Kalon Surf, a Costa Rican Luxury Surf School that Caters to Executives, was Featured in Forbes

Puntarenas, Costa Rica (PRWEB) July 29, 2012

Kalon Surf, a luxury surf school and hotel located in Costa Rica, was recently featured in an article that ran in Forbes. The all inclusive surf school specializes in helping high level members of the business world learn to surf.

As a result of the article by Shah Gilani, one of the owners of the surf school, Kjeld Schigt, was invited to do a short radio interview with a Dutch news channel. Additional stories about Kalon Surf have also appeared recently in Independent, and Grazia France.

In his article, which ran in mid-July, Gilani wrote that surfing is becoming an increasingly common hobby among many people. He noted that Kalon Surf is at the forefront of luxury surf schools that cater to executives, doctors, lawyers, and other elite clientele.

A small but rapidly growing number of corporate executives, successful business owners and entrepreneurs are upping their coolness quotient by learning to surf, Gilani wrote.

These days its not unusual to see surfing listed alongside advanced degrees and corporate experience on fancy resumes making the rounds at oil companies and investment banks.

Schigt, who owns the Costa Rica surf camp along with his wife Silene, said they are currently working on opening a second location sometime next year. Eventually, he said, they hope to expand to five or six schools worldwide, all of which will offer luxury surf for executives.

Before opening their surf camp for beginners, the couple traveled extensively to research quality hotels, resorts, surf schools and surf resorts.

With both Silenes and my background, we have both given up our careers to follow our passion without giving up our ambitions, Schigt noted, adding that Silene previously worked for HSBC and HP while he was with Heineken, BP and Unilever.

For people who want to learn to surf Costa Rica based Kalon Surf offers luxurious accommodations along with the best surf camp experience. By the time every guest leaves Kalon Surf, Schigt said they will have learned enough about surfing to allow them to enjoy the sport for the rest of their lives.

Exhilarating Adventures: Go Visit Costa Rica Launches New Rincon de la Vieja Section

(PRWEB) December 15, 2005

December 14, 2005 – GoVisitCostaRica.com, one of the most referenced websites by Costa Rica travelers today, launches its new Rincon de la Vieja Area section. GoVisitCostaRica.com invites adventure lovers of all ages to explore the fantastic Rincon de la Vieja Area with its new map and area information.

Aiming to provide a more all-encompassing Costa Rican vacation, Go Visit Costa Rica’s Rincon de la Vieja section lets one explore this gorgeous Central American country in depth, so as to have a truly terrific vacation. An eco-adventure hotspot, North Guanacaste is home to three national parks and one protected zone, offering tourists some of the most lush and tropical forest to trek, home to a plethora of fascinating and captivating plant and animal life.

With four volcanoes, namely the Rincon de la Vieja, the Orosi, the Santa Maria and the Miravalles, all within close proximity to one another, North Guanacaste is perhaps one of the most easily accessible places in the country, less than an hour away from the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste.

Encompassing the Parque Nacional Santa Rosa, the Parque Nacional Rincon de la Vieja, the Parque Nacional Guanacaste and the Zona Protectora Miravalles, North Guanacaste boasts breathtaking vistas atop volcanic craters, stunning sceneries, glorious waterfalls, meandering hiking trails, bubbling mud pools and soothing hot springs.

An adventure lover’s dream destination, the Rincon de la Vieja Area in North Guanacaste is also a historically significant with the Battle of Hacienda Santa Rosa fought here in 1856 in the Santa Rosa National Park. This battle’s importance lies in the fact that a militia army of Costa Ricans drove out American filibuster William Walker from the country into neighboring Nicaragua.

A great way to explore this fabolous area is via a canopy tour. Offering some truly dramatic views of the forests below, a canopy tour lets one spot some of Costa Rica’s incredible wildlife high atop one of the last remaining tropical dry forests in Central America. For the more adventurous, try tubing down the many rivers in the area or enjoying a quick dip in hot sulphurous springs. The horseback riding trails here are some of the best in the country, or if you are an avid surfer try surfing at Witches Rock, considered to be one of the best surf breaks in the world. For those who are more daring, a climb to the top of the Rincon de la Vieja summit is an awesome sight to behold.

SurfVouher.com a niche travel agency in Costa Rica is now offering new Surfing Vacation packages with a twist.

Typical surf vacation packages offer a fixed schedule and include only the most recognized locations and not always "best" surfing destinations in Costa Rica. As a result, visitors can find themselves at beaches where the surfing conditions weren’t what they expected or just don’t meet their surfing style and expertise.

SurfVoucher.com is now offering the “Surf and Drive” vacation packages where tourists coming to Costa Rica have the option of visiting ALL the surfing spots in the country without having to worry about swells, crowds or sea conditions. With “Surf Vouchers”, Surfers are able to enjoy the most popular surf destinations in Costa Rica and have access to other locations off the beaten track for one single affordable fee.

For $ 389 travelers are greeted at the airport by a company representative and escorted to a pre-booked accommodation in the central valley. Once you arrive, guests are provided the SurfVoucher.com vacation guide and the “Surf Vouchers” for the amount of nights purchased, which can be used at all participating hotels as a form of payment.

On the following morning, the car rental company will deliver your pre-paid SUV (included in the $ 389) and explains their terms and drop off policies. From there surfers are free to drive to any of the 75 surfing destinations in Costa Rica, where they'll find several participating hotels.

If the surfing conditions don't meet the traveler expectations, the weather is awful or the beach is too crowded travelers are free to drive, at any time, to a different location and choose a different participating hotel, or take advantage of the SUV rental and sleep where the night life is active and take a daily trip to any of the other nearby Surfing Spots.

Surf Voucher S.A. is a travel agency in Costa Rica owned and managed by a young team of travel specialist and surf enthusiasts that have traveled and surfed the entire country, creating a vacation package specially designed to provide the most complete surfing experience in Costa Rica.
