Mauricio is the man to know in Jaco. The man is a staple to the community and is well respected through out the Jaco and Hermosa area. Has vast wealth in the friend department. His love for the beach is evident when he is on the sand. Mauricio more than anything helped me to get comfortable paddling and getting to... More

Maurico is a great instructor, he takes the time to show you, he also watches you closely to tell you what you are doing wrong and explains how to do it right. I would recommend to anyone that goes to Jaco beach to surf for the first time to book him a few times.

Mauricio is the best surf instructor one could wish for. He really cares for the lessons he gives, helps you with everything, suggests the best times, the most appropriate boards and gives you a push when needed, while leaving space for individual learning. I have quite some experience in other extreme sports, but after two lessons with other instructors I... More

Mauricio was the best surf instructor! Our first trip to Costa Rica and our three kids caught so many waves with his instruction. He was positive, helpful and just a really nice guy. We are going back and will definitely surf with Jaco Surf Club again! The Lukes Family Colorado

With 3 different levels of surfing in my family, he has... More

Our family of four took a two hour group lesson and loved it! Mauricio and his crew were extremely attentive and made sure that everyone surfed to the best of their ability. Highly recommended for families!

I took a 1 hour lesson with Mauricio on Nov. 24th and it was awesome. This was the second time I had ever surfed and the first time was 4 years ago so for all practical purposes I knew nothing. Add to this that I'm no spring chicken (52 years old) and you can see Mauricio didn't have a whole... More
