"What an amazing experience!"

The instructors and teachers were the best part, Julia and Chloe are super motivating, have great humor, are very responsible yet flexible to everyones needs and truly inspiring human beings. Our hosts (and their pets) and the accomodation were also very very good. Los Clavos Surf camp and the beaches that surround it are heavenly. Thank ya'll so much!

"Sunset, Surf & Savasana "

Removed from the hustle & bustle of city life, the Los Clavos Camp is secluded and practically off-grid. The activities were well thought out and scheduled so as not to overlap with any conflicting interests, so we were busy from sunrise to sunset with plenty of hammock time in between adventures. The food was well-rounded, the hospitality was on-point and we were welcomed with open arms right into the fold.

Excellent endroit, dès notre arrivé à l’aeroport quelqu’un est venu nous chercher. Ambiance et activité excellente. Recommande fortement seul ou en groupe

Autant l'emplacement, que les activités et le staff sont partie intégrante de l'expérience qui est incroyable. J'y retournerais et surtout je ne serais jamais partie. J'ai eu la chance d'avoir Haley comme professeur, elle est dévoué et à l'écoute.

An unspoiled beauty of virgin Pacific coast beaches the perfect setting for a surf camp retreat where you can unwind to the timeless soundtrack of crashing waves well away from all the tourists. Romain and Claire are the warmest hosts and an inspiration for leaving their city lives to live and share their dreams.

I have been practising yoga for over ten years but was forced to take a break due to a knee injury three years ago. My time with Julia was, in part, a celebration of my renewed practice. Julia encouraged and motivated me to push beyond my perceived limitations, building on my existing practice and expanding my awareness of my body. She guided us through Ashtanga Led Class, Vinyasa Flow and Myofacia Release while we were together. She is patient and a very very good teacher who I would love to practice with again given the opportunity.

Firstly, I would like to say how grateful I am for the constant inspiration and guidance, that I find in my lovely teacher Julia. We first met during my 200hrs and 300hrs Yoga Teacher Training Course in Goa, India with Julia as the Lead Teacher. I felt so at home, that afterwards I stayed with her for another 3 months as a student/karma yogi. This year I was fortunate enough, to reunite with Julia in Nicaragua for a week of Ashtanga and Myofascial Release. Her understanding of western anatomy and the way she relates this knowledge to the eastern philosophy, create a unique experience and is apparent in every class she teaches.

My sister and I spent a week at a Yoga Retreat in Nicaragua with Julia Gavin. Julia is fantastic! We had 2 hours of energising Ashtanga Yoga practice each morning and then more of a workshop opportunity in the afternoon. All of it was wonderful. Julia is a true professional. She worked through all the poses with us in class in the morning and had more one on one training on particular body parts that each of us was interested in during the afternoon practice. She has the movements of a dancer and a lot of knowledge about the history and philosophy of yoga. It was exerting but at the same time relaxing and restorative. I especially loved the 15 minutes we spent on the beach in meditation. She also has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun. If I have the opportunity, I would love to take more classes with Julia.

A great surf camp! Best spot ever in central America if you love good food, beautiful beaches, and kind people. A nice place to stay, very central to test all the beaches around, if you go to Nicaragua I suggest you choose Los Clavos.
