SwellWomen Costa Rica Surf & Yoga Retreat June ’22
With Lulu Agan ~ Chief Officer of Bliss
June 5 - 11, 2022
Your Bliss Awaits in Costa Rica
Fall asleep to the lull of distant waves. Awake to the sunrise and the call of howler monkeys. As you make your way to the main house for meals, you’re sure to be greeted by wild monkeys, toucans, macaws, sloths, and other creatures of the rainforest.
Our retreat will be hosted at a beautiful private villa in an extraordinary jungle setting nestled in the Rainforest Reserve 100 feet walk from the beach. We offer comfortable open-air bungalows with a casual elegance surrounded by lush gardens and a hundred acres of rainforest reserve. Each bungalow is equipped with 2 x queen beds, has a ceiling fan (no air-conditioning), a private bathroom, and a private terrace with garden & jungle views.
Easily explore uncrowded tropical beaches and winding forest trails, or simply relax and wait for the monkeys and macaws to parade through the native fruit trees that front the property.
Imagine your surf lessons taking place at our secret uncrowded surf spot suitable for all levels including absolute beginners combined with restorative yoga designed to bring out the Soul Surfer deep inside you. These practices will give you tools not only to enhance your Surfing and Yoga but will provide opportunities to observe, grow and evolve off your mat and in your everyday life.
Additionally, many other activities and guided tours can be arranged such as kayaking, horseback riding, sportfishing, hiking, rappelling, even gold panning. Of course, doing “nothing” on a vacation is a luxury in itself. Whether adventuring or decompressing, we provide a great variety of local fare to nourish your body and soul and prepare you for your next discovery.
Your Surf & Yoga Adventure is the perfect setting to relax, engage, explore, surf, sunbathe and stargaze. Now doesn’t that sound blissful?
