I booked a surf package with Coconut Harrys and everything was just perfect - from my first contact via email with Steve, the owner, until (and including) my ride back to San José. Steve took care of everything - from booking my hotel (which was Harbor Reef), setting up my surfing lessons, recommending restaurants and things to do and see.... More

Our three older kids, ages 10, 8 and 6, had never surfed before coming to Nosara. We went to Coconut Harry's at the suggestion of a local, and we were very happy with the results! Jose was truly exceptional in teaching the kids to surf. He spoke English, gave clear instructions, and was extremely attentive to our kids.They were on... More

Our family, all first time surfers, took a number of surf lessons from Coconut Harry's during our week in Nosara. Jose was a great instructor. Great staff and wonderful experience.

Booked a weeks vacation package through Coconut Harry's for my daughter and myself and had a great time. Coconut Steve looked after everything including picking us up at the airport, hotel, meals and activities, not to mention surfing. We were very well looked after and everything ran very smooth. Although we never really needed it, it was nice to have... More

We did the full package with Coconut Harrys, and were thrilled with every moment. They set up our hotel (Harmony hotel, it was brilliant), got us in the surf everyday (Nelson and Jose were phenomenal coaches!), and set up a sweet kayaking tour of Ostional. Steve and Marc managed everything and were a pleasure to work with! Can't wait to... More

Coconut Harry's is exactly what you picture when you think Costa Rican surf shop & school. Nestled in the jungle steps from the beach, the boards dry in the hot sun. Nelson, my instructor, was firm and fun. He didn't let up on coaching until I was comfortable riding my longboard in the surf. He was also funny and focused... More

We rented a SUP for my husband to surf while in Nosara. They were great about emailing me to find out availability and were super nice! The board we rented was an excelled Naish performance board that my husband was eager to try. Great selection.

I spent a week in Nosara and took 5 lessons with Jose. Everyone at Coconut Harry's was extremely friendly and helpful. I've stopped by to chat, asked for restaurant recommendations, etc. Jose was extremely enthusiastic, positive, and patient with beginners. He also reassured me when I was frustrated with myself and made sure I was always safe. Though I didn't... More

Can't say enough wonderful things for Luigi at Coconut Harry's. He and all the staff were absolutely wonderful. My 8 year old son Max had 5 surf lessons and thoroughly enjoyed them all. What a great opportunity for him to experience surfing at one of the best spots on the planet with a great instructor !!!! Thanks.
