Great time today with Dante's water sports. He picked us up on time and brought us to his location on the beach where he had tents, chairs and all the equipment. They were all very friendly and easy going.. Usual Tico style! They taught us for an hour or so then we have a break with fresh coconut water, pineapple... More

My husband, our friend and I signed up for surfing lessons and had a blast! Jesse provided us with great instructions and was out there with us, encouraging and giving tips, the whole time. All in all, a great experience!

Two of our family took morning surfing lessons with Dante Water Sports in June. They both enjoyed their first surfing experience with their instructors and were even able to stay up for a bit! Shade and refreshments were provided for the surfers while they rested and for the the rest of the family while we were watching our surfers. Dante... More

Our family of four are first time surfers and we loved it. The staff was absolutely lovely but you must request manases! He was equally amazing and patient with our 10 year old son as with his Dad! He spoke enough English to really understand our needs. Manases is a teacher at heart and he made our experience at Dante... More

Our family of 6 (including 4 children ages 8-11) had surfing lessons this morning through Dante's Water Sports. Our instructors were Jessy, Manases, Mago and Bayron. The instructors were awesome! None of the kids had surfed before, but they each had their own instructor and within a few minutes they were all able to get up on the board. I... More

Our family of 5 (Mom, Dad and three boys - ages 18, 16, 11) visited Manuel Antonio for part of our Costa Rica trip. The boys wanted to rent surf boards for a day and the older two were adamant that they DID NOT need lessons or an instructor because they had surfed before. How dare I suggest that they... More

I went to Manuel Antonio with my friend who really wanted to go surfing. We ended up surfing with Dante's and I'm so glad that we did. I had never surfed before but after a two hour lesson I was standing up and everything! The location is also amazing!! Lovely waves and just a gorgeous beach. The instructors were very... More

I'd surfed before, a few times, and went to Costa Rica to get a refresher for the summer. Jesse was our instructor, he was very knowledgeable, gave me the tips and help I wanted, clearly knew what he was doing, and was very hard working. I was there with a couple of friends who hadn't surfed before, and he got... More
