    I initially booked in for one week at S.O.T.W. but extended it to two almost immediately! It was the first time I have ever done a learning vacation, but it will not be the last! From the accommodations to the courses offered to the staff, specially Tanner, Kiersten, Carlos, Christian. To the fellow travelers, it is a near perfect for a learning vacay! I came away better at Spanish and far improved as a surfer! Can't wait for my next visit!

    School of the World is a wonderfully unique concept. It's a beautifully designed place of learning where surfing, Spanish, photography and yoga all coexist. Every day is packed with as much or as little activity as you want and your fellow students are friendly and adventurous spirits from all over the world.

    The whole concept of this school is one of a kind. This was truly a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and very nice. I have taken surfing and yoga, since I am very active person. If you want to meet wonderful people, learn something new and have fun, then this is the place to be. Highly recommend to everyone.

    The founders and staff of School of the World have created such an incredible and unique opportunity for travelers. The vibe cultivated between students was perhaps the most memorable thing. The 18 of us, from ten different countries and spanning a couple of decades in age, felt like one big chilled-out, respectful family the entire time. So cool!
