Surf in the sea, sleep in the hammock, no better way to learn Spanish. Pura Vida!!

As a newbie to both surfing and Spanish this was the ideal place to learn both! The surf conditions varied from day to day allowing us the chance to practice on some big and small waves. Having enjoyed the surfing a lot, Jakera helped me get in touch and book more lessons to continue after the surf time in my program had ended. In terms of Spanish; I have been able to pick it up very easily with the family and other locals speaking it to and around me, encouraging me to learn. Would highly recommend.

Amazing Once in a lifetime experience

I can't believe how quickly these weeks have gone here. I came here on my own not knowing anyone and I will leave here having made friends for life. Living here in Santa Teresa in the jungle is absolute paradise and the accommodation is perfect for young people. It's lovely staying somewhere that feels home from home with puppies running around and delicious home-cooking. The surfing week was great fun and loved making signs and bins from reclaimed wood to raise awareness for water safety on the beaches. I will be very sad to leave here and would recommend to anyone who is looking for an amazing experience. I feel very lucky to have been a part of it.
