    Surf/Yoga House at the beach.

    We are a group of 3 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 and right at the heart of Huanchaco with many outdoors common areas.

    The area for the customers is on the first floor. On the second floor we are offering some private rooms and shared rooms for rental. In the back garden we have several rooms for the volunteers. If you are interested in surfing, yoga, healthy food or just love the beach you will love the view that you can observe from our terrace to check the best waves or just enjoy one of Peru best sunsets.
    You can improve your spanish here since most of our fixed team are Peruvians or South Americans, 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' and vegetarian food, eat healthy, yoga and surf.
    At mornings and noons we have also a High Performance Surf School. Our partner in this project is one of the best surf coaches in the all the region with a lot of national and 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 host greats concerts with local and foreign bands.
    You can Also teach Yoga and make money for yourself while you are with us. Many customers ask for yoga/pilates or other spiritual practices. So you have a great change to teach classes.
