Retreat Destination: Puerto Viejo

Nestled along the less-traveled Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica lies Puerto Viejo, a hidden gem. Renowned for its pristine turquoise-blue beaches, some of the country's best, this coastal paradise is the perfect location for a yoga retreat. Kirby, who called Puerto Viejo home for the last 3 years, intimately knows its vibrant community and the best-hidden spots and beaches to add to your itinerary. Wander through streets lined with ancient trees, lush greenery, and vibrant vines, as macaws soar overhead and sloths leisurely cross your path. Embrace the laid-back "pura vida" vibe of this bike-friendly beach town, where time seems to slow down, inviting you to truly savor each moment. Puerto Viejo is not just a destination—it's an authentic taste of Costa Rican paradise.

The Food

From the dawn of time, the kitchen table has been the heart of gatherings, where stories are shared. If the body was a house, the kitchen table would be an extension of your feelings , it's the space for conversation, your speech, and the key to your heart. Eating is feeling, and we want you to feel your most radiant self. That's why all our food is locally sourced, ensuring freshness and flavor that's second to none. Breakfast, where unlimited coffees and teas await every morning, accompanied by fresh papayas picked from the garden, juicy mangos and hydrating coconut water straight from the source. Fresh fish daily, expertly prepared by our onsite chef, paired with crisp local salads drizzled with a tangy passion fruit dressing. Try local Costa Rican staples like Caribbean chicken and Coconut milk rice and beans—each dish infused with the vibrant spices and flavors beloved by the Caribbean coast.
