  • Description


    Surf House at the beach.

    We are a group of 2 partners running this project in the village of Huanchaco, in northern Peru. This little beach town has a very relaxed and quiet life. We have tourists and fun activities on the beach all the year, like world surf championship, and a lot of national contests also.
    Our place is a beautiful big house with an amazing beach view.

    The area for the customers is on the first floor. On the second floor we are offering shared rooms for the volunteers. If you are interested in surfing or just love the beach you will love the view that’s just on the surf point to check the best waves or just enjoy one of the world’s best sunsets.
    You can improve your spanish here, we can help with it, and since you will be engaged with the customers and friends you will have a daily practice of the language.

    Our concept: sell 'natural Peruvian herbal drinks' (with healthy properties) mix with Pisco (the traditional drink of Southern Peru) or Rum (from the Northern parts of Peru).
    At mornings and noons we have also a High Performance Surf School. Our partner in this project is one of the best surf coachs in the all the region with a lot of international championships.

    Our goal is to be different and offer our customers a nice atmosphere where they can hang out during the day and enjoy the surf lessons; or have fun at night with diferent activities (like our famous Salsa Thursdays!).
    We also have a nice stage to host greats concerts with local and foreign musicians.
