Sun, surf, and sand in Sayulita. And also a whole bunch of stuff that does not start with the the letter S, such as bottomless beers (AYCD, but keep your shorts on), yoga on the beach and boxing boot camps, but we had this whole S thing going.T
he Surf Yoga Beer people, the folks who run these getaways where you do much more than lay around on the beach (though you are exactly right on the beach—for five nights—in this case), tell us they’ve got a private room for you and a friend. Must be a pretty good friend for you to share all this goodness. “Don’t retreat, Revive,” they say (they again being the SYB folks). “Si,” we say.
So the winner jets to Sayulita Mexico with that lucky friend with $300 in fresh Howler Bros. gear for the trip. The SYB experience includes those five nights in a private room on the damn beach, surf and standup paddleboard lessons, a catamaran and snorkeling excursion at Las Marietas Islands, hikes, tours, fitness and boxing boot camps, and oh yeah, yoga and beer.
Surf check is basically waking up and looking out the window. There’s more stuff. And we swear we are not making this up because SYB is thorough like this, you’ve also got a personal photographer and videographer to make sure you don’t have to worry about capturing your own gram-worthy shots and can concentrate on the not retreating but reviving thing.
Nobody likes being salty, so there are two nice heated pools for you to hang out in with all your new fitness and surf buddies. A drink package is also part of the deal so that you can have a cold one (or two or three) at sunset.

We want to make it clear that this isn’t some yoga weekend but a beach adventure in the middle of the jungle with some friends, some cervezas, and the occasional exercise (you can choose from beach boot camps, yoga sessions, runs, swimming, and boxing and more boxing).
