The surf camp was one of the best experiences I could have asked for, especially as a solo traveller, I made amazing friends and was mesmerized by all the creatures lurking in the jungle, if you want to have fun and simultaneously feel more connected to nature and yourself, the surf camp is absolutely the place to go ! Also the food was amazing and everyone was super sweet, especially Ollie :)

I had SO MUCH fun at the surf camp! I made a lot of life long friends from all over as well as amazing memories. Staying at the surf camp is kind of like camping, the accommodation is not very nice. But, totally worth is for how cheap/how little work you're doing while you're there. I felt very safe.Yoga teachers were great, food was yummy, and the company was top tier. Lots of volunteers who are fun and friendly. Every day was full of surfing (or trying to haha), sun bathing, yummy food, and lots of laughs. If you're not bothered by a little dirt and a few creepy crawlies..I 100% recommend stay here!

The surf camp is the absolute best, from weekly excursions, daily free shuttles to the beach for surfing, and constant activities around the camp itself to keep life exciting, the surf camp will be the best three weeks you can spend volunteering. The people are great and the atmosphere is exactly what you look for while traveling. Whether you want to have a chill day by the pool during the day or go crazy at night, the surf camp has it all. I worked behind the bar and was able to meet so many great people that I'll never forget, will definitely be back soon!
