I found Dario on my stay to San Juan del Sur and spoke to him and his son in their office one day to learn more about their surfing lessons. They were both so friendly and knowledgeable that we knew we wanted to learn with them. The next day was a total blast! They gave us an on-land lesson, lots... More

Being completely new to surfing (and being the kind of girl who has freaked out on a paddle board in a lake), I was slightly apprehensive to take on the waves of Nicaragua. However, my experience with San Juan del Sur Surf and Sport was completely reassuring, educational, and helpful. All of the instructors there are taught a similar technique... More

My 13-year old son and I went on a 4-hour fishing trip with 2 expert guides. They gave us a great tour of the area on the way out and were very knowledgeable. One hour later, we hadn't caught a thing but as if on cue, the lines started hitting and we caught 12 fish including tuna and dorados. That... More

I just got home from a week in SJDS with 11 of my friends and family, and it wouldn't have been nearly as amazing without San Juan Surf and Sport. Within moments of my first email to them, I had a reply with tons of options of what to do in SJDS, prices, and even opinions of which activities would... More

Used this company while on a group trip a while back. Very accommodating - we went sailing one day with them, then the next on a snorkel trip (snorkeling was unspectacular and water was murky but we got to see turtles mating in the water, dolphins and whales which was definitely a highlight!). They also took us to the beach... More

One of my friends and I took surf lessons through this company, and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I've taken surf lessons before in California and paid over double the cost of what they charge and it doesn't even compare. The amount of time they took far exceeded my exceptions and... More

We have booked a few activities through these guys and all of them have been so much fun! We enjoyed the sunset booze cruise so much we did it twice, we also did a full days fishing trip which was excellent despite the poor weather conditions - the guys kept us upbeat even when we did not catch the fish...

We had a bad experience with on of the other San Juan del Sur surf shops a few years back so were looking for recommendations. We asked around and these guys were recommended because they i) honest guys ii) very friendly iii) fluent English iv) good instruction. They were as good as they were described to be. We will come...

Surf and Sport's sunset cruise was one of the highlights of my San Juan del Sur trip. Great way to make some new friends for the evening and have a few great bears or rum and cokes. At first $20 seemed a bit steep for a two hour boat cruise, but the fun music, great company, unlimited drinks, and gorgeous... More
