Surf & Yoga Retreats in Costa Rica
Our retreats in Costa Rica are located on the edge of the virgin rainforest, nestled between the mountains and perfect waves. Every day we are visited by abundant wildlife ranging from macaws to agoutis. We have two incredible retreat locations based in the same area, each with a unique feel and vibe. Depending on the dates, we will be based at one or the other of these incredible locations.
Explore Costa Rica
Surf pristine waves, all while taking in the lush views of the rainforest and the sounds of the howler monkeys. World-renowned for its unparalleled biodiversity, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most unique surf spots in the world. The breaks are tucked inside the gulf, allowing for consistently glassy, mellow waves atop turquoise blue waters – a longboarder’s dream! Don’t be surprised if more macaws are flying around you than other surfers in the water – these perfect waves are uncrowded. Surfing here is ideal for beginner and intermediate surfers.
Described by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on earth”, the Osa Peninsula is home to some of the world’s most fascinating plants and wildlife. Get ready to explore – we are taking you on adventures! Here are some examples:
