10 girls. 9 days. 1 beach house
Next trips : April | May 2018
Our belief is that daily life is meant to be filled with excitement and energy !
We are inviting you to come dive into our colourful universe, offering vibrant & ambitious girls
the opportunity to explore & unleash their true potential.
On the land, as in the sea, you will be challenged,
but you’ll also find yourself laughing out loud and dancing under the moon.
The Salty Souls Experience will increase your energy, your confidence, broaden your connections, and more simply…
Leave you high on life !
“Surf is like the mafia… Once you’re in, you can’t get out. ” – Kelly Slater
Whether you’ve always dreamed of surfing, but never really had the chance to commit to it, or you tried a few times, fell in love with it and you now want to learn more, we promise you unforgettable memories in the ocean ! By learning with our professional surf coaches, your improvement will be rapid and effective, allowing you to get a taste of the incredibly sweet sensation of sliding down a wave !
- 3 theoretical classes
- 4 practical lessons assisted by experienced local surfers (1:1 ratio)
- Photos of your sessions (we’ll do group analysis at night)
* The risks of becoming totally addicted to this sport are pretty high… We just thought you should know !
+ FITNESS & SELF-DEFENSE
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha
Here is a special addition to our regular program. Holistic or 360° training is fitness with a multi-dimensional approach that will take you way beyond the physical aspect. Our health system addresses more than just muscle strength and endurance; it also seeks to improve the mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. We are offering you the occasion to step out of the conventional gym, step up your physical game, and develop the ‘super-human’ qualities of an athlete.
- 7 training sessions
- 3 self-defense & jiu-jitsu workshops
- 1 theoretical workshop on health and wellness
“You think adventure is dangerous…try routine, it’s lethal.”
Ecuador is a pretty epic country to explore. Here are the highlights of the bucket list we’ve lined up for this trip:
✓ Trek into the jungle
✓ Navigate the equatorial coast in a fisherman boat
✓ Snorkel the colourful water around Salango Island
✓ Wrestle in a mud pool
✓ Experience a shamanic Temazcal ceremony
✓ Start a dance battle in “la calle de los cócteles” on our night out in Montañita
“ We are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. ”
This experience is most probably the best occasion you’ll ever have to finally surround yourself with 14 active and inspiring chicks who have dreams as big as yours ! The Salty Souls is your tribe, it’s a community of girls that want to do things differently. We can only imagine what projects, trips, ideas or sister-like friendships will arise from getting all the coolest women together for 9 days.
Above all, this experience will allow you to connect with yourself. To give your body & mind the space to remember what truly makes you vibe…
What do you really want ? How can we help you achieve it ?
“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
To live this experience to the fullest, you’ll obviously need some very good fuel, and that’s why we thought of including a delicious & healthy menu. The Salty Souls’ approach is all about eating clean, without compromising the pleasure. We believe in finding the right balance !
Our cook chooses fresh and local ingredients to create finger-licking meals full of superfoods, which will make you feel physically awesome !
You’ll undoubtedly be heading back home with a bunch of new recipe ideas.
↠ Who ↞
Who Is This Experience For ?
This adventure is for women aged over 18, that are ready to ignite their passion for adventure ! We are looking for vibrant, passionate and active girls, who are not afraid of getting wet & salty, who are willing to say YES to new challenges, and who are thirsty to learn, share and welcome new perspectives. Having a burning desire to be part of this is all you need; no prior experience in yoga, surf, meditation, hiking or backflippin’ is necessary.
If you are seeking a super relaxing retreat, filled with pedicures and manicures… sorry, but this is not the experience you are looking for. If you are feeling super YOLO and just wanna party ’til the AM with your best friend, we would also advise you to look elsewhere.

↠ Where ↞
The Beach House
Every morning you will wake up to the sound of crashing waves in a homely beach house facing the ocean, only a few foot steps away from the sea ! Yep, the Salty Casa, located in Playa Ayampe, can accommodate 10 people in double or quadruple rooms with private bathrooms. There is a large swimming pool, a sundeck, a wood-fired pizza oven, a pool table, a slackline, a nice chilling area with hammocks hung in between palm trees and enough space in the backyard for yoga & big communal meals !
About Playa Ayampe
Ayampe is a lay back surf town, located on the pacific coast 3 hours North of Guayaquil airport. This little piece of paradise has remained particularly authentic and is the perfect place to take some “me” time and connect with the sea and sky. Ayampe, with its smiley locals, offers a constant beach break kilometres long, warm water and breath taking sunsets. What else do you really need ? 🙂
