Outstanding surf instructors. Maya and Tavo are incredibly nice people who welcome you openly, do a great job teaching, and go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your time in Santa Teresa. Both are just really positive people who make it really hard to get frustrated... and learning to surf can be frustrating. Highly recommend them! Maya even went out of her way to set up a horseback riding trip for my wife and daughters, and then took me to an amazing empty point break on the other side of the peninsula where the waves were particularly well suited for riding an SUP... which is what I really enjoy. And she did all this AFTER my kids gave both she and Tavo a Stomach bug for Christmas. (Seriously Maya, stop hugging people. They’re germy!) Can’t recommend them enough.

Was lucky enough to connect with Tavo and spend 3 days surfing with him as my instructor. With his help my skills definitely levelled up during that time! Spending his whole life in that area of Costa Rica and surfing since he was a kid, you couldn’t ask for a better instructor. See you soon, amigo 🤙

Don't really know where to start...mother nature blessed us with a perfect day, Tavo was great, friendly, an awesome teacher and an amazing human being! Really made me feel at home away from home.
Left the session with joy tears in my eyes!
Looking forward to go back to Playa Hermosa.
Best waves of my (short) surfing life...PURA VIDA!
:)

I did a solo trip but I can’t wait to bring my kids and experience Maya’s perfectly curated sessions!! I did a sunset paddle board session that blew my mind away and had a blast learning how to surf. It was fun and peaceful and magical✨
Maya and her team take the beauty and majestic experience to another level....
Thank you!!

I've had the best surfsessions down in Santa Teresa with Tavo, he is the best surf teacher I have ever had and felt comfortable with him when we were paddeling out. He helped me to get my confidence back in the water and gave me the tips I needed and most important of all, we have had fun in the water! Tavo is very relaxed, knows what he is doing and is there to you give you all the help you need! Thanks again for the great time and wish you and your family all the best! Pura Vida, Jackie

We left early in the morning and set out on an adventure in Curu Nature Reserve. Once there, we got on our paddle boards and paddled to one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever laid eytes on. Pristine white sand and vibrant green palm trees, it was the true definition of tropical. We had an amazing vegan picnic lunch and Maya opened up a bunch of coconuts for us. We had th best time and I would have to say it was one of the most memorable days of my life.

Maya and Tavo are two ROCKSTARS! I had a super-time surfing with them. I very little experience surfing before but they were so warm and caring, they made me feel really secure both with the movement of the water and the surfboard.

With their positivity and on-point feedback I was quickly on the board and in the lineup, surfing my first waves.

These two champions are more than you'd wish for from a surf-instructor. They overdeliver on ALL aspects. I will continue surfing with them & improve - hands down!

My boyfriend and I were connected with Maya and Tavo through mutual friends and we’re so glad we got the opportunity to spend a half day with them while staying in Mal Pais. Maya was extremely communicative before we met up, and gave us options on where we wanted to surf based on our skill level. We met up with her and Tavo in the morning and drove to an amazing surf spot where they taught us about the break and etiquette before paddling out. We spent a couple hours in the water with them, catching some of the best waves of our lives so far. Afterwards, we went to a local cafe for lunch with them and learned more about Costa Rica and their experiences surfing around the world.

Both Maya and Tavo are beautiful humans and exceptional locals to surf with - I can’t say enough positive things about them and can’t wait to surf with them again!!

The hotel recommended Sundah Surfers and it was so worth it ! It was my first time ever surfing and Maya made me feel really confident very quickly ! She has such a positive energy ! My boyfriend and I decided to do a second lesson with her the day after because we had so much fun ! The cold coconut after the surf is certainly a must !
