars and restaurants, you will always get a quiet, peaceful sleep at The Blue Shack. Dominical beach has lifeguards on duty every day of the week, and with some of the best surf schools and instructors in Costa Rica, you're sure to have a great time in the waves! And make sure you get to Dominical Sushi for a Tico Roll and the best fresh fish in town!
