The tube (hot water geyser)

 

The Tube is the Zorrito's natural jacuzzi. I'ts a night tour because the water is very hot. To get there you cross a bushy dry forest full of carob trees. And if you are lucky you'll see wild little foxes in their habitat. Once you get to the tube you can get into a pool of the geyser water.

Surf

When the northern swell arrives to Zorritos,  it is the best season to go surfing. The rest of the year you can surf nice small waves with no people around at the sea. This is better if you are a beginner or want to learn how to surf. The sea temperature is quite warm, so you won't need a wetsuit. You can also surf until almost  night time or really early in the morning.

When there are no waves in Zorritos, we can go a few kilometers away to a beach which always has a good waves.

If you want to learn how to surf, you can have a lesson or 2 with us! We give lessons and all the necessary gear to learn how  to surf securely.

Cost: $20 USD Dollars

Includes: Transfer to the beach, lesson, gear, surfboard and return to the hotel.
