We had the best time while our 4 weeks in Puerto. We did the Spanish and Surf course and I must say our Spanish teacher Pedro and our surf instructor Diego were more than excellent! We have achieved so much in just one month. Furthermore everyone there is so kind and helpful. The only reason why we don't give a 100% rating is because of the accommodation. It's beautiful and very clean. For us personally looking back we would have liked to stay in a different accommodation since the kitchen was not really well equipped (no oven, 1 knife etc.) Which was important for us, but probably won't be as important for other travellers. So still if I had the chance to give a percentage I would give it a 90% - 95% !! Thank you guys, especially Diego and Pedro!!

I wanted to explore surf in Puerto Escondido again. I did it a couple of years ago but it felt quite improvised. What Oasis offers is a professional and organized experience for surf beginners because vs past experiences, they follow a schedule, they offer a trainer per 2 maximum 2 people and i felt super safe with my trainer in the water. I want to repeat next year :)!

Best experience of my life! Surf and Spanish classes were both 10/10! I would recommend Oasis to everyone I know and I can’t wait to go back. I highly recommend doing a homestay if you are looking to be totally immersed in Spanish. The family I stayed with was so kind, caring, and accommodating. I formed lifetime friendships with them and will visit them whenever I find myself back in the area!

Come here and do this. This was an excellent experience as someone lookingto improve my surf and my instructor greatly improved my surf. Zicki worked with me to help me eliminate some of my bad habits and improve my pop up and left turns. By the end of the 3rd day, I was riding 5-6ft waves, ripping lefts and pumping.

I also enjoyed the social aspect. I got to meet a lot of excellent 30s somethings from all over the world and enjoy some company out and about town.

I'll be back to Oasis. Thanks Zicki! Thanks Oasis!

Oasis Spanish & Surf School es muy increíble!!! I started the new year with this experience, which I will always remember. The fantastic instructors (shoutout to Pavel) made me feel safe and comfortable in the water. The entire team is a family and works hard to ensure everyone has a great time. In addition to the awesome surf lessons, their Spanish instructors (shoutout to Neftali) make it a truly enjoyable, fun experience. We loved it so much that we booked a half-day trip and were able to enjoy private beaches and secret surf spots. And to add to how great everything is, the stay in La Barca was cozy and clean and provided all we needed. Overall, I can't say what an unforgettable experience this was, and I'm looking forward to returning every year. Muchas gracias to the Oasis team for everything - you all are amazing!

Such an incredible experience!! I’m so sad to leave..

The beaches, waves, staff and resources were everything we could’ve asked for out of our family surf trip. I’m a beginner surfer and felt so safe in the water and was able to progress my form/stance in just a few days with their help.
We also did the Spanish and yoga classes. Our Spanish instructor (Neftali) was so fun, engaging and passionate. We got so much out of our sessions and learned a lot about the culture as well.
The yoga classes were perfect. A beautiful way to end the day at sunset on top of their rooftop palapa overlooking the town/beach.

Thank you Roger, Sol and Oasis crew for making this trip so magical. We’ll be back soon with more family and friends(:

While accommodations were good, surfing was very poor.

The accommodations had a nice bathroom, kitchen and patio. The common space, pool, was nice. But not really used, so very difficult to make new friends.

They should have cancelled the surf lesson all together. They took us to a beach with over 130 beginner surfers all battling for no more than 200ft of surf. Our instructor looked bored and just going through the motions. I got a chance at 5 waves total. 3 of which I had to bail because I was going right at another surfer. The waves ended very quickly at this beach as well.

Between injuring myself on some shallow rocks, and not being able to get excited for another lesson like the first one. I cancelled my second lesson. That’s when I found out they don’t give refunds. I recommend booking and paying for lessons at the last moment due to their policy on this. Or at least, simply don’t show up to lessons if you decide to change your mind, so that they will change this practice

My girlfriend not hit by another surfer from another school as well. She went a second time, and got a chance at 3 waves. She was done after this.

They were happy to hear I cancelled the lesson, so they could book someone else, and presumably get paid twice for the same spot.

They helped us out with some issues with the room, (don’t lock yourself out on the patio) but overall, this experience was overall disappointing.
