Javier was so helpful to us during our stay in Playa Negra. We rented a board from him and also went on the guided waterfall trip with him. I felt kind of dumb having someone guide us up a trail as we are avid hikers and outdoor enthusiasts ourselves but after taking the trip with him, I quickly realized that there was no way we could have found this waterfall on our own. As well, Javier explained a lot about local flora and fauna along the way and that was really interesting. I highly recommend doing this trip, it was super fun.

Javier took a group of 4 of us on a hike to a beautiful, secluded waterfall. Javier clearly has great love for Playa Negra and the surrounding areas and was full of knowledge, teaching us about local flora and fauna. He is very professional but also super flexible and laid back - all pura vida. We also rented surfboards from him for our trip, which was a very easy experience. He let us exchange boards during our trip so we could try different ones depending on who was surfing and what wave we were surfing. I am sure he gives great surf lessons as well. I definitely recommend Javier and Pargos Adventures.

200% recomennded! I had surf lessons with Javier and that was a blast! I will never forget our session with humbak whale <3 That was not my first time so I have a comparison with other shops in CR and other countries. First of all - never saw a surf shop with surf board in such a great condition! They clean every board after lesson from wax! The number of boards you can choose from is impressive. Also for pro surfers! Javier is super experienced, he know best time and spots for surfing. He is more than happy to share his knowledge with students. And HE IS ALWAYS ON TIME! which in unique in this part of the world. I also did snorkeling tour with him and that was as well lots of fun. Pargos Adventures is definitely place to stop by!

Believe me I travel a LOT and I am very critical of the good service everywhere I visit. Javier and his team are truly extraordinary, I recommend them 100% every dollar invested is worth it 👌🏼 I will try to summarize by telling you the top 5 reasons why I chose Pargos Adventures. 1- Each tour they adjust to the needs of each person, they can be children, seniors, complete families and everyone enjoys it to the fullest. 2- Experience experience experience, it shows that Javier has more than 20 years in the area and knows every corner, tide or winds in Guanacaste 😎 3- Fair prices, the value of each tour is precisely what the tourism chamber in Costa Rica stipulates. 4- Perfect English and perfect knowledge of all safety measures for any of the tours ..., hiking, biking, surfing, kite etc. IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FEEL SAFE. 5- Fun Fun Fun !!! I think Javier must also be a comedian hahahaha we didint stop laughing at each activity, how nice to feel among friends and family ❤ thanks for that ... Although only 5 points are not enough to describe the fabulous experience I lived on each tour ... it seems to be a good start ... 😉 Again thank you very much for everything, we will be back soon 😎 PS: I can't wait to get on that train again ...

Javier and his team take care of all your needs. I e-mailed with him and asked to reserve some SUPs and surfboards – he was very responsive provided pricing and took care of us before and during our trip. In addition we did a SUP, led by Javier, tour thru the mangroves. The tour is an easy paddle up the Nando river. We did it with our two kids 14 and 16 and while they have paddled before even if you are a beginner this is an easy trip. Recommend the morning since it’s not as hot. Because of our water access, we decided not to rent the SUPs. Instead, we rented a couple of boogie (body) boards and surfboards ($15/day). Waves vary in Playa Negra. While we were there the biggest were about 3-4 feet (1-1.2m) so a longer surfboard was better and it was perfect for boogie boarding. Overall Pargos is an excellent company. Javier was fantastic and active in each part of his business – he lead our SUP tour at 8 am and we saw him on the beach at 1130 giving surf lessons!
