Mauricio was the best surf instructor! Our first trip to Costa Rica and our three kids caught so many waves with his instruction. He was positive, helpful and just a really nice guy. We are going back and will definitely surf with Jaco Surf Club again! The Lukes Family Colorado

Our family of four took a two hour group lesson and loved it! Mauricio and his crew were extremely attentive and made sure that everyone surfed to the best of their ability. Highly recommended for families!

What an amazing experience. Both Alejandro and Mauricio were great instructors! 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
