Originally from New jersey and the Netherlands we are now living in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica together with our two girls Riley and Luka where we run our business Lucero Surf Retreats.
Back in 2005 we met in Bocas Del Torro, after a few years of emailing and visiting each other I (Marieke) decided to go live in Costa Rica and started Lucero Surf Retreats with my high school friend Angel. I was looking for a reason to stay and wanted to share my personal experience and this piece of paradise with others like you! Everything I love i can now share through the all inclusive vacations we offer and I really enjoy the planning and making sure that everyone who comes here is happy & satisfied.
Early 2008 Jared came for a visit and never left. We are now running the business together and are so grateful for this life. Costa Rica taught us to slow down and how to enjoy the simple things in life.
Many of our guests express the same feelings when they experience the 'Pura Vida' lifestyle without worries, and they wonder if they can too, start a new life on a beach somewhere.
