It was the most fun, intense and amazing surfing experience I could imagine! thank you Mike and all your magic pura vida team for making us stay on board, paddle, feel the wave and enjoy so many beautiful moments!
i have never had so much progress and joy in starting a completely new sport activity as I had with Tortuga Surfing Camp. You have a bunch of different instructors, everyone has his own style and plenty of wise tips and what matters - every time you go to the water you have your personal instructor. Different people said that its so hard to learn surfing so I hoped that in best case scenario I would catch the wave after a few days of trying but already at the first lesson I did it! The guys explain everything so well, step by step, paying attention to the smallest details, they film the lessons with GoPro camera so that you can see your mistakes and do much better the next time.
With my two extreme loving friends we went for Tortuge surfing camp package which means that in addition to surfing you have lots of other activities: paddle boarding, canopy tour, hiking, sightseeing. Each of the places and experiences was awesome, beautiful and surprising - we went paddle boarding to the island, walked to a massive waterfall, said hi to local crocodiles) All this allowed us to discover different sides of Costa Rica, get as close to the nature as possible, and really feel a pura vida lifestyle.
Million thanks to Mike and each member of his Tortuga team! You, guys, are amazing and you made our vacation unforgettable! the service, attitude, planning, location, food - everything was just perfect and it felt just like staying at friends and being a member of a big surfing family. Doggy, Alonso, Victor, Jason, Milo, Celine - each of you filled our stay with lots of joy, laugh and drive! We definitely want to come back! pura vida :)
