The Jersey Boys scored on all fronts. These guys are tough and they can surf. Despite 2+ sessions nearly every day, they managed to work in some time to bring clothing down for the local community, a visit to the Mombacho Zipline and a tour of Colonial Granada. They wanted it all and they got it and more.
Exceeded expectations? Wow. Best surf trip ever? Without a doubt. Coming back? Yes. After experiencing Ventana A Las Olas, how could we go anywhere else?
