I had the best time at the SOTW. I did the Surf/Spanish/Yoga and even though it was a lot, it was amazing. I even did surf Intense for a week, becouse the surfing there was great. The Instructors were all so friendly and became friends over the weeks. The Rooms were cleaned once a week and everything was always very clean and tidy. I learned a lot of Spanish in the weeks i was there and was able to use it. Even though it was Corona Time, everything was open and safe.
Amazing place to surf and relax with great people! I stayed here for my 3rd time with my friend. There was never a time where I didn't feel like I wasn't staying at a second home. The staff are so friendly and the instructors are professionals and really great educators, you will see a spike in progress even after a few days of surfing. The school is also close to amazing restaurants and walking distance to the beach. Highly recommend.
I ended up at SOTW through a recommendation from a fellow traveler and I'm super grateful for that advice, it was a fantastic experience. I arrived there not knowing how long I would stay but made a really easy decision to spend a full month. Everyone I met from the staff to the other guests were always welcoming and willing to give advice about the area. The school itself is a beautiful property with a great relaxing vibe, the rooms were some of the nicest I've stayed in anywhere, and there's a big open kitchen with everything needed for meal prep. I was only taking the Spanish class and Laura the instructor is a very professional and caring teacher who adjusts to every level of ability and makes sure time is well spent. If you're planning on visiting the Jaco area I highly recommend SOTW. It is one of the coolest places to spend time. Especially if you're looking for quality classes in surf, Spanish, yoga etc. this should be your #1 CHOICE.…
We had an excellent time at School of the World. The room we had was beautiful, and provided everything you could possibly need or expect. This is probably the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. All of the staff and and instructors were so friendly, professional, and excellent at what they do. Covid-19 precautions were in place and made me feel safe during my stay. We took surfing classes, mainly as a way to exercise and have some fun on our trip. We were blown away at how much we were able to learn in just a week! The instructors were amazing.
We stayed a whole week, and left wishing for more! The school itself is relaxing, beautiful, and CLEAN. The instructors are so knowledgeable and friendly. The management and staff were very helpful. Highly recommend filling your schedule with classes (specifically surf, yoga, Spanish) and staying on the property. (Room #10 was the best!)
