  • Echoing other commentary, I highly recommend both Tortuga Surf Camp and Hotel Perico Azul. Mike, Celine, and their staff are all fantastic! I stayed for a bit over a week in early to mid-February, tak...  more »

  • 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:)
  • Best surf camp, great talented "local" instructors treated like family from day one. Amazing experience. Defiantly going back again
  • I was with Tortuga surf school for a week long surf camp. I have to say that this one of the best experiences I've had in a while. The instructors are amazing and know exactly what they are doing. Mike is a super cool guy and cares deeply about giving everyone a great experience. Aside from surfing, Mike took me to several jungles and many local restaurants. I learnt a ton and can highly recommend the school. Also great value at 50 USD for 2 hours of time with one instructor.
