7-Day Costa Rican Luxe Yoga Adventure Retreat

Yoga, Surf, and Stand Up Paddling in Nosara

Location: Nosara With: Jessica Bellofatto

I am thrilled to be returning to the Costa Rican jungle after a 5 year hiatus to offer this yoga, paddleboarding, and surf retreat in style. Nosara is, in some ways, the Tulum or the Hamptons of Costa Rica, with awesome shopping, nightlife if you desire it, delicious cuisine, and some of the most spectacular beaches in the world.

Our Venue for This Retreat

For this retreat, we are renting a private luxury villa. This gorgeous property boasts the largest salt water pool on the beach with a custom swim up pool bar. The layout consists of 4 buildings that make up 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and can accommodate parties up to 20. There are 3 master suites, 4 studio suites and a kids room with a bunk/trundle bed. The main house has a custom kitchen with upgraded stainless appliance. All bathrooms have stone and tile showers and custom poured concrete vanity/sinks. The landscaping is laid out to maintain the Costa Rican feel and there are tropical views from any of the several outdoor patio lounging areas. Three soothing fountains finish the landscaping to make you feel relaxed and at home regardless of where on the property you are sitting. The outdoor structures include a two story 2000 sf open air Rancho. The main floor is full amenity livable. A complete custom kitchen, dining seating for 20 and a living room area complete with a flat screen tv. The second floor has a large yoga studio for our twice daily classes, as well as a separate structure for meditation or private massages. There are two strategically placed outdoor showers. One in the front of the property for rinsing off the beach sand and the second in the pool area for before or after a dip as well as an outdoor bathroom for use by swimmers. The house is conveniently and perfectly located in the desired “K” section of Playa Guiones. This is the closest section to beach access and as close to the beach as the local government will allow real estate 🙂 We are a 2 minute walk to one of the best surfing beaches in the world (which is also amazing for swimming, long beach walks or runs, and famous Costa Rican sunsets! There are several restaurants within a 3-5 minute walk and a 5 minute walk from town.

Exquisite Organic Cuisine

I am beyond excited that my boyfriend, chef, author, and culinary ethno-botanist Adam Kelinson will be preparing our meals for this retreat. The food will be beyond compare, sourced daily, with organic vegetables from the local farmer’s market, fish plucked out of the ocean just hours (or minutes!) earlier, delighting your palate and fulfilling and nourishing your body in a way that you have possibly never experienced before (he’s THAT good!)!
