Dylan and all his crew at Sunset Surf were fantastic from patiently helping this old fella rekindle his surfing to helping kids to organizing waterfall trips, horse riding, canyoning, surf kayaking, ocean kayaking, zip lining.... the best, and we will be back!

We review lots of Surf tour operators every year in Costa Rica and have yet to find anyone in the Southern region that provides better or even equal service. From the very beginning you can tell these guys know their stuff. Doesn't matter if you are 6 or 70 years old, Dylan Park will get you up surfing. We strongly... More

I was able to spend four days surfing with Dylan and Raymond and I’m hooked for life. These guys are great. They are professional and knowledgeable and still very fun and friendly. They know how to surf, and even more importantly they know how to TEACH surfing. Two days I was with just one or two other new surfers and... More

My kids felt very comfortable with them and managed to get up on the board very quickly thanks to the... More

I just returned from a second time around surfing with Sunset Surf Dominical. It's a wonderful experience, from the people who run it, to the town, the food, and the waves. Dylan is an expert teacher--he reads where the student is and lets them know exactly what to do to get to the next level. I recommend the surf school... More

We have just returned from the vacation of a lifetime with Sunset Surf. We booked a week’s surf package including added attractions and enjoyed every minute of it. Dylan and his team went out of their way to make sure our 5-year old son had the best time ever, while being under constant supervision and safe at all times. Dylan... More

I paid for a two-hour beginner/intermediate lesson and went out with one other student with Raymond as our instructor. I have taken two surf lessons before this one, and I had a hard time even standing. Thanks to Raymond's advice (and patience) I was able to ride a dozen waves, several of them all of the way into shore. The... More

We booked surf lessons for our first day in Dominical, and it was the best thing we could have done. You learn about safety...rip tides, how to deal with the ocean and other surfers. And have an amazing time doing it. My whole family joined in for the first lesson...my wife and I, and my 15 yr old and my... More

Was just down to Dominical on a family holiday and we booked a lesson. We screwed up the day and Dylan was completely flexible and rearranged things for us. We then had our lesson and it was beyond great! Great communication skills, easy to understand, fun, very knowledgable. Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone! Thanks for a lasting memory... More
