Costa Rica Surf Trip: Part 1 Planning my girls surf trip to the School of the World, Costa Rica

The winter has me wanting to take a trip to somewhere tropical! Okay, I shouldn’t complain since I live in Orange County where it’s 75 degrees year round, but I’d love to go somewhere remote with black sand beaches, rainforests, and ocean water that you can surf without wearing a wetsuit. Costa Rica was the perfect solution to my checklist, but how do I even begin planning my Costa Rican all girls surf trip? Enter School of the World, a unique combination of boutique hotel, surf camp, language school, photography workshop, and yoga retreat. Since travelers visit here from all over the world, it’d be a great way to meet some new and interesting people as well.

SOTW is ran by my friends Zach McDuffie and Natazha Aiken McDuffie (Natazha is an international model and Zach is the founder School of the World and a learning vacation expert). They both were so passionate about Costa Rica, and provided me with such great tips of places to go and things to do, I knew instantly this was where I wanted to stay. Zach and Natazha are experts on traveling. They run a blog popular blog about learning vacations, The Learning Experience,  and are developing a travel show about the best vacation schools, workshops, retreats, and fantasy camps in the world. Get a glimpse into what it’s all about in the video below…
