I have never been on a board before so this was all new to me, but with Marcos tutoring I was riding waves already on the second day! He is so enthusiastic about what he does and... More

Costa Rica SUP Stand Up Paddle Adventures is a brilliant holiday. As a keen surfer and a relatively new Paddle boarder I found Marco's service first class. My paddle boarding and surfing improved dramatically under Marco's tutoring. On top of the surfing his service was great, always doing the little bit extra. The other guides/instructors Lydia and Jose were equally... More

I adored Marco and Lydia. They were so helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I completely trusted them. I was a first time paddle boarder (so a little nervous) and they were so helpful. They ensured the ocean conditions were perfect before taking us out (we went in the morning & the ocean was rough, so they had us come back in... More
