Yoga Retreat Info Package:
March 25-April 1, 2020
What is it?
Join Megan Simpson E-RYT 500 and Sandra Van Dong-DeLaRonde RYT-200 for 8 days and 7 nights in vibrant Costa Rica this March at the warmest, most welcoming Eco Lodge in Guanacaste. The view from the lodge is bright, beautiful and full of life. There is a reason that this is Yogigos 7th time returning to El Sabanero Eco Lodge located on the pacific side of the country, about 15 minutes from the chilled out surf town of Tamarindo.
Go for a walk around the lodge and you are guaranteed to see Louis; the resident iguana, howler monkeys, and countless colourful birds. We have actually included several beach excursions into your retreat so that you get the opportunity to visit a variety of the local beaches including Tamarindo beach and Playa Avellanas. There will also be opportunities for additional excursions if you choose such as snorkelling at Playa Conchal; a beach made of seashells, zip lining, or SUP yoga at Playa Negra.
Yes the beaches are amazing and all unique, yes you are really going to fall in love with the chill “Pura Vida” vibe in this area, but the main reason we repeatedly come back to El Sabanero is for the absolute best culinary duo that will prepare for you the most delicious vegetarian meals that you will be dreaming about until the next time you return. This is definitely a retreat not to miss.

3 delicious vegetarian meals daily
2 yoga classes daily

Please DO NOT book your flight until shuttle times have been confirmed.
We will be staying at the remote property of El Sabanero Eco Lodge located on the pacific side of the country, about 15 minutes from the chilled out surf town of Tamarindo. El Sabanero is tucked up in the mountains looking down on the Cañafistula valley which means you get the benefit of the most incredible view, while being sandwiched in between a series of the countries most beautiful beaches. Enjoy the magic of the jungle while being a short drive away from the beaches. The yoga shala faces the valley where from your evening yoga class you will get to watch Costa Rica’s classic sunsets.
3 delicious healthy, vegetarian meals will be offered daily, prepared lovingly using local ingredients. Please notify me of any dietary restrictions or allergies upon booking so that arrangements can be made.

comfortable clothes for yoga
Extra Things to Note:
Safety - Costa Rica is a very clean and safe place to visit, and the property is also very safe. The people are friendly and there aren't major weather events (like earthquakes or hurricanes) that happen here regularly. As always while traveling, be cautious and smart. Avoid walking alone at night and do not carry large amounts of money with you.
Currency - Costa Rica uses both USD and Cordobas. It is a good idea to bring some of each currency. You may pay in USD but get change in Cordobas.
Electricity/Plugs - generally 110v and the same prongs as North America, so you will not need an adaptor.
Departure Tax - There is a $29USD departure tax when leaving Costa Rica. Some airlines include this cost, but some don’t, so you may be charged this upon departure from Liberia International Airport.
