Experience the joy of Costa Rican living, la pure vida, at Tierra de Sueños Retreat & Wellness Center - Playa Chiquita just outside of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. This is as far East and South in Costa Rica as you can possibly be. Gorgeous turquoise Caribbean sea and sandy beaches await!
We’ll be nestled away in an Eco-facility, off of the beaten path. Enjoy the simple, paradise life while submersed in the sights and sounds of the jungle and right across the street from the beach.
The journey to Costa Rica and your final destination at Tierra de Sueños is the start of your adventure into one of the greatest Caribbean destinations in the world. Between your yoga practice and meals, you have the opportunity to experience and explore: Anything from ziplining through the jungle to riding whitewaters on a guided raft, surfing to horseback riding, snorkeling, or special tours to learn about local culture, business and environment.
Or… nothing at all… lounge in your hammock, experiencing nature‘s cacophony of sound and color, laze on the beach, enjoy the breeze of the ceiling fan in your bungalow!
Less in need of adventure? If you’re feeling the need to move, restore and center, you’ll experience energetic yoga flows, restorative yoga nidra and meditation taught in a way makes the elusive still mind accessible! Between them, Rebecca and Kate have over 40 years experience practice and teaching yoga, not to mention lifetimes of travel and exploration worldwide!
