I came here for a week of surf and yoga. It is my second surf and yoga retreat so I can compare it with my previous experience. I had a really nice stay here, but I'm not giving 5 stars because it wasn't perfect. Pros : - the location is quiet. Playa Hermosa is only a 5 min walk and...

Guys. Please just go there. The Spanish lessons are awesome with lovely Augusto, who is always making sure you understand everything. Now I can finally understand spanish (ok, not everything but step by step ;)) although I could not speak a word Spanish before. I stayed at the Perfect Sunset School for 1 month and I don't regret it. The...

As the website says, the Perfect Sunset School ist really more than lessons! I stayed at the school for 3 weeks in the private room (which is very spacious). Costa Rica was my first time traveling alone, so I decided to just stay at the school for 3 weeks and take the intensive Spanish course (4 hours, 4 day a...

Perfect Sunset School is the best place to learn Spanish, surf or do yoga. I was lucky to spend two weeks there improving my Spanish and learning how to surf. The school is only a short walk away from Playa Hermosa, one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to. Perfect Sunset School is right above a supermarket so it's...

We have been coming to Santa Teresa a couple of years now and thought it's time we should learn some Spanish. We connected with the school and Gustavo came to our place for private lessons. Gustavo is an excellent teacher giving us the basics to get by and continued with more grammar and vocabulary. We feel so fortunate to have...

I had a wonderful experience during my three-week stay at the Perfect Sunset School! My main goal was to learn to surf and to work on my rusty spanish, but I experienced so much more from the hospitality, service, kindness and encouragement from the PSS team. The ratio of students to teachers was amazing! My first week of surfing, I...
