Handstand & Surf Retreat

FEB 25 – MAR 4, 2018

SANTA TERESA, COSTA RICA

Santa Teresa is a quaint, quiet surf town divided by one long road separating lush jungle from the perfect beaches.  The lifestyle is chill and calm but with a true energetic beat depending on time and place.  The local cuisine is amazing and can accommodate any palette and preference.  The local people are super friendly, fit and happy to meet new friends.

The Funky Monkey Lodge is a fantastic, and always popular, retreat location.  It is tucked away in the jungle and yet all conveniences are easily accessible.

You are able to “Choose your own Adventure” as I wanted to offer as many options as possible so that you can stay within your budget.

I’m so excited to be going back to hang with friends in this perfect paradise!

*Handstand and Stretch classes are taught by Chris Taylor and Surf Lessons are taught by Pura Vida Surfers.
