Hotel Las Tortugas

About This Center

Hotel Las Tortugas is a small, Eco-touristic Surf and Yoga Retreat destination located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Since prehistoric times, Playa Grande has been one of the world’s principle nesting beaches for the Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle. Louis Wilson, the founder of Hotel Las Tortugas, was instrumental in preserving Playa Grande as one of the last functioning nesting areas in the world for this now highly-endangered species.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
