What an awesome first experience surfing and Mauricio and Roger were very patient, knowledgeable teachers. We had so much fun we are going back again. I highly recommend using Jaco Surf Club.

Mauricio was an amazing teacher! This was the highlight of my trip. He was also super helpful in navigating the area and helping us find fun and unique places to go!

Mauricio came recommended by our hotel for private lessons. He definitely did not disappoint. He came with his SUV and collected my 2 girls and brought us to the beach. He had boards ready based on their experience and size....and had chairs for mom and dad to chill while watching. He was amazingling patient, spoke great English, and had a good sense of humour. It was easy tonidentify he was avery safe and experienced instructor. Girls got up in no time and enjoyed 2 hours at a very fair price. The hospitable nature of Mauricio continued when he offered to drive us to do an errand and waited to take us back to hotel. He then forwarded some amazing pics of the surfing to attempt to make more money, just in his genuine good nature. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Mauricio is your guy for surfing. My friend and I had our very first surfing lesson here and it was such a great experience - definitely the highlight of our trip. Mauricio is one of the coolest guys you'll ever meet and he knows everyone in Jaco. He set us up with our surfing instructor Rodin who was just as cool and a really good teacher. We spent roughly 2 hrs in the water and caught some pretty good waves. Be prepared for a good workout! Mauricio looked on from the beach with his dog Lola and took some awesome photos of us surfing. Mucho gracias! Pura vida!

I took my first surf lesson with Mauricio at Jaco surf club and it was amazing! Me and my boyfriend had so much fun we took two others lessons with him. Mauricio is so nice he knows everyone in Jaco , is generous and a very good instructor ,couldn't ask for a better one. You will learn a lot, have fun and be safe. If I go back, I'll take others lessons with him for sure.

I met Mauricio randomly and he offered to give me a lesson with a board during sunset. Like others mentioned, it was apparent he was well known and liked in the area. He is very friendly and makes conversation with his students well. He was definitely very helpful in teaching basic skills and boosting your confidence in getting up on the board. I would hear him cheer for me when I was successful. It was amazing to have a lesson at sunset to watch it while in the water. Overall, 100% recommendation here!

Mauricio is the man to know in Jaco. The man is a staple to the community and is well respected through out the Jaco and Hermosa area. Has vast wealth in the friend department. His love for the beach is evident when he is on the sand. Mauricio more than anything helped me to get comfortable paddling and getting to feel out the wave more. In one week without much experience with the ocean or surfing I was able to catch a glimpse of what real surfing is. This is due to daily lessons with Mauricio and his constant motivation to practice and feel out surf. It helped a lot. He is a patient dude with a lot of experience. He will test your limits if he feels like your capable of performing. Mauricio is a local who has a big enough heart to have all of Jaco and Costa Rica in it. Truly a great authentic time and felt like I was a long time student of his. Above all he is extremely reasonable. What a great Mae! Keep growing the dream. Pura Vida,Brother.

Maurico is a great instructor, he takes the time to show you, he also watches you closely to tell you what you are doing wrong and explains how to do it right. I would recommend to anyone that goes to Jaco beach to surf for the first time to book him a few times.

Mauricio is a great instructor/surf coach! I wanted to improve my surfing and was very happy with his tips and coaching! I would recommend him to anyone coming into town! I also watched how great he was with beginners too. Thank you so much!!! Pura vida!

Mauricio is the best surf instructor one could wish for. He really cares for the lessons he gives, helps you with everything, suggests the best times, the most appropriate boards and gives you a push when needed, while leaving space for individual learning. I have quite some experience in other extreme sports, but after two lessons with other instructors I wasn' t that convinced. I then took lessons with Mauricio and the experience was amazing.

Mauricio was the best surf instructor! Our first trip to Costa Rica and our three kids caught so many waves with his instruction. He was positive, helpful and just a really nice guy. We are going back and will definitely surf with Jaco Surf Club again! The Lukes Family Colorado

This is our second time visiting Jaco Beach with our 3 teenagers. And our second time arranging surf excursions with Mauricio. It is so wonderful to know that Mauricio has our family's best interest at heart. He knows all the different break and all the best times to surf. With 3 different levels of surfing in my family, he has been able to accommodate all our desires! He takes pride and caution in treating my kids like family. He is an outstanding instructor and surfer. From the beginner surfer to expert, Mauricio is the best!

Our family of four took a two hour group lesson and loved it! Mauricio and his crew were extremely attentive and made sure that everyone surfed to the best of their ability. Highly recommended for families!

I took a 1 hour lesson with Mauricio on Nov. 24th and it was awesome. This was the second time I had ever surfed and the first time was 4 years ago so for all practical purposes I knew nothing. Add to this that I'm no spring chicken (52 years old) and you can see Mauricio didn't have a whole lot to work with. In spite of this I can't speak highly enough about how encouraging Mauricio was as well as patient. His enthusiasm and attitude was infectious and it was impossible not to enjoy one's self. I'd recommend Mauricio to anyone interested in learning to surf and to any age or skill level.

Thank you, Mauricio, for such a wonderful experience. My husband and I signed up for a week of surf lessons. We could not have asked for a better teacher than Mauricio. He is a professional in every way and greatly exceeded our expectations for surf instruction. And he just so happens to be a fantastic photographer. We were not expecting to have such great photos of us catching waves. Thanks again for making our trip so memorable. We look forward to going back next year, and, of course, surfing with Mauricio will be the first item on our list of things to do.

What an amazing experience. Both Alejandro and Mauricio were great instructors! They were also very accommodating as one of my girl friends was a little more advanced so Alejandro took her farther out and Mauricio stayed with my friend and I. This was my 2nd surf lesson but my 1st time actually "surfing" thanks to Mauricio's great instruction. He also took some great photos capturing this memory of a lifetime! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We've sign up for a whole week with Jaco surf Club and we had the best vacations ever! Mauricio is a realy good surfinstructor with a lot of experience. He knows exactly about waves and and how to teach so he makes sure that you always feel comfortable. He got good boards, rashguards and put you on the board wich fits perfect for you. Also the video and foto analysis he makes helped me to learn a lot. As we booked a whole week with him beside the surfing he took us around to diferent surfbreacks and did some nice tours with us. because he is a local you get to see a lot more than just the "normal tourist" stuff he showed us some secret spots and at the end of the vacacion we felt like we saw "the real" costa rica. We defenetly come back and i can recomend this school to everyone who wants to learn from the best!
