Just got back from a week in Nosara, which is about 51 weeks too short for anyone who is intending on visiting. The shop was closed for off-season, and the wi-fi and phone were out at the house we rented due to the recent quake. Regardless, Marq (the manager) still managed to find us, open up the shop, and get... More

Steve and the crew at Coconut Harry's are incredible. I was totally overwhelmed trying to figure out where to go for my one week vacation. There are just too many choices and I was about to give up when a friend of mine suggested Nosara. I started digging around and found Coconut Harry's. Steve was amazing and created a totally...

I didn't use the surf school, but I did go into the surf shop looking for some waterproof ear plugs because I had forgotten mine. They wanted $21 U.S. for a pair of Mack's. I went to the farmacia and found the same ear plugs for $6 U.S. Everything appeared to be way overpriced in this surf shop. I wouldn't... More

Hola Mark, After reading your review I researched the ear plugs and you are correct. We did have some priced at $21 and that is way too high. It was a pricing error on our part and I apologize for the mistake. I would be more than happy to refund you the difference. I can send you a check or... More

Excellent !!!! for beginners - Christian was our guru and the the crew, Mark Jordan and company add to the ease of renting boards and giving surf info. We all got up on the boards after about 1 hour, a 13 year and the 2 parental units. Will be back for our next beach trip - since we are hooked.
