Sam Parks from United States
“I recently returned from a week at Morro Negrito and the entire experience was awesome. I booked this trip months in advance and watched the reviews pour in from other surfers. I wasn't sure exactly how everything was going to come together but it did; flawlessly. We arrived in Panama and were greeted by David who was amazingly helpful and took great care to ensure that we had everything that we needed. The staff in Puerto Yurre (Ruly, Elise, Lucy, Raul, Chano and Chefi) were unbelievably cordial and really went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and prepared for the day's adventures. The surf breaks were incredible, the islands were beautiful and the people were warm and welcoming. Our surf guide, was knowledgeable and went to great lengths to ensure that we had an awesome experience. Already planning to go back next year.”
