Boca Sombrero Yoga & Surf Retreat

About This Center

Boca Sombrero is an exclusive ocean front paradise embedded in the amazing rainforest settings of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. 

This center specializes in group events that usually combine yoga practice with surfing perfect waves in the lush tropical setting of our beach.  Our bamboo framed, thatched roof yoga deck is open air and located just steps from the beach.  The surf in front of the property is great for beginner to intermediate surfers.

Our wide range of accommodations allows you to choose one of our luxurious beach front villas or one of our more modestly priced thatch roof tent platforms.

We slept 3 nights in this beautiful beach casa and it was amazing. You have to drive half an hour on a dusty bumpy dirtroad from Puerto Jiminez, but it's totally worth it. The house is just a few steps away from the beach and felt really luxury. ~Liesbeth M

Venue Highlights

The Osa Peninsula and the Golfo Dulce are great places for outdoor activities. Learning to surf in the private setting of our beach, on long and gentle rolling waves, has always been one of the major attractions for our guests.

We also host a beautiful kayak tour which, once out on the ocean, will offer you a whole new perspective on the steep rainforest-covered hills surrounding Boca Sombrero. These tours offer fantastic opportunities to view marine life, such as schools of tropical fish, sea turtles, and dolphins which often play close by the boats. December to May offers the chance to see Humpback and Blue Whales breeching as they come into the gulf to give birth to their calves. If you are really lucky, you could go for a ride on the dorsal fin of a Whale Shark.

Yoga practice has a long tradition here on the Osa Peninsula. Our stunning new Yoga deck accommodates up to 35 people and is situated about 50 feet from the beach.

Warm water year-round, and gentle rolling waves. Boca Sombrero is an excellent place to spend your surf vacation.
