I went on a ton of tours while I was in Costa Rica, and this was by far my favorite. Not only did we see Monkeys and all kinds of birds, but we also saw Crocodiles... It was also so amazing just to be out in the Mangroves. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Martin was also super helpful and taught us all about the wild life. I would not miss this tour.

Our instructor, Andre, was super helpful and taught us tips to help us get up. Both my husband and I were able to fully stand several times and ride some waves! Andre was also great at helping to hold and steady the board at first, but then gradually helped us independently catch a few on our own.
Christian, the friendly guy running the shop was great also!
Affordable and great service! (and the free lockers were great too, for storing our sandals and towels.)
Bring some extra cash if you want to buy a T-shirt!

Going on Vacation with my family I was not thinking that I would be able to join them with learning to surf, but after much begging they finally convinced me to take a lesson. There were several surf lessons offered in the town of Tamarnido, so we decided to go with the one we felt most comfortable with. Not only did all my kids get up on the surf board ages 5-17 I was able to join them. Takes Iguana Surf for making our family vacation more memorable.

A friend and I visited Costa Rica for the first time this year. Learning how to surf was an excursion we had planned from the beginning of our trip, and we knew a trip to Tamarindo was our destination. When we arrived in Tamarindo we realized there were plenty of surf schools to choose from, so we picked Iguana Surf cause it was one of the first surf schools we had seen. We were welcomed by 3 friendly staff members; Frank, Christian, and our soon to be instructor Andre. Frank hooked us up with a locker to put all of our things and shortly after Andre took us out for a 2 hour lesson. The lesson began with a thorough 20 minute beach exercise where we were shown the proper way to get up (no knees) and the safety and rules of the surf. Once in the water Andre helped us catch some waves and with determination and about 50 tries we both got up. If surfing is in your agenda while visiting CR I would recommend stopping by Iguana Surf and taking a lesson or two from one of these guys, they helped make our trip a memorable one. :)
