My wife is a first time surfer and afraid of the ocean. I am an slightly experienced surfer with a prosthetic leg. We both had a great time and the staff was patient with my wife and gave me very helpful tips to be a better surfer.

Absolutely the highlight of my trip to Punta Cana. I found Macao Surf Camp online, and booked a reservation online. Rafael picked me up at my hotel on time. Camp was quiet when we arrived and I received great instruction before even hitting the water. Once in the water, my instructor and Rafael were extremely patient and helpful. With their... More

Just got back from our surf lessons here. My boys who have never surfed before had a 2 hour lesson and had a blast. The staff was extremely friendly and gave good instruction. Macao Beach is absolutely stunning! The boys asked if we could go back tomorrow. I think we will! Highly recommended!

Plus i wanted to check it off my bucket list! If i didn't book this excursion I wouldn't probably would want to... More

Our family just returned from a vacation in the Dominican Republic. We organized a surfing lesson for 3 adults and 4 kids before we arrived. Macao Surf Camp picked us up from our hotel at the appointed time and brought us to Macao Beach. We had a great time! The beach is beautiful! The instructors were great - they helped... More

I've visited twice in the last 6 months. They are very professional, respectful, safe and the best of all is that it is very personalized even if the group is big. I had a lot of fun, I was able to get up on my first class easily. Rafael's attentions are the best and all of the teachers know what... More

My partner Jo and I booked a two hour lesson after visiting Macao beach on a quad bike trip. Neither of us had surfed before and are in our mid forties... Armando picked us up from our hotel and took us to the beach and was great company. The beach itself was awesome. Soft sand, shallow warm water with smaller... More

We went with a large group. Waves were not too big the day we went, but it was really fun. Each instructor was helpful and we each were able to get up on the surf board and ride the waves in. We had a plenty of time as we were all tired by the time we finished. The beach is... More

I had the most fantastic time last week doing a group lesson with a few friends. It was our first time surfing and the waves at Macao beach were PERFECT. One side of the beach had smaller waves and another larger ones so it was good for beginners. The instructor was excellent and there was one helper for each surfer... More

This trip is a must if you are in Punta Cana! Don't think you are too old to learn to surf. The superb instructors at Macao Surf Camp were able to teach our group of four older ladies ( and we are all well over 50 and into our 60's ) how to stand up and catch a wave. From... More
