Making girls out of women, Surf Las Olas is the perfect getaway to experience adventure and find your inner balance. Surf Las Olas offers Surf Safaris designed to introduce women to the sea, to begin the process of awareness and inspiration.
Located in the village of Sayulita, Mexico, Las Olas is 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta and a picturesque surfing location. You’ll find yourself in a magical place, a laid back village on the sea. The hum of the fishing boats, returning with their morning catch, can be heard from the villas perched on the tropical hillside surrounding the bay.
Your mornings at Las Olas will begin with a session of relaxing yoga. A certified yoga instructor will lead a series of surf specific stretches that will prepare you for your day on the water. Breathing, stretching, and relaxing is widely known as the essential warm up to a good day of surfing. You will enjoy your personally tailored yoga instruction amidst the dancing palm trees and the salty sea breeze.
Following yoga and breakfast, you will begin your surfing experience with a surf lesson. No need to worry if you have never stepped foot on a surfboard, Las Olas is an incredible place to learn. The surf break is a great beginner’s wave, the water is warm, and you will have the best cheering squad you could ever ask for.
After you get your feet wet (literally) you will enjoy a delicious lunch made using local ingredients. When most of the supermarket food is shipped in from another hemisphere, it’s refreshing to eat produce from farmers who understand “local” to mean “from across the street”. Fish from just beyond the surfbreak, mangoes from the neighbor, and fresh vegetables off the truck daily make up the ingredients of your menu.
The afternoon brings you the opportunity to surf with your instructor and a variety of activities. Master the art of surfboard ownership, learn how to create (and consume) authentic salsa and guacamole, enjoy a surf massage, learn to stand-up paddleboard and more. The variety of activities is sure to make your Surf Safari memorable.
As the day comes to a close, enjoy dinner throughout the village at one of the family restaurants and chat with your new friends about your day on the water. You will then retreat to your villa which features open architecture with cabana-style enclosed bedrooms. Every villa is a work of art individually designed and built by local craftsmen and artisans.
Surf Safaris are perfect for a group of your closest friends or for the solo traveler. Regardless of who you go with, you will leave with life-long friends and memories that will leave you smiling.

The best part of traveling is often enjoying the flavors of the destination. Jamaica is no exception as the island country is home to the world famous jerk flavor. Jerk is a style of cooking (native to Jamaica), in which meats are rubbed with a spice rub made from allspice (pimento), cinnamon, peppers, onion, thyme and garlic and marinated for hours before cooking. After marinating, the meat is placed on raised platforms of pimento wood over hot coals to slowly roast for hours.
There are dozens of restaurants and cook shops across the island that either specialize in jerk cuisine or include it on their daily menu. However, if you want to participate in the total jerk experience, there are many great options!
This is a journey that will excite the taste buds as you make your 180 mile journey around the large island. The jerk trail was created to assist visitors with navigating the island’s many jerk stops, from favorite roadside stands to more traditional restaurants. This island-wide culinary tour is self-guided and includes 22 spicy stops from Negril at the western tip of the island to Port Antonio in the east. Be sure to check out Scotchies in Montego Bay! They have been haled by many as Jamaica’s best Jerk! Scotchies also has locations in Ocho Rios and Kingston. For a full list of jerk stops, visit the Jerk Trail Map
Boston Bay: Jerk Capital of Jamaica
Located in the parish of Portland, Boston Bay is where jerk first became popular. Year-round, Boston Bay and the surrounding roads are lined with a variety of jerk stalls. A visit here is a great way to rub shoulders with locals and grab a picnic before heading down to the beach.
Boston Bay appeals to sun worshipers and vacationers seeking to venture into the realm of water sports. When not grabbing a bite to eat, the golden sands and rough waters will tempt you to grab a surfboard and ride the waves, take a lesson in wind surfing, or venture further out to some good snorkeling sites
Portland Jerk Festival / JULY
The parish of Portland is the birthplace of jerk, which makes the Portland Jerk Festival the best way to celebrate this spicy food in its many forms. Now in its 14th year, this year’s festival is scheduled for July 7 at the Folly Ruins in Port Antonio. In addition to the culinary side, Jamaican music and entertainment for kids are also featured. Bring the whole family to festival to enjoy delicious jerk meats and vegetables, street vendors with local crafts, and music. Leave this festival feeling the island spirit.
“Women with a Past” will savor the delicious descriptive delivered by comedian and author, Ophira Eisenberg, as she embarks on her quest for true love.
The reader soon learns there is a method to her madness.
A crazy yet creative guide to serial psuedo dating housed in an entertaining memoir.
Over-the-Top on Every Level!
Eisenberg is not afraid to dish the dirt on every embarrassing encounter, blurred one night stand and emotional disconnect. Her memories play out like a round of the 1970′s Milton Bradley board game “Mystery Date” on steroids. Sadly, avoiding the “Dud Date” was not possible. In fact, Mr. Dud proved to be a purposeful pawn in Eisenberg’s plan. This tumultuous tale spans a decade honoring each experience as a love lesson learned.
We can’t help but cheer Eisenberg on as she recklessly rides the romance roller coaster.
A must read for those of us who are hopeless romantics “aka suckers” for a happy ending.
