"We took a family vacation on a cruise ship and did standup paddleboarding in Costa Maya. Everyone had a great time and some commented that they could do this all day. We also opted for the drone photos which the family really liked. It was a little strange getting there but it was not a problem. There are a lot of things to do once you get there like shopping, massages, hair braiding, etc. Make sure you bring small bills because no shop around will break down money. All in all, everyone really liked it and it was easy enough for everyone to do. I did not feel comfortable standing up right away so I just paddled on my knees for a while. Then when I got the feel of the water, I stood up and it was no problem at all."

"One of the best experiences from our week long vacation in Costa Rica! It was so tranquil with the surrounding nature and, yet, a fun and adventurous way to be with the entire family with different athletic abilities."

"I was on holiday in Costa Rica earlier this year and our hotel put us in contact with Nicolas for surf lessons. Nic was great! He picked us up from bungalow hotel near the beach, set us up with boards, and introduced us to our instructor for the day. The wind was strong causing for very choppy water (not ideal for learning how to surf), so we ended our lesson 30 minutes early. Nic told my friend and I to meet him in the next morning since we couldn't do more on that day, so that we could finish out our lesson. The next day was bright sunny skies, I got even more time surfing than I bargained for!"
