Jungle lodge yoga holiday

Costa Rica

Highlights

Yoga Holistic therapies Tropical paradise

Overview

We have been offering yoga and soul wellness retreats in the beautiful Nicoya Peninsula Costa Rica since 2014.

Our Costa Rica retreat is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday which gives you the chance to practice yoga in a tropical paradise and to experience the rich culture and diverse wildlife of this amazing country.

As well as the opportunity to practise yoga with an experienced teacher and enjoy Ayurvedic and holistic therapies, there's a fantastic programme of optional activities to help you experience the best of Costa Rica and build lifelong bonds with other yogis and fellow international travellers.

Location

Our location

The retreat's beautiful eco-resort can be found on Star Mountain, Mal Pais on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula which has some of the best beaches and jungle locations in Costa Rica.

The first stage of your journey will probably be a flight to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.

Accommodation

The eco-friendly jungle lodge has five guest rooms with private bathrooms, keeping it intimate, quiet and low-impact. It has a beautiful swimming pool, yoga shala immersed in a jungle setting and a lounge-dining area and terraces which are ideal for relaxing and practising yoga and meditation. There are hammocks to relax in and free wi-fi all around the property.

Guest rooms are arrayed on a hillside and are fronted by a sitting porch which looks out into the beautiful flower garden where butterflies and hummingbirds fly endlessly. There are four twin rooms which are spacious, simple and warmly decorated, featuring private bathrooms with a hot shower, mini-fridge, room safes and ceiling fans.

The lodge Star Mountain is an intimate and peaceful jungle lodge set in flowering gardens within a 90-hectare private reserve next to Cabo Blanco National Park. With its rich diversity of plants, trees and wildlife, the extensive property forms a continuous stretch of forest which is Costa Rica's longest established nature reserve.

Here you will find a mosaic of jungle, rolling hills, mountains and creeks, some lookout points with panoramic views of the pacific ocean and beaches of Mal Pais. Discover fascinating jungle wildlife and nature within the resort's private mile-and-a-half long jungle trail - on foot or horseback.

Activities

Yoga

Each morning before breakfast (except on arrival and departure days) we will practice yoga and meditation usually from 7.45 to 9.15am and some afternoons, on a 64-square metre teak platform with the sounds of birds and monkeys as a musical background.

The lodge is a truly spiritual haven, the location is a serene and secluded environment in which to relax and renew — an extraordinary slice of the lush Costa Rican dry tropical rain forest. Your time here will rejuvenate you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Holistic treatments

Holistic treatments are a significant feature of Sunflower Retreats' path to wellness and complement the yoga we practice. We have a wide range of treatments, as in a spa, but we differ in that we use only natural, organic products and take a holistic approach in our sessions. A brochure describing these relaxing, healing and rejuvenating therapies will be given to you when you arrive. You can book with our qualified practitioner each day at breakfast-time when they will be available to discuss treatments and help you to choose the perfect one.

Nature tours & bird watching

Our property is adjacent to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve but has significantly less foot traffic. The jungle lodge's 225-acre private reserve allows learning about the jungle's medicinal plants and exotic animals and is an excellent launching point for bird tours. We also arrange visits to The Montezuma Waterfalls located in a tropical rainforest, and guided tours can be booked each day at breakfast-time. We know you'll love a visit to the butterfly farm too.

Fishing

Fish for tuna, snapper, mahi-mahi and many other species, near Cabo Blanco island, with one of the local fishermen.

Walks and treks

Included in your yoga holiday is a free guided walk on Sunday, after morning yoga and breakfast. The trail is led by a guide and snakes through the private 225-acre reserve which has abundant water sources and medicinal plants. The evergreen trees attract many animals.

Surfing & paddleboarding
- €45
Nearby San Teresa is a popular beach location and the area has some of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica and inside the Cabo Blanco nature reserve in Mal Pais there is a wonderful beach ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Surf and paddle board rentals can be arranged at breakfast each morning. Surfing and Paddle boarding lessons for beginners cost from $50 for two hours.
Horse riding
- €30
The Jungle Lodge has its own stables so horse riding can be booked at anytime. Let the horses to be your gentle guides through mountains, jungle and beaches for a sunset ride. Depending on the rider's level, various tours are offered. Riding can be booked at daily at breakfast-time and costs from $40 for a two hour ride.

Menu

A delicious breakfast of local fruit (papaya, mangos, pineapples), fresh yoghurt, cereal, coffee or tea, eggs, toast with jam and honey is served after yoga practise each day and on the morning of the departure day.

Delicious dinners of healthy blue zone cuisine are included in the price five times within a six-night stay and two times within a four-night stay.

The food served is mainly vegetarian and vegan but includes some local fresh fish dishes. The food is locally-sourced.

The lodge also has a maid service which you can book at breakfast-time for when you want a snack or drink during the day, or if you decide not to join the visit to a local restaurant.
