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.

My son and I took a lesson and we were working with Alex. He was really cool and extremely helpful. My son was able to stand up on his first wave. 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

I moved to Costa Rica a year ago and just started to learn how to surf. After asking around and researching the various schools and professionals who can teach I ended up choosing Jaco Surf Club. Mauricio and Alex are both professionals and have the ability to teach all ages and skill levels. It is one thing to be an... More

Mauricio and Alex were awesome. Very informative and we were instructed fully before hitting the water. They made sure we were comfortable with the steps and were awesome at making sure we were successful with our surfing. Great people and made the experience fun! Will be back for more lessons in the future! Thanks guys!

I think the people who wrote positive reviews about this place are confusing it with "jaco surf SCHOOL" We went to this surf club yesterday with 2 friends of mine and it was really bad. Everything was fine until we got on the beach...They had only 3-4 surf shirts and they were all very dirty and nasty. They had only... More

He made it super easy and within 20 minutes both of us were riding a wave in!! We have never surfed before and to be honest... More

Stood up about a dozen times with Mauricio! He is awesome, extremely helpful in all areas! He will answer all your questions and show you a good time! He will take you to the proper beach for your skill level. He knows his stuff, give him a try, you won't regret it!

Mauricio and Joshua are top knotch. My family came to vacation at playa hermosa. I surf but I wanted someone else to teach them to keep it fun. These guys are extremely knowledgeable, and super friendly. They were very accomodating to all of us. They taught my wire (42) and my children 12 and 9. They were all standing up... More
