It's time to enjoy life

Our Surf and Yoga retreat will take you out of the routine to lodge you in a beachfront paradise for an unforgettable vacation week!

Balanced blissful program

We combine: daily surf lessons at the best pristine  beach with yoga classes under palm trees, guided activities to get to know the local lifestyle, 1 full day snorkeling tour to Tortuga Island and of course there is always time to relax in the hammocks. Every day you will enjoy 3 delicious and healthy meals that will fill your body with energy to enjoy a revitalizing experience.

Beachfront Lodging

Our lodging is located in the coastal town of Cabuya, just 2km from the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula where the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve (the first National Protected Area Park in the Costa Rica) is located making it possible to live with wildlife in perfect harmony, which makes this experience much more enriching.

Under this scenario we invite you to participate in our Surf and Yoga retreat, where we will accommodate you in a comfortable beachfront house, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden, with access to a restaurant and swimming pool. Our staff is here to make you feel at home and make sure you relax and enjoy.
Our menu is designed with the help of nutritionists for the greatest benefit for your body and performance in the daily activities of Surf and Yoga in this tropical climate.

Where we surf

Firsts classes are at Playa Grande Montezuma, a stunning beach within the Romelia National Wildlife Refuge and surrounded by two national parks and wildlife conservation areas. Located a few kilometers inside the Gulf of Nicoya and facing south.

This protects Playa Grande (Romelia Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre) from the waves and currents of the open ocean, which allows the sandbar to be maintained all year round and thus guarantees good conditions for surfing all year round. (Which is not possible on the west side of the peninsula which in the rainy season the sand is washed and the stones come out, making it much more difficult to start the beginner level and having to go to small specific places full of other surfing camps ).

The only way to access Playa Grande is through a beautiful path bordering the sea, “Sendero el Sueño Verde“. 

In addition of being full of history is the only access enabled since all the area is absolute protected area only walking access is permitted, this ensures nature and few people on the beach and surfing. Our equipment is at Refugio Romelia, so you just have to carry your personal items.

Surf Program

Our surf retreat program is a proven program to provide a progressive, yet fun surfing experience leading to confidence in the water and your surfing skills.

The surf program begins with a theoretical introduction about behavior and attitude in class, surf equipment, safety protocol, and basic surf techniques. Then we will go to the practical part in the water in the safe zone of the white water where we will begin to put into action everything learned in the theoretical. On the first day, we focus on maintaining a relaxed behavior and a positive attitude in the water also in following the 5 safety rules of the protocol and finally in the basic techniques of surfing.
In each class we will evaluate the skills and performance of each person to be able to plan and tailor our next class, sometimes we have to separate the group to guarantee that everyone can enjoy the surfing sessions at their level.

The objective of this surfing program is that each person can improve their behavior and attitude in surfing sessions, enter the water with the security of understanding the preventive safety protocol to know how and where to move in the water.
