April 9, 2012, Mahahual, Costa Maya, Mexico – Attention all margarita loving grown-ups who crave the excitement of an ecological jungle adventure and treasure their summer camp memories - UnderToe Mexico Boarding School now offers classes you will not want to miss! Announcing Mexico’s first and only “boarding school for grown-ups”, UnderToe Mexico Boarding School is now taking reservations for the May 13th –19th session.
“Our week long all-inclusive retreat specializes in stand up paddle boarding flat waters of the Yucatan Peninsula. “To make our school a well rounded expedition, we also added cultural experiences that include local Yucatecan cuisine and tours of the
historical Mayan ruins – with all the current interest around the Mayan 2012 calendar, this adds a real historical flavor to the event.” said Carolyn Fairris Thomas, founder of UnderToe Mexico Boarding School. “We want our camp to be fun and exciting with fitness events, social gatherings, and cultural excursions.” Carolyn, an ex-pat Texan now living in Costa Maya, Mexico, has chosen a 10-student maximum for the boarding camp to ensure each student receives personalized attention.
“Our sessions are packed with exciting expeditions on the blue fresh water Laguna Bacalar, in hidden winding lily-pad covered jungle estuaries, and on the open waters of the Western Caribbean,” said Carolyn. UnderToe Mexico Boarding School is surrounded by an ecological preserve in the southern region of the historic Mayan Yucatan, just north of the Belize border. “UnderToe Mexico Boarding School provides pampered resort hotel accommodations where relaxing spa massages are offered to sooth aching muscles after a good paddle work-out,” added Carolyn. “In addition, we teach all levels of flat water paddlers, from beginner to intermediate, SUP board basics, efficient paddle techniques, and help correct any bad habits they may have picked up along the way.”
