We'll get to know each other through a quick shake out workout and dip in ocean! Dinner is served at 8:30pm, dancing is rampant, and the lights go low once the disco balls come out. Where this night takes you is your story, but this is just day 1.
FULL SYB SURF DAY
Get ready to experience SYB to it's fullest. We begin with wake up calls (more on this later), go straight into morning workouts, beach games, yoga cool down, a dip in the ocean to refresh...and a hearty breakfast, all before it's even 9am.
Next is our first day out on the water - surf lessons! We will break off into smaller groups depending on where we are at. All levels are welcome and we promise beginners, we will have you up on a board by the end of your first session.
After the session, grab lunch, enjoy a cold beer laughing with friends. A little beachy sunset yoga to ground ourselves after a busy day before heading into our first night of festivities, themed festivities.
KEEP IT LOCAL
Sleep in friends, we know last night was crazy, so we'll start the day at 8:30am. After breakfast, we depart on an incredible adventure to explore our Puerto Escondidos local cuisine for a food and mezcal tour.
You'll have free time to explore the town and grab dinner and we'll meet at a bar together before heading home!
MEZCAL & SALSA
By now, you'll get the hang of waking up with boom box music and workouts. After a few hours of chill by the beach, we'll meet later in the afternoon back at our place for a Oaxacan cooking class, tequila tasting, and sexy salsa dancing lessons with a real pro!
SURF DAY, EXPEDITION NIGHT
Morning bootcamp, breakfast, surf, and now that we got the good stuff all done early, we’ve got loads of free time in the afternoon to wander into town and grab some traditional Mexican cuisine. What's better than a few tacos and micheladas, midday?
As the sun lowers, we head out for our evening excursion. We will arrive at the Laguna de Manialtepec as night falls for a spectacular kayak tour through the bioluminescent lagoon. The darker the night, the brighter the water. As a community, we are all about balance and we know this will be a memorable and special group moment.
Dinner and drinks will be in home with our last big party to send it off!
BACK TO REALITY
No early morning wake ups and workouts. Instead, cruise down to the beach for an iced coffee and breakfast before checking out at 10am and be taking the SYB bus to the airport.. You can leave luggage at our hotel if you have a later flight, but then you'll need to find your own ride to the airport.
Until next time... or until we throw our next party because this friendship just started!
CHECK OUT WHAT'S INCLUDED
Welcome to the Vortex ✌🏼 #SurfYogaBeer #SYBMexico
'Thanks for the memories, tacos and soreness in muscle groups I never knew existed. Love you Surf Yoga Beer + love you Sayulita'
'Seriously though... can we go back now?'
'My fitness adventure with Surf Yoga Beer was nothing like I've done before, I met some of the most amazing like minded people and pushed my body beyond what I thought was possible. Everyday we were challenged with 3-4 or more workouts. It was just what I needed coming out of finals. Overall, my experience with SYB was truly amazing and inspires me to keep moving/fighting to keep pushing myself forward'
'Surf's up. PS life is better with your own personal photog'
'Not just peaking in taco consumption'
Cuando no esperamos nada, recibimos todo! - Cheers to the friends, moments and memories made at the @surfyogabeer Sayulita retreat. You all have a special place in my heart. - It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later Sayulita ! - #surfyogabeer #sybsayulita #sybmexico
On the surface, these pictures merely look like a good time. But what you don’t see is that what started out as a timid tiptoe around each other soon gave way to a sense of urgency to dive into one another with what little time we had left. To see each other, and to be seen. Do you know what it feels like to be seen? It feels like you’ve just fallen in love with 30 people at the same time. It feels like being spoken to with only their eyes and letting them pierce your soul. It feels like walking down an aisle of strangers with your eyes closed who are whispering the goodness they see in you in both ears so loudly that all you can do is receive it and know that this is what it feels like to be seen. To all the souls I met this week: who lifted me, filled me, inspired me, engaged me, challenged me, pushed me, made me laugh, brought me joy, held me when I cried. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Your truth, grace, beauty, grit, and raw power is a gift for which I will never have sufficient words.

Can You Handle It?
Money in Mexico
Puerto Escondido is a charming coastal town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, famed for its stunning beaches, world-class surfing, and vibrant nightlife.
Known as the "Hidden Port," Puerto Escondido sits on Mexico's Pacific coast and is divided into several districts, each with its distinct character.
Playa Zicatela is the town's most famous area and is globally renowned as a premier surfing destination. It is particularly known for the Mexican Pipeline, a massive wave that draws in expert surfers from around the world. Playa Zicatela is also dotted with lively restaurants, bars, and clubs, creating an energetic nightlife scene.
