Take in the lush vistas of the rainforest and hear the howler monkey calls while catching the most uncrowded waves in Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity in the world, making it one of the most unique surf spots in Costa Rica. Since the breaks are inside the gulf, the turquoise blue waves are consistently glassy, mellow and perfect for long-boarding. Get ready to surf with more macaws flying around you than people in the line up. Surfing in the Osa Peninsula is perfect for beginner and intermediate surfers, but there is something for everyone!
Whether you’re new to yoga, practice daily, or love meditation, you’ll quickly fall into rhythm overlooking the stunning blue waters where the jungle meets the sea. Nestled in the canopy of a second-story yoga deck is where you’ll reset and find balance in between your surf sessions. Yoga is offered daily by highly experienced teachers who tailor classes to the needs of the group—the perfect compliment to surfing and a way to connect with yourself and feel your best.
Tune into nature where National Geographic describes as “the most biologically intense place on earth.” The Osa Peninsula is itself home to half of all the species in Costa Rica and 2.5% of the world’s total biodiversity, so of course, we’re taking you on some extraordinary adventures.

Our eco-friendly retreat in Costa Rica is located on the edge of a virgin rainforest, nestled between the mountains and shore. All sorts of monkeys, toucans and scarlet macaws are seen from the lodge and yoga deck regularly. As the only lodge on the beach, we consider it one of the most remote surf retreats in Costa Rica. To top it off, we are only a two minute minute walk to a perfect right hand point break so dreamy you might just want to stay forever.
