We took a family vacation on a cruise ship and did stand up paddle boarding in Costa Maya. Everyone had a great time and some commented that they could do this all day. We also opted for the drone photos which the family really liked. It was a little strange getting there but it was not a problem. There are... More

One of the best experiences from our week long vacation in Costa Rica! It was so tranquil with the surrounding nature and yet a fun and adventurous way to be with the entire family with different athletic abilities.

They picked us up from our hotel in their boat and we had a fun boat ride around the peninsula- we even had a school of dolphins chase our boat for about 10 minutes! They took us to some... More

I have traveled to Costa Rica 2 other times for surfing. This was my best experience by far. I can't think of anything about the trip that could have been improved upon. Marco pays attention to every detail and insures that you will have a good experience. I traveled with a friend who did SUP and I rode a long-board.... More

I booked with Marco in April of 2015 and had an incredible time. I booked again in May 2016 for 5 days and the experience was even better.

My family traveled to Tamarindo three times and each time was better with the help of Marco and Lydia. If you want the access to the best waves ( and ceviche "Avellanas") in northern Costa Rica contact Marco. I have never experienced a better guide.

Travelled to Tamarindo Nov 2015 with a friend for our first SUP trip, we've both SUP'd 2-3 seasons and are intermediates who were up for a challenge. Over next five days Marco met us each morning at 5:45am and again in the afternoon, drove us out to Avellenas, and provided us with unbelievable waves, instruction, and photos. By the third... More
