Pack for a Purpose

Coming down for a surf trip? Want to help our local community? It's easy!

Here are some ways that you can help out through Pack for a Purpose. All new or gently used materials will be accepted with open arms.

  • The schools in Nosara lack many basic school supplies, including: notebooks, white paper, construction paper, pens, pencils, erasers, scissors, glue, crayons, colored pencils, geometry sets, chalk, whiteboard markers, etc. When you see a sale, stock up!
  • Help enrich our classrooms by bringing puzzles, counting sets, blocks, simple bilingual picture books, clay/play dough, art and craft supplies, calculators….get creative!
  • Pack your gently worn clothing, shoes, backpacks, etc. (men, women, and children) in the extra space in your luggage.


Safari Surf School’s Sustainability Initiatives are an integral part of who we are as a company. The continued, sustainable growth of Nosara, and the well-being of the local population and the community are things we strive to improve on a daily basis. Through our work with Pack for a Purpose¬†and the Surfing Nosara Foundation, we’ve been working hard to make our dream of a more sustainable, prosperous Nosara and Costa Rica a reality.

Learning English is one of the key factors to finding a rewarding job and enjoying success in Costa Rica. One of our main community initiatives is making sure that every Nosara student has the resources to learn effectively, but also to learn English. We’re on a mission to create libraries of English books at each local school in the area. Please take some time before you depart to visit Safari Surf School and consider packing any school supplies and/or gently used English Children’s Books into your luggage. Thank you!!!
