    Their website will have all of that info. They do offer boards and surfing classes. Search Surfing Turtle Lodge on google. It should come right up. I can't post the link due to Trip Advisor Restrictions.

    Hi, the prices are moderate. A meal can cost you between $3 to $10. And the drinks are not expensive either. They serve cocktails too.
