Guatemala

A Surf Experience with a Laid Back Spirit and Good Vibes

Enquire

Join Us In Guatemala

When we first visited the little fishing village of El Paredon, we fell in love with the dusty village roads, black sand beaches, and dreamy west-coast sunsets. We’re confident you’ll feel relaxed, welcomed, and surrounded by nothing but good vibes and empty waves in Guatemala.

The Surf

El Paredon is a laid-back surfing oasis with some of the most consistent surf in Guatemala. We love this spot as the swell works on all tides and is perfect for experts, intermediates, or beginners learning to surf. You will be surfing mostly beach breaks and river mouths with some opportunities to surf secret point breaks if the swell is right. Because the beaches in Guatemala face directly south, they pick up just about every swell along the Pacific, so not a day goes by where the waves are not surfable. If you want to wake up steps from empty waves, join us in Guatemala before the crowds arrive.

Included:

  • 6 days of personalized surf coaching
  • Intro to surfing
  • Beach session
  • Surf theory classes
  • Paddle school
  • Video analysis
  • 1:1 feedback
  • Professional surf photos (extra cost)
  • Daily transport to and from the best surf breaks

The Yoga

Whether you’re new to yoga, practice daily, or love meditation, you’ll quickly fall into rhythm with the sound of the waves. In the cozy and rustic A-frame yoga deck is where you’ll reset and find balance in between your surf sessions. Yoga is offered daily by highly experienced teachers who tailor classes to the needs of the group—the perfect compliment to surfing and a way to connect with yourself and feel your best.

The Adventures

Surround yourself in the laid back lifestyle of El Paredon! The lazy beach town isn’t one that many people think to venture to when visiting Guatemala, but it won’t be long until they do. The area itself is part of a National Park—untouched by modern-world standards—and promises lush mangroves, beautiful beaches, and down to earth people. Here are the adventures we will take you on in the sleepy fishing village of El Paredon.

  • Go on a boat cruise through an estuary
  • Take a cooking class with a local family
  • Join us for dinner at a local restaurant
  • Spend an afternoon volunteering at a local NGO!

"I joined Rise Up this year in Guatemala and that has been the highlight of my year so far! I guess what really makes Rise Up exceptional from other surf camps though, is the core people. The owners, Phil and Corina treat their staff and guests well and it shows. The instructors and resort staff are happy to be there and it translates well in the service they provide to the guests. And all the guests always feel welcomed so if you're travelling solo you never really feel awkward or alone. Lastly, the friends I've met (guests and staff alike) throughout the three times I went are amazing people and we all still keep in touch. So yeah, book that trip and join the Rise Up Familia you won't regret it."

GenSolo Traveler

"This is my 2nd but for sure not my last Rise Up Surf experience. After joining Rise Up in Nicaragua in 2018, I decided to stay with them in Guatemala for this year’s adventure. And I loved it! From the moment you step out of the airport everything is taken care of. Corina, Fran and the entire Rise Up team made sure we all had the best time ever. From the top surf coaching by their team as well as local surf instructors, the perfectly matching yoga, the best food, super fun activities (wake surfing, boat trip, SUP, cooking classes) to the accommodation, it was just perfect and my dream surf holiday. Oh, and not to forget about all the awesome new friends from all over the world I made. I definitely recommend you book with Rise Up Surf if you want to surf in a special part of the world with great people and progress your surfing no matter what level you are at right now. But be aware that you might get addicted to staying with Rise Up or fall in love with any of the locations you stay at. It might change your life…"

BeataSolo Traveler

"As always, Rise Up has delivered a fantastic retreat. Every aspect of the week surpassed expectations. The resort was beautiful with such a lavish pool! Jamie outdid herself, as always, providing the most amazing meals, and fresh juices to power us through all of our activities. While the surf was not the easiest for me, the top notch instructors made sure that everyone focused on their surf goals, got better, and had FUN! After all our hard work paddling, our restorative yoga classes were the perfect solution. As an extra activity, we had the opportunity to visit a local NGO, La Choza Chula. We learned about their great work in the community and then had the opportunity to visit a local home for a cooking class, such a great experience! I cannot recommend Rise Up Surf enough, and will continue to go back year after year. In the meantime, I will continue to pour over all the beautiful photos taken by their surf photographer!"

"Rise up is incredibly special. They’ve got the surf and yoga retreat concept completely dialled. Always great people, good vibes and fun surf. Once you get off your plane in Managua, Rise up takes over from there and provides a top notch experience. Can’t say enough good things about this company. They get it....and if you didn’t before, by the time you leave a Rise Up retreat, you get it too."

