About Cari Javoroski


Hotel Santa Catalina

Our accommodation is hosted at the picturesque Santa Catalina hotel, owned by local surfer Kenny Meyers. Only a 5 minute walk to Playa Estero and a 10 minute walk into town. Secluded and nestled into nature, the property backs onto the Pacific Ocean, giving you your own private beach at hide tide. It's also a popular spot for advanced surfers to make the 20min paddle out to The Point (La Punta). On a big wave day you can watch the surfers right from the hotel grounds. At high tide, you can also take the kayaks and stand up paddle boards out for a paddle. Wonderful islands surround Santa Catalina, it's worth exploring, plus it's a great work out!

All rooms have been built using natural sustainable materials including stone, slate rock, natural coal tile and tropical hardwoods - preserving the environment while providing a comfortable haven for you to unwind after a day of Surf and Yoga. All rooms have memory foam mattresses, plush pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets, fan, a/c., fridge, blow dryer, cable tv, and safe. Plush beach and bathroom towels are also included.

This trip was a trip of a lifetime. Hotel Santa Catalina and the owners were the most generous and kind people I have ever dealt with. Best location for accommodations, best view from a bar/restaurant, and the beds were very comfy. Can't wait to go back.
