What our customers are saying…

VAMOS Youth is the MOST needed program around here. The water safety training programs are a MUST for anyone who plans to surf, boogie board, or just enjoy the beautiful waters of Costa Rica. Learning to identify trouble spots and how to handle water issues as well as how to help others gives me a vital sense of comfort when my kids are out in the water. Thanks, Aude – for all you do to help educate and inform our kids!!

The instructors are young, energetic, knowledgeable and strong. They know how to build confidence to help you overcome fear and be confident in the pool or ocean.

This is the best activity to register your kids in, if you want safe, confident, Ocean wise children. They have so much fun, while building self esteem, being physically and emotionally challenged! If you live by or near the ocean. If you are visiting for any length of time. This could save your child’s life. All while building friendships and being exposed to great mentors. Thanks Aude and Stephanie.
