Playa Grande Surf Shop, Costa Rica

Playa Grande Surf Shop, Costa Rica

Where your positive vacation experience is as important to us as it is to you.

Frijoles Locos Surf Shop is much more than just a surf shop; it is a vacationer’s amenity, the go-to place for advice on where to eat, what to do, for rental equipment, for surf lessons and fun for the whole family. Onsite there is also El Frijol Feliz Day Spa, where you can enjoy excellent professional massages and other spa treatments.

Ensure that your Playa Grande surfing vacation experience is better than you expected and let us help you organize it ahead of time.

At Frijoles Locos Surf Shop, you will be greeted with a smile, friendly service, a helpful attitude and you will walk away feeling like your visit was worthwhile. If you are not happy, we are listening! No one can continue to improve without constructive criticism and yours is always welcome.

Feel good about choosing Frijoles Locos to provide what you need- we discourage the use of single-use plastic bags. If you need a bag, we have saved the packaging from merchandise to re-use. We recycle plastic bottles, glass bottles and cans. Our son’s school, La Paz School, enjoys receiving left over packaging for art-projects rather than adding more fill to the trash dump.

Pack for a Purpose is another initiative that has enabled many a visitor feel good about giving back to the community they visited. Thank you to everyone who has filled some luggage space with supplies – these help to enhance the education of scholarship kids in La Paz Community School. 

Starting season 2014/15 we have a NO PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE policy. In conjunction with Hurley and Waves for Water, Frijoles Locos will provide visitors to Playa Grande unlimited free water bottle refills from our water fountain in-store. Read more about it in our blog post titled “Refill, not Replace”.

Contact us for your next Playa Grande trip, and your body, mind and soul will thank you!
