About us

Rios Tropicales adventure Yoga retreat is the perfect getaway for all the Yoga and adventure lovers. It’s a retreat like no other in which you will step out of your comfort zone and try the many exciting activities the Costa Rican nature has to offer. Join us February 2018 in this unforgettable trip in which Claudia Gallo will guide you through her beautiful Yoga sessions and our variety of adventure and ecology guides will guide you through the rest!

What does “ecolodge” really mean? At the Rios Tropicales Lodge, it means being surrounded by the beauty and splendor of primary rainforest without having to sacrifice luxury or comfort. Equally important, we didn’t sacrifice our gorgeous environment to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Sustainably built using reclaimed wood and hydroelectric powered, our ecolodge is a model of ecotourism (we even have numerous awards to prove it).

At our ecolodge, you can relax, explore and enjoy all that Costa Rica offers on our 2,000-acre private reserve at the mouth of the Pacuare Gorge. We have more than 40 miles of hiking trails and numerous waterfalls, streams and pools. Our open-air dining pavilion and lounge let you watch the local wildlife and listen to the sounds only found in a tropical paradise. (

During your stay at Rios Tropicales ecolodge there will be NO access to Wi-Fi. This will allow us to immerse completely into nature and into the Yoga practice to fully recharge and align our energetic fields. 

**During the Horse back riding day and in some hikes you might get reception on your phones if you buy a local sim card. Any emergency we do have contact 24hrs with the main office and the operation center. 

** All levels welcome, no experience in Yoga needed
