They were also very accommodating as one of my girl friends was a little more advanced so Alejandro took her farther out and Mauricio stayed with my friend and I. This was my 2nd surf lesson but my 1st time actually "surfing" thanks to Mauricio's great instruction. He also... More

Mauricio set us up with a great plan for 6 days of surfing, 3 days of stand-up paddle-boarding (SUP), & 3 days of surfing classes. Incredibly reasonable rates! We will definitely be back and recommend them to our friends. Mauricio and Alex treated us like friends. My fiancé had never surfed before. I hadn't surfed in 6 years. Alex helped... More

I hadn't surfed in about 1.5 years, and Mauricio at Jaco Surf Club got me feeling comfortable in the water in no time. By the end of my trip I was able to catch a wave out deep and ride it in. Mauricio was patient and solid instructor that definitely helped me advance my surf skills.

I’m rather large and not a teenager but Alex was able to get me standing up on a larger board. What was really exceptional about our lesson is how... More
