    The hostel was very nice and a cool place which you have to reach by car, boat and a short walk. Nothing else around. There were many options for activities, like volleyball, yoga, game night, surfing and so. The food was not the best in...More

    Another place that is hard to get to, certainly, but its remote location is part of its charm. I took a taxi directly to the water's edge (which was very expensive) and then a small boat picks you up and takes you a very short...More

    Their website will have all of that info. They do offer boards and surfing classes. Search Surfing Turtle Lodge on google. It should come right up. I can't post the link due to Trip Advisor Restrictions.
