Our instructor Marcos made sure we had the best experience surfing there is. My husband and I were in Costa Rica for 3 days and decided to take lessons every day. Marcos was always on time picking is up. He provided us with great surf boards and rashguards. He was able to immediately feel our individual strengths and weaknesses. He gave each of us the specific tips based on our aptitudes for the sport. We couldn't have dreamed of a better experience. Thanks Marcos! We are already planning our next trip to Playa Grande

We had an awesome time learning to surf on our private beach in Playa Grande with the You Are Costa Rica guys. They were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and warm, making learning to surf fun (and appropriate for all ages). We had a group of 12, with a variety of ages (kids, teens, and adults), and everyone enjoyed themselves and were even able to get up on the board! We would highly recommend these guys!

After a week long yoga retreat in Playa Grande, I was hoping to grab a quick surf lesson and my hotel connected me with Marcos. He was a thorough and patient instructor. I felt safe in the water, learned a ton and got to ride some wonderful waves. Highly recommend.

We did a “local” tour (non-tourist area) and our guide was amazing! Highly recommend!!! Prior to coming to Costa Rica, Belize was our favorite place but that how now been replace with CR. The people are wonderful and the services we got were the highest! Marcos was the best, his English is top notch and he knew all the local places that only locals go. Wonderful adventure Marcos, thank you!

Marcos was excellent! He gave us a group surf lesson and was so helpful and attentive. He checked in on us throughout the week to make sure our board rentals were ok! We can't wait to go back!
