This is a week you will never forget, the surf instructors are talented, warm and super fun. The yoga was wonderful, the food was amazing, the days were packed full of different adventures or you could just laze about in your hammock.

I went on this retreat by myself, and I left with 16 friends for life. The waves in Northern Nicaragua are just perfect. Lots of surfing time! But lots of relaxing yoga and pool/lounging time as well. The meals were all fresh and tasty - FOUR meals a day! Despite this, I lost 3 pounds on this vacation. Overall, this...

I just returned from one of my favorite trips ever- learn to surf or perfect your skills with the amazing instructors here- they are patient and persistent and help you every step of the way, so it is unintimidating. Plus, they videotape every wave you catch so you can really see what you are doing right or wrong to improve....

An amazing retreat to learn how to surf and to experience all that northern Nicaragua has to offer from beautiful beaches to volcano boarding. If you are considering a surf retreat, I highly recommend this one. Great conditions and coaching translated into an incredibly fun learning environment.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surf With Amigas is Nicaragua's only women's surf and yoga retreat where women can come together as group of amigas and learn to surf or improve their surfing under the guidance of a professional surfer, namely Holly Beck. Holly was on the world tour for years until deciding a few years ago that she wanted to settle down in Nicaragua and share the surf stoke with other amigas. Along with her amazing staff and awesome beachfront resort in northern Nicaragua, Holly has created a unique experience that many women have called the best of their lives. What sets Surf With Amigas apart from other women's surf retreats you might encounter? 1) Holly's surf-coaching, both in the water and with daily video-captured sessions and slow motion analysis of all your waves; 2)the uncrowded waves of northern Nicaragua- we have spots to ourselves unlike southern Nica; 3) our beachfront resort is awesome! Come find out for yourself! ... more   less
