This is my 4th trip with Rise Up and maybe my favorite. I can't believe that places this beautiful actually exist. Ojo Del Mar where we stayed is so special with some of the best meals I can remember having (all home cooked by lovely people). The surf breaks are breathtaking and surfable on big and small days. The coaching always steps my surf game up by leaps and bounds. The Rise up Familia does such an amazing job bringing strangers together so that they feel like family by the end of the week. Too much beauty to describe in a review....just go join them. (Solo female surfer)

An exceptional trip. The crew is beyond amazing. I’ve never surfed a day in my life coming from inland Georgia. I left with the skill set and tools need to build my new surfing and obsession. You’ll be well taken care of, loads of side adventures, and some yoga to fill in the much needed stretching post surf! Book your trip yesterday. I’ll definitely attend a Rise Up retreat again.

I consider Rise Up a forever family. I had such an amazing life changing trip. My goal was to advance my surfing and I came back with so much more. I didn’t expect the adventures, such AMAZING FRESH ORGANIC FOOD, friendships, and giving back to the Nicaraguan community. When I go to a new country I always want to connect to the community, I don’t want to feel like a disconnected visitor. I highly recommend taking a minute and introducing yourself to their amazing staff to the security to the kitchen, everyone is so lovely and they all have interesting stories and warm hearts. The surfing coaches Melqui & Fran are my buds forever. They are hilarious & made the trip so so fun. I felt so comfortable with everyone and I their feedback & tips on my surfing made a world of difference. Also, even before my trip started I knew I was in good hands with Phil & Corina. I asked probably too many annoying questions within the months before my trip and they were so very communicative and patient with me! My flight was cancelled and they rescheduled and accommodated me. As a solo female I felt like I was visiting a friend because at one point I was in contact with them everyday and they checked in with me before and during my trip. Another reason I chose Rise Up is that they really care about improving the Nicaraguan community. we donated school supplies & drinks to a local school there. The teachers told us that Phil & Corina donated desks, doors, and more to the school. They also train girls to surf & teach a English to give them an opportunity to teach at Rise Up which would open so many doors & opportunities for them. I can’t recommend this resort more. I’m already planning my next trip in the following year. Looking forward to doing Rise Up in Costa Rica & other countries. Thank you millions for everything 💗

This was an amazing retreat where good friends, amazing coaches, cooks, cleaners and hosts took care of each other. We laughed until we cried and surfed until we were water-logged. Thank you RISE UP!!

My week surfing in Guatemala was amazing, I can not wait to go back! As always, Rise Up has delivered a fantastic retreat. Every aspect of the week surpassed expectation. The resort was beautiful with such a lavish pool! Jamie outdid herself, as always, providing the most amazing meals, and fresh juices to power us through all of our activities. While the surf was not the easiest for the days of the retreat, the top notch instructors made sure that everyone focused on their surf goals, got better, and had FUN! After all out hard work paddling, our restorative yoga classes were the perfect solution. As an extra activity, we had the opportunity to visit a local NGO, La Choza Chula. We learned about their great work in the community and then had the opportunity to visit a local home for a cooking class, such a great experience! I cannot recommend Rise Up Surf tours enough, and will continue to go back year after year. In the meatime I will continue to pour over all the beautiful photos taken by their photographer Emy (Salty Sea).
