Gustavo is a great spanish teacher - i can't wish a better one! He has well studied skills and knows the perfect way to help novice (and advanced level also)! I startet with 4 lessions (two hours per lession) and i liked it so much, that i continued for a second week. For me, as a total beginner, it was... More

If you are thinking in going to Costa Rica to enjoy surfing, this is the place. From the begining Gustavo was there all the time trying to do our trip special. He showed us all the area and he was taking care of us. We were surfing at Playa Hermosa. This beach break is the best if you are begginer... More

I took 3 weeks of Spanish lessons with Perfect Sunset School. The first week of lessons was with Gustavo and the last 2 weeks were with Laura. Both have different teaching styles which I did enjoy. Having taken lessons previously with other schools, prior to this trip, Gustavo took the time to review what I had learnt in the past... More

My husband and I stayed 4 weeks (from 7 June 2014) with Gustavo at The Perfect Sunset School. I took Spanish lessions and we both had surfing lessions. The teachers (Vicky in Spanish class, Fernando and Gustavo giving surf classes) were really great. The Spanish classes had very few students (two or three) and we learned a lot. We were... More

I highly recommend taking a couple hours out of your day to work on your spanish at this school. Gustavo is a very patient teacher and was able to quickly assess my level and work on the most important concepts for me at the time. If you love Costa Rica, take some time to learn the language. You will make... More

I would, without hesitation and with full confidence, highly recommend Gustavo as a private Spanish instructor! I encourage anyone travelling here for more than a few days to invest the time (and money) in learning the local language - not only does it stimulate the intellect but it enhances all aspects of travelling to a beautiful, culturally rich and friendly...

Choosing Perfect Sunset School was really one of the best travel choices I have ever made. I knew I was looking forward to an opportunity to improve my surfing and Spanish while relaxing in a special part of Costa Rica, but the warm welcome and personalized teaching at the school was above and beyond anything I had expected.
