You will sleep in a shared, or if you prefer (and book in advance) in your private room in the Hotel Don Mario, only 30 minutes from the main surf spot in Matanzas. The cosy, clean hotel offers shared, single, double or twin, triple, and quadruple rooms with a private bathroom. There is a large, welcoming chill area with fireplace, a bar, and breakfast room for its guests. There is free Wi-Fi in your hotel.


In the morning, you get picked up at your hotel from Merluza Surf's surf guide. They drive you and your group to the best spot in Matanzas and the region. Depending on the conditions, it is a five-minute walk on the beach or up to 45-minutes drives by 4x4 off-roader to the surfing spot. Your local surf guide shows and explains you the spot than surfs with you the session.

On four days of the week, it is a half-day surf guiding with one session, on two days of the booked week, there is a full-day surf guiding with two sessions. After the surfing, Merluza Surf drives you back to your hotel in Matanzas. You can go for a nice meal in one of the restaurants, relax, or head for one of the after-surf activities such as horse riding, yoga, massage, sea-angling, kite or windsurfing, or for a stand-up paddle boarding tour.


Pipo knows the waves of Central Chile like the back of his hand. He will show you the best spots and surf in the mornings. He will also show you where to find culinary goodies, which he knows as much as he does about the region’s best waves.
Martin Engel
Martin co-owns Merluza Surf, a small surfing company, with Joy Spearing. After many trips around the world, searching for the best waves, they have found our perfect place to live. Since they are a small family, they have decided to live all year round in Chile. Martin wants to show surfers the good waves of Chile and offers the possibility to explore the coastline with their fully equipped camper vans.
Felipe is a passionate surfer who knows and will show you the best waves in the region. With his strong expressive surfing style and kindness, he'll provide the best support in the water. He is not only a surfer / surfing instructor, but also a yoga master.


The camp will take place in Matanzas, VI region of Chile.
