Why Caribbean Surf School?

Since 1998, Caribbean Surf School has been providing surf lessons to all levels, from beginners to advanced surfers. All our instructors are locals and have been surfing the waves of Puerto Viejo since their youngest age. Off the board, we offer adventure tours with the best service you could hope for to enjoy your vacation in Costa Rica. 

"Lessons by super smiley surf instructor Hershel Lewis are widely considered the best in town."

“I cannot say enough good things about Hershel and the Caribbean Surf School and Shop! Honestly, taking surf lessons with Hershel was the highlight of my time in Costa Rica, and if you can do one thing while in Puerto Viejo, make it this! Hershel is not only an amazing surfer himself, but also an amazing instructor. I would recommend this surf school to anyone, whether you’ve never touched a board before, or you’re already a seasoned surfer, since the lessons are so tailored to you.”
