Vistamar boasts ocean views from all the beds, a fully stocked covered outdoor kitchen, an open loft with ocean and jungle views that is outfitted with hammocks and a desk, and lots of furnished balcony space. Vistamar also has a movable wooden platform with a roof that can be set up on the lawn for yoga or any other purpose your retreat calls for.


If you are looking for a vacation that is tailored exactly to your desires from private surf lessons and surf trips to local breaks, to small personalized yoga classes at the hour of your choosing, to personalized dinning options, to the option of going on a dozen tour options if you want a break from the waves, this surf camp will be the perfect choice.

These trips are completely customizable to your desire! That means, the time you surf, do yoga and go on excursions, it all depends on you. That being said, the Vistamar team will provide you with a suggested itinerary (so that you don't have to decide anything if you don't want to!) based on your skill levels as a surfer, tides, and weather conditions. However, this itinerary will be flexible so that you can shape each vacation experience around what you want!

The basic framework includes surfing (with a guide and/or instructor) in the morning and evening (usually) with yoga either in the middle of the day or in the morning, depending on what you prefer. You also can go horseback riding, bike riding, explore the jungle by foot and/or go snorkeling and explore hidden coves if you like. It's your vacation!

Why choosing Vistamar Guest House for your vacation?

  • Personalization and attention to detail
  • Private, small groups
  • Super flexibility

During all Vistamar programs, all yoga classes are small and private. Also, surf classes hold a maximum of three people per instructor.

Additionally, the team will give you the option to choose time the meals will be served (and what is served), what time yoga is, what type/style of yoga is practiced, what time the surf classes are, what type of break is desired (this means we are happy to go on a mission in the Vistamar pick up truck), and the option of trading out a surf class for a guided hike, snorkel, etc. Everything in this vacation will be designed to suit your needs.

The following activities are available for no extra cost

  • Horseback riding
  • Bike riding
