My girlfriend and I booked a surf and yoga retreat with Marieke and couldn't have asked for more. Everything was taken care of and we surfed at least twice a day as well as did as much awesome yoga as we could get in! Our food every day was amazing and the dinners at different restaurants each night were delicious....

I had an amazing time, with my sister and a friend at the beginning of January. Our Lucero trip was exactly what we were looking for! Santa Teresa is a very special place, but Jared and Marieke were what really made our trip great. They took care of us and are super-likable, warm people. Jared is an amazing surf instructor....

Overall i had a GREAT experience! Marieke and Jared were extremely hospitable. I ended up staying at a hotel next to where they normally host guests. I would have preferred to stay at the one where they normally host but the hotel i was in was a short walk away and was fine - mostly families and/or couples. As a...

There are really no words for our experience on this vacation! I came with my 2 brothers and booked surf and yoga lessons before we arrived. We were taken by the hand by Marieka and Jarred who helped plan our week and set us up with every adventure from hiking to the waterfalls, zip-lining, surfing lessons, massages and so much...

It was my first time visiting Costa Rica and I had the time of my life. Marieke helped my friend every step of the way with our travel plans, making it so relaxing to just sit and enjoy their services when we arrived. It is A MUST to use them if you want to learn how to surf. Jared took...

First off this trip was seamless because of Marieke and Jared. Marieke did all the heavy lifting booking our hotel, and activities (ziplining was amazing and is a must). She went out of her way to make sure my stay was nothing but amazing, and I can't wait to return and see both of them. Jared is the most amazing...

This was my second trip to Costa Rica, my wife's first. It couldn't have been better. Marieke and Jared were involved from the very beginning and helped us with everything from lodging, surfing, yoga, where to eat, where to go on our own adventures, anything we needed They were amazing. We'll be back and can't wait to see them again!

My husband and I had an incredible time in Costa Rica. Marieke and Jared put together a trip that was the perfect balance of rest and relaxation and activities.

Marieke and Jared coordinated a family surf trip to Playa Santa Teresa for ten of us this Christmas. I've always wanted to take my kids surfing. This was our best Christmas ever! These guys managed to accommodate all of us from my 72 year old mother in law to my three year old niece...and everyone in between. We had lovely...

Lucero Surf Retreats delivered what was unanimously considered the "best family vacation" we have ever had. Santa Teresa is a fantastic surf beach town, locals are incredibly friendly, our accommodations/villas were amazing, the outdoor activities numerous (zip line, ATV, SUP) and most important the surfing was the best/most consistent beach break wave we have ever enjoyed (my wife has been...
