I have not been much of a water sports type of person but with Dante and his staff, I have felt right at home! It was a great experience learning how to surf! Never did I think I would see the day when someone has me on a surfboard riding a few waves! The staff is so friendly and patient... More

I came with a group for a last adventure on a study abroad trip. I loved the surfing lessons so much!! The staff were so welcoming! I felt great about the skills I learned. Very safe and very rewarding. I also loved that we felt like more than profit to them. They all really wanted us to have a great... More

This was an amazing experience. My instructor was Tony and he was such a cool guy. The instructors are so friendly and encouraging, and do not worry about being able to swim, because they cater to that as well. The instructors will not let go of the board so you glide in nice and easy until you are a surfing... More

We attended surf camp while on a REI family adventure trip. We had an amazing time. Dante's water sports provided one on one instruction and all the children and adults were able to successfully surf. It is a "must do" when in Manuel Antonio area.

Peter, Lily and I booked a surfing lesson with Dante's Watersports through our Wind Star cruise of Costa Rica & Panama. The instructors Alejandro and William were great - relaxed, playful and friendly. A couple practices on how to stand up on the board, and then it was out into the water for the next hour. We thoroughly enjoyed surfing... More

I came as a part of a larger study abroad group but the staff still made sure that we felt comfortable, safe, and attended to on an individual basis. Don't come on the very first day of your trip-- you will be sore! But it's so much fun and so worth it.

This was a really fun experience and I learned that surfing is way more fun than you'd expect. The instructors were very kind and they helped show me the right way. It was so much fun and I would totally do it again.

Dante and his crew are definitely the ones to go with when talking about surfing lessons! They are great! They really make sure you understand and stay with you the entire time!! It was a wonderful experience even for someone who was not so great at surfing - they were very patient, kind and funny! Use them for surfing!!!! :)

Dante's Watersports provided an excellent experience for the whole family. Our 12 year old was a first time surfer- the instructor promised she would be up on a board in five minutes - and he delivered! When it was time for a break, the staff had water and fresh pineapple for surfers and visitors. They even helped us locate fresh... More
