After the lesson we rented surfboards from these guys 3 more days and they provided soft racks so we could strap the boards to our rental... More

The tour was very organized, we paid all our tours through Uvita Information Center. We had early kayaking around the beach then we went snorkling close to whale tail area. The entry of the natural park was included. There was an option to see birds and kayak around a nearby river more but we stay as the kids were tired... More

A paddle board costs around $1500 plus the paddle ($200). Finnally, we have the best experience in town about SUP. Our guides are national championships of Costa Rica so the equipment we... More

We were lucky that there was only us on the tour. The instructor was happy to leave us snorkel a bit longer than usual. He was good at pointing out where the school of fish are. The sea was very calm so the kayaking was pretty easy. A bit of workout and fantastic snorkeling.

I found that the school and teacher were really really good. My girlfriend fell is through food poisoning the day before and we had to cancel for the next day. The school made no issue at all and was very kind. The teacher was very good at explaining how to start surfing and explaining what he wanted to achieve with... More

Unfortunately we didn't get to go on the snorkelling tour (due to a minor accident with our car that involved having to wait 2.5 hours for the insurance guy and police) but Diego (one of the co-owners) waited with us the entire time and translated for us. He was so incredibly kind, calm and informative. Still super sad that we... More

Day 1 we did kayaking tour with time for snorkeling, This was a very fun outing, the kayaking was an adventure and the snorkeling near the Whale’s Tale was also excellent. The second morning we took surfing lessons. This was one of the highlights... More

Our resort recommended that we go here for surf lessons. As I am over 40 and have never surfed before, I was wary. We took a private lesson with Diego and he took us to calm waters where we had excellent instruction and a great time. One of his friends was on the beach while we surfed and he was... More

Diego is so positive, warm, and friendly. My wife and I had a blast with him out on the water all day kayaking and surfing. He is an exceptional teacher and passionate about his community. We highly recommend a day having fun with Diego.
