Awesome adventure with awesome guides! You start at a private beach and paddle to a public one. You will learn a lot on this trip and when they snorkeling let us dive down! Gorgeous place totally worth it!

Surfing + water springs
We had an amazing time with Dante. He organized a special day for us. First we went surfing at matapalo beach where the four instructors taught us the basics. Then we visited some beautiful water springs and enjoyed a delicious meal. Thank you Dante!!! Hasta luego!

Perfect way to end our trip in Manuel Antonio
We had a great time and the waves and staff could not have been better. We have 2 kids (6 and 8) and we were concerned for their safety, but the staff did a great job of popping their boards over the waves and stabilizing their boards. Having a helper in the water was even something I appreciated because, hey, its a lot of work out there. We spent a good 2 hrs surfing and then my wife and kids trying boogie boarding. Everyone was wiped out by the end. I am so glad we chose Dante's.

Great time surfing
Dante’s was the perfect place as a never-before-surfer. The instructors gave us a good overview of how to surf and then worked with us to finally stand up. Both my 13 year old and I were successful! Instructors were very nice, patient and helpful. Dante picked us up from the hotel on short nice (we literally called 10 minutes before we wanted to start) and fed us fresh fruit and drinks. Would highly recommend them for your surfing adventure.

Awesome surf lesson
Alejandro is a wonderful surfing teacher! He's so encouraging and great at instruction; he's also really good at pointing out when you should probably go hydrate and rebuild your energy by consuming the delicious pineapple that he's offering you. Although the instruction only lasts less than 30 minutes, you can use the surf boards as long as you want so you can get in plenty of practice afterwards. And if you find that too exhausting, you can swap those for boogie boards. It makes for a sweet deal for a day at the beach. One thing to note: like many other local activities, this one comes with an optional photo package. While it's cool to have those action shots, we realized after we purchased them that the light balance was way off on most of them. Granted, it was a very sunny morning, but it seemed like the sort of thing that professional photographers should be aware of and know how to correct.

My Son's Favorite Part of Our Trip
My 9 year old son and I took lessons. Both of us were brand new to surfing - the instructors took time with my son to make sure he had a good time and got some good waves in. He took a tumble on one of the first tries, but they were very helpful in getting him comfortable and back on the board again.

The four of us embarked on this adventure to go surfing. Thanks to the incredible skill and patience of the instructors all four of us were successful!!!!!!! Dante picked us up at the hotel. His enthusiasm was contagious. Alejandro gave us instruction, and off we went. Surfing was so much fun! We finished up with delicious pineapple. We highly recommend Dante's Water Sports!

Awesome Surf Lessons for some crappy surfers
Dante was amazing and so accomodating. He picked us up at the Tulemar Villas and showed us great hospitality-allowed us to hang out all day at the beach and took us home when we wanted. Alejandro and William taught our family to surf- They were so awesome. What a great day.

Surfing lessons- highly recommend!
It was our first time surfing and Alejandro was an excellent instructor! He taught us how to embark our surf boards, establish our position, read the waves, and by the end of our lessons we were riding the waves. It was so much fun and we would definitely do it again!! Highly recommend! Great company, water and pineapple condiments were also included. All in all a memorable first surfing experience and we will definitely be surfing again in the future!

Alejandro is a great surf instructor!
My wife and I did two days of surf instruction in Manuel Antonio with Alejandro as our surf instructor both days. He is full of energy and knows how to instruct very well. Both my wife and I were catching waves and surfing. We still need a lot of work to get better but Alejandro was a big help in learning how to surf better. If you come here for surfing as for Alejandro by name! Enjoy and Pura Vida!

Surf Lessons with William and Eric
Today my husband and I had an AMAZING time surfing with William and Eric. We had both only tried surfing one time 2 years ago. They were so helpful and patient with us! I am very uncoordinated and Eric never seemed annoyed by my lack of skills. They were great and we had a a really fun time! Also the hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient. I would highly recommend Dante's if you are looking for a lesson!!!
