Mauricio is the best. Not only was he a great teacher, but he was a great friend. I did a surf and yoga package at Montezuma Yoga for one week. We would take a 30 min walk along the beaches of Montezuma to get to Playa Grande to surf each day. He was open to surfing whenever it fit into... More

Mauricio is a great instructor and he taught me a lot during the one week of surfing classes I took with him. I would highly recommend his classes. He's very professional, friendly, patient and kind. Learning to surf in Montezuma was a great experience in a beautiful setting (having the beach almost for yourself).

I booked the Yoga and Surf package with a friend through Montezuma Yoga and had Mauricio teach us for the 5 days. I was anticipating that yoga would be the main part of my trip, but it turned out surfing was, which was such an incredible experience. It's a 45 min hike to the surf beach across beaches and through... More

Mauricio, the owner and instructor at High Tide Surf School, is a local that has been in the business for a long time. He has access to one of the biggest and most secluded beaches around Montezuma that I would never have found otherwise. He is an experienced instructor with impeccable ethic who prioritizes his clients' safety and well-being (he... More

I visited Montezuma Yoga in December 2016 and opted for the yoga and surf package. The instructor was Mauricio from High Tide Surf School. Mauricio was nothing short of amazing. He was patient and a wonderful person. Surfing with Mauricio was one of the highlights of my visit to Montezuma. Thank you Mauricio!

My entire trip to Montezuma was pretty great, but learning to surf under the guidance of Mauricio was by far the highlight of my time in Costa Rica. I had unsuccessfully attempted surfing during a previous trip to Costa Rica but decided to have one last go of it before completely giving up. The surf gods must have known that... More
