Surf lessons, a cooking class, horseback rides, beach time—the ultimate all-girl getaway!
Catch some waves and catch up with your friends on this active, fun-filled vacation. Los Cerritos Beach, near the laid-back artists' community of Todos Santos, is one of the world's best places for learning to surf, with gentle waves and a smooth, sandy bottom. In fact, National Geographic named surfing here as one of their top adventures for 2012! Add in lessons from one of the region's most renowned instructors, and you'll be hanging ten in no time. We've put together a fantastic itinerary that includes yoga classes and surf instruction each morning, and a fun activity each afternoon—luxurious massages, sunset rides on the beach, gallery-hopping in Todos Santos—followed by a fabulous meal each evening. There's even a Mexican cooking class (where you'll learn to make the perfect margarita!). Mid-week, you'll spend a day snorkeling and playing with sea lion pups—a truly incredible experience. This ladies-only getaway is ideal for mothers and daughters, sisters, groups of friends, or all of the above—so gather your best girls and strengthen your bonds as you learn new skills together under the Baja sun.
