Yes, it's as good as what all the other reviews say. Five-stars.
The week started with a prompt airport pickup with Juan-Carlos at the wheel. Very personable and accommodating during the ~ 3 hour ride down to the house in Kalon, where Nathalie greeted me...More
I was looking for an exceptional two week vacation in Costa Rica. I needed to chill, surf, and be surrounded by nature. Kalon Surf was exactly what I needed. It's in the middle of the jungle, and very close to the beach.

Hi! It poured almost every day I was there, and I still had the best vacation of my life. The good news is, surfing is an activity that can be done quite happily in the rain -- after all, you're already wet! And I loved sitting in the rocking chair on the porch outside my room, reading while the rain fell.
As for the comment from "k m," they're pretty obviously either working for or being paid by a competitor. The ride to the beach was one of my favorite parts of the day, getting to know my fellow guests and our coaches.
Oh: And the waves were perfectly predictable, as far as waves go. They're waves. I was the least-advanced surfer of the group while I was there, and the coaches took time out to stay with me and help me improve while the more advanced surfers paddled farther out and caught bigger waves, worked on turns, etc. Go to Kalon!

Feel free to email me personally if you have any Kalon questions or doubt my authenticity. On your mosquito question, we did not experience any mosquitos (other bugs, yes (it is a jungle after all), but no mosquitos. The resort is on top of a mountain with breezes almost all the time which could cut down on mosquito population.
