We've been using Cacho and his staff for surf board rentals, surf lessons, stand-up paddleboarding for years. They've always been professional, friendly, and reliable. They've been helpful with recommendations in other areas - they made contacts for us with the ATV tour, real estate, etc. Great team.

Was just in Nosara for a week and tried twice to set up a paddle-surf lesson with Cacho (he's the only one who offers the lesson) and both times he just didn't show up. Don't waste your time with these clowns.

Cacho's is a great place to rent a surf board and right at the corner where just a few yards away is the beach! Prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly.

Rented a surfboard from them and it was the best deal that I found in the area - $20/day or $100 for 7 days AND I could swap out boards any time that I wanted. Like most of the other rentals, they only have NSP boards, but they do the trick.

My wife and I both took surf lessons from Steve. He did an amazing job. He was friendly, polite and fun to learn from. His patience and encouragement kept us going.

Our first catch was a 15 pound Rooster Fish - my first ever - which we subsequently released. That was followed by a 10 pound Black Tuna and a couple of Red Snapper, one of which made for an outstanding dinner. Along the way I said hello to a huge Ridley Turtle and three light brown rays swimming by me... More

We had an incredible 3 hour trip Kayaking down Nosara River with Cacho himself. The wildlife was beautiful as was the scenery. Cacho had a great knowledge and made us incredibly welcome. After about 45 minutes along the mangroves we got to a deserted beach of black sands. It was deserted! We had fresh pineapple and a fantastic swim before... More

This shop is walking distance to the beach and will store your surfboard if you rented from them. They have a nice selection of surfboards to rent and they are in good shape. The staff is really friendly and helpful. You have 24 hour access to your rental board and they provide wax. You can shower off after surfing. They... More

After a mediocre lesson with another surf school in town, I set up my next lesson with 'Steven' at Cachos. Steven was friendly and knowledgeable from the get-go and even came in on his day off to conduct the lesson. Although young, he was very mature, polite and patient and was really able to elevate my surfing to the next... More

We were on a yoga retreat and got recommended by a friend to check them out and it was great! Cacho picked us up at Blue Spirit and including transportation the price wasn't bad at all. We took the surfing lesson and his instructions were really helpful so a bunch of us were able to get on and stay for... More
