Surfing Lessons
The perfect option for anyone seeking a short but intense introduction into the world of surfing. After picking you up at your hotel, we bring you down to the beach to begin practicing some safety recommendations before hitting the waves. Our special teaching techniques will have you up in no time, and our patient and experienced instructors give you lots of tips along the way to help you find that perfect and balanced form on the board. Take a break to relax in our chairs under the shade of umbrellas, and refuel with fresh, juicy tropical fruit before you continue conquering the waves. When you’ve captured enough moments standing up and surfing from all kinds of angles, and your arms cannot take more paddling, we bring you back to your hotel. This is a fantastic experience that everyone should try, for sure!
What to Expect

All tours include round-trip transportation in a comfortable, new, double air conditioned 12-people-van (driven by the owner, Dante), from/to the guest’s hotel or private residence in Manuel Antonio or Quepos, chair and umbrellas at the beach, refreshments (water, coconut water, and fresh fruit), surf board, rash guard, and an experienced and safe, bilingual (English and Spanish) surfing instructor (2-3 people maximum/instructor, with young children having their own). A 20-minute instruction and security talk is given by the surfing instructor to the guest, prior to entering the water. Photos are optional and offered to be purchased as an extra service, available upon request.

Surfing and parasailing

Dante’s was top notch! Kids had a great time surfing and boogie boarding. First time for the family, and we all enjoyed it. We asked about parasailing and they set that all up for us as well and took care of everything. The parasailing wasn’t...More
