I first visited Peace Retreat Costa Rica 5 years ago. It was simple, I looked for "Peace" and I needed to "Retreat" from my busy life in Canada. From someone I knew I heard that Costa Rica is known for pristine nature and friendly people and has quite of few Yoga resorts. So I typed in the Google Search "Peace Retreat Costa Rica", and voila - it popped right up; really, it was that easy. I guess when you know what you are looking for it ain't too hard to find - thanks Google lol From then, I made contact and saw lovely cabina's and property and knew this is where I need to be. I booked the trip few days later and it was even better than I had imagined. The resort is located in the jungle, so off main roads, which makes it perfect as there is no pollution of any kind - noise, cars, lights etc. - it is just pure nature that surrounds you. = Cars only enter the resort if they are bringing new guests, fresh fruit or bread - all great by the ways. The property is surrounded by trees and is full of various birds and howling monkeys that start and end the days with, well - howls. I've visited 5 times and always stayed in the same cabina, and I will continue to go back; they also have fully equipped rooms if you prefer that style. For me cabina is somewhere between tent and a room, and make stay more enjoyable as if feels like you are outside. The owner and operator Kevin is a great human and phenomenal Yoga Teacher; his partner Serena is no different. You don't meet these types of people everyday, that is for sure. Kevin is always around either teaching classes, running courses, or mingling with guests. Jessica, Angela, and Marcus are few of the nicest locals you will meet who take care of the guest and the property. They are always great to see and are definitely add value to the place.The property is classified as Wellness Resort and focus is on relaxation and well-being - you will get very relaxed there. The beach, Playa Negra is phenomenal and is located a nice 30 min walk from the resort - great daily exercise to build appetite. It has a long stretch of glass like walkway into the Pacific ocean which is clean and warm. The beach and Costa Rica is very safe. Everyone you see, whether walking, on a motorcycle or in a car will wave at you and smile - it really is amazing. There are numerous beaches around but you need a car of other mean of transportion to see them; for me Playa Negra offers more than enough. There you can set a camp on the beach or move closer to the trees if you need shade. If you feel like a walk, you can take a hike along the beach for about 1.5 km over white and clean sand listening to large surf style waves crashing at volcano formation of rocks. The portion of flat area of the beach is actually charcoal color as it is made of crushed volcano stones; I regularly bathe myself in it but no ones minds lol There are 2 stores in case you want to buy and cook your own food, and few restaurants including food being deliciously prepared by cooks at the Peace Retreat. The resort also offer massage, hiking trips, free bicycles to use, and trips to local touristy town of Tamarindo. You can do yoga twice a day with talented instructors, or on your own in 2 gorgeous studios at any time, day or night. I could go all day, but I think you get the picture. Peace Retreat will blow your mind and make you realize why you need to do something like this every year. See you there...in November. Pura Vida.

Having never traveled out of the US before and certainly never alone, I had the absolute BEST experience in Costa Rica. I was nervous on the plane ride there and questioned why I was traveling so far and alone, but from the moment I arrived I felt nothing but comfort and happiness. When I first arrived at Peace Retreat in Los Pargos, I was completely overwhelmed with the beauty that was surrounding. Bountiful Mango trees and monkeys everywhere, so so many green trees, and a super refreshing spa like swimming pool. Jess (and lola!) at Peace Retreat was so incredibly inviting and helpful in answering every question I had prior to and during my stay. Yoga with Kevin is something i'll always hold close to my heart! Oh and don't get me started about mi amiga, Lila who works in Peace's on site restaurant, Salud <3 I felt SO at home at Peace Retreat and was sad to leave after only 7 days. I loved absolutely everything about my stay, from the sounds of the monkeys, birds, and rain, to the breath taking *no filter needed* sunsets. The retreat location is remote enough to feel as though you are on a true adventure but has absolutely all of the amenities that you'd need on site. Shops, restaurants, and the beach are all a quick walk or bike ride away. I will be forever grateful for my time spent at Peace Retreat and cannot wait to return!

I came across Peace Retreat 4 years ago when I was looking for a non-touristy place that I can rewind in nature and get my thoughts together. I was looking to "retreat" and find some "peace" - and I knew Costa Rica was a place that offers some of the cleanest and preserved nature and gorgeous beaches coupled with warm and welcoming people. Peace Retreat is one of a kind place, where you will find that simple life is what we need and really want. It has been my annual ritual to go there just before the full season starts (end of October) and wind down the summer and prepare for the winter ahead. 25 minutes away is one of the most beautiful beaches you will see, a jewel of Los Pargos area - Playa Negra with flat glass like surface of about 200 yards easing into the ocean with surf like waves; and full of pockets with shade from nearby treas. The Retreat itself is phenomenal; great location in the middle of the woods, off the main road but still close enough to the center of the small city; pool, large kitchen and dinning area, two yoga studio, plenty of washrooms and showers, all in serene and well kept area. Kevin and Serena, owners and managers of this great place, are friendly, present, and welcoming. The staff supporting the operation is joy to see and interact with. Always smiling and happy to help, whether it is a word in Spanish, direction, or suggestion. Peace Retreat offers some of the best Yoga classes and courses, if you are looking to advance your practice, but you can also do your own thing and use studios for your personal practice. Many return, and if you decide to go, you will too.
