“Great lesson!”

Fernando was our instructor and for first time surfers we had a blast! He was very instructive and encouraging. We really appreciated the way he wanted us to enjoy surfing as much as he did.

“Great time can't wait to go back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

Pack light. You'll only need a few quick trying clothing items. No long pants. Bring flip flops and a camera. Lots of sun screen.

DelMar was welcoming, helpful and flexible. Surf lessons were matched to our skill level and just challenging enough. We felt safe. Very friendly staff all around. Highly recommend this camp!

“This was one of the best vacations I have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

My daughter and I went to the Del Mar Nosara location, we had such a great time. Our surf lessons and instructors (Jessie, Diego, Sonia) were excellent. My daughter is a surfer and I am a beginner and they definately catered to our abilities. Our accomidations were wonderful, our host Adriana made us feel like we were visiting friends, and the food at the local restaurants were awesome. We went zip lining at Miss Sky, which was so much fun, and our guides were great. Our SUP tour on the Nosara River was wonderful and our guide Felipe was so informative about the local plant and animal life. The massage at the end of our trip was the icing on the cake. My daughter took Angie's Pilates class, and loved it. I can't wait to go back again in the near future

“Awesome surf trip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

Del Mar made sure I had an outstanding Surf trip! Adrianna took good care of us. The surf instructors were great.

Playa Guiones is a really fabulous place for a surf trip - particularly for beginner to intermediate surfers. The waves were big and consistent, but soft.

The area is surprisingly family friendly. I'll definitely be back.
