    This beach was our kids favorite to date for boogie boarding . They looked forward to it each day we were there . It’s a very clean beach and very big.

    We had a private yoga class for our family of 6 and Brooks was amazing. We had all levels of experience and everyone loved the class and would definitely do it again. Brooks was very hands-on to ensure we were doing things correctly and her instructions and guidance were second to none. We are already looking for a similar experience back in Cincinnati and can't wait to get involved here at home.

    My husband, my 14 year old daughter, and I had a fantastic time surfing at the beautiful, secluded part of Playa Grande. Johel and Tim were excellent, friendly, and patient instructors. They gave great feedback and were very encouraging.

    Tim took a lot of photos of us which was really nice. Surfing was one of our favorite highlights from our trip to Costa Rica. We will definitely return and surf with Mojo Surf again!

    Went as a group for a BBQ supper, it was delicious. Would have been nice to get some veg with the meat and potato though.

    We used Playa Grande Shuttle & Tours when our group of 25 stayed in Playa Grande for a Yoga Retreat. Hands down, this was some of the best service I ever received! I started planning a year in advance and from the beginning they were responsive and clear about their prices, what they could offer, and made helpful suggestions of what would work best for our group.

    They helped arrange transportation to/from the airport, and helped me select two excursions (Sunset Sail and Zip-lining) that were perfect for our group. Once we were in Costa Rica, they quickly helped arrange massage therapists to come to our property...twice!

    The team was always available to answer any and all of my questions. The drivers were on-time, friendly, and helpful. Thank you so much Ariel, Salem, and Mariana (and all those behind the scene) for your amazing service!

    One of the best yoga classes I had in a while: the place, the surrounding (close to the beach in the jungle) and of course thanks to Lizz, the teacher! She does an amazing job and for me it was the perfect combination between challenging flows and relaxation. She asks about preferences at the beginning and includes them smoothly into the session. As a surfer it is super cool because she sets the time according to the tide, so you can always do both: surf and yoga!!! She rounds off classes with a scented small towel over your eyes - best part ;-) Thanks Lizz and for everyone joining: enjoy!!!
