The NUSHU Surf Retreat aims to combine adventure, fun, and joy with opportunities for connecting with incredible women in a safe, nurturing, and judgment-free environment. We will create the conditions to come home to yourself in community, to remove all masks, show up exactly as you are, and be celebrated and loved for it.
Experience for one week what a full-body YES feels like. Our retreat will give you a chance to step out of your everyday life and deepen your connection to nature, others, and most importantly, to yourself. You will go back to your life forever changed- with a deeper understanding of what it means to be supported, nourished, seen, and acknowledged as the unique and beautiful gift that you are.
The retreat is located in a beautiful villa nestled high in the privacy of a lush jungle. Our private accommodation, which is a short walk from the beach, offers a safe container to connect deeply with nature and yourself. You’ll share the Pura Vida lifestyle of this unique laid-back destination, surf your hearts out in warm blue waves, and meet an amazing local community of like-minded women that inspire a mindful and simple way of living.
Our destination is unique for its patches of unspoiled nature, rocky coastline full of natural tide pools, and amazing wildlife. This piece of paradise remains untouched after the booming development of Santa Teresa but is still close to its gorgeous beach, dreamy surroundings, cozy restaurants, and beautiful atmosphere.
