What's included?
Learn Spanish & Surf or take Yoga Lessons in Santa Teresa - a jungle surf camp hidden in tropical forest by the Pacific Ocean.
This program starts on the first and third Sunday of each month, so you can ‘settle in’ before the program starts on Monday morning. As well as Spanish lessons and professional surf instruction or yoga instruction, other programmed activities include hiking so you can explore and enjoy the beautiful hinterland of Nicoya Peninsula and get a real feel for the biodiversity of this special part of the world.

Your experience will be based at ‘Jakera Jungle Surf Camp’ where we have created a jungle paradise complete with swimming pool overlooked by a rich tropical forest bursting with wildlife including red squirrels, howler monkeys and tiny magical hummingbirds. We are a 5 min walk from the cool cafes, bars and shops that line the 6km stretch of road and beach that make up Playa Santa Teresa/Playa El Carmen.

This program is quite busy but there is still free time to enjoy a great social life and participate in the many other activities you can enjoy here.

Spanish Lessons:

Each day Monday to Friday there will be 2 x 45 minute Spanish lessons (usually between 09:00-11:00 but subject to change depending surf conditions). Tuition is delivered by accredited and licensed teachers and on day one you will receive a short test to establish your level and objectives. These lessons will be tailored to suit all levels from beginner to intermediate and are designed to help you interact and immerse with the local community and enjoy being in a Spanish speaking country.

Surf and Yoga Lessons:

Each week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday you have a choice of doing a surfing OR yoga lessons.

Surf lessons (approx. 2 hours) are delivered by a local professional surf instructor. As well as showing you the basics - or taking you to the next level - you learn basic safety principles taking into account local issues such as rip tides. A summary of basic water safety principles is included below.

Boards are provided for Surf Lessons. Additional lessons are available on request as well as board rental.

Alternatively, at the times scheduled for surf lessons, you can enjoy professional yoga instruction. For a long time now this magical place has been a destination for yogis from all around the world. What better place to learn or practice yoga than on a wild beach with the sound of waves crashing on the soft white sand, or in our jungle lodge surrounded by lush foliage to the sounds of the river and birds? Many people come here every year to practice and teach yoga so there is a class to for every level from absolute beginner to advanced yogi.

Popular Classes include Yoga for All, Vinyasa Flow, Slow Flow, Ashtanga, Hatha, Deep Restorative, Relaxing & Mediation. You are invited to try a variety of forms of Yoga during your time with us. Each class is 90 minutes (4 classes per week) - a combination of group and private classes depending your needs.

Yoga provides mental balance, body control and it will help you to relax and enjoy every part of your journey in Costa Rica. Enjoy the mantras and discover a new way to relax and be in tune with your body (and nature) by doing yoga and living the pura vida lifestyle.

Hiking:

We would like you to enjoy Nicoya Peninsula - an area of outstanding natural beauty - so each Wednesday we will explore our surroundings on foot. The first is a 2 hour ‘jungle river trek’ along a river that runs by Jakera Jungle Surf Camp and into the lush tropical forest that surrounds us. You will quickly find yourself ‘lost’ and wondering which direction the seemingly nearby beach is.
The second Wednesday we hike from ‘beach to waterfall’ to discover a multitude of waterfalls and rivers that tumble and twist through the rainforest and out into the Pacific Ocean. This hike helps us to understand how the whole eco system works. There is a huge range of flora including trees with specific medicinal applications. We begin to understand the beauty of this truly diverse location.

Jakera Club:

Due to the success of the "Jakera Club" volunteer program and owing to popular demand from local kids, surf instructors and the local community in general, we now host a "Jakera Club" event every Saturday afternoon. Led by our Spanish and Volunteer participants but open to everyone who would like to get involved, we offer a range of fun and educational activities including swimming classes, surf lessons, beach games and conservation activities. This is a fun way to engage with the local community and get your weekend kick started!

Free Time:

During the weekends, there are a lot of opportunuties to expore the area and try out different activities
White water rafting, horse riding, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, whale watching, a jungle canopy tour, there is always something to do and if it all sounds too active, you can just enjoy the beach or pool.

Please note
Travel at the weekend, or any of these extra activities, is at your own expense and risk. We cannot be responsible but, if anything happens, we will of course be there to assist.
Please ensure that you have adequate medical insurance before you carry out any activity.
