I booked a spot at a surf & jiu-jitsu camp at Casa Kickapoo sometime last fall, not knowing anyone else going, just judging by the description of the camp and the location. My judgement was not wrong, but no completely right either…this place far exceeded my hopes and expectations!
I arrived late at night, so when I woke up the next morning and looked around- I was stunned, and couldn’t stop smiling! The house and grounds are well kept, and has anything one can wish for. Lots of hammocks, sofas and chairs to lounge in, a pool, slack line, paddle boards, jet ski…and for this particular camp, a bjj mat space under the palm trees.
The estuary is right ahead and the beach just a few minutes walk away.
Luis, Gloria and their crew were fantastic!! They made me feel right at home and catered to all my needs before I even knew I had them! I felt so spoiled. We were well fed all the time, chef Rodrigo cooked up all kinds of good stuff! Surf lessons by Luis (the other Luis) were great, got me feeling (almost) like a pro before I left!
Any concerns I had about safety in El Salvador were only that, concerns. I felt very safe the whole time.
I would love to come back here, and recommend anyone who wants to experience a piece of paradise, and make new friends along the way, to book a stay at Casa Kickapoo!!
