About this trip

The Grande retreat is a week full of fun beach workouts, sunset yoga, specialized yoga workshop, home cooked meals, surfing and total relaxation. Located right on the beach, you have lots of options to choose from to fill your day exactly how you want to.

 

Wake up the sound of the ocean right outside your room. Make your way through the Vellas Blancas to you find a fruit bowl, coffee and tea waiting for you poolside before the morning meditation.


After your morning snack, take part of a guided meditation on the beach. At this time, the beach is  empty save for a few surfers. After this 20 minutes exercise, get your workout gear on and get ready for your workout of the day. 


Once the morning activities are done, you head back to the dinning area to enjoy breakfast by the pool. All of the meals are prepared on site by our private chef who sources ingredients in local grocery stores.


During your free time during the day, you have many options. You can go into Tamarindo for some shopping, take a long walk on Playa Grande right outside the resort, stay and lounge in hammocks or lounge chairs in the resort, hang out in your room to enjoy some AC or go surfing.


In the afternoon, it’s surfing time! Whether you're a total beginner or more advanced, Playa Grande has waves for you. You’ll find different types of breaks suitable for all levels. Our surf instructor teaches a methodical approach to surfing, starting with a quick theory lesson, without the board.


If you prefer to stay off the surf board, take a specialized yoga worksop or a core and glute workout under the shade of the pavillion.


End the activities with sunset yoga, unwind and stretch your body to the unforgettable Costa Rican sunset. 


After diner, you can expect different evening activities ranging from games night, salsa dancing and  a night market excursion.


Take a break from the workouts on Thursday and go on a guided kayaking tour in the Baulas National park, in which the resort is located. On this two and a half hour journey, expect to see crocodiles, monkeys and other wildlife of the Costa Rican jungle.


On the last day of the retreat, a massage therapist will be on site, giving one hour massages to those interested.


 

The resort 


Las Vellas Blancas are located on Playa Grande, right beside the town of Tamarindo. Separated by a small river you can cross by boat, this beach is a lot less busy than Tamarindo beach.


The Bungalows accommodate three people, two in a shared room and one in a private room. All the rooms come with AC, in suite bathroom and towels. Each bungalow has a fully equipped kitchenette including a fridge and counter top convention oven. 


Casa Guayacan is where the dorm rooms are located. The house is located right beside the pool and also has it's own lounging area and fully appointed kitchen.


The pool offers an easy way to refresh yourself and has lounge chairs around it, some under the shade and some in the sun. 


The dinning area is right beside the pool, with one long communal table to share your meals with your new friends.


Two storey high, the pavilion offers soothing down time. Either relax in the hammocks on the ground floor or enjoy a cup of Costa Rican coffee on the lunge chairs with view of the ocean.