We'll be just 15 minutes south of Playa Zicatela, in a region called Laguna Encantada.
We recommend flying into Mexico City for our Gala which is the weekend before on October 21. The reason is because flights from Mexico City to Puerto Escondido are very easy and abundant and most of all cheap!
If you're coming in from outside the US, please try to fly into Puerto Escondido by 2pm. That is when our shuttle will make rounds, find everyone thats arrived and take them to our sexy villas.
We've got the perfect villas for our group. We are about 15 minutes away from the bustling town of Escondido leaving the beach in front of our property secluded. This property has long lap pool for all the swimmers, a big area for our dinners and a rooftop where we'll throw our themed parties.
We will have a shuttle for airport pick ups and drop offs, and excursions into town also. We can even help arrange your private transfers with our trusted partners if needed.
In other words, we got you!
Every day we'll clean up after you...so feel free to enjoy yourself while on vacation!
We've got a chef and a bartender to cater just to us in our villas! Enjoy all the beverages you want at home for free! Specifically we will provide all breakfasts and all but two dinners for the trip, but a few lunches won't be as we'll be exploring the town and local areas. So these days, it's up to what you're craving!
Alcohol is not included at restaurants outside the hotel, but impress your new friends and get bottle service for all!!
Zicatela is know as the Pipeline of Mexico, this means there are sometimes huge waves that are only suitable for professionals. Lucky you there are plenty of beaches, and we'll be going to the beginner ones! We will provide two or three surf lessons for you to ride your first wave, or if you're a pro, perfect your form! With world-famous waves, you'll be eager to dip your toes in the water daily!
This experience is included in trip fees.
After a late night, you may not want to wake up and join us for a workout, but we highly suggest it! Included in your trip, the boot camps and yoga sessions keep us energized - there is nothing better than waking up and sweating with your new friends! Our world-class trip leaders know how to start your day the best way, with a good workout to prime us for a day of adventuring.
This experience is included in trip fees.
No need to whip out your phone or camera at any point throughout this trip because we have got you covered. We will have a professional photographer and videographer joining us on this trip to capture every moment. These will be the best travel photos and videos you will ever get - you're friends better be ready for a photo dump out of their wildest dreams!!
This experience is included in trip fees.
We highly recommend you get travel and/or medical insurance.
We'll be doing some adventures throughout this trip that require a bit of self-awareness of the surrounding area. Remember, this is the jungle.
Dehydration is a common cause of feeling unwell. We require everyone to bring their own refillable water bottle and drink lots of water.
Avoid drinking too much alcohol. Of course, you will want to enjoy a few beers and try some of the local rum around the first night. However, don't make yourself a liability. Nobody wants to have to look after a drunk person. Tropical hangovers are a nightmare, and you don't want to miss out on daily activities if you are trying to recover from the night before!
Your skin will burn easily in the tropics, and especially ya'll winter hibernating New Yorkers. So get the proper gear and protection!
Puerto Escondido is one of the safest regions to visit in Latin America. However, there are risks of petty crime and pickpockets - we suggest not carrying all your valuables with you.
Our accommodations will have safes for us to leave our valuables in, and we suggest leaving all important items in the safe while we are out exploring - but maybe keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home!
DO NOT FLUSH ANY PRODUCTS, INCLUDING PAPER, DOWN THE TOILETS
This is a third-world country, and the sewage is not the same as in the US. There are waste baskets next to the bathrooms. Please use those.
This is a tropical beach adventure, not a yoga retreat or luxury travel experience. But our property is very beautiful with very comfortable and clean rooms. Of course, as we're in the middle of the jungle, you'll have to watch for bugs and spiders. But, as long as you keep the doors shut, you should be good.
You can expect morning workouts, sunset yoga, beach run-throughs, and fitness games almost every day. We'll be pairing that with big group dinners, nights out in the town, and lots of dancing! But, of course, you can always take it at your own pace, skip workouts or adventures and stay back at the house.
We believe you can easily handle this adventure if you have an open mind and a sense of adventure!
The Peso is Mexico's currency. However, most establishments accept USD.
We suggest bringing about $300 to $400 to use at bars and a few of our dinners, but otherwise, we've got you covered! For reference, prices of alcoholic drinks range from $6 - $12 USD.
Puerto Escondido has a few ATMs, and most establishments will charge a 5-6% extra charge for car payments, so remember to withdraw your cash in your home country!
