I can't say enough positive things about the week long Rica Surf trip I just returned from. Everything was great. From the surf lessons, to the hotel, to the towns of Hermosa and Jaco. Not being the world's best surfer, I went in with a bit of apprehension, but Nancy and Evie are great instructors that cheer on both your good waves and your gnarly wipeouts equally. The thing that struck me as the most worthwhile however, was having two tour guides showing you not only the best waves, but the best local restaurants, bars, shops, etc.. every day. I certainly got a great feel for Costa Rica that I know I would not have gotten without them. On a scale of 1-10, I rate this trip right around a 43. HIGHLY recommended!!
