What You'll Do

Unwind in this beautiful Costa Rican beach lodge, nestled on the edge of a stunning nature reserve right on the beach. Enjoy daily outdoor yoga sessions surrounded by the sounds and sights of the area's rich wildlife, with plenty of free time to relax and explore the diverse surroundings.

This picturesque 4 night yoga and wellness holiday offers an intimate and uplifting experience with eco-friendly accommodation and a focus on inner development towards a peaceful emotional outlook. The lush rainforest is not only home to rare flora and fauna, but also provides a spiritual haven, where you can unwind and recover from the stress and anxiety of everyday life. While surrounded by jungle, the beach is right on your doorstep!

The retreat is designed to maximise guests’ relaxation. The warm and beautiful surroundings are the perfect location for you to practice yoga and return home feeling revived and inspired to improve your lifestyle with inner peace and personal satisfaction in mind.

Each morning before breakfast, you will take part in outdoor yoga and meditation sessions on a wooden shaded deck right on the beach. Practice yoga against the rainforest backdrop, amid the sound of exotic birds and chattering monkeys, and crashing waves. Take breakfast on a hillside terrace, enjoying the beautiful Costa Rican morning sun and reflect on the day ahead.

The beach lodge is really spacious with 5 warmly decorated twin/double and private rooms. Each room has a view of the jungle and private bathrooms with hot water showers. You are free to spend the day relaxing in the swimming pool, on the beach, hit a local restaurant or lie around in one of the retreat’s many hammocks to soak up the sun.

The retreat also organises loads of fun and exciting optional excursions for an extra cost including surfing, SUP, horse-riding, fishing, boat tours and jungle treks so you won’t be stuck for things to do. There are also purpose built treatment rooms offering a range of holistic therapies if you’re looking to pamper yourself during your holiday for an extra cost.

The yoga holidays run between Sunday and Saturday for 4 nights/ 5 days. If you would like to stay extra nights please enquire.

Getting there

Nearest Airport:
San Jose (4 ½ hours away)

Overnight Stay:
Our guests tend to arrive in San Jose after a long haul flight and we therefore highly recommend an overnight stay in local accommodation in order to rest, ready to move on to the yoga retreat the following day.

The yoga retreat recommend staying in the Radisson Hotel or at The Costa Verde Inn which are in a lovely neighbourhood and just 25 minutes from the airport (please note the cost of this night is not included in the holiday price and is an extra cost to be booked independently).

Transport to the Nicoya Peninsula:

For travel to the Nicoya Peninsula, there are two options - air or overland. Costa Rica Green Airways has direct flights from San Jose to Tambor Airport, 27Km from the resort, for about $85 - $110 each way. The flights, in 12-person planes, take just twenty minutes so they're definitely the fastest way to go as well as being a great way to see the country by air, with a landing just off the beach. Other airlines include Sansa and Aerobell.

Alternatively, you can choose to travel overland. Tropical Tours provide a daily air-conditioned shuttle bus service which includes ferry fee between Montezuma & Cabuya and San Jose from about $50 per person. They can also collect you as part of their service at your hotel in San Jose or at San Jose airport and transport you direct to Cabuya.
