We had a wonderful time, and felt highly taken care of by our hosts Marieke and Jared. They struck a terrific balance between curating our trip for us, and giving us time to experience the area on our own. They were highly responsive to any and all needs, and volunteered to have an Easter Egg hunt set up for us...

Jared the surf instructor is a total pro--a great teacher and very patient...and a great hiking guide. The breakfast and lunch is great everyday, and Marieke and Jared will guide...

The location was very centric everything walking distance, and very pretty hotel. The town is very active and fun for beach activities, the town roads in and out are pretty bad but does not refelct the quality of the restaurants and people.

Amazing family trip! Two families accommodated as close to the beach as you can get - perfect for learning to surf. Lucero staff were great - very attentive and focused on meeting all or our needs. They arranged a chef to cook for us which was amazing and cheaper than two families going out to meals - the accommodations were...

Extremely friendly and helpful staff... Jared will have you surfing on the first day. Organized schedule and lots of great activities available. Only comment is that it is a bit pricey relative to the rest of Costa Rica. Looking forward to seeing your own property!

My girlfriend and I booked a surf and yoga retreat with Marieke and couldn't have asked for more. Everything was taken care of and we surfed at least twice a day as well as did as much awesome yoga as we could get in! Our food every day was amazing and the dinners at different restaurants each night were delicious....

I had an amazing time, with my sister and a friend at the beginning of January. Our Lucero trip was exactly what we were looking for! Santa Teresa is a very special place, but Jared and Marieke were what really made our trip great. They took care of us and are super-likable, warm people. Jared is an amazing surf instructor....

“*Something to note is that Costa Rica has a law that no hotels can be within 150 meters (I think that is the number) of the beach.”
