The best part is the surfing. The instructors are very fun to be around and you get to know the other people in the classes when you go surfing each day. The staff are all very friendly and helpful with anything you need. Highly recommend!

I recently completed a one month stay at Oasis, enrolled in both daily surf program in addition to daily Spanish language lessons. I find it difficult to be succinct to encapsulate for experience because there is just so many attributes to praise. So bear with me while I provide some details. Oasis is a top shelf business, and it starts with the owners, Roger and Sol, who are not only some of the nicest people you’ll meet, but there interest in commitment to ensuring you have an great experience is boundless. They are checking in, they are solving issues that might arise, and being there for a month, inevitably a few little things do likely arise, and they solve the issues. They are pleasant, happy, and it reflects on the staff. All the surf instructors I had over the month were great. As a 52 year old, complete neophyte surfer, it was quite literally a bucket list item for me, and Oasis helped me progress over the course of the month significantly. You’re made to feel safe, with instruction, and instructors that are also pleasant, happy, and interested in seeing you succeed. So many attributes set this place apart. The fact that they have their own fleet of transport, vans and trucks, means that when the surf is changing in various spots, you’re not bound to the local break. I stayed in Casa Nopal for the month and it was great. New, functional, in suite kitchen, good bed, lovely pool, super clean, every two day cleaning, literally everything accounted for, water delivery to the suite, etc. I could not have been happier with the accommodation. Honestly, even the housekeeping staff at Nopal, led by Albia, was an example of the tone set by Roger and Sol. Super pleasant, chatty, and friendly staff that would provide and help with whatever you might need. Even one of the office staff hooked me up with her Dentist, and set everything up for me so I could just walk in an get a dental exam and cleaning. I tried to hook it up myself with little success, they took an interest…..an off example of willingness to help. The yoga classes, surf theory class, orientation class, should you avail yourself, were all great. The Saturday coaching class going over technique and pictures was this super helpful bonus I wasn’t expecting. Heck, Roger and Sol even deliver trays of food for the students attending the Saturday afternoon coaching clinic. It is ALWAYS the little details that seem to make the difference, and these guys really have left few stones unturned. I also enrolled in 90 minute Spanish language training everyday, and it was solid. I found it more challenging and mentally exhausting than the surfing, but looking back on the month, I did progress significantly, now able to hold and understand very simple basic conversations with locals. The organization and office staff keep the place running smoothly. I had a couple of hiccups over the course of a month but the key is that everyone is keen to get the issue sorted pronto, and to your satisfaction, which is really all you can ask for, but sadly, all too uncommon in my experience……these guys are the exception. Rarely do I find myself praising a business with such enthusiasm. However, when you do come across a business and experience that really takes your breath away, it needs to be said. From my perspective, and I will suggest it again, that the culture and great vibe of Oasis is largely a result of the effort and attitude that Roger and Sol bring everyday. They struck me not only as keen owners, who are running a great business and want you to be satisfied, but more importantly, they are just really, really, nice people…..and that goes an awfully long way to setting both the example and tone of the business, that from my experience was followed pretty much by everyone I came in contact with. I would not hesitate to come back, and in fact, I have a 22 year old daughter who wants to come, and a 50 year old spouse who’s keen as well, so we will be back!!

I stayed at la Barca for two weeks and it was just amazing. I loved every bit of my stay. La Barca is a beautiful place very cozy and clean. I took spanish and surfing lessons and the teachers were in both amazing. The surf instructors have such a huge knowledge and know everything about the spots they take you. The whole Oasis team is just great. Recommend it to anyone and I can’t wait to come back. Gracias

I stayed with my family at LaBarca for a week and took both surf and Spanish lessons with my twelve-year old son. We had a fantastic time. LaBarca was safe, comfortable, private and laid-back, but also offered opportunities to meet and interact with other travelers. The language lessons at Oasis were tailored to our level and were fun while also being really effective. The surf instructors got my son surfing for the first time, and gave me a lot of new skills while having a blast. They have great safety awareness and are really friendly too.

I stayed 2 weeks in LaBarca and enjoyed the full experience that Oasis offers, which included 3 hours of Spanish daily and surf program. Language school is well organized, you typically have classes with two different teachers (they are 1:1). I had classes with Alberto and Neftali. It was a good mixture of basics of Spanish, gramma and some vocabulary and a bit adventure and insight into culture as Neftali took me couple of times for a classes that were outside of the school (visiting local market or local restaurants). Pretty cool! Surf lessons are professional, you are being driven to a different surf spots depending on your level and current surf conditions. Be aware that the schedule can get intense if you book “all in” option. 🙂 The only thing that could be improved is the wifi at LaBarca which is pretty bad (if it works at all). They also have nice yoga classes at the rooftop, but they keep the rooftops closed otherwise. This was a bit annoying as you would want to work out there yourself of simply enjoy the view while having a morning coffee. Be aware that the school and accommodation in located in rather residential/more quiet neighborhood. There are good places to eat, but for more surf/part vibe you will always need to take a taxi to LaPunta or Zicatela.
