My husband and I recently went to Costa Rica with another couple. When we arrived in Dominical, we briefly stopped at a beach to take in the view and ended up meeting some surfers. Within a few minutes, they were recommending lessons with Dylan at Sunset Surf. We later got a room at the hotel Villas Alturas, and sure enough, the owners Dave and Cindy recommended Dylan, as well. I was a little nervous about surfing, since I'm not a terrific swimmer, but I felt totally safe with Dylan and Josue. They stay at your side and give pointers the whole time. It was very hands-on, and they were super patient and encouraging. A couple of us ended up taking a second lesson the next day, and my husband can't believe he didn't learn to surf earlier in his life. I'd rank the experience as one of my top in Costa Rica, thanks to Sunset Surf!
