About This Event
There is a reason that the Osa lays claim to the origin of Kula. The peninsula is one of the most bio-diverse places on earth and has changed the lives of many who have walked curiously into its lush jungle canopy. The pristine rainforests and rugged beauty of this secluded natural wonderland will instantly remove you from the trappings of your NYC life (if you can gaze away from that iPhone screen!) in order to create the much needed space that all urban dwellers need. Leave the concrete, chapped lips, and unmet New Year’s expectations behind, and join us as we TRULY unplug and prepare for 2020 by centering ourselves around clear intentions and space for creation. Warning: epiphanies have been known to happen, in the most unexpected of ways! Who this retreat is for: any seeker who gravitates towards the rustic, unadulterated, glitz free nooks of the world, and welcomes living as close to nature as they can get. Prepare to spend the week living on the wild side, most likely in your bathing suit and with bare feet.
Who this retreat is not for: Anyone looking for fluffy white towels, air conditioning, and/or a Costa Rica magnet to hang on your fridge.
Lodging options: – Ramp up your nature experience in a Jungle Yurt (thatch roofed platform tent) – Open air beach front houses (private room or shared accommodation).
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

What's Not IncludedAirfare, spa treatments, alcoholic beverages, taxi from Puerto Jimenez airstrip to retreat venue. (You can share taxi cost with other retreaters, generally).
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.
