Costa Rica Retreats

costa rica

Wellness-based travel to Costa Rica has increased immensely in the past decade, during which time many retreat centres have been established throughout this beautiful country. And for good reason! From the mountains to the jungle to the blue waters, Costa Rica is renowned for its culture of ‘Pura Vida’ (literally, ‘pure life’).

Osa Peninsula (recognized as a ‘Blue Zone’) and Nicoya Peninsula are particularly sought-after retreat destinations.

A word of warning: Some of the people who attend yoga retreats in Costa Rica never leave, and instead become part of the growing expat community! (Surfboard not included.)

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
