Break out of your vacation routine!
Active vacations, whether full-on adventure tours or more moderately-paced walking tours or yoga retreats, have become the number one choice around the world for how people spend their time off.
The premiere place for active and surfing vacations in Costa Rica, Del Mar Surf Camp offers a week-long
Surf & Detox Retreat that is destined to refresh and invigorate you.
You might think of a rehab center when you hear the word “detox,” but to “detox” is actually a “purifying way to rid your body of unwanted toxins and substances.” So what about looking to eliminate things like fried or processed or fast foods from your diet, or taking a rest from caffeine, sugar and sweets, or alcohol? Or maybe you need to “detox” from stress, work, your computer, the phone, daily obligations and demands, or all of the above! It’s good for us to take time away from our everyday pressures to refresh mentally and physically.
Del Mar Surf Camp’s Surf & Detox Retreat is focused on rejuvenating all of the essential elements of your life with a daily combination of yoga,surfing and nutritious and healthy meals with fresh ingredients.
The goal is to remove you from your regular life at home, challenge you with new and fun activities without the stress, and cleanse and fine tune your body and mind.
The retreat is ideal for both beginner and advanced surfers. You’ll surf every day with locals who have surfed these waves their whole lives, plus you get impromptu Spanish lessons at the same time! Del Mar guarantees no more than 2 students per instructor to ensure quality instruction and maximum wave time.
You can choose from 3 different spectacularly beautiful locations in Costa Rica – a place full of magic beaches and fun waves – at Hermosa Beach on the Central Pacific Coast, Nosara Beach on the northern Pacific Coast of Guanacaste, or Santa Teresa Beach on the Pacific’s Nicoya Peninsula.
Del Mar Surf Camp also offers vacation packages for beginners/intermediate surfers, advanced surfers, women only, families and with many other activities. Costa Rican surfer Maria del Mar founded Del Mar Surf Camp 10 years ago with a tight-knit group of long-time surfing friends. Prior to 2010, they specialized in surf vacations and classes only for women and girls. Then Maria founded Del Mar Surfing Academy to specialize in teaching youth from ages 8 to 18, and the Surf Camp opened up to men. The mother of two girls combines her love of surfing, yoga and active and healthy lifestyle to share her passions in her programs, living her life, as she says, of “dreams come true.”
