    Carlos was super friendly and easy to learn from. He was very clear on how to be successful when surfing and gave us simple steps to achieve our goals. He always lends a helping hand or gives tips when needed. We took a lesson with 4 teens at once, yet none of them felt as if they were lacking instruction. We really enjoyed our first lesson and continued to book with Carlos two more times. When taking lessons like this you often expect a copy paste lesson that would be used on all students, but not with Carlos. Carlos is a very down to earth and friendly guy that really wants to help you learn. This lesson was very cost friendly, and included a variety of boards. If you’re looking to surf in Tamarindo, book with Carlos.

    After training through the initial session with Matus, I immediately proceeded to book 6 more sessions for the remainder of my vacation at Conchal Reserva.

    Matus is a great pro, who has a keen eye and improves your game one correction at a time. He adjusts to your style, patiently answered any questions, gave great tips and exercises to work on at home. My 20-year old daughter really enjoyed training with him as well.

    If you are interested in tennis, I cannot recommend Matus highly enough. The level of coaching he provides costs at least double here in Canada.

    Pablo is an incredible healer and yoga teacher. He provides a treatment that combines aromatherapy and acupressure. Ask about it! I can't say how, but it was transformative for me. If you're looking to reset and explore new ways of healing, he’s great person to work with.

    Adilia’s Surf Bikini Retreat is an excellent experience! The women she has assisting her and teaching are gems! I traveled solo and never felt alone. As soon as I set foot out of the airport and saw the surf bikini sign the driver knew me. The ride in is beautiful and bumpy at parts. I came during the rainy season. The rain was beautiful, then always passed. Once you’re at Adilia’s you are made to feel right at home greeted with the world’s most delicious margarita. The women I joined at the retreat were a special bunch and learning to surf while experiencing Costa Rica with them was unforgettable. We left missing our Surf Bikini routine. I would recommend coming with a friend at your experience level if possible. Coming alone was still fine for me. I can’t say enough about the surf instructors (including Adilia), the chefs, yoga instructor, the wonderful Lucie! I miss everyone and I am relieved to be able to still connect with the ladies. Don’t hesitate!

    I'm a pretty decent surfer, but I wasn't able to get out on a board for a while due to not being able to travel for some time. I decided id take a lesson with the Tamarindo Surf House because I needed a refresher and for the price- it was just right. I got an early morning "lesson" because the tide was high then and those are the best waves. Got a great board to ride and an awesome instructor. Since surfing is one of my favorite sports/hobbies it really wasn't hard for me to pick it back up again and the instructor basically just got paid to stand in the water and hangout while I shredded.

    For the price you get great lessons, a lot I already knew, but really great guys who go over everything with you and make sure you're learning and doing it the right way. You also get photos of you surfing which I thought was super cool because who wouldn't want professional pics of them surfing.

    Great vibes and great instructors and they have the CUTEST puppy EVER. Highly recommend them, I actually don't think id even try out anywhere else because I loved the experience so so much. PURA VIDA

    We had such a great time on our SUP river adventure with Kevin & Joanne. The river was beautiful and the pictures they took and sent to us were a surprise added bonus! Kevin knew so much about the river and the Costa Rican wildlife. Super well organized and a wonderful memory for our family. Highly recommend!!!

    Learning how to surf with Avellanas Soul Surf School has been one of the best experiences of my live and that has been largely thanks to Julio. His expertise and training helped me to understand the basics of surf (as I was a beginner) and left me hunger of learning more about this life style.
    Every lesson was a new challenge and a new chance to improve but he also made sure that we had a lot of fun!!
    I can’t wait to go back!

    We had the GREATEST surf experience with Tuanis Adventures! Marco was completely amazing as a surf instructor and was very accommodating for us to conveniently meet him. Several of us tried surfing for the first (or so) time and had a blast! Marco was incredibly patient and filled with good vibes. Our two teenage boys went back to surf with him on several more occasions and he was beyond great with them and the surf lifestyle they would love to have everyday. He was always willing to make some availability, even at the last minute, and the boys thought he was fantastic. Marco was an essential part of our wonderful vacation and I cannot recommend him enough.

    My wife and I took a private lesson with Marco. He was super professional. Since it was only our second time surfing Marco made sure that we learned the basics first. He explained all the safety rules, surfing techniques and spent enough time practicing basic moves with us before going out to surf. While surfing he was making sure that we felt comfortable and confident all the time. Trust me with his help you gonna catch waves right away)) we had a great time surfing, watching sunset (which was amazing!!!!). Done a lot of progress, thanks to Marco! Definitely recommend Buena Vibra Surf School to everyone: people who surfed before and total amateurs))
    Pura Vida!

    Romina and Popsi are just the greatest! The beach and the waves in Playa Grande are beautiful and Popsi is really fun, cool but also really professional surfteacher. We could learn a lot thanks to him and were able to catch many waves. He can really give you great advices no matter if you're a beginner or if you paddle your own waves.
    Between surflessons you can do yoga classes with Romina, she's great! It gives you the perfect balance combined with all the surfing.
    Romina and Popsi also know a lot of other activities around and were also really helpful with booking certain trips/tours. They're the nicest people! We already went there twice and we'll go back there for sure!
