In the Know: Surfing in San Juan del Sur

In the Know: Surfing in San Juan del Sur

We picked San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua for its tranquility, beauty and – of course – the waves on its many renown surf beaches. Gearing up for our Yoga + Surf retreat in November, we thought we’d go straight to the source on what it’s like in this outdoor adventuresome locale. We asked Alex - our surfing partner and founder of Alvarez custom boards – what our retreat goers can expect. Here’s what he said.

One of the tenants of a Traverse Journeys trip is local partnerships. We make every effort to keep our spending in the community because we see it as a cornerstone of making travel sustainable. We are absolutely thrilled to have found Alex’s Surf Shop in San Juan del Sur, and can’t wait for his team to lead our surfing at our Nicaragua Yoga & Surf retreat this fall. We interviewed the founder, Alex, for deeper insight. Read on to learn more about the integral part his work plays in this colorful, lively beach town!

In an earlier post we introduced Barrio Planta Project, our community partner on the Yoga + Surf Nicaragua trip. We had a chance to talk to the founder, Dyani Makous, for a in-depth look at the project and we're so excited to volunteer with them!

When we look for a community partner, there are a few things we know. They need to be part of the local community serving current needs. We want a partner that is cultivating growth in people or the planet (or both!). Barrio Planta Project, a supplementary education program serving kids in the San Juan del Sur community, was our perfect fit for November’s Yoga & Surf trip in Nicaraga
