We had a fantastic time at Safari surf! Our coach was Pio and he did a wonderful job! He is very thorough in his teachings and really cares about his students. I was able to stand up on the first day because of his teachings! Everyone we interacted with were so helpful. Olas verdes is where we stayed and the staff was amazing. Highly recommend Safari surf!

These guys are the best! Wonderful teachers and the Olas Verdes Hotel is gorgeous and intimate. Playa Guiones has great waves for beginners and the place is absolutely gorgeous! I really can’t stress how much fun we had! We started out as total beginners and after a week we were riding the waves in.

This is a review for Playa Venao, Panama. Tim & Trico get big thumbs up all around. Our accommodation exceeded our expectations - we had a beautiful, modern condo right on the beach. Trico & his team provided us with surf lessons every day for the week - they were excellent instructors: clear, patient and extremely knowledgable and a ton of fun - they all have a great attitude and are a lot of fun. The waves were great for beginner & intermediate surfers - 3-6 feet. The vibe around the beach was super chill with lots of great eating & drinking places. We went in April and the water & the air were a perfect temperature. Despite having pre-paid for this vacation before Covid, 2 years later Safari Surf School recognized our payment and executed things exactly where we left off. It was a wonderful experience, flawlessly executed by Safari Surf School.
