Iguana Surf Shop is awesome. My wife and I celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary by going surfing. The staff was friendly and energetic. We are coming back next year and plan on taking more lessons.

“Great Time!”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Totally enjoyed learning to surf. We're both in our 50's, so if we can, you can. Larry & I loved it. Many thanks to Iguana & the great photographer. Shots are already on FB:)

“Good time had by all”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

As a couple of 50+ first time surfers, we were a bit anxious to hit the waves. But we figured we may never pass this way again. Glad we did We had a small group of six with two instructors. They were helpful all along the way. Waves were modest, thank goodness. After a bit of trial and much error, were able to claim we actually were surfing. An exhausting and exhilarating day. Got great photos as well. We found the staff helpful and eager to help make it a great experience. We especially enjoyed watching families with younger children have a great experience.

“Pura Vida!”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We were directed to this specific surf shop by our hotel (Allegro Papagayo, 1.5hrs from Tamarindo), they made the reservation for the surf lesson (45US$) for us in advance. We arrived a few minutes late but our instructor, Manrique (great guy and talented surfer), was there and waiting for us. We than went on the beach fort the lesson which was perfect : effective, "short and sweet" with clear explanations. When it was time to get into the water our instructor went with us and watched the waves for us and was making sure that we would be riding the best ones. He stayed with us the whole time and was helping with the "paddle/stand up" timing and with our position on our board. It was wonderful. In fact we went back 2 days after with 2 extra beginners. They took as well the lesson and loved it. Since we previously had taken the lesson we only rented the boards and had a 50% discount for the day. It's the best place to go in Tamarindo! Thank you guys!
Julien and Priscilla.
