Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre is one of Nicaragua's premier eco-lodges with a strong focus on building community and environmental awareness in the surrounding communities. Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre grew very naturally and did so in the middle of nature. Each of the 11 bungalows and cabins has been designed with surrounding trees as well as plants taken into account in some cases the trees grow through the building and all have been built to take advantage of the local Papagayo winds to keep you cool without using too much electricity.

The eco-lodge gray water is processed and used to water Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre's garden and grow food for guests. When Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre says rustic luxury, think a modern-day Robinson Crusoe house. No televisions or air conditioning. There are bugs around, Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre is in the jungle after all and don't be surprised when you come across wildlife close to the resort or passing through. You may get one of the ocean-view cabins for you alone or share one of the ocean-view cabins.


You will have two daily yoga at one of Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre's two epic yoga shalas or relax your body and mind with our daily beauty treatments in our natural spa. You can also take part in the turtle conservation program, learn how to help protect endangered turtles, or you can take action as a volunteer in the turtle hatchery, and, after another beautiful day, nourish yourself at the Dulce Cocina, where you will be served delicious healthy food. After that, have a cold one while you watch the sun go down.

Daily instruction from Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre's local surf guides will take you to the next level with your surfing. A surf photographer will get some great pics of you that will help you improve and also give you something to bring home. Waves are often great for beginners right out front but if you need, you'll be taken to the beach with the right waves for you.


This retreat will take place at Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre in Rivas Department, Nicaragua.
