  • I cannot recommend Tortuga Surf School enough. I signed up for a five day surf camp and stayed with the owners (Michael and Celine) at their Hotel Perico Azul. I cant believe the waves I was catching by the end. Most importantly for me, thanks to Michael, I felt super safe knowing exactly what to do to navigate the water. If joining the camp I cannot recommend Hotel Perico Azul enough. Celine maintains a super clean, friendly, and relaxing hotel for both surfers and travelers.
  • Excellent experience, instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable. Best pineapple I've ever eaten! Good for beginners but you WILL be tired and a little bruised up afterwards, in a good way.
  • These guys are the real deal. They’re awesome instructors and so much fun. For a beginner like me, they were the perfect company to learn to surf with. I HIGHLY encourage them for anyone looking to surf.
  • Mike and his crew were amazing. My daughter (13) and I (43) took the learn to surf lesson during our trip to Costa Rica this July. They have a tent on the southern end of Jaco beach. The instructors were patient, helpful and overall a pleasure to learn to surf with. They made our first surfing experience a lot of fun and we're grateful. The location also seemed to be great for beginner or intermediate surfers; the beach was shallow for a fairly long distance and the waves were fun but not overwhelming. Within a few waves we were each able to stay on our boards. Thanks for a great adventure during our trip to Costa Rica!
  • Had the best experience with the Tortuga Surf team last year when we were in Jaco we are planning another trip soon so we can do the full surf camp experience!!! Mikey and his team of amazing local surfers will have you catching waves in no time. Polite and professional staff make everyone feel like family. We love Tortuga:)
