"Bueatiful trip, brilliant people and the best surf! "
Huanchaco is a bueatiful place, with chilled out vibes and great surf literaly every day! (great for any level of surfer).
The hostal has a very homely, cosy vibe and with an awesome balcony with daily sunset views you'll get to know everyone super quick:).
The whole Urcia family are super lovely and will help you with anything you need:).
They made me feel welcome and we had a laugh.
I stayed for a month, 10 surf and 10 Spanish lessons.
My surfing improved from total newbie and now I feel much more in tune with my board, the waves and a passion to find some new waves! Jorge was a super effective and encouraging teacher:).
I knew 0 Spanish when I arrived, thanks to Manuel's lessons and SO much opportunity to practice with locals/travelers I can now have some basic conversations!!
I loved the food fresh local markets selling the best mangos & avacado I've ever had for super cheap.
My room was also super comfortable with lots of space, hostel was super clean and has everything you need to cook/store boards/ wetsuits and chill out.
Overall I loved my stay thank you so much for having me:). ¡Paz!

"Spectacular experience with Urcia surfschool package "
I just finished the 6 day surf camp with Urcia surfschool and had a fantastic time. The family run, laid back vibe of indiga hostel is amazing - Miriam and John will make you feel like family. The breakfasts are incredible, two courses, beautiful, healthy, totally home made. John is a very good surf teacher, pays close attention to detail, is encouraging, helpful and fun. The Caballito tour was also a really cool experience, giving me authentic insight into the history and daily life of Haunchaco. I can’t recommend this package enough.

Alles war schön sauber und die Küche war super ausgestattet. Ein kleines Hostel, aber dadurch kam eine schöne Atmosphäre auf :)
