Our time at Dante's Watersports was so enjoyable! The instructors were incredibly helpful and made sure that everyone in our group got up right away. After we were done with our lesson, they were kind enough to let us continue to use their surfboards and boogie boards, and also gave us a ride back to our hotel. 10/10 recommend!!

While on spring break with 12 friends we took surf lessons through Dante's Water Sports and had a blast. They provided transportation to the beautiful beach in Manuel Antonio where they gave a quick lesson and then brought us into the ocean to surf. We were all new to surfing but with the help of the instructors really got the... More

We had so much fun learning to surf with Dante and his crew! Alejandro was our instructor and he made us feel so comfortable and safe! My husband got up on his very first try and me, I was standing up by my second go! We do a lot of yoga and he helped us understand better by using yoga... More

Never thought I'd take a surf lesson, but my fiancé really wanted to so I was on board. We got connected with Dante's Water Sports - so happy we did! Awesome time, great instructors who took the fear out of surfing. They were in the water with us so big help. Great adventure -highly recommend!!

I went in the morning to take surfing lessons, and these guys were the best! So friendly, gave us 1 instructor for 2 people, and let us hang on their beach area/ chairs for the rest of the day. They were accommodating and organized - definitely recommend.

Water was so warm can go right in without hesitation. This totally helped in trying surfing for the 1st time. Instructor had great cueing when to get on surf board, when to paddle and get up with keep knees bent. This allowed me to ride the waves where I would never been able to on my own. Cabana offered nice... More

Dante and his team of Alejandro and the boys were the best. Took both daughters out and Alejandro and crew had us all up and surfing in no time flat. Pick up at the hotel and return included and plenty of flexibility in between.

A wonderful way to learn to surf and a great... More

Based on my experience in other sports, I judge my balance to be decent but not spectacular. I didn't go in for skateboarding much as a kid and had never gone surfing before, so I expected a somewhat frustrating but still fun experience. Taxi was dispatched to my hotel and took me to the beach; return trip is also included... More
