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

Asking to get a refund since I got hit by a car, and the leader (grey, short hair, old) Screamed he would call the police.. I replied "just do that" and after a long discussion he gave me some of my deposit money and even charged... 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! Marq, Nelson, Jordy and Jose were all very professional and offered wonderful... More

We've rented boards here two years in a row. Great boards and good deal. They are honest and professional. Will rent there again.

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...

Our daughter took surf lessons for the first time - with instructors (Luigi and Jose). She was up on the board after the first day already and spent the next few lesson getting better. Luigi and Jose were great instructors, very friendly and made the experience fun! Marc (the manager) was very accommodating and organized. When I decided to take... More

True Story... I recently visited Nosara with my wife and two teenage daughters - we arrived in town on a Sunday afternoon and booked a surf lesson with Coconut Harry's for 8:30 Monday morning. We got off to a good start, picking up our boards and meeting Nelson a few minutes early then heading down to the beach right on... More
