We spent a week surfing at Playa Guiones with our five kids. Hector and Steven were really amazing with the kids and everyone--even our six-year-old daughter--had success. We also took the waterfall/river kayak tour and it was a fun adventure. Everything was more expensive than...More

Was just in Nosara for a week and tried twice to set up a paddle-surf lesson with Cacho (he's the only one who offers the lesson) and both times he just didn't show up. Don't waste your time with these clowns.

Cacho's is a great place to rent a surf board and right at the corner where just a few yards away is the beach! Prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly.
