MedTreks Costa Rica Surf & Yoga Retreat
Wake up to the sounds of the waves and birdsong in the jungle. Spend the morning practicing meditation, yoga, or doing a morning movement workout on the three miles of white sand beach. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the boutique cafés in Nosara. Spend the afternoon participating in one of several different yoga classes (more below!) or enjoy lounging by the pool with a book. Evenings are for sunsets, salsa classes, or candlelight yoga!
Nosara is located in a tropical heaven of mangroves, lush vegetation, and abundant wildlife. The pristine and undeveloped coastline creates a beautiful backdrop for the amazing sunsets. On the MedTreks trip, there will be optional activities to kayak the mangroves, zip-line through the jungle, or hike to a local waterfall.
Our home for the week is located on Playa Guiones, known for its consistent and friendly surfing conditions, 365 days a year. Silky white sand and warm crystalline waters make this a perfect surfing location for novices and advanced surfers alike. No large resorts, no high-rise buildings… just peace.
Between the warm waters, the coastal temperatures, and the sounds of nature, this place is incredibly relaxing and a perfect opportunity to spend a week focusing on restoring balance and rejuvenating your body, mind, and soul…. Expect yoga, surf, meditation, breathwork, swimming, hiking, and nutritious foods.
