      Blissful in every way! ❤

    This way my first solo trip overseas and I did an incredible amount of research before braving the adventure. El Sabanero was the first place that come up as I searched. The reviews spoke highly of the beauty, charm and warmth experienced there. So after looking at other options my heart kept bringing me back to El Sabanero. I contacted Kurt the owner so many times with so many questions and he so graciously set my worries at easy. When I arrived I felt completely welcomed, safe and loved by all. The property is an enchanting sanctuary of nature, incredible food, most amazing Yoga classes and new friends. I made amazing deep connections with everyone I met there and feel so grateful and overjoyed for choosing El Sabenero Eco Lodge for this, one of my most blissful adventure. Kurt and Karin thank you for being amazing hosts!! ❤

      Hidden Paradise!!!

    El Sabanero makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive! I have traveled to Costa Rica Several times and specifically to visit El Sabanero Eco Lodge for its beautiful grounds, tranquil atmosphere and it’s caring and attentive staff! Kurt (the owner) is a wonderful man who cares deeply that each and every guest has a unique and memorable experience. He is always available, and even when traveling alone you feel like you have a friend in Kurt! The Yoga teachers are also very unique (no 2 classes are alike), so for the Yogis traveling to the eco lodge you will not be disappointed! If I was looking for a day of adventure, relaxation or just sleeping by the beautiful pool, I was accommodated! I Can’t wait to go back.

      Amazing experience & best yoga retreat in Costa Rica!

    From the moment I arrived at El Sabanero, I was treated with love & kindess! The hosts- Kurt & Harold had everything all set up with delicious healthy meals, an oasis with your private cabin with hammock just outside overlooking the amazing views. Adventures & shuttles all set up for you for each day! I had the most amazing time for my 50th & the memory, friends & yoga are etched in my heart. I found my yearly retreat and second home at El Sabanero! I would recommend anyone who is looking for a wonderful yoga retreat that fills your soul!

Thank you!

Why Retreat?

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

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
