Is this Yoga Retreat right for you?

This retreat is for you if…


You wish to learn and practice powerful yogic techniques to balance stress and anxiety.


You’re a true nature lover or wish to explore it. 


You enjoy ALL things nature including fresh, semi-open-air accommodations, outdoor showers, secluded beaches and waterfalls, and the most biodiverse wildlife this world has to offer (monkeys, exotic birds, turtles, butterflies, etc.). 


You appreciate simplicity and rustic luxury. 


You enjoy making friends and building community just as much as you enjoy time alone. 


You appreciate and respect culture everywhere you go. 


You seek an authentic & mindful yoga retreat experience where you’ll get to disconnect, reconnect, recharge, and explore meaningful transformation. 


This retreat is NOT for you if…


You cannot tolerate heat and humidity.


You have some type of bug phobia or think bugs are dirty. The rainforest is their home, we are the visitors. 


You get easily scared by animals you don’t see everyday (monkeys, macaws, hummingbirds, frogs).


You need to be connected to wifi at ALL times 


You cannot roll-out of bed without your blow dryer, checking email, social media, and watching the 8 o’clock news. 


You simply cannot live without some of the comforts of home (hot water, AC, appliances, hailing a taxi or ordering takeout). 


Unpaved roads are not your thing. 


You have a mobility concern that would prevent you from climbing a few stairs on a daily basis. 


Getting There

Step 1 - Fly to Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), San Jose, Costa Rica. 


Step 2 - Take a 50-minute flight to Puerto Jimenez. 


You can book your flight with Sansa at: www.flysansa.com. It is highly recommended that you book your flight early as they do fill up quickly. 


Step 3- Wait for, and board the pre-arranged taxi and head to Finca Exotica. 


The ride from Puerto Jimenez to Finca Exotica takes around 1.5 - 2 hours. Please plan to arrive early to mid afternoon as the road is much easier to drive during daylight hours.
