XPT Experience Info
June 20-22 2019 | Waterman - Costa Rica
Experience Costa Rica and its myriad of adventures with world renowned waterman, Laird Hamilton.
THIS EXPERIENCE ONLY! We have added a 3 hour surf session with Laird + Ocean Training.

Take this rare chance to surf with the legend himself, and live the XPT lifestyle: Primal workouts on the beach, practice the art of ancient Hawaiians’ ocean strength training (walking underwater with boulders), and explore the terrains with a mountain bike ride through Pura Vida.

World famous surf beaches with 200 kilometers of Guanacaste coastline, fascinating mountains and stunning terrain— each day brings a new activity in this multi-sport adventure.
You’ll be nourished with a nutritional diet and gourmet meals throughout the experience, and a dine on the beach, and a stay at the Santarena Hotel, a tropically elegant oasis.

Here at XPT we practice heat and ice therapy for post-workout recovery. The XPT Heat and Ice Program uses these tools to stimulate your system to promote muscle recovery, for hormone and metabolism balancing, to increase endurance, for easier acquisition of muscle mass, and for a general increased capacity for stress tolerance.
XPT is a lifestyle and life is a constant quest for knowledge and growth. During an XPT Experience, we cover topics on human performance, mind-body, daily goals, nutrition, sleep, and tools for managing stress. All of these things can be taken back home with you to integrate into your regular daily routine.
Everything we do at XPT has an element of fun (especially with Laird involved). XPT is centered around the notion of enjoying life.
Meet new friends. At the XPT Experience we do everything as a group. You will always be around an XPT team member.

Santarena Hotel.

A tropically elegant oasis inspired by a palette of people and places, the Santarena Hotel is a bohemian pearl perched between two of Costa Rica’s loveliest Pacific beaches, in Las Catalinas, Guanacaste. Cosmopolitan minds and curious spirits naturally gather here, gracefully connecting and epitomizing “pura vida” – a life where people and their wellness are top priorities and where nature is cared for and enjoyed by all.
Santarena Hotel is an homage to the old mansions of the great coastal cities of Havana and Cartagena, a traditional gem where sun-kissed days revolve around blossoming courtyards, timeless terraces and picturesque archways surrounded by lush greenery with constant views of the sky. At Santarena, we appreciate luxury but prefer to be in places that feel traveled.

Stylish guest rooms and inviting public spaces are seamlessly woven with gracious hospitality to make this the ideal home base, captivating visitors with an authentic laid-back warmth throughout. Hotel guests are encouraged to rest, relax and decompress, but are also wholeheartedly invited to take advantage of the outdoors, through a wide range of outdoor activities literally at Santarena’s doorstep, including an extensive trail system with over 40 kilometers of hiking, meditation and mountain biking trails as well as water activities such as SUP, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba.
