The retreats are located at La Marejada Hotel in Playa Grande. This eight-rooms\ boutique hotel is only a short stroll down the sand path to the beautiful white sand beach and surf breaks. All eight of the individually decorated rooms are designed for your comfort. Equipped with pillow top mattresses, soft linens, hot water, WiFi, air conditioning, and ceiling fans. You are ensured to sink into a deep sleep after an active day of surfing and yoga! You can also visit the refreshing pool, relaxing hammocks, or head to the restaurant for that much deserved pina colada!

Playa Grande is one of the most surf breaks in Costa Rica located in the northern province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. It is a marine sanctuary created to protect giant leatherback turtles that lay their eggs along the dunes here. The beautiful white sand beach is four miles long with waves and both directions creating the perfect place to learn to surf (only minutes from the hotel). Everywhere in the town is within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. It really is a very special place with welcoming locals who will make you feel right at home; amazing surf and sunsets that will take your breath away!

    "My friend and I had an incredible time with Sistersurf. It was a last moment R&R trip that Marjie and Coco were kind enough to accommodate. As a compulsive planner I was pleasantly surprised that every detail of our trip was thought through from the airport pick up/drop off to the meals to the daily schedule meticulously planned around the tides and best waves for our level. All we had to do was board the plane and prepare to enjoy ourselves. Coco and Marjie are great teachers who had us standing up on the surfboards on Day 1 - something I had my doubts would happen at all given that our physical ability did not go far beyond splashing in the ocean. Yoga was cleverly weaved into our surfing schedule. Be it restorative afternoon, intense morning or a relaxing sunset session Coco always knew what our bodies needed depending on a day of surfing we had. Marjie's superb massages were a cherry on top of our stay. Another special surprise was a photo session on our last day at which point the combination of excellent instruction and skillful photography actually made us look rather spectacular. The general mood of the village / hotel is wonderfully leisurely and you would be hard pressed to find a reason to change out of your swimsuit. A special thank you to Gail and Marco whose hotel/restaurant were our home base where we feasted on the most delectable menu of whole fried snapper, tuna tartar, tacos and pastas home made by it's Italian owner. The unassuming restaurant is a destination in itself with a ceviche that has been on my mind ever since the last bite (it is rightfully the stuff of local legends). Our days revolved around surfing but Marjie and Coco offered some really cool options for our downtime - we made dream catchers, visited secret tide pools, biked to neighborhood beaches, caught a glimpse of leatherback turtles on a night tour. The retreat was a wonderful combination of intense physical challenges mixed with just the right amount of relaxation. But what made it really special were Marjie and Coco. Besides being excellent teachers they were great company. They kept the mood light and effervescent while patiently motivating us to challenge ourselves. I could not have imagined better people to introduce me to surfing or spend 5 days on the water with. Their thoughtful little touches - shell necklaces, local cocoa sunblock, special morning coffee, sunset drinks, the beautifully edited video of our surfing highlights - made the retreat very special. Thank you, ladies, for giving us this amazing experience! I can’t wait to be back."
