Endless Summer Roadtrip

We road-trip through Costa Rica's famous Nicoya region, beginning in the north in Tamarindo to hit up some amazing surf breaks perfect for beginners and experts before heading south down the coast to the chill surf town of Santa Teresa.

Our time on the coast will be spent surfing a ton, partying a ton, enjoying life on the beach and experiencing the 'Pura Vida' (good life) culture of the local Ticos!

Finishing off the trip in the mountain town of Monteverde in Costa Rica's cloud forests gives you the chance to see a whole other side of the country's beauty. In the high elevation jungles, you'll see gorgeous views and an array of exotic wildlife including sloths, coatis, monkeys and a huge array of Disney-like tropical birds!

The amazing sights and sounds of Costa Rica will follow you everywhere on this crazy fun road-trip and with tons of extra activities and stops along the way, there's an infinity of ways to enjoy this adventure!

I traveled with FnEZ on the 10-day endless summer trip in Costa Rica. Free & Easy definitely exceeded ALL expectations I had. The people whom you met and travel with are so easy going and friendly. I felt right at home with my group. Every day was awesome. We’d do one activity which was an amazing experience...and then the next day they offer another amazing experience that it’s hard to say which day was my favourite. I just want to say thanks to Free & Easy for putting so much care and attention into planning the trip so that it’s a great experience for us!
