It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy when our guests have a good time. Check out what our 2018 and 2019 crew thought of it.
“We four were travelling from Lennox Head on the far north coast of NSW Australia, itself a surf mecca, but not known for left handers, so we were keen to check out and get a taste of “the longest left hander in the world’.
A bit of a marathon plane ride from the east coast of Australia, we were very happy to finally arrive at Chicama Resort and be greeted by our fantastic hosts Min and Franco (Whom we met a year before in Sri Lanka), Matty our Canadian surf instructor and Rachel, our fabulous English yoga teacher”

“I went on the Peru Pop-up this March 2019 and I can say it was one of the best retreats I have ever been on and I’ve been on a lot of them all over the world. Min organized one day off of surfing to see some of the local culture and heritage and none of us even missed the surfing. It was a very special, spiritual and memorable day which allowed our group to bond even more without the distractions of the outside world.

“Soul & Surf’s Chicama Pop-Up was truly one of the best adventures I’ve had the pleasure of attending. On arrival to my second ever week of surfing at Chicama in Northern Peru (the location of the world’s longest left breaking wave) I immediately felt welcomed and part of a family in what was completely unknown territory for me.”
Samuel Davies – UK
“It was my very first time visiting South America and I could not have asked for a better way to experience this beautiful country of Peru, its population, culture and cuisine. There were no moments in which I would not have felt safe in the water. ”
Roxana – Germany
“This started out as a dream surf trip and became a transformative experience which left me with a happy soul, incredible waves, and good friends. I will be back again.”

“The company, the food, the hotel, were all wonderful and I consider the week in Peru to be one of the best vacations I’ve taken. Thanks to the whole Soul & Surf team!”

“I miss Chicama and am so happy I got to spend such good quality time there. Thank you for making my vacation so memorable. You guys all did a SUPERB job!”
Christiane – New York
“The yoga, the nice rooms, the chill restaurant patio and great food, the boat rides to the surf, the hot showers and massages were amazing. I would totally recommend it to anyone that was looking for that kind of experience. I think the whole soul and surf pop up operation there is dialed. Between Min and Adam and Franco, you had all the bases covered for anyone that would make that trip. It was professional, it was organized, you went out of your way to fill any requests. You guys are excellent hosts!”
