I just returned from a solo trip to Rincon and stayed at the Boarding House. It was lovely. Erica was very helpful not only about the lodging, but about any questions I had about the area. The accommodations were neat, clean, safe, and quiet. The location is near a lot of great local places that I could drive too (I... More

We booked a last minute surf trip to Rincon for a long weekend. Other reviews for this place seemed favorable so we booked the studio knowing we would probably be out surfing and sightseeing all day and would only need a simple place to sleep at night. Unfortunately I hate to ever give negative reviews but in this case we... More

We were actually staying somewhere else in Rincon but would gladly have switched our reservations if we could have. Carlos & Erica are just wonderful people and were extremely helpful. We were able to book an entire afternoon out surfing with our kids and Carlos and the other instructors were amazing with our young children. The kids had a blast... More

Erica the surf school owner, and our surf teacher Leo, are just fabulous, with personal connection, attention to detail, and the most clear, encouraging instruction you could ever imagine. Truly wonderful people, as well as professionals who really know their stuff. I can't recommend them highly enough! We learned so much and we had a great time, and we were... More

I love the boarding house I stayed there last year and again this year. It is in a great location with beautiful views of the ocean. The roof top was a perfect place for me to watch the sunset read a book and just relax. Close to some of my favorite Rincon restaurants and the owner is one of the... More

My daughter and I had lessons with Leo. We had a great great time. Leo was patient with us and we had a great time. Jobos beach was beautiful.

I wanted to thank Erica for a great surfing experience for my family. The house was very clean and the view from the roof is great. Leo the surf instructor we had was the best...he had my kids surfing in less than 2 hours and me at least standing on the board for more than a few seconds, it sucks... More

My father and I went out for a day for our first try at surfing and we're standing up by the end of the day. Our instructors handled the group of us beautifully. Upping the challenge a bit for those that were learning more quickly and encouraging the others along patiently. What an awesome experience. Well done, guys! Just wish... More

He is an awesome teacher and travel guide. I was watching others who were conducting lessons in the area and there was no... More

We planned two days surfing in puerto rico and booked before hand with boarding house. However, first day morning Erica let us know that the weather was not good and they could not take us. As it was our only chance we tried with another surf school from the tripadvisor list and they took us. However the beach was not... More
