My girlfriend and I were recently staying in the Nosara area and I signed my her up for a group lesson. The employees at both locations were friendly and answered any questions. The class size was small and she received great instruction and had a great time. I would recommend coconut Harry's to anyone traveling or staying in the area!

Always glad to see the folks at Coconut Harry's. Gavi and Alfredo take great care of us and Nelson is still the best teacher on the beach. One of the best parts of coming to Guiones
