Great rental

I rented a surfboard for a week. The shop has a great selection of high end boards. The stuff is very friendly and you can change boards depending on the surf

The owner and manager Marq, are nice guys. I broke a board and they were very reasonable to deal with, no drama and treated me fairly.

We recently ended up taking 5 days of lessons with Christian and were very grateful for his patience, persistence and expertise. We went from very novice to being out the back past the break and riding waves. We also rented boards from them for the week which worked out great. Our accommodation was a bit far to walk with the... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly amazing staff with a happy "pura Vida". I was new to surfing and had a very patient and helpful instructor, even when I was a little cranky ;) (ya nelson). My husband and I bought a 5x surf package and after 4 lessons I would have preferred to read and tan on... More

My family and I moved to Playa Guoines 3 months ago. We all surf and are loving the waves here. I borrowed a buddies sup and caught some great waves but broke his leash. Coconut Harrys had a nice selection to choose from and I found exactly what I needed. Hopefully I can continue to ride his sup :) The... More

We love working with Mark and the team at Coconut Harry's to take lessons. We first visited Costa Rica with friends in July 2011. With four adults and four children taking surfing lessons ( some for the first time), we were impressed by how well the instructors were matched with our varied skill sets. We enjoyed the trip so much,... More

My best friend and I had lessons every day for a week with Cristian and he is super patient. He accomodates for all level of abilitities and made sure we both got the most of of it. He's really friendly and great fun to spend 2 hours with each morning, we highly recommend him!

I took an intro lesson with Christian during our trip to Nosara. The surf shop is close to the beach and they have a good selection of boards. Lesson was great and the price was very reasonable. Christian had me up on the board in no time.

Coconut Harry's is one of the coolest places to find great gifts to take home to those friends and family members that weren't lucky enough to visit Nosara. The staff and especially the owner Steve went out of their way to help us find what we needed. Very friendly! They had a great deal on t-shirts so I bought several... More

Just got back from a week in Nosara, which is about 51 weeks too short for anyone who is intending on visiting. The shop was closed for off-season, and the wi-fi and phone were out at the house we rented due to the recent quake. Regardless, Marq (the manager) still managed to find us, open up the shop, and get... More
