CIRENAS offers a breadth of adventure, wellness, and cultural activities to experience during your stay on campus. Combined with our experiential education programs, the activities offered at CIRENAS will enrich your experience with lots of fun.


Surfing, Kayaking & Paddle Boarding Lessons

Playa Hermosa and Playa Manzanillo offer idyllic condition for both beginner and advanced surfers. With trained surf guides, we guarantee you will experience the thrill of gliding over the clear, blue water of the Pacific Ocean. We can also take you on a SUP or kayak paddle out to the Manzanillo outer reefs or up one of nearby mangrove estuaries.


Yoga & Meditation

As part of your stay, we can offer morning or afternoon yoga and meditation lessons to connect the mind and body. Our classes will challenge you physically, but more than that they will be an opportunity to increase self-awareness, knowledge and joy.
