"I went from being a first time surfer (had never done it prior to this vacation) to paddling out "past the break"! Toro was so kind and patient. He was able to teach me so much about water safety, surf etiquette, surf technique, etc. I always felt safe with him, which was most important to me. However, he was able to push me to do a lot that I had no idea I was capable of doing. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Toro and the hospitality I had with Blue Surf Sanctuary."

"We stayed there for 8 nights in a group of 3 families with young kids. The shared kitchen is great and so is the small pool which offers some shade during the hot mid-day hours. The team, the receptionists, cleaning team, night guards, and maintenance staff were super friendly and helpful. We had great time there!"

"Blue Surf Sanctuary was all we needed to have an incredible spring break experience. My deceased husband was the only one with surf experience but all of us got up by the third day. Our children, a 10-year old son and 7-year old daughter, had a fantastic time. Toro and Danny were incredibly patient, kind and encouraging. Our room was comfortable and clean and we enjoyed the pool every day. The food was incredible everywhere we ate in Santa Teresa. It was an excellent adventure!"
