Cool casitas, gourmet meals and surf lessons ratchet up the outdoorsy factor for women who want to learn how to ride the waves in Mexico's Baja California. Outfitter Mountain Travel Sobek offers a week-long "girls-only" surf trip that's based in the town of Todos Santos on Baja's west coast.

The Baja Surf Retreat for Women spends mornings with a yoga class before hitting the water at Los Cerritos Beach and taking lessons from veteran local instructor Mario Beceril. The trip is good for beginners and moderately proficient surfers.

But the trip isn't just about riding waves either. Afternoon excursions include exploring the town of Todos Santos, horseback rides on the beach, a massage, snorkeling and a visit to a sea lion colony too.

Trips depart Feb. 3 and April 7. Click here for details
