What we're about

The Authentic Travel Group brings together a diverse group of people who all share in common the belief that travel should not only enrich our own lives, but the lives of those in the countries we visit. We believe that the most rewarding kind of travel is experiential travel. Our group meets regularly to showcase upcoming custom tours that combine photography, painting, culinary arts, yoga, and cultural opportunities.

El Salvador Surf & Yoga Camp

Los Mangos Hotel, El Salvador

$2,495.00

https://www.finisterra.ca/product/el-salvador-surf-women/

Join the Surf Sisters on an epic surfing adventure to El Salvador! Surf Sister Surf School is offering an 8 Day adventure abroad to Central America’s best-hidden gem, El Salvador. Steamy rainforest, smoking hot volcanoes, and stunning reef-fringed shorelines, El Salvador, is a god-given playground for the adventurous. El Salvador is now becoming a firm fixture on the international surf scene. Reliable waves peel elegantly along its 300km Pacific shoreline, and unlike the busy breaks of nearby Costa Rica, the water stays a swimsuit-friendly 25–30°C year-round. El Salvador is a great combination of volcanic landscapes, pre-Colombian cultures, and virtually empty black sandy beaches.

This surf focused itinerary is sure to get you stoked on surfing and give you the skills and confidence you need to get into the water on your own. Each day will be complemented by daily yoga practice, stretching sessions, and camaraderie.
