We are in one of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches of the Dominican Republic, on the Punta Cana area: Macao Beach, a localism free beach where everybody is welcome, with six different breaks and one of the safest beaches to learn how to surf, and yet exciting enough for experienced surfers. Literally making dreams come true, specially for those that dreamed all their life about riding waves, for those that want to make Surfing their main sports activity, and also for those that just want to get Surfing out of their "bucket list". Surf Shack with showers and lockers. « less

First of all, Rafael and his partners rock! Anyone that decides to go with this excursion will not regret! Before I went to Punta Cana, a friend mentioned to me that out of all the all-inclusives he has been, MSC surf lesson is one of the greatest excursion. Therefore, I decided to take my first ever surfing lesson with MSC... More

It was my third time being staying in Dominican Republic but I had a dream to surf from the first visit to this magic country. So, I've done it with your help, I'm so happy!! You are the... More

My family recently visited Macao Surf Camp. From the time we were picked up at our resort, to the time we were dropped off we enjoyed every second. We were greeted at our resort by Gustavo and Jack the dog and drove the 25 minutes to the Camp. It was great to have Gustavo give us a "guided tour" of... More

We had an absolutely great time at Macao beach. They make surfing as easy as standing up. It was the most beautiful beach we visited on our trip. Our only gripe is with the "instructors". They are mostly young men who do not have very good English but are able to give very basic corrections. My wife and I paid... More

Rafael and his crew do a great job. The communication was superb from beginning to end and booking and paying and everything was very easy. They collected us on time from our hotel (10:30), got us to the beach (Macao beach is very very nice) and got us into rash guards and began instructions within 10 minutes. Rafael gave the... More

I like the deep ocean waters, the instructors are patient especially if you never did it before. I will definitely do it again

Our visit to Macao Surf Camp was July 24, 2014. We booked /paid on their website and arranged pickup time at our resort through email (prior to our arrival in the D.R.). Gustavo picked us up on time & was a very friendly driver. The bonus was Jack (the surfing dog) came along for our drive. When we arrived, Gustavo... More
