Alejandro was our instructor to the Tamarindo beach, as soon as he heard about our interest in taking our first surfing lesson he made that happened the next day by offering us the best time to do the class. He took the time to explain us everything before we went in the water (from safety to tips to have the most enjoyable first experience). We were able to get up after not even 3 tries!!! and enjoyed so much our class that we wanted to continue surfing after our class by ourselves :-). We highly recommend this surfing school and thanks again to Alejandro for making our first try so memorable!

My boyfriend and I spent 4 days in Nosara at Olas Verdes and took two surf lessons with Safari Surf. The entire staff was super friendly! Our instructor both days was Kevin. He was fun and a good teacher. We both were able to get up after only a few tries. We especially loved our lessons because we picked late afternoon, and surfed as the sun was setting...such a cool experience and highly recommend it! We hope to make it back again and bring friends/family next time! Pura Vida!

From the initial planning with Tim to the selection of activities with Marsi to the on site experience with Jeffrey, everyone at Safari Surf was committed to making sure we had a great experience. The instructors were fantastic and friendly--my kids all improved dramatically, as did I.

Tons of great restaurants around and spectacular surfing. A great vacation adventure!

Our recent family vacation to Nosara was quite likely our best vacation ever. Kudos to Safari Surf School for helping to make it a special trip. Everything about it was fantastic: the surf, the people, the food, the excursions, the hotel, etc.
Our kids (all of whom surf) had the surf sessions of their lives while there and credit instructors Kevin, Luis, and Erick for insights and putting them in the right position to catch long waves. All the instructors were helpful and had great attitudes.

Jeffrey and Jasmine took great care of us the entire time and made us feel as if we were their only clients this week (which was a very hectic week). We hated to leave but will definitely be back.

I can't say enough good things about the perfect week we had at Safari Surf and at Las Olas Verdes Hotel (organized by Safari Surf) in Nosara last week. The accommodations were simple but wonderful and spacious. Amazing food. The surf school was incredible. Neither I (47) or my kids (14 and 10) had surfed and we were all up -- the kids vowed they'd never do it and within minutes the guys had them up there shredding the waves. We horseback rode at sunset; we went to the animal refuge that SS supports; we zip lined; we went out when we wanted to; we stayed in when we didn't; we did yoga; my mom (80) and I had multiple massages; all seamlessly organized by SS with perfect precision, flexibility, and no pretension. We just had the best time! We made new friends and we will be back as soon as possible. I can see it being a regular place for us to enjoy for years to come. Pura Vida for sure.
