We arrived and were presented with a "deluxe" room. Just because the sign on the door says "deluxe" doesn't mean it is deluxe. We booked through Green Iguana surf camp. We paid approx $600.00 more for the convenience of the planned adventure trip than if we had just shown up with no plans at all & done it all ourselves. Diuwak is the "nicest resort" in town, but for $130.00 per night just to have a murky pool & horrible restaurant within reach was a bit much. Our friends stayed at another inn, 2 minutes away for $40 per night that they said was just as nice, but no murky pool (that no one uses anyway). Dominical is so quaint, but with plenty to do, especially if you are there to surf. Love Dominical & would go back- but not to Diuwak. Green Iguana was a good camp, although we had WAY more than 4 people to each instructor & there was not much in the way of actual instruction. No safety tips for new comers either, which resulted in injuries & shortened surf days.
