This 10 day adventure has volcanos, cloud forests, hot springs, bird life, beaches, surf, and yoga making up the sweet pura vida Costa Rica is known for.
Are you ready for an adventure?
You will start your Costa Rica yoga adventure in Arenal for 3 nights, staying in an exclusive boutique glamping hotel that has 8 single occupancy private beautiful tents and two twin occupancy tents, all with en-suite bathrooms and a veranda. With a yoga shala, pool and private grounds, relax here after an exhilarating day of adventure.
In Fortuna, you will hike around the Arenal volcano and enjoy the thermal hot springs one day and the next day explore the jungle on the hanging bridges when the animals are most active. With yoga twice a day to balance and restore and friendly staff you will be looked after.
Next stop, Nosara! Your home from home for the next 7 nights. Based on the Pacific coast, you will be staying in a gorgeous private luxury villa that is only a few minutes walk from the beautiful surf and sand of Playa Guiones, one of the main surf and swim beaches in Nosara. Relax and enjoy the spaciousness of the main villa, the private pool with a seating area; and what is called a Rancho, a downstairs open-air dining and relaxation space with a few bedrooms located here and the yoga shala is situated on the first floor above.
Beautifully, yoga takes place in the yoga shala to the sounds of monkeys and tropical birds each morning and evening. After a delicious breakfast, take a dip in the pool or take a short walk down the beach. Maybe, relax at the villa or try surfing on one of the best surf beaches in the country. You may wish to wander into town or feel exhilarated with one of the many activities on offer in the surrounding area. Maybe zip-lining through the rainforest canopy, a quad bike tour along the coast, visiting a chocolate or coffee factory and so much more.

Men & Women
The holiday far exceeded my expectations. I am new to come on holiday by myself but immediately felt at home, looked after and part of a family. The food was delicious and have loved relaxing and reflecting in the beautiful garden in the hotel. Yoga was wonderful. I can't believe how much I have learned about myself and yoga in 10 days. I am going home so uplifted and happy. Thankyou!
Sandy – Yoga holiday
I felt I have come away transformed, healed and really connected to myself, nature my body through yoga and connected to others I formed great relationships with over the time of this yoga holiday. I feel really happy and content, unwound and very very grateful to have been part of this.
Jane – Yoga holiday
AdventureYogi offered me much more than a retreat. They gave me space to return to myself and reconnect with my wants and desires. I can’t thank the team enough for reviving my batteries, stimulating my curiosity and re-invigorating my passion for life – each and every day.
