I don’t know if words really capture our experience at Perfect Sunset School – we had such an amazing time in the 16 nights we stayed in May of 2015. We felt at home! Gustavo was incredibly welcoming and went above and beyond (and then some) to ensure we had everything we needed to be comfortable while in Playa Hermosa.... More

Gustavo is a great spanish teacher - i can't wish a better one! He has well studied skills and knows the perfect way to help novice (and advanced level also)! I startet with 4 lessions (two hours per lession) and i liked it so much, that i continued for a second week. For me, as a total beginner, it was... More

If you are thinking in going to Costa Rica to enjoy surfing, this is the place. From the begining Gustavo was there all the time trying to do our trip special. He showed us all the area and he was taking care of us. We were surfing at Playa Hermosa. This beach break is the best if you are begginer... More

I took 3 weeks of Spanish lessons with Perfect Sunset School. The first week of lessons was with Gustavo and the last 2 weeks were with Laura. Both have different teaching styles which I did enjoy. Having taken lessons previously with other schools, prior to this trip, Gustavo took the time to review what I had learnt in the past... More

My husband and I stayed 4 weeks (from 7 June 2014) with Gustavo at The Perfect Sunset School. I took Spanish lessions and we both had surfing lessions. The teachers (Vicky in Spanish class, Fernando and Gustavo giving surf classes) were really great. The Spanish classes had very few students (two or three) and we learned a lot. We were... More

I highly recommend taking a couple hours out of your day to work on your spanish at this school. Gustavo is a very patient teacher and was able to quickly assess my level and work on the most important concepts for me at the time. If you love Costa Rica, take some time to learn the language. You will make... More

I would, without hesitation and with full confidence, highly recommend Gustavo as a private Spanish instructor! I encourage anyone travelling here for more than a few days to invest the time (and money) in learning the local language - not only does it stimulate the intellect but it enhances all aspects of travelling to a beautiful, culturally rich and friendly...

We can only recommend the perfectsunschool as it is a very serious school with great teachers. Our two sons 11 and 13 took a four weeks course with Gustavo and had great pleasure in learning a complete new language. Lessons were well prepared interesting and very lively. They had fun and acquired a good spanish level at the end of... More
