Gustavo was a super fun and engaging teacher for my entire family. We spent two weeks in Playa Hermosa near Santa Teresa, and Gustavo came to our house to teach my wife and I and our three teenage children. We all learned a ton and from the first day Gustavo truly became our friend. He's very casual and relaxed in...

I took Spanish classes in different countries when travelling in Central and South American and Gustavo's were by far the best! And besides being a great teacher, he is also a great person to hang out with and a great guide. I didn't stay at the school but the location is great, super close to the best beach to surf...

The week we spent in the PSS was perfect! The surf lessons with Gustavo were great as he gave very helpful, individual technical feedbacks and pushed us to a higher level. His passion for surfing is contagious. The Yoga lessons are in a very nice spot (Pranamar Retreat) a few minutes away from the camp and with a great teacher....

I stayed for 2 weeks, and took the Spanish classes only, but I deeply regret not taking the surfing lessons also. It was definitely an unforgettable experience, and totally exceeded my expectations. It is not easy to have in a short trip that sensation of really experiencing the place. After a week, I already felt at home. At Perfect Sunset...

Our family with kids ages 13, 10, 7, spent over 2 weeks with Gustavo and crew for surf and Spanish. Gustavo was very accommodating and flexible. He worked great with the kids(and parents), and even helped me change a flat tire on my car! He loves to surf and it is obvious, Spanish lessons great for everyone as well.
