I was there for 2 weeks and didn't get to choose whether I wanted afternoons or mornings. They choose that for you. The teacher that I had the first week was really patient, spoke clearly and had clear instructions. However the 2nd week with teacher Alex, I wasn't able to understand him as he spoke quickly and too loud. He was less clear and I was generally anxious in that class. If I choose WAYRA next time, it won't be in Tamarindo.

The only downside, the school has mainly Swiss and this information was not well reflected on your site. Being Swiss myself I prefer to mix with other nationalities when I travel and I was unpleasantly surprised because it was part of my search criteria to make my choice of destination and schools on your site. Nevertheless the school was really good so I went over.
