Gabriela Carazo, at Harry's, could not have been more helpful & flexible in renting us a surf board & boogie board. We rented from their location nearest their beach. It was convenient, they watched our car & included shirts for free to protect us from sunburn. She even offered to let us use their shower when we were done.

I have been to Nosara surfing over the past few years. Every time, I have rented a board from Coconut Harry. The kid wanted to charge me $25 a day for the 10 or so days I was there. I tried to strike a deal with him at $20/day. He refused. I went elsewhere - just up the street(can't recall... More

Just read your review, Sorry for not offering you a better deal. We usually give nice discounts for long term rentals. At minimum we give you a free day for renting for a week. For 10 days we would have done $15 per day for sure. You mentioned you were talking to a kid. He was probably our guy that... More

I rented boards for myself and kids (12 & 15) for the week. They have a retail store at the center of Playa Guiones and satellite shed right at start of the the beach trail. If you turn in your board before 5, they will keep it for you and have it ready when you go out in the morning.... More

I signed up for Coconut Harry's surf and stay package. From the minute I stepped off the plane they were there to accommodate me! Each surf lesson focused on teaching me the basic skills while also providing me with extremely helpful tips in order to improve my surfing!

My wife and I took beginners lessons from Nelson on two days in February, 2014 and they were fantastic! Nelson is very patient both on the beach and also once we got into the water. Hats off to Nelson! Regarding the surfing, you'll find that Coconut Harry's is ideally located in the middle of Guiones beach, which has some of... More

I took 2 lessons with Luigi and I can only say that the level of instruction is outstanding! I had tried group lessons in Europe before and it was nothing compared to Coconut Harrys - the "groups" here are of max 3 persons, they don't mix kids with adults and every wave you take (or not) is seen and commented...
