I had a wonderful experience top to bottom! JLuis was the man out on the sea, and Irene was such a joy to be around back at the hotel! They both go above and beyond to take incredible care of their guests! Recommend highly! Pura vida!

I've been to many surf camps and this one is by far the best. The instructors here go above and beyond and the staff is super friendly and helpful. I would describe my surfing as intermediate. They are flexible with their students. You are welcomed to join whichever group if you feel you need a refresher, and you can even... More

What wonderful people, what a wonderful setting, and what a memorable vacation. I took my 13 year old daughter there for spring break and we had a blast. Their surf school is excellent and it is staffed by extremely capable instructors who are all very personable. A big shout out to Rafa who made every day in the surf the... More

I stayed here with a surfing buddy February 7-15 and we did the advanced surfer program. It was an excellent choice for a number of reasons. First, we had a great guide, David Torres, who was always cheerful and helped us pick the best waves. Second, the boat drivers (especially Pru Pru) were very professional and efficiently got us to...

I just went for an hour lesson. Andres was my instructor and he was patient and focused on safety. Based on his instruction I got up my 2nd try. The waves were the best he had seen all week = big for me the beginner. He helped me learn how to respond to a wave that was going to break... More

There is a reason Witches Rock gets such great reviews! Mainly because they are all true! I just spent a great week as a beginner, and truly loved the week. You will read many reviews about meeting new friends and feeling like part of a family right away. This is so true! Within the first day everyone was chatting, mingling... More

My husband and I have just finished a week-long stay at WRSC. We had an amazing time! The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The AC worked well and there is a fan. The showers are large and the hot water works well. There are plenty of plugs to charge various devices. There was an in-room safe. We had a courtyard... More

My son and I just returned from 9 days with Witches Rock Surf Camp. We were in the intermediate group and our main instructor was Flash and sometimes Isaac. They were both great instructors in very different ways. Both very considerate with picking surf spots that suited the group and with offering really detailed instruction or leaving you alone if...

We did a father/daughter trip the week of 1/31/15 to 2/7/15. It's fun to see some of the other friends/guests and their reviews from that week. There was a really good feeling of family that week and that was a key benefit of the week. WRSC makes a surf experience in a foreign land EASY. That's the best way I... More
