Jose Rafols was a great surfing instructor who really made the process of learning how to surf a fun experience. He is very encouraging and friendly, and I would choose him to be my instructor without hesitation next time I come down to Puerto Rico.

Great scuba instruction, however I advise highly against paying for multiple days of diving and or scuba training in a lump sum but on a per day basis. Weather can easily delay a trip and haggling refunds is very difficult with management.More
