About This Center

The Rio Surf'n'Stay is a retreat center 45 minutes away from Copacabana. The house is situated in a beautiful, super green garden, only 2 minutes away from one of the best surf spots of Rio de Janeiro. It's the perfect escape from the city and our daily routines.

The philosophy of the Rio Surf'n'Stay is, to let people leave as friends instead of letting them leave "just" as guests. Their aim is to build a community, where people from all walks of life can come, stay, leave and come back.

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.
