Excellent- especially Tropicsurf

I had an amazing stay at the four seasons over mother's day with my mom. I booked my trip through tropicsurf and Anisa (who works at tropicsurf at the four seasons costa rica) was wonderfully helpful and detail oriented. Malcolm helped me improve my surfing and took SO much extra time making sure I was at the right surf break for my skill level.

Phenomenal staff, delicious food and fun Tropicsurf lessons

I loved my boat trips with TropicSurf guide, Malcolm, organized by his terrific wife Anisa. The waves at Iguanitas (late April, early May) were perfect for a beginner (I went from a level 3 to level 4), and the natural beauty was stunning.

Tropicsurf and Four Seasons Papagayo- perfection!

The folks at Tropicsurf (Anisa & Jerry) got these two landlocked Texans up on surfboards in no time! Highly recommend them if you want to give surfing a try. Super friendly, beginner waves were a 5 minute boat ride away, and they had the BEST Costa Rican pineapple to snack on the trip back to the hotel.

Nature and adventure meets relaxation and romance

I fulfilled a lifelong dream to surf and felt like a natural “goofy foot” surfer thanks to Malcolm and Anisa, who make a great team at Tropicsurf.

Costa Rica = amazing

Booked surfing with Tropicsurf and Malcolm, Anisa and Jerry are simply fantastic. Longboard, shortboard ...big or small waves...they have it sorted out perfectly. My highest recommendation to them. Thanks again for a great time in the water!

Malcolm and his wife Anisa run the business together. They were so warm and inviting from the minute we stepped into their shop. They took a group of 5 of us to a beach with beginner waves and made the experience so much fun!

My all-time favorite vacation!

Our family surf guide through Tropicsurf, Jesse, was so wonderful with our three children and we were all standing up and surfing faster than we could have ever thought possible. Even my Mom caught a wave!! Malcolm and Anisa were also super helpful setting us up with an amazing room and organizing our surf trips

Cannot wait to return

Our kids took surfing lessons from the Tropicsurf guys at Playa Blanca. They were really good with the kids and got them so excited we ended up doing 3 different lessons throughout the week.

Tropicsurf was fantastic

Tropic Surf at the Four Seasons in Costa Rica was 5 stars all around. Jerry has conditions dialed and Malcolm was on point with communication. Don’t hesitate to get out with this crew whether it’s your first time or you been surfing for 20 years. My friends were super jealous when I told them how good Witches Rock was! The Four Seasons was amazing and made us feel right at home. I’ve been a professional mountain for 20 years and was impressed with Tropicsurf. I would use them anywhere in the world! See you again soon! Brenton Reagan IFMGA Certified Mountain Guide.

Tropic Surf Experience, Malcolm & Anisa are amazing!! 

I just spent a few days at the Four Seasons at Peninsula Papagayo for work (amazing resort) and was able to sneak away for a few hours to surf at Witches Rock through Tropic Surf, and it was a BLAST!! Malcolm and Anisa are both amazing. I reached out to the hotel before getting to Costa Rica, to set up some surfing and they put me in touch with Anisa. She was fantastic, so helpful and reachable and she and Malcolm went out of their way to make the limited window within when I could go surfing work. Malcolm was a wealth of knowledge about the area and break, and was so helpful, encouraging and patient with me in the water (I’m a level 4 in Tropic Surf’s level scale), I had so much fun!!!! Malcolm and Anisa are two of the friendliest people I’ve met, and the whole experience was wonderful. I will definitely be coming back to stay at the Four Season so that I can go out surfing with their help and coaching again!!

Exquisite. One of the best among the best.

Take a surf lesson with Tropicsurf! They are located on the activities beach and you'll need to book in advance. I went to sign up and the lesson was full however, they kept me informed of a cancellation and I was able to join. After a quick training, you'll get on a boat and head for a private beach. Hands on lessons that had me, a true beginner, standing and catching waves on my own by the end. Such a fun experience, so well done, and a true bucket list item.

Perfection! HIGHLIGHT :: SURFING with Malcolm!!

Our FAVORITE activity that we were so psyched to discover at the hotel on our arrival was our surfing lesson with Malcolm. He operates a franchise of the Australian born Tropicsurf -- he provides expert lessons for both beginners and advanced surfers who want to hit the real surf spots. I had always wanted to experience surfing, and I will say for me, my 7 year old son, and 46 year old husband, this could not have been more of a rewarding experience. Malcolm took us by boat to a cove around the corner where the waves were present but not too scary and perfect for beginners. We all got up on our boards and rode the waves-- it was truly awesome! We are joyously reliving the moments right now with the photos he provided. I would highly recommend that 4 Seasons put a link to Tropicsurf on their website so that guests can learn how extraordinary this opportunity is before they arrive-- and pre-book a lesson!

Highlight of the trip was Tropicsurf!

We had an incredible 2 days of surfing with Malcom at Tropicsurf. Anisa was really helpful setting everything up for us and Malcolm was not only an amazing instructor and extremely knowledgeable but he was also a lot of fun to hang out with! We surfed in 2 different amazing locations. Would highly recommend checking out Tropicsurf during your stay at the Four Seasons!

Amazing Vacation

Thank you for such a wonderful surfing vacation!  We had the very best time and really appreciate everything you did to make it so amazing.  

Malcolm took such great care of all four of us on the water. Samantha already wrote for her school assignment that her favorite part of Thanksgiving Break was surfing with Malcolm.  Little Jonathon can’t stop smiling about the waves at Witches Rock.  We definitely want to come back again next Thanksgiving.
