About this trip

I am a lover of education, travel, nature, history, community, and yoga. As an avid traveler, it is difficult for me to just go to the beach. I know that there are people who love doing that, but I need just a bit more. In Costa Rica, one has the opportunity to lounge at the beach, dip one's toes in Caribbean OR Pacific waters, see monkeys, play with sloths, marvel at manatees, zip-line, raft rapids, eat the best mangos you've ever had (seriously), drink passionfruit juice every day, learn about the history and culture of Central America, and interact with the indigenous Bri Bri community. AND you can do all of this in an eco-friendly way. This retreat is designed for the person who doesn't want to be cloistered in a resort for a week, but would like the option to engage in a culturally meaningful way  while enjoying a blissful yoga retreat. Choose your adventure.

About Puerto Viejo

Puerto Viejo is in the Limón Province on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. It is south and east of San José, and close to neighboring country, Panama. Playa Chiquita is located 3.7m / 6 km south of Puerto Viejo, and is the secluded beach area where we will be staying at the Tierra de Sueños Retreat Wellness & Center. Because of its location, one can enjoy absolute respite in Playa Chiquita or take a 10 minute taxi ride to lively Puerto Viejo. Check out Tierra de Sueños and Playa Chiquita!

What to See and Do

You will not be sequestered at the retreat center so that you may enjoy all that this Costa Rican area has to offer. Excursions are optional and highly encouraged! 

(Guided excursions range from $40-90 and are arranged directly with the excursions organizers.)

Popular activities include:

  • White water rafting
  • Canopy Tours (zip-lining)
  • Surfing
  • Hiking
  • Snorkeling / Diving
  • Horseback Riding
  • Animal engagement at the animal rescue center & turtle encounter areas
  • Bike riding
  • Kayaking
  • Cultural visits with the Bribri 

Personally, I do not believe any trip to Puerto Viejo is complete unless you've biked all around. You can rent a bike for $8/day on Playa Chiquita, or head to PV proper and rent a bike there. This is a very laid back part of the country, so expect greetings of  "Pura Vida!" and a lifestyle that sways to a reggae beat.

Tamika Caston-Miller
I am an avid traveler and yogini whose perfect situation is practicing yoga amongst the sights and sounds of nature. I have practiced yoga since 2001, but wasn't in a serious, consistent relationship with the yoga until I found my perfect community and styles. I have extensively researched modifications for different body types and situations, including coming back from or working with injuries, as well as using yoga to unlock energy meridians and chakras. I am committed to creating a community through the practice of yoga, and helping others create an authentic, compassionate, and sustainable practice as our bodies and minds evolve. For this reason, I prefer Forrest-inspired Flow, Yin, and Restorative styles of yoga. Attendees of this retreat can expect thoughtfully curated sequences that inspire deep introspection and growth on and off the mat.
