Scheduled for October 19th to 25th, the YOLO SUP Experience will make the most of the ample waves of Costa Rica’s Green Season while offering guests an authentic Jaco adventure
Jaco, Costa Rica. (August 27, 2013) – Revel in the lush beauty and fantastic waves of Costa Rica’s Green Season during Vista Guapa Surf Camp’s YOLO SUP Experience set for October 19th to 25th in beautiful Jaco on the Pacific Coast. The YOLO SUP Experience offers an all-around SUP-based adventure where guests enjoy daily surf or flat-water paddling sessions, fitness training, sightseeing excursions, homemade cuisine and much more. Co-sponsored by YOLO Board, the camp offers an intimate experience of the Pura Vida lifestyle with participation limited to 12 guests and features local instructors who provide an authentic insider’s experience.
A typical day at the YOLO SUP Experience begins with a morning SUP surf session followed by a delicious home-cooked breakfast at camp, down time to relax by the pool or enjoy an outdoor yoga session overlooking the Pacific Ocean, lunch before an afternoon paddle or fun-filled excursion and then dinner in town at one of Jaco’s many beloved eateries. Vista Guapa co-owner Alvaro Solano, a seven-time national surfing champion and one-time masters champion, leads all surf and SUP training along with a small roster of experienced instructors and guides.
“The Vista Guapa Surf Camp was one of the best experiences I have had in the past ten years,” said Eric E, a guest of the camp in July 2013 via a review on TripAdvisor.com. “The bungalows are situated on the hillside with beautiful views of the water and I spent countless hours in the hammock on my porch reading. Every morning Wendy made an amazing breakfast for me and the surfing was awesome. I was a first-time surfer and Alvaro was extremely patient with me. Also there is a nice pool to relax in after you surf. In the evenings one of the staff took us to a local restaurant with good food and drink. Alvaro even took me to a beautiful bay to paddleboard for another great time. I was definitely treated like extended family.”
The YOLO SUP Experience is appropriate for all skill and experience levels as instruction will be tailored to the individual and his or her personal fitness goals. Vista Guapa is located on a tranquil five acre tropical oasis with three air-conditioned guest bungalows, each featuring two rooms with private bathrooms and decks with hammocks and views of the Pacific, a main house for group gatherings, a swimming pool and two open air Yoga pavilions. YOLO SUP Experience campers will also receive a Custom Rash Guard, Vista Guapa shirt and other branded goodies.
“The YOLO SUP Experience is designed to allow guests to truly unplug and escape from the daily grind,” said Mark Salvetti, Vista Guapa camp leader and longtime waterman. “The Vista Guapa staff pays close attention to each visitor’s wishes and desires to create a truly customized vacation that will inspire you for days and even years to come. October is a special time to experience Costa Rica and the YOLO SUP Experience will be a life-changing adventure.”
