“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

Costa Dulce is made 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

LEAD A YOGA RETREAT
Costa Dulce has hosted numerous successful returning retreats and teacher trainings. Lead your next retreat next to the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean surrounded by jungle. Get off the beaten path and back to your roots with eco-lodge living in the jungle, on the beach. Reserve space for a private retreat or apply to become a guest yoga retreat leader or workshop leader. We are open to co-create and facilitate in our Yoga School.
Connect with the purpose of teaching, while enriching your students in the vibrant Cost Dulce community. Ask us about the many ways you can support and give back to the local community. Embrace the power of giving back as a group by learning -and possibly contributing- to sea turtle preservation, beach clean-ups, ecosystem restoration, and our educational projects.
