Don't go if you: Hate bugs, are grossed out by compost toilets, don't like the ocean, don't want to surf every day, don't like to eat healthy food every day, don't want to make friends with cool women. Do go if you: Love to have fun, want to make friends with amazing women, love the ocean, love eco-friendly compost toilets...

People say I literally glow when I tell them about my trip and I have to agree. It was a truly amazing week and I can't wait to try another location or even return to the N. Nico locale. I was supposed to go with some friends but they couldn't go so I went by myself - best decision ever....

Amazing week in Nicaragua learning how to surf! The trip had it all: great instructors, fabulous food, a really fun group of women, and a very chill environment. The best part was receiving feedback from the instructors on what I was doing well and where I needed to improve. I am already booking my next adventure with these Amigas!

I was looking for a getaway and no friends could travel at the moment so this was the best idea! I did surf as well and they got me to stand up which means anyone can! I can't wait to try the other locations out just to explore and be in a group setting for safety reasons.

Anyone considering a Surf with Amigas retreat .. DO IT!! I can't believe it has almost been a month since my epic trip to El Salvador, I'm still basking in the amazingness of that experience.

Can't say enough, the waves at Sanzal point , La Liebertad , El Salvador, were beyond epic but with the support of each other (surfing women are not like any other women) and the instructors and their fearless leader Holly, I came to surf bigger waves and boy did I, be careful what you ask for.

If you really want to improve your skills as a surfer, you should go on a Surf with Amigas adventure! Before this trip, I was paddling around on a board, clueless, without confidence. The Surf with Amigas instructors (Jackie, Michelle, Amira!) are life-long surfers and really good teachers. I caught a few green waves and finally felt more confident in...

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

“eco-lodging: minimal lighting & water pressure, composting toilets. Larger cabana (with largest porch): 3 beds instead of 2; that's where I stayed. Fans add noise. Camped 2 nights in elevated yoga studio with cooler breeze, especially early morning--a pleasant change.”

“You will fall asleep listening to the ocean's rolling waves. The closer you are to the ocean the louder the waves.”
