Imagine leaving behind the hectic fast pace of everyday life to restore your energy, strengthen your body, and relax your mind amid lush jungle in the sunshine with tranquil 80-degree ocean gulf waters lapping at your doorstep. That's what a Costa Rica yoga vacation can do for you.
Sounds good, doesn't it?
Why not make your next yoga class a yoga vacation in paradise at Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge in Costa Rica.
The remote eco-lodge near the Osa Peninsula is beachfront on the picturesque Pacific gulf of Golfo Dulce, set on a 165-acre private reserve adjoining the Piedras Blancas National Park. Breathtakingly beautiful, this is the place to go to for secluded beaches, lush rainforest, exotic wildlife, and getting away from it all to relax.
Yoga at Nicuesa Lodge is a sensory experience. The all-natural tropical wood yoga deck is positioned on the beach at the gulf’s edge, framed by palm trees and jungle, and covered from the elements. Monkeys and Scarlet Macaws play in the trees. Dolphins and whales frolic offshore. The sounds of nature surround you. Hear the splash of waves. Feel the caress of ocean breezes. Exhale stress and slow down.
