Our family of 5 (mom, dad, 3 daughters 13, 16, 18) traveled to Dominical in late July. Our first activity was a surf lesson with Dylan and Jossue. It was such a great experience – starting weeks earlier as I was communicating with Dylan via email. He was very responsive and answered all of my questions. When we arrived bright... More

As was the case 3 years ago this operation rocks. I was solo this time and signed up for the surf camp to force myself out and to force myself to learn and get better. Between Dylan and Jossue I accomplished everything I could have hoped for. They were great at adapting the lessons to my skill and fitness. Improved... More

I am a single parent and was looking for a spring break trip for my 17-year-old son and I to enjoy. We live in landlocked Colorado and surfing sounded like a great change of pace. We set our goal to surf a wave by the end of the week. We were surfing the first day! To further describe the amazing... More

In June, we traveled to Dominical with a group of four adults and 14 children ranging in ages from 8-17. Our trip is designed to center around surfing and other adventurous activities only found in Costa Rica.

Excellent experience for the whole family. We felt completely safe with our 10 year old twins learning to surf with Dylan and Jossue. In addition to learning to surf, we learned about Tico culture and the local way of life. We cannot recommend Sunset Surf strongly enough. We would recommend alternate day lessons for 2 weeks if you can (rather... More
