Surfing - From Oktober to July, it’s possible to learn to surf with us or to just rent one of our 20 surfboards (from 5,8 to 9 feet) and go have some fun! We are happy to live directly in front of a point break and a beach break, to give you the opportunity to surf as much as possible during your stay. No matter what your level, the waves are perfect for beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. The best thing about our location is that there are the 15 point breaks that we can reach within less than 15 minutes of driving.
Daily yoga sessions - Imagine practicing yoga or meditation to the sound of the waves, directly in front of the beach. Not even your best dreams could compete with our daily yoga classes for all levels. We are passionate about sharing our yoga practice, so e-mail us if you have the desire to organize a yoga retreat or a teacher training in our little paradise.
Our family meals (breakfast and dinner) - Since it’s opening, The Free Spirit Hostel has built part of its experience on the type of food we consume, and the way we appreciate it. Although we offer fresh fish once a week, all of our dinners are vegetarian. Instead of meat, our team match different flavors, combining spices, fresh local vegetables and original ideas to excite your taste buds in a creative manner. Meat is available at the supermarket in Playas, and you’re welcome to cook it back at the hostel. Dinner is served family style, meaning that guests, staff members and owners get together for dinner to sit together at one big table.
You will surely appreciate our little pueblo for its peace and quietness. Different from the busy nightlife in Montañita or the crowded landmarks of Baños, Puerto Engabao is a remote oasis with only a few bars and other hostels around town, including our own.
Surfing and doing yoga are the main activities but these are not the only activities to do here. Take a walk around town, go for a run on that infinite looking beach at low tide and enjoy a sunset while horseback riding. You may also meet local people in the village, play soccer or volleyball with them at one of the local courts.
Engabao is a powerful and punchy, normal to long right point break. Shortboards and bodyboards are ideal here.. Consistency is year-round, with the best conditions during autumn and winter.
