You will be staying at the beautiful Costa Dulce. The property boasts of a beautiful open air 900-square foot yoga studio, large kitchen and dining area, lounge and bar, and plenty of common spaces, all just a few steps from the amazing surf. It includes five bungalows with private bathrooms, two bungalows with shared bathrooms, and two cabins with private bathrooms. Mosquito nets are available in all rooms upon request.


On this retreat, you will wake up to fresh pressed juices, organic coffee and teas, and a beautiful Vinyasa yoga class to awaken the mind and body. Following this is a deliciously prepared Nicaraguan breakfast, free time to explore, hike, swim, meditate, get a massage, or just enjoy a few hours of rest and recreation. You will have fun group workshop on most afternoons as well as an evening yoga class to wind down after your exciting day living in paradise.

Yoga and surfing are so closely connected that during this yoga retreat, you will spend a few hours learning to surf with a group lesson. It makes for a fun time to let your hair down and learn how to ride the waves. If you are already a surfer, you are encouraged to take full advantage of the perfect surf and three surf breaks right outside.

You will have unlimited access to four great surf spots within steps of the accommodation as well as a private open-air yoga studio with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, so you don't need to be in a car or on a boat to get what you want. You will take an amazing boat day trip to a world-class surf spot just north of the location. You will also take 4 x 4 trips to nearby surf spots that are equally remote and beautiful.

The surf

The private break is a step away from the surf house. The closest surf spot listed is Playa Maderas. There is a right-hand point directly in front of the house, multiple peaks on the beach, which are great for learning, and a left-hand river-mouth. Chances are you'll have it all to yourself. For the more experienced surfers, the wedging Playa Yankee is a 10-minute walk away.

You will always find the swell with a Landcruiser truck and 15 feet panga. If there's a wave there, you will be taken by guides who have intimate knowledge of where and when to be for your surf session.
