... very welcoming, supportive and so much fun! it felt like a road trip with friends, while still being professional and making sure that we had the full two hours of class where we all got to work on our skills.
Misael is a great instructor and we both were able to catch waves on our own towards the end of the session.

Pablo was fantastic on the Canopy Tour and we enjoyed snorkeling with Randy & and the Cahuita walking tour guide knew just where to find all the animals - I wish I could remember his name!
The course was super fun, adventurous and the right amount of challenging, and the guides made us feel really safe while also making the experience fun!

Aaah the pristine beaches, warm water, views AND a small town filled with the necessary things to make a perfect trip.
The beautiful beach was a couple miles in length and the ocean was perfect for frolicking in 3ft waves.

For our next session we went to Punta Uva, which was such a beautiful beach and even though the waves were a bit bigger, I still felt totally comfortable with Hershel’s instruction.
He picked us up at our casita and gave us a couple options based on our experience paddling to make sure we had the best tour.

The BriBri are an indigenous tribe in the Talamanca region, and we had a wonderful time learning more about their culture and customs, including cacao & chocolate, handicrafts and medicinal plants.
My daughter and I did the “Chocolate, Medicinal Plants & Waterfall (Watsy)” tour with Tirza and it was amazing.
