The best tour!!! My friends and I did a bioluminescent tour with Toño and Emilio, and it was definitely one of our best experiences in Puerto. The tour surpassed all of our expectations. It included transportation, a boat ride with bird watching along the lagoon, time on a gorgeous beach at sunset, the best seafood dinner we've ever had, a bonfire, and a night swim in the bioluminescent water. The tour was so comprehensive and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better time! Toño was both super knowledgeable about everything and also entertaining. I'd highly recommend any tour of the tours with him. The next time we return, we'll definitely book with Vidasurf!

The best bioluminescence tour My friends and I did the bioluminescence tour with Vidasurf and honestly for me that was the best experience ever. Not only did we see bioluminescence while swimming under a tent in the lagoon at night but I also had the opportunity to go on a surfboard that was attached to the back of the boat and be towed while trying to keep my balance 😂. It was a fantastic and unforgettable experience! Then we headed to the beach to watch the sunset and sat around a bonfire while roasting marshmallows before heading back to the lagoon to see the bioluminescence at night. I would definitely 100% recommend this tour to everyone! It was so magical and almost unreal.

Surfing for beginners First ever surf lesson and by the end I was able to stand up and catch a wave (with lots of encouragement). They also took photos and videos, which is SUPER helpful when it comes to figuring out what you’re doing wrong and how to improve your stance/how to shift weight. Great experience!

LOVED our surf lessons My boyfriend and I took 4 surfing lessons with Toño and his team while we were in PE. We loved our experience and could not recommend it more! Next time we're in PE, we will definitely hit them up for more lessons. -Transportation: we were picked up at our AirBnb and dropped back off at our AirBnb -Learning to surf: Toño taught us the rules and basics really well -Practice: The team pushed us really hard and really wanted us to catch waves. We had a blast. -Communication: communicating via WhatsApp was super easy! -Class sizes: class sizes ranged from 2-5, and even when there was 5 we were able to catch a lot of waves.

Gran Experiencia Excelente experiencia, Jose le dio clases a mi hijo y logro que se parara en la tabla rapidisimo, con toda la paciencia! le enseño de tal forma que ya quiere regresar y seguir apendiendo! Toño nos explico todo y se nota que no hay nada que les apasione mas que el surf y enseñarlo a los demas. En verdad lo recomendamos!!!

Friendly & Experienced Surf Instructors My friends and I took surf lessons with Toño and his team. They were awesome! We started with safety and board positioning training on land to make sure everyone was comfortable before entering the water. Once in the water, the instructors were by your side helping you navigate and ride the waves! I highly recommend Toño and his team. - Mac

Surf Lesson We had a great time surfing with Antonio and his team! We were all beginners and they were patient as we learned, but also pushed and coached us to catch the waves. I definitely feel more confident hopping on a surf board now. We met them at Playa Carrizalillo beach at 9am for a ~2.5hr lesson, started with on-land instruction and practice, then headed into the water. After the lesson, our instructors took us to a great local breakfast spot and even dropped us back at our hotel. The Vidasurf team was friendly, quick to communicate via WhatsApp, all equipment was in great condition, and boards and rash guards were included in the price.
