Guru Profile

Maya Gabeira

This trip is inspired by ZOZI Guru Maya Gabeira. From renowned adventurers to celebrity chefs, the ZOZI Guru team consists of some of the world’s most accomplished professionals.

Maya Gabeira is no stranger to making waves. She started surfing at 14 and while her infatuation was immediate, her ability took a little longer to develop. With incredible determination and the help of her mentor, Carlos Burle, Maya has won four consecutive Billabong XXL Big Wave awards, an ESPY, and is arguably the world's most famous female big wave surfer.

Itinerary

Day 1: San Jose

The bustling streets of Costa Rica's capital city may not reflect the natural beauty that the country is known for, but its markets and museums are still ripe with intrigue.

Days 2-3: Tortuguero National Park

Famed as one of nature's greatest turtle hatcheries, Tortuguero National Park is a biologically diverse region that's home to species ranging from jaguars and monkeys to caimans and manatees.

Days 4-5: Sarapiqui

When it comes to conservation, Sarapiqui is king. A Caribbean lowland, it's a premier location for catching sight of exotic birds and fluorescent reptiles.

Day 6: Santa Rosa de Pocosol

Live like a local with a homestay at a family farm deep in the Costa Rican countryside. Soak in the simplicity with a lazy afternoon of mud-splattered chores and fishing for dinner in a nearby stream.

Days 7-8: La Fortuna/Arenal Volcano

Any town that lies at the base of an active volcano is fascinating, and La Fortuna is no exception. A mix of sleepy farm town and jungle village, it's an adventurer's dream.

Days 9-11: Monteverde

An emerald oasis where thick jungle treetops peek through a mystifying layer of fog, a visit to the Monteverde Cloud Forest reveals the world's most resplendent display of exotic plants and wildlife.

Days 12-13: Quepos

Head to the glittering Pacific for a taste of “pura vida” at Quepo. Popular surf breaks and an authentic Latin American spirit are the hallmarks of this laid-back locale.

Days 14-15: San Jose

Leave Costa Rica's cloud forests behind in favor of the urban jungle with a final tour of the sights, smells, and flavors found on San Jose's storied streets.
