If you need a holiday of chilling on the beach, surfing and yoga, this surf camp will be the perfect choice! Vistamar Guest House offers you the opportunity to catch the best waves for your surf experience and comfort level. Enjoy the view of the ocean and islands from your bed and the views of the jungle from the windows. Come and experience the natural, rustic beauty of Ayampe in complete comfort!
Vistamar boasts ocean views from all the beds, a fully stocked covered outdoor kitchen, an open loft with ocean and jungle views that is outfitted with hammocks and a desk, and lots of furnished balcony space. Vistamar also has a yoga platform.
The itinerary is flexible so that you can shape each vacation experience around what you want! Vistamar Guest House does provide a basic framework that includes surfing (with a guide and/or instructor) in the morning and evening (usually) with yoga either in the middle of the day or in the morning, depending on what you prefer.
However, the Vistamar team can arrange for you to go horseback riding, explore the jungle by foot and/or go snorkeling, and explore hidden coves if you like instead of yoga and surf. It's your vacation, it's your decision!
If you don't want to do any yoga or surf, horseback riding, jungle exploration by foot, and snorkeling are all activities you can switch for.
