My first time surfing was amazing thanks to the wonderful instruction and patient care of our instructor, Manfred. Owner Alex greeted us and was so kind. Really sweet, smart people who know what they are doing. We are so happy we choose Choco’s and you will be too! Btw Samara is the ideal spot for a beginner. Great waves and beautiful spot.

If you want to surf with local pro, just go to Choco’s!!!! We rented a surf boards for a couple of days at the beach! The staff went above and beyond to provide tips of places to see, local surf advice (tide charts, best times to go) and were super responsive. Super easy and friendly and great!! We went surfing every morning it was a blast- small waves and a longboard was perfect for a beginners kook like us. Our kids took a Personal lessons from such knowledgeable and cool surfers was such a treat!! The kids learned so much, 100% recommend! Big thanks to Alex and Andrew and the whole crew! We will definitely back!!! Big thanks to all of you!!!!!

Excellent team, very well thought out method of teaching. Great equipment. Supportive and patient. We (2 parents mid 40’s, and 2 teenagers) took lessons on day one, and surfed everyday after for the duration of our trip. They are very well networked and willing to help with ideas of other adventures to do while in the area. By far the biggest bang for the buck in Costa Rica. Can’t wait to see them again!

I had the best experience at Choco’s! I had no idea how to surf but they made it easy and fun. I got up on my first try! They were great teachers and made my safety a top priority. It was such an amazing experience. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for surf lessons in Samara!

Awesome day learning to surf! We highly recommend Choco's surf school. Manfred taught myself, my husband and our two teenage children to surf. This was our first time and everyone got up on the board. Safety was a priority and he was very thorough in his instructions and helpful in the water. It was such a cool experience, my son's favorite out of our two weeks in Costa Rica! Thank you!!!
