What a great week with a great host Marco. He took his time to know me as a person as well as a SUP surfer on a solo strike trip as COVID was ending and CR opened up. He has a full quiver of performance boards and paddles to try and select from. He was always on time and had amazing local knowledge as he is a CR surfing legend and has named many of the breaks he will show you. His graciousness continued in the water and out of the water education to what I needed to work on and how to approach the conditions of each day. After a session we would celebrate with a cold can on Pilsen. Please use Marco and you will truly experience Pura Vida. As a suggestion if you do a custom package like I did is to make sure you line up a photographer through Marco before coming down to ensure availability.

I'm using this post as a last ditch effort to simply get a response from Marco. Our group has emailed him three times since our trip (scheduled for mid March) was canceled due to Costa Rica closing it's borders due to the corona virus. We had previously paid a deposit for the rental of standup paddle boards and are simply trying to inquire about the possibility of a refund. Marco has yet to acknowledge are numerous attmepts to contact him over the past three weeks.

I highly recommend CR SUP for your next paddle board adventure!! Marco and Lydia are the perfect guides and instructors. Great intro with training and they coach you expertly throughout the trip. I am a novice at paddle boarding but with their guidance I felt very confident. I am looking forward to my next paddle boarding adventure with Costa Rica SUP!!!

I booked a lesson, as someone who has never been on a paddle board before. The other planned participants canceled, but Marco was happy to proceed with the lesson as planned. With some prior background in coaching theory, I could recognize sound instruction in Marcos’ lesson. He made sure to pass on the fundamentals, took it out on the water and reinforced the lessons. With the lesson going well, he gave me the opportunity to go in and change out for a smaller board, that would advance my skills. Can’t say enough good things. Thanks Marco. Jeff

Costa Rica Stand Up Paddle Adventures is an excellent, detail-oriented program. Marco tailors it to your needs as a surfer and is very accommodating and can outfit all shapes and sizes with his boards and equipment, which does not exist elsewhere in Tamarindo. He was able to quickly identify fundamentals I was missing in my stand up practice and with gentle, consistent encouragement, helped me gain the skill I needed to make turns more effectively. I'm definitely coming back.
