The Wild Sun Jungle Resort is the best-kept yoga secret in Costa Rica. All of the programs are designed to reenergize, reinvigorate, and reawaken the inner you through yoga retreats.

I did a lot of research when booking my trip to Costa Rica. I was looking for a unique experience involving yoga and ultimately chose Wild Sun Jungle Resort because it was advertised to be “a vacation of a lifetime” where I would have yoga every morning, followed by wildlife volunteering and have included excursions in the area. It sounded like the best of all worlds. The work they do with animals is incredible and you can tell they are truly dedicated to rehabilitating the wildlife there in hopes that they will all be released back into the wild. I am proud of the work that I did there. That being said, I do not feel that this experience should be advertised as a yoga retreat or a resort. We had 90minute yoga sessions 6:30-8am Monday-Friday (the instructors were awesome), and then we had 8/9 hours of outdoor manual labor - either 9am-6pm or 12pm-8pm. You get breaks for meals and you may finish early, but not always. You cannot put a price on the fact that you worked to help wildlife- those are memories that I will cherish forever. The other volunteers were amazing as were the wildlife staff, chef, and cleaning ladies. I do not regret going, because the memories I made will last a lifetime, but I do feel like I was mislead as to what kind of experience I paid for.

Very rustic. I loved being in the jungle and handling the animals. I also really enjoyed all my instructors. The 1 on 1 attention was great!
