Safari surf school is the perfect place to learn to surf. The soft, sandy bottom makes learning to surf a little less intimidating, and the instructors make you feel right at home. I loved staying at Casa Toucan and surfing with Safari during the day. The Casa Toucan Restaurant/bar is awesome (open air and delicious with fresh daily specials) and the hotel has everything you need in a convenient location. I loved the staff, including wait staff and chefs who were able to accommodate my special requests. I was fortunate to meet owners: Tim and Marci and their family, as well as Tyler, and his wife and children. The entire experience left me feeling like one of the family. I know I'm not alone, as there were a number of repeat guests who were welcomed back as if they were family. What a wonderful place to vacation and learn a sport at the same time!!! Cheers to Safari Surf!!!
