PREPARING FOR YOUR TRIP
WHAT SHOULD I PACK/BRING ON THE TRIP?
Lots of sunscreen, mosquito repellant, swimsuits (snug so they stay on in the waves), a beach blanket or sarong, comfortable yoga clothes, beach attire, a camera (optional: we love pictures and we will take a lot!), cash and credit card, donation item depending on the community service project.
WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE?
Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico: Due to the central Pacific position of Sayulita, this subtropical region has two seasons: dry, warm winters and hot, semi-humid summers. With the exception of a few rainy days, Sayulita is a warm, sunny place.
Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica: Puerto Viejo is set on the south Caribbean of Costa Rica and, with its lush tropical climate receives rain, however it also receives lots of sunshine-y days. It is actually one of the driest places in Costa Rica with September and October being the driest months. The good thing about this magical place where jungle meets beach is that rain typically falls at night or in the early morning.
DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN SURFBOARD AND/OR YOGA MAT?
It is not necessary to bring your yoga mat as these are provided with your class, although you are welcome to if you so desire. If you have your own surfboard back home and want to bring it, feel free. Surfboards are your babies! We do, however, provide an array of surfboards to choose from as well. If you do decide to bring your own, make sure to check the cost and baggage requirements specified by your airline prior to your flight.
SHOULD I PURCHASE TRAVEL INSURANCE?
Travel insurance is not required, though it is strongly recommended. We've traveled a lot and know that things happen, plans change, and it's always best to be covered in case of an accident.
