Casa Kickapoo

Mauricio Gomes

All in all, this trip was a life changer for me…both physically and mentally. If you love jiu jitsu and/or surfing you have to visit Casa Kickapoo!!

I’ve received the finest royal treatment one could wish for, from the minute I got picked-up from the airport to the moment I got dropped-off – a very sad day as I could have easily stayed with Luis and Gloria endlessly since it was so easy to forget that I had a life back in London.

The best trip I have ever taken. Surfing, training, and eating every meal with people around the world like a giant family. Luis and Gloria thank you so much for hosting all of us and making us feel at home every single day.

Estero de Jaltepeque, La Paz

Casa Kickapoo is a waterfront property on the Estero de Jaltepeque in the department of La Paz – about an hour away from the capital city of San Salvador.

The property reaches all the way to the ocean on the other side of a peninsula, just a short 5 minute walk from the house. This unique setting gives our guests direct access to both the estuary and the ocean.

This place, its absolute unreal, to say that it was paradise is an understatement! I mean wow! You know when you look through a travel magazine and you see the typical paradise photos, well I was actually in this kind of place, absolute paradise!

Jiu Jitsu


Mauricio Gomes is one of six people commonly known as the ‘Famous Five’ to have been promoted to black belt by Rolls Gracie prior to Gracie’s tragic death.

He has been training and teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for over 50 years and is currently a 7th degree black and red coral belt.

He is the father of BJJ and ADCC World Champion Roger Gracie.

Mauricio is known as the godfather of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the United Kingdom, where he was the founder of the first Gracie Barra franchise. Mauricio spends his time between Brazil and the United Kingdom, where he is the main instructor at the Roger Gracie academy in London.

Mauricio is very passionate about teaching and sharing his knowledge and would like to invite you to one of a kind Jiu Jitsu adventure!




Costa del Sol is one of the longest, widest and most beautiful beaches in the country. It’s also considered one of the best surfing beach breaks in El Salvador. We grew up surfing and fishing in these waters and know them very well.

The surf works best in the summer months, between November and April (dry season), usually on an incoming or outgoing high tide. The swell drops significantly during this time, but the offshore winds kick in and more than make up for the smaller size surf with endless days of perfect barrels.

Tired of the crowds back home? We guarantee you and your group will be the only ones out on the lineup at any given time. The conditions during this time of the year are usually beginner friendly, although intermediate to advanced surfers will also appreciate it when it gets big and punchy.





Your package includes two weekly morning yoga classes!

Our resident instructors are registered yoga teachers by Yoga Alliance. We offer Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga vinyasa.

We are hoping our yoga sessions will help you with all the surfing and training!



We offer plenty of activities and sightseeing tours for those who would like to take a break from our daily schedule.
