Surf with Amigas is the place for adventurous women to come together and encourage each other to fulfill their goals. It’s about empowerment, creating connections, learning to attract awesomeness into your life, and living in the moment. You will learn about yourself, and overcome fears. In addition, yoga is very good for your body and mind. After a long morning at the beach, nothing feels better than stretching out your tired paddling muscles in the open air yoga studio. Yoga and surfing are a perfect combination to make the most of your retreat!
You will stay at Casa Marea Alta which is located directly on the ocean and nestled at the bottom of hundreds of acres of pristine rainforest. An ideal place to relax, host a yoga retreat, and vacation with the family.
This retreat will take place in Punta Banco, Costa Rica. The location is nestled in between jungle and ocean along a gorgeous stretch of mostly empty pristine beach. This region in Costa Rica is regarded as one of the most biologically diverse places in the world. Expect to see monkeys, sloths, toucans, scarlet macaws and a variety of other local creatures!
