I came to CRSI after hearing that Tamarindo was a great place for surfing and looking for a place to learn spanish and surf. It turned out to be the perfect spot. The lodging is perfect, you stay in apartments that provide everything you need. There are kitchenette's in each apartment which allow for doing your own cooking if you prefer rather than eating every meal out with can be expensive in Tamarindo. They also have living areas so we ended up mainly staying in the apartments in the evenings having friends come hang out, making food and being able to watch TV or use the internet there. Everything is very clean, safe, and comfortable. It's a much more fun way to stay somewhere and meet other people while traveling that enjoy the same things. The surfing program was great, being a beginner it was a great place for learning but there were definitely enough waves for advanced surfers, there were many really good surfers at the school. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a surfing or spanish vacation!
