You will be staying at the five-star Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel. Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel has beautiful amenities and is at a prime location. It is less than a 10-minute walk to the beach, five minutes to the gym, and just two minutes away from the center of town.

Hero Academy BJJ Costa Rica rent the entire hotel for the event. Everyone gets their own room. There are AC, refrigerators, Wi-Fi, and TV. Kindly note that there is no area to prepare your own food.

Since you have gi and no-gi sessions every day, Hero Academy BJJ Costa Rica will wash those clothes for you after every session. If you need other laundry done, it is at your own expense. There are multiple options to do so from the hotel and in town.

Program

What’s the interaction with other campers and instructors like?

There will be between 30-40 people on the mats. You will have access to the instructors to ask questions and they also offer privates for an additional cost while you’re here. All the campers will stay in the same hotel and you will share the common spaces. Your interaction level is up to you. As much or as little as you like.

Everyone has breakfast together before training and there are excursions and outings planned every day. Everything is optional. There will be a WhatsApp group and people constantly communicate through that to see what everyone is doing.

You will typically have two sessions a day. Each session is one to one and a half long. Of course, you can train more. If you are a glutton for punishment the team can set up some extra mat time for you.

What’s the training space like?

Hero Academy is a 4,000+ square foot training facility. Open-air with a nice cross breeze. Plenty of mat space for a large group.

Family-friendly retreat

This retreat is family-friendly. If you want to add your family, Hero Academy BJJ Costa Rica is happy to work out some pricing for you. Just let them know will happily customize your accommodations and get you some pricing.

You can also come alone. You will make new best friends on the first day. Many ‘new’ people come every year and are quickly welcomed into the family. Most people attending Hero Camps, return and attend multiple camps per year with different instructors. This experience is second to none.
