“Great surf and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

After surfing for a couple of weeks at other places, I decided to stay for four days at Sunset Surf Dominical. I had a great time and I wish I could have stayed much longer. Dylan and his team are really committed to making sure you have a great time. Lessons are in small groups and the approach is very personal. Sunset Surf takes care of everything and you don't have to worry about a thing. Just catch the next wave at the beautiful beaches in the Dominical area.

“Great for beginners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

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!

“Super Rad Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

After taking a bit of beating trying to Surf in San Diego I decided it was time to actually learn how to surf. I did a ton of research and finally settled on Sunset Surf Dominical in Costa Rica and the 6 day surf camp. We couldn't have been happier with that decision. My girlfriend and I had surfed very little before but Dylan and Josue were both fantastic instructors who really knew how to help everyone in the group get to the next level. The progressive steps using different beaches with different types of waves each day are perfect for getting you up and riding waves in a short period of time. By the end of the trip we were able to catch and ride chest high sets. The town of Dominical was a cool little surf town that allowed easy access to the rain forest for other adventures which Dylan and Mari are happy to recommend and help setup. During our entire trip they treated us like friends as opposed to just another group of tourists in town on vacation. If you're looking for the active vacation its tough to beat a spot with surfing, cliff jumping, rain forest hiking, zip lining, sea kayaking and just about anything else you can think of. We'll definitely be back next year and be giving Dylan at Sunset Surf a call.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My girlfriend and I travelled to Costa Rica for a month this August. Our first stop was at Dominical for the standard surf package with Sunset Surf. Everything was amazing! Dylan was super friendly and a great teacher. The perfect way too start surfing. On top of that the photos taken were awesome and the trip to Nauyaca Waterfall was sensational. Big thank you to Dylan and the rest of the guys and we hope to go back!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

My boyfriend and I had never surfed before and we decided to brave the waves of Dominical, Costa Rica. We chose Sunset Surf because our hotel suggested them. Dylan was friendly, patient and very informative. He was a great teacher and a super cheerleader. We both got up a bunch of times and had a blast. He also had an umbrella to shade us for the beach portion of the lesson and snacks and water to replenish us. Overall great experience. Would have loved to do the camp if we had time.
