Yes, three NotInTheGuideBooksholidays in The Guardian
GoLearnTo.com are pleased to feature three of their inspirational learning holidays in the Guardian on Saturday 5 January 2013.
Surfing and photography, Costa Rica
Taking pictures of the sea is almost as tricky as surfing. Improve both skills in Costa Rica, with a new course of lessons in surfing and digital photography at Jaco Beach, Puntarenas. It costs £363pp for a week or £649pp for two, with student-style accommodation from £107pp a week (golearnto.com). Surfing equipment is provided, but not cameras.
• Fly to San José from Heathrow from £567 with Air Canada
Learn to scuba dive, Egypt
A week’s B&B accommodation in the Bedouin Moon Hotel, on the beach at Dahab, is on special offer at £373pp with a five-day Padi open water scuba diving course in the Red Sea thrown in (0845 625 0445, golearnto.com).
• Fly from Luton to Sharm el Sheikh with Thomson Airways from £169
Surfing, Essaouira, Morocco
Not sure you’ll enjoy surfing enough to commit to a whole week’s holiday? Spend a weekend in Essaouira testing the water on this new NotInTheGuideBooksbreak. Six hours of small-group instruction is spread over two days. Accommodation is in a traditional riad in the town’s medina, so if you get wiped out you can take a break to visit the souks, soothe tired muscles in a hammam or hang out on the roof terrace, sipping mint tea.
• From £295pp for three nights, including instruction, board and wetsuit, B&B accommodation and transfers (0845 625 0445, golearnto.com). EasyJet, Thomson and Ryanair fly to Marrakech from several UK airports
