This was one of the greatest trips for so many reasons! First of all, surfing everyday with an awesome group of girls from all over the country and being coached by outgoing, top notch,professional coaches was incredible. Holly, Jackie and Jamie really cared about every single one of us in the water (as well as out) and we all improved significantly during the week.The water is warm, the beaches beautiful and the break, both lefts and rights, is right at your doorstep!
There were so many great activities planned...yoga everyday with amazing Nikki, running horses on the beach-yea, okay, I barely galloped..but other horses RAN, volcano boarding-I proved you could go SLOW, building a school, learning to make chocolate and tortillas-mine were square-ish from scratch, relaxing...you name it, this trip had it!
El Coco Loco is a hidden gem tucked in the north of this beautiful country. The accommodations were simple, clean and comfortable and everyone from the owners to their staff were a big part of what makes this place so special...did I also mention it was beautiful??? The food was delicious and healthy, with second breakfast being my favorite time of day! Yes, TWO breakfasts!
If you are in doubt about a trip like this, DON'T be! This is the perfect atmosphere for anyone who is would like to learn to surf great waves, meet new people in an amazing place, embark on some adventures, eat great food and just have a fantastic time. GO!!!!
