It was my first time visiting Costa Rica and I had the time of my life. Marieke helped my friend every step of the way with our travel plans, making it so relaxing to just sit and enjoy their services when we arrived. It is A MUST to use them if you want to learn how to surf. Jared took... More

First off this trip was seamless because of Marieke and Jared. Marieke did all the heavy lifting booking our hotel, and activities (ziplining was amazing and is a must). She went out of her way to make sure my stay was nothing but amazing, and I can't wait to return and see both of them. Jared is the most amazing... More

This was my second trip to Costa Rica, my wife's first. It couldn't have been better. Marieke and Jared were involved from the very beginning and helped us with everything from lodging, surfing, yoga, where to eat, where to go on our own adventures, anything we needed They were amazing. We'll be back and can't wait to see them again!

We truly enjoyed every moment of this trip, Santa Teresa was a beautiful city and everyone was very friendly. Both of us are at different levels of surfing and Jared was... More

Marieke and Jared coordinated a family surf trip to Playa Santa Teresa for ten of us this Christmas. I've always wanted to take my kids surfing. This was our best Christmas ever! These guys managed to accommodate all of us from my 72 year old mother in law to my three year old niece...and everyone in between. We had lovely... More

Lucero Surf Retreats delivered what was unanimously considered the "best family vacation" we have ever had. Santa Teresa is a fantastic surf beach town, locals are incredibly friendly, our accommodations/villas were amazing, the outdoor activities numerous (zip line, ATV, SUP) and most important the surfing was the best/most consistent beach break wave we have ever enjoyed (my wife has been...

We had an amazing time in Santa Teresa Costa Rica! Truly memories that will last a lifetime. Jared and Marieke made it a wonderful experience. They organized zip line, yoga, paddle board, massages, and surf lessons. The guys at the zip line were so fun--we had a blast! The massage was also amazing. I felt so relaxed afterwards. The beach...

We came as a family of ten and rented 3 villas. They were well equipped, clean, contemporary, and comfortable. Marieke and Jared were so helpful and had planned our vacation to the minute. We all did things we never would have dreamed of and had such fun together and with them. Highly recommended!!! Everyone we met in Costa Rica was... More

Our family has been all skiing together for the last 20 years, which we enjoy since it allows everyone to be as active as they want to be...........this year my mom turned 72 and had enough with the cold so we decided to go warm but still wanted a vacation where we (and especially the kids) could be active so...

I put the title "Best Vacation Ever" in quotes, because that's what we are still saying about it today... 2 months after our visit. My wife and I were looking for a semi-active beach vacation and combining yoga and surfing in Santa Teresa ended up being more perfect than we could imagine! Everything was absolutely perfect - from the pre-planning... More
