"Great package "
I was travelling solo, and it really was a great time in Santa Catalina. I had great surf and yoga lessons and there were awesome sunsets directly from the hotel bar.

"On a Vacation Beat, not too structured but fine"
Javi and Mancia at Vista Coiba hotel were kind and helpful. The pool and the view are lovely and restful. Keoni was nice, patient, and flexible as a surf instructor. And Miguel, as the organizer, try to please you and rearrange the schedule to make it work with your pace (I was travelling solo). He usually take care of you.

I went there during the low season so I got pretty much everything
For myself (private surf lesson, private dives). Santa Catalina is a very nice low key small village, much smaller and calm than what I expected... it is very easy to get there by bus (and they départ on time !!!). Miguel was able to attend my every request (to extend my stay, to add additional dives). He was very flexible... and went out of his way to accommodate me. Nataly, my surf instructor was AWESOME...

"4 Tage Santa Catalina"
Das Hotel war sehr gut. Gutes Essen, wunderbarer Ausblick (für schöne Sonnenuntergänge) und gute Lage (Es liegt zwischen dem Ort und dem Strand).
Der Guide half immer, wo er konnte, und war bemüht. Surfstunden und Tauchen waren überwältigend!
