My trip to Swell Surf Camp was one of the most amazing, memorable trips I've been on. There is no way to put into words how great this place is. From the minute I walked through the doors I felt like I had a new Dominican family. Haudy and the staff at Swell were phenomenal! Haudy is the biggest sweetheart ever...always making sure you are enjoying your stay and making arrangements so you make the most of your trip. Sam, Jack, and Neno are awesome surf instructors, always giving precise tips on how to improve and what you're doing right. I was catching waves with my first lesson. The meals at Swell are delicious...I wish I could say the same for the Mama-Juana. Rooms are clean and the air conditioning is worth the $8/night. I stayed in a premium room and my belongings were always treated with respect. There is free wifi in the common areas and sometimes it worked in my room. The pool is great and perfect for a quick dip to cool off a bit. Yoga sessions twice a week were just what I needed after paddling my arms off.
Swell is the perfect place to meet like-minded travellers from all over the world. I was so sad to leave but know I'll be back soon and hopefully for longer than just a week!
