I came to Puerto Escondido with the goal to become a self sufficient surfer over two weeks. I decided to book one week with Oasis to see how it went. It went really good so I booked another week. Over my two weeks with Oasis, my goal has been accomplished. Big thanks to Zicki and Roberto for all the excellent teaching and knowledge that they downloaded on to me. Also thanks to Betty at the front desk who had answers to all my questions and runs a super tight ship. The staff are all great, helpful and friendly and Roger is a first class owner. The accommodation and Cafe Nopal is also fantastic with great staff and ideally located. Thanks everyone, I'll be back and will be recommending you to all my friends!

I loved it here! It was pleasant and peaceful, and the surf instructors were great.

The location is perfect.. there are a ton of food options in walking distance, along with a beautiful beach if you just want to relax.

I will definitely be going back!

I spent two fabulous weeks with Oasis surf and Spanish School and I couldn't be happier. So much thought and care was put into making it an enjoyable experience - the accomodation was great, the entire team were such lovely people, the surf coaches and Spanish teachers were top notch. We enjoyed a fun Christmas Eve dinner together, every surf spot was great, and the communication was always good with an open, friendly culture. Thanks to Roger, Sol and everyone at Oasis - would definitely return again.

I took six surf and five Spanish lessons with Oasis while staying at El Nopal Surf House. It was a great experience; the instructors are skilled and professional. I improved a lot in both areas. Muchas gracias Oasis!

The surf lessons were of a very high quality with one teacher per 2 students which meant a lot of care and individual support. The instructors are empathetic and joyful and always cheer you on.

They could teach you a bit more an out how to catch a wave by yourself but at least you get pketty of actual surfing in that way. will definitely come again πŸ€™πŸΌ

We had a great time at Oasis Surf camp. The staff were very welcoming and available and the accommodation was very comfortable. We made good progress in surfing thanks to a great instructor. The Spanish lessons were also very useful.
I'd highly recommend it!

My partner and I stayed at Oasis surf camp this past week and could not recommend them enough. We chose the 1 week surf and stay package with 5 lessons, board rental, transportation to the surf lessons, and accommodation included.

When we first arrived, the check in process was incredibly smooth. The receptionists run both the accommodation and the admin for surf/Spanish lessons, so there is no confusion regarding scheduling. The first day we had surf theory in the morning, and even had a special treat when we realized the owner, Roger, was our theory instructor. He seemed very involved with the school, always around talking with the instructors, helping at the hotels, and happy to help you out with any questions. Following theory, we started with our first lessons. Our instructor throughout the week was Chabi, and I wouldn't have wanted a different instructor. He was incredibly adaptive to each student's strengths and had us standing on the first wave! Throughout the week he encouraged us to not only learn the in-water aspect, but also what to look for in the wave patterns, wind, what beach would be best, how to spot a good wave, etc. Over the five surf lessons, he had us feeling confident and excited to try some bigger waves. The instructors also do a nice job of communicating with one another about conditions, student needs, scheduling, etc.

We also chose to pay extra for a half-day surf trip and photographer. You will have a different instructor for the trips than for the lessons, and we were paired with Roberto. The surf trip was definitely more intimidating than the house beach, but he kept my partner and I comfortable and safe the entire time. I never felt as if I were alone during some of the larger waves or paddling into the tough surf. Roberto and Jay were the instructors during the trip and continuously encouraged us to keep trying, even the ones we thought we couldn't do. Their constant encouragement, fun personalities, and overall teaching patterns made it a 10/10 experience. The photographer that you pay for is also a pro-surf photographer, and if you're thinking about getting some cool photos, 100% worth paying the extra.

The accommodation we chose was Nopal Surf House, which is one of the surf houses run by Oasis. The staff were friendly and always helpful. The rooms were clean with a nice balcony, space for laundry, big bathroom area, and a small private kitchen for your use as well. We also paid extra for the AC rooms as Puerto can be very humid! Another big plus for me was that they have a 10pm "quiet down" rule. Many of the students have to get up early for lessons and I never had to worry about not getting enough sleep to loud noises or parties. The accommodation is quaint, quiet and overall a relaxing place to stay.

Throughout the week Oasis holds various fun events and activities to get to know the other students which makes it easy to meet people and have a fun time. Yoga classes were included in the package that we chose, and your body will thank you for some stretching after surfing! The Yoga instructor, Francesca, was fantastic.

Overall, six star experience with Oasis. Special shoutout to Chabi for the epic lessons, and Roberto and Jay for keeping us comfortable during the half-day trip. Thank you Oasis and I hope to be back soon!

I had an AMAZING time. My surf instructor, Charli, was wonderful and I was able to surf pretty well by the end of the week. He was very supportive and fun. My Spanish instructors, Isra and Rocio, were amazing. I learned a lot of Spanish in one week. Overall I had a great time and will definitely go back again one day!
