Surfing and Yoga Retreat in Montezuma

All difficulty levels
Breakfast included

Montezuma Yoga is located at Hotel Los Mangos, just outside the village of Montezuma. Unlike other beach towns in Costa Rica, Montezuma has a strong health and eco oriented community and is not full of real estate development. Our rivers and beaches are clean and still full of unspoiled nature and wildlife. This is the perfect place for women travelling solo and you will make friends easy, if you like.

Yoga and surfing in Costa Rica for all levels

You will be practicing daily Vinyasa flow yoga classes in the open, wooden pavilion looking out to the ocean and listening to the sound of birds, monkeys, and the ocean. Just drop in, there are mats and props available for you. Combine the relaxing and stretching benefits of yoga with the fun of surfing the waves with our skilled instructor Mauricio on some of the most beautiful beaches. The beaches of Montezuma are great also for beginners and you will feel safe and supported no matter what your level or surf experience is, and feel a big change after this week.

You will be staying at Hotel Los Mangos, it is located on the beautiful Nicoya Peninsula, in the town of Montezuma. This small, hip village remains one of the most popular destinations on the coast, with its beautiful beaches, great nightlife, and abundant natural beauty.

The hotel offers accommodation in 10 rooms and 9 bungalows in a beautiful mango orchard looking out to the ocean. The owner has designed the bungalows to resemble the architecture found in Bali, connected by walking roads, the buildings have an octagonal structure, made of "Nazareno" wood with cathedral ceilings and wide roofed porches. You can relax by the pool, watch the monkeys, hike to the waterfalls or take a horseback ride along the beaches.

Montezuma Yoga also offers private accommodation in their romantic Artist Loft and luxury Tree Loft depending on availability. Rates for accommodation in the Artist Loft with private bath is the same as the bungalow in Hotel Los Mangos, for accommodation in the Tree loft with private bath and kitchen please add 20 USD extra per day.

Both properties are located in a quiet residential area about one-kilometer up the hill from the town and beaches. You can walk, catch rides or organize your own transport via taxi or 4x4 ATV. Montezuma Yoga is happy to set it up for you.

Montezuma remains one of the most popular destinations on the coast, and many people like to stay for at least several days, to enjoy not only the beaches but also the nearby nature reserves, like Cabo Blanco National Parks and Cur wildlife reserve; islands, like Tortuga which is the best known in the rea. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the monkeys playing in the forest canopy, start the day with an outstanding sunrise, and hike to cascading waterfalls. Cobano town is really close to Montezuma, here you can find the national bank, a clinic for emergencies, and a pharmacy.


  • Cobano town, 8 kilometers
  • Playa Tambor, 20 kilometers

Surf Beach Playa Grande:

The classes will be held at Playa Grande, a stunning beach within the Romelia National Wildlife Refuge. Playa Grande is protected from the waves and currents of the open ocean, which allows the sandbar to be maintained all year round and thus guarantees good conditions for surfing all year round.

Other famous surf spots on the west side of the peninsula, like Santa Teresa/mail Pais are facing the open pacific and are harder to surf, esp. in the rainy season when the sand is washed and the stones come out.

Please note that Playa Grande cannot be accessed by vehicles, which makes it also one of the last true pure untouched and protected paradise beaches, where you always just meet a handful of other people. The only way to access Playa Grande is through a beautiful path along the beach, called “Sendero el Sueño Verde“ (path of the green dream).

The instructor will tell you lots of great stories about the culture and history of our place, so no worries, the 25-minute walk will be interesting, fun, and easier every day. And no worries, the surf boards are stored at Refugio Romelia, so you just have to carry your personal items.
