Pura Vida Adventures, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
One way to assuage your guilt about leaving your little ones is to do something they wouldn't — or couldn't — enjoy. This empowering surf camp for women in the cool surf town of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, is a great spot to remind yourself that you're more than just a mama. Surf lessons are interspersed with daily yoga classes and plenty of beach chill time; while some session weeks are coed, most are female only, and as a result, it's easy to become BFFs and share with your fellow surfer chicas. Meeting new friends (and not just because you have kids roughly the same age) can help you connect back to yourself all while learning a new skill you'll be psyched to show off to your kids the next time you're on a family vacation.