NicolaSolo Traveler

“The Rise Up Surf Retreat was seriously the best surf camp I have ever been to. The resort is beautiful and the staff is amazing. I enjoyed every single minute of my stay and didn't want to leave at the end of the week. Because of my surf coach, my surf has improved so much during the week like never before. They take your level of surf and goals really serious and always find the right spot and waves for you. I have never felt more comfortable in the water. Not to forget the great yoga and the most amazing food. Rise Up is all about really really good service. I'm still stoked and super grateful for all the experiences I enjoyed with Rise Up! Go and get your space, i'm 100% sure you'll not regret it”

BillySolo Travaler

"I didn’t want to write this review. Because over the last six years, Rise Up was my little secret. So it is with great hesitancy that I say go to Rise Up, it is simply the best surf camp experience you can have. Just try not to go when I’m there, I still kind of want it to myself.”

KevinTraveled with friends

“From the moment they pick you up at the airport till the morning you leave, the staff and ownership are committed to making sure your stay is perfect.The waves and coaches are amazing and the food is delicious. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and overlook a beautiful beach where we surfed each night at sunset. I can’t imagine a more complete surf retreat. Daily yoga overlooking the ocean and mid day relaxation time perfectly balance out the hours of surfing each day. Volcano boarding, horseback riding, and the estuary trip are so much fun. I’m a self taught surfer and I’ve always wanted coaching to take my surf to the next level, so between the high quality surf coaching and the other details, this is any surfers dream vacation. My fiancé and I just booked our return trip!”

Join Us In Costa Rica

When you get to the end of the road where the jungle meets the ocean, that is where you will find your new home and the base for the epic Rise Up On Road surf adventure in Costa Rica.

15 years ago—when we first visited—we fell in love with this remote area of Costa Rica as it was unlike anywhere we’d ever been. We have dreamt about sharing it with others since then and now we finally have the opportunity to take small groups to this magical place.

Watch Video

The Surf

Take in the lush vistas of the rainforest and hear the howler monkey calls while catching the most uncrowded waves in Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity in the world, making it one of the most unique surf spots in Costa Rica. Since the breaks are inside the gulf, the turquoise blue waves are consistently glassy, mellow and perfect for long-boarding. Get ready to surf with more macaws flying around you than people in the line up. This trip is best for beginner and intermediate surfers.

  • 6 days of personalized surf coaching
  • Intro to surfing
  • Beach session
  • Surf theory classes
  • Paddle school
  • Video analysis
  • 1:1 feedback

The Yoga

Whether you’re new to yoga, practice daily, or love meditation, you’ll quickly fall into rhythm overlooking the blue waters where the jungle meets the sea. Nestled in the canopy of a second-story yoga deck is where you’ll reset and find balance in between your surf sessions. Yoga is offered daily by highly experienced teachers who tailor classes to the needs of the group—the perfect compliment to surfing and a way to connect with yourself and feel your best.

The Adventures

Tune into nature where National Geographic describes as “the most biologically intense place on earth.” The Osa Peninsula is itself home to half of all the species in Costa Rica and 2.5% of the world’s total biodiversity, so of course, we’re taking you on some unforgettable adventures.

  • Hike through the tropical rainforest to a local waterfall
  • Horseback ride to a remote region of indigenous communities
  • Go wildlife spotting and bird watching in the pristine rainforest
  • Experience some of the best deep sea fishing in Central America! (extra cost)

The Space

Our eco-friendly retreat in Costa Rica is located on the edge of a virgin rainforest, nestled between the mountains and shore. All sorts of monkeys, toucans and scarlet macaws are seen from the lodge and yoga deck regularly. As the only lodge on the beach, we consider it one of the most remote surf retreats in Costa Rica. To top it off, we are only a two min minute walk to a perfect right hand point break.

"This was the best vacation my husband and I have ever taken. It was relaxing; Rise Up took care of everything from the schedule to the food to the surfboards. It was fun; surfing every day has got to be the best thing you can do for your mental and physical health, and the extra trips like volcano boarding and the boat trip were a really fun time to hang out with everyone on the trip. It was an accomplishment; I came in hoping to learn to catch my own waves for the first time, and my coach, Melky, made sure that happened while still having fun! If you want to visit Central America, learn to surf, and also give back this is the absolute best thing you could do."

Anna S. | February 2020Trip Advisor

"I went to the Women Surf Retreat and meet Kassia Meador as their special guest who also did sound bath healing was the best trip I ever went to. Traveling solo and coming in not knowing what to expect meet my expectations above and beyond. Became friends with the group and now looking forward to our next reunion. Couldn't ask for anything more to be part of this positive and beautiful community. I got too spoiled surfing in the nice, warm water with just a bikini and coming back to Northern California to a wet suit and booties."
