Costa Rica

About the retreat

Set in the jungle on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Hacienda del Sol is a sanctuary for the body, mind and soul. It’s also a fabulous jumping-off location for many of the adventures that Costa Rica is known for.

Hacienda del Sol itself boasts organic gardens and incredible food; every single thing they serve is delicious, healthy, and full of love. The setting is intimate with 12 cabinas (including bathrooms), each artistically designed and different from one another.  On the grounds there is a salt-water infinity pool, outdoor covered yoga space with jungle scenery and soundscape, open air dining area over looking lush flower gardens, world class massage therapists, a wifi area if you absolutely must stay in touch, a meditation hut, and friendly staff whose priority is making sure your stay is as peaceful and nourishing as possible. Check out the retreat centre here:

For those with a desire for adventure, there’s no place quite like Costa Rica! You can choose from a range of adventures, from a leisurely kayak to a full-on zip-line tour of the jungle canopy.  Other adventures include an ATV waterfall tour, horseback riding, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, and more…

Within a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute shuttle) from the retreat centre is a private black sand beach great for swimming, and a longer hike of about 45 minutes (10 minute shuttle) takes you to the fishing village of San Juanillo and some beautiful white sand beaches.

We begin each morning early, as the jungle wakes up!  After a light snack of fruit and tea, we’ll do a half hour of walking and seated meditation, followed by a short break and then an hour and a half of gentle dynamic yoga (suitable for all levels and abilities). From there, each day will be a little bit different, with excursions and adventures, group coaching sessions, talks on yoga philosophy, and afternoon yoga classes. If you want to push your edge and go deeper into self-exploration and personal growth, it is our commitment to create a safe and supportive space for you. There’s also lots of free time built in to the retreat to hike to the beach, hang out by the pool, have a massage, take a nap, or whatever else you want to do!

Accommodation for 7 nights in private or shared cabinas, all meals and snacks made with organic local produce and seafood (ALL dietary restrictions happily accommodated), daily yoga and meditation sessions, group coaching sessions, three excursions (a guided hike to the black sand beach, a guided hike to the white sand beach, and a sunset boat cruise).
