“Costa Dulce is hands down the best retreat center I’ve worked with. I co-hosted a two-week yoga teacher training and simultaneously ran two yoga retreats. Not only did everyone leave with that sort of beach-dream bliss, but we all left with a sense that we were part of the Costa Dulce family.” – Diana

Our remote location makes this eco-retreat centre a desirable location for retreat leaders and guests to visit from all over the world.
While most of our private groups are yoga retreats, we have also hosted surf groups, private groups of friends and family for celebrtions, and even private corporate retreats with young entrepreneurs. We believe the unique beauty of the nature that surrounds us has something to offer everyone, especially those looking for a space to heal and transform.

Costa Dulce is composed of two retreat centers, both carefully designed to host the perfect beachfront retreat experience.

We have developed a partner system that allows us to use joint resources to ensure we have a full and successful retreat and a win/win situation as partners.
The policies are set up in order to minimize the risk for the teacher and for Costa Dulce.
Costa Dulce is a magical place. 8 of us were there for a yoga/fitness/surf retreat and we felt like we were part of the community. The food is amazing, the staff are awesome, the accommodations are lovely, comfortable and clean. We were wanting for nothing. Surfing at the beach is for all levels with more advanced break a walk away. I didn’t want to leave and can’t say enough wonderful things about Costa Dulce. The mission and values focus on the local community and giving back is by far one of the strongest and most prevalent I’ve seen. – Lisa
