Safe Journey

We make sure that you arrive safely:

  • private transport from the airport to our door step with professional and masked drivers
  • help at the border crossing if you’re coming through Costa Rica so you don’t spend any more time than necessary there
  • support with any arrangements you need, like the COVID-19 test for your return travel

You book the flights. We arrange everything else.

Safe Space

This is how we create a safe space for everyone who comes here:

  • Fresh airflow everywhere: All indoor spaces are screened, allowing for fresh air at all times.
  • Staff lives on site or locally: All our staff either lives on site or in very close proximity to Costa Dulce.
  • Cleanliness everywhere: We disinfect all spaces and areas on a regular basis. Yoga equipment is cleaned before every class and at least twice a day. Take advantage of our free laundry service how often you want. 
  • You decide about your distance: All common areas and the yoga shalas are very spacious and allow for as much distance as you’d like to keep. Our teachers respect your distance and are trained to guide you without hands-on assists if you wish.


Yoga and wellness is the key to take care of ourselves and our surroundings.

If you’ve ever dreamed of falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves, swimming in a beautiful waterfall or doing yoga in the middle of the jungle over blue-green surf, Costa Dulce is the place to make it happen. It is truly paradise and I cannot imagine a more beautiful or welcoming place to experience the jungle and the sea.’

Costa Dulce is a Beachfront Eco Retreat on the southern pacific coast of Nicaragua.
Spread across a jungle hill rising up from the beach, it is the perfect place to reconnect to yourself and nature.
