We stopped in with almost no time left in Nosara and we scheduled a lesson with Danny, who clearly loved his job. He was focused on safety and teaching about principles instead of merely trying to rush through the lesson. 100% recommended.

I had private classes (totally makes sense to take private classes, since the price difference to group classes is not too big and it allows you to learn so much more compared to group classes) with Agua Tibia during my stay in Nosara. The classes...More
