Yoga + Surf + Seva Beach Retreat

About This Event

Escape to Central America for a wild adventure for the soul. 

On this 5-day co-ed oceanside soul vacation we’ll journey to La Costa del Bálsamo for cultural experiences, local flavors and undiscovered beauty. A Condé Nast “best kept secret,” this unspoiled El Salvadorian coastline takes its name from the aromatic oil of the balsam tree. Enveloped by friendly faces and an abundance of natural life, this waterfront yoga, surf and seva retreat experience is the perfect setting for exploration, relaxation and stargazing.

Your all-inclusive retreat package: Nightly accommodations at our waterfront resort where the freshwater Rio Grande meets the to the ocean, local coffee, breakfast, dinner, 1 fresh coconut water each day, bottled drinking water, 1 surf lesson and board rental rental, salsa dance class, all planned programming, all-levels yoga and Enneagram classes by Mandy & Shari, yoga mats and props, and roundtrip door-to-door airport transportation, and local cultural ambassador.

Optional items are marked on the schedule with a (*) and you’ll be responsible for massage appointments, alcohol, and lunches on your own. We leave lunch as open time for people to explore town (5 minute walk) and sample local flavors, visit a healthy cafe or dine oceanside. Optional activities such as additional surf lessons or board rentals, a waterfall hike adventure trip, a visit to a coffee farm, and massages are available a-la-carte.  Retreat center staff tips are always at your discretion based on your personal experience.


El Tunco is known for its world-class waves and bustling surf community. You'll feel at ease whether you hang ten or don't yet have your sea legs. Our skilled instructors will be with you every step of the way to safely guide you on the water with step-by-step instruction. These exceptional local surf instructors are a blast to be with in the water. You’ll remember their smiles, energy and great attitudes.

Experienced surfers will find some of the best surfing in El Salvador. February is one of the best months to visit at the dry season when temperatures are high but south and southwest swells start arriving.

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings.” ―Elizabeth Gilbert

Mandy and Shari are beautiful, authentic, and open hearted souls who create a loving and safe space for retreat participants to know themselves and love themselves more fully. It’s a beautiful thing. I’m going home with answers I didn’t realize I had questions to. I’m so grateful. Johanna N., 2018 Retreat Participant
