Our camp kicks off with your arrival into Liberia International Airport (LIR), and transport to our home for 5 nights, the community of Las Catalinas.

The next morning, we begin our week of focused swim training with a pool session, followed by brunch, time to explore your beautiful surroundings, and 1:1 swim technique sessions begin with Coach Bonnie.

We include yoga, open water swimming, time to hike, get a massage, enjoy the beach, workout at the gym, and even try the trails with a mountain bike rental from Pura Vida Ride.
