Nice beach. Nice waves. However We booked the lesson online for my family of four “in English”. This was done weeks before the lesson. This is not what we got. The lady who checked us in was very pleasant and did speak English with us. What was rather uncomfortable was that the instructor (in Spanish) basically confronted my somewhat-Spanish-speaking wife in front of the group of 15 or so Spanish-speaking adults taking the group lesson with us. He stated he he spoke English well but my wife should nevertheless be the one to translate his Spanish instructions for our family instead of “making everybody else suffer through” both Spanish and English instruction as this would take “twice as long“. The wetsuit that they gave me also repeatedly came undone at the back but was sealed at the ankles so I was slogging around another 10 pounds of water during the lesson. We had fun and eventually the instructor did provide a smattering of English instruction.
