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…

Each day, there is a free shuttle to a different local beach where we can swim and take in the gorgeous sunsets.

We begin each morning early, as the jungle wakes up!  After a light snack of fruit, tea, coffee or juice, 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 optional excursions and adventures, talks on yoga philosophy, and afternoon yoga classes. You will also be invited to join song circles and chant sessions. No experience necessary. There’s 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!
