About This Event

Revitalize and harmonize your mind, body, and soul in Guanacaste. Enjoy the warm weather and the beautiful views of the valley. The spectacular infinity pool is at the perfect temperature all year long and the restaurant serves some of the best food in all of Costa Rica including local and international vegetarian dishes. Relax by the pool, explore the surroundings or visit the four beautiful beaches that the lodge has only a few minutes drive away and spend a week to remember in Costa Rica.

Zumba: Workouts are not a punishment and therefore, some fun workouts can also do wonders for your health. Zumba workouts are high-intensity exercise. It helps in improved cardiovascular fitness, lowered cholesterol and lowers blood sugar levels and melts belly fat quickly.

Yoga tones muscles all over your body, in balance with each other. Weight training exercises typically isolate and flex one muscle or muscle group at a time. ... Yoga increases muscle endurance because you typically hold any given pose for a period of time and repeat it several times during a yoga workout.

The retreat includes Airport transfers from Liberia Airport, daily beach transfers, Yoga two times per day, Meditation, 3 delicious vegetarian meals per day and all taxes.

For additional nights we charge a discounted USD (contact info blocked) person with all the privileges as during the retreat.

The retreat is very much for relaxing and looking after mind and body and making friends with like minded people.

"Peaceful and restorative " Kim Martin from United States Pros Loved how well I was taken care of, they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The yoga teachers were excellent and I took both the AM and PM classes often. The food Donald prepared was incredible and I was excited for it every day. Rooms are very clean and the location is lovely.

      Amazing Adventure

    This was life changing for me. The meals were delicious, the excursions are wonderful, and the whole place feels of nature and relaxation. The women I met here are going to be life long friends. This is not a five star hotel and its off the beaten path, but for this busy city girl- getting back to nature was exactly what I needed. The transportation was the deciding factor for me to book this retreat and I am so glad I did. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

      Everything you need is at El Sabanero

    I went on this trip with a friend after another friend recommended El Sabanero. We had very little time to plan, but knew we needed a vacation. This was the perfect combination - once we booked our stay and our flights we didn't think about anything else until the night before we left. Everything you need is at El Sabanero - great people, amazing food, yoga for all levels and easy access to a several different excursions or a day at the beach. I came back more relaxed and motivated than I ever had from a vacation. I went on this trip with a friend, but almost all others were solo travelers.

      incredible place, incredible people, will not disappoint!

    From the moment you walk in you’re treated like one of the family and that doesn’t stop even after you leave. You won’t find better value for accommodation, 2 yoga sessions daily and 3 delicious vegetarian meals a day. The place is beautiful and clean and the rooms are super comfortable and offer some privacy if you want to reflect on the day’s adventures or relaxation from the hammock or rocking chair on your veranda. The mountainous views and the chorus of Costa Rica’s wildlife are magical too. The place has great energy and attracts great people. We became a family and the fact I met so many people who were returning for a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th time should tell you everything you need to know. Thanks Kurt and Harold for being perfect hosts and sharing this special place with us. Thanks Donald for the food that everyone described as the “best they’ve had in CR”. Thanks Anna for the best massage I’ve ever had and for making me feel part of the family too. And to Louise, Aggie, Hector and Vivi, thanks for for the top notch yoga! Couldn’t recommend highly enough and will be back!

      Amazing

    This was truly a vacation of a life time. We will be going back next year. From the second you arrive you are greated with nothing but love and harmony. Kurt the owner was one of the happiest loving people we have ever met. He made sure you have everything you need and that you meet everyone else. We made such amazing friends. Donald the chef was such a happy loving person as well and it showed in his food. We have been trying to recreate his food since we have been home. The rooms were perfect escape from everyday life. We spent our trip making friends, relaxing in the pool, and walking down the beautiful beach nearby. The only bad thing about this place was having to leave. I wish I could give them 10 stars. This place truly

      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!
