In early planning for my first surfing experience, I researched a number of surf camps along the Costa Rican Pacific coast for a friend and myself. We settled on Lucero Surf Retreats given the location of a more scenic/natural environment in Santa Teresa, previous positive reviews of Lucero, the "vibe" from their website, and most importantly the ease in working...

Marieke and Jared with Lucero Surf Retreats is 100% the way to go if you are looking to visit Playa Santa Teresa, especially to improve your surf skills. They have been part of the local community for 10+ years and are well connected, so they partner with the best in town for a variety of activity and meal options. Marieke...

I was so incredibly wrong that this trip was going to be OK. This is the first time I have been to Costa Rica as well as my 6 other friends first time. We went for my friend's 30th birthday in which he planned the whole thing. Marieke was very patient with us when only about half of us actually...

My family of 6 chose to go to Costa Rica to have an active vacation and learn to surf. We were not disappointed. Marieke and Jared are super helpful and my kids absolutely LOVED it. We had so much fun, we extended our vacation 6 days. Travel out to St. Teresa is challending so I highly recommend flying from San...

Marieke and Jared made our trip incredibly easy and convenient, while giving us the security of having local community experts in our corner. We knew which places to go, how to interact with our surroundings, and had the best possible vacation that we could have asked for. 100x THANK YOU to Marieke and Jared, our new friends that we'll most...

While I never imagined having someone who I never met before provide me with all the information, hold our hands through any and everything we wanted to do - that is exactly what we got from Lucero. Jared and Marieke ensured that my friends and I had a trip that we would never forget. If you want to truly have...

Jared was an amazing surf coach. Super...

We have just recently come back from our 10 days sisters holiday trip to Costa Rica with Lucero Surf Retreats. We've never been to Costa Rica before and just wanted to go somewhere to relax, enjoy the good weather and improve our surfing and yoga. Lucero retreats definitely did not disappoint.
