I was married in Costa Rica in May 2012. We had ~75 guests staying in the Playas Del Coco / Playas De Hermosa area north of Tamarindo for a few days. As part of our wedding festivities, we planned a morning Paddle Board via Star Paddle for any guests that wanted to participate. Star executed our plan flawlessly - the equipment, service, and planning was superb. They picked us up via new mid-size vans and buses, put us in on a very calm, sandy beach, and guided us on a nice, scenic paddle/journey to satisfy a wide range of skill levels of our family and friends. The sea passage took us right back to the beach where most of our guests were staying. Diego, the guide, speaks perfect English, and is super friendly and knowledgeable. He chose the right size boards for different sized/skilled folks and allocated his time more so towards those who needed it. I am not an easy critic, but highly recommend this small outfit for any paddle-boarding adventures.
