I booked the Yoga and Surf package with a friend through Montezuma Yoga and had Mauricio teach us for the 5 days. I was anticipating that yoga would be the main part of my trip, but it turned out surfing was, which was such an incredible experience. It's a 45 min hike to the surf beach across beaches and through... More

Mauricio, the owner and instructor at High Tide Surf School, is a local that has been in the business for a long time. He has access to one of the biggest and most secluded beaches around Montezuma that I would never have found otherwise. He is an experienced instructor with impeccable ethic who prioritizes his clients' safety and well-being (he... More

I visited Montezuma Yoga in December 2016 and opted for the yoga and surf package. The instructor was Mauricio from High Tide Surf School. Mauricio was nothing short of amazing. He was patient and a wonderful person. Surfing with Mauricio was one of the highlights of my visit to Montezuma. Thank you Mauricio!

My entire trip to Montezuma was pretty great, but learning to surf under the guidance of Mauricio was by far the highlight of my time in Costa Rica. I had unsuccessfully attempted surfing during a previous trip to Costa Rica but decided to have one last go of it before completely giving up. The surf gods must have known that... More

Mauricio is an awesome surf instructor and does a great job of tailoring his teaching and feedback for a variety of skill levels! Even if you're just looking to rent a board, he is right on the beach, so no need to carry your board from town!

I returned last week from Montezuma, where I did a 5-day yoga and surf package through Montezuma Yoga. The afternoons spent surfing were by far the best part of the trip! This was my first time surfing, and I was quite nervous on our first day. After just a few minutes into the first lesson, I felt reassured by Mauricio's... More

Bottom line: Mauricio is experienced, FUN and kind. He always has your best interest and safety in mind. Whether your a novice surfer or not- he is the best! Super convenient too- he meets you at your hotel and you take a beautiful walk through town and along the beach (about 40 mins), don't have to carry boards and gear... More
