Costa Rica Yoga Retreat
January 27- February 3, 2024
Playa Grande, Guanacaste - Costa Rica

Join Lucy Pirner, Tracey Mortensen, Kelsey Kaufman, and Scott Evanoff in Costa Rica for a relaxing and nourishing experience to remember.  In this mostly-inclusive tropical retreat, we will awaken and explore the senses to feel fully alive. Through yoga, breath work, mediation, Yoga Nidra, rest and immersive experiences, you will tune into the gifts of life to increase greater ease, meaning, connection and happiness.

We specialize in creating luxury retreats where you have to do nothing! Sit back and let us arrange everything for you from meals to adventures.  There is enough free time in the schedule for you to relax by the pool, play in the waves, explore the area or hang out with friends. Everything is an invitation, not an obligation. Our past retreats have proven to be life changing experiences, with attention to detail, fun, comfort, and ease.  

About our Location

Experience the feeling of unbound freedom and tranquility at Las Velas Blancas, surrounded by 70 acres of pristine forest facing the breaking surf of Costa Rica’s Pacific Ocean. 

The property boasts five two-bedroom/bathroom bungalows, six-bedroom house (Casa Guayacan), two-story beachfront lounge and yoga deck, swimming pool, poolside grill/ dining, and a common kitchen. Las Velas Blancas blends the designs of nature with relaxed comfort, simplicity, and beauty-assuring exclusive access to the entire property in absolute privacy.

The Bungalows: Each of the five beachfront bungalows consists of two master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a/c, a fully equipped kitchenette, and a covered deck with living and dining areas. Each unit has it’s own private grounds and beach access.

Casa Guayacan: At ground level are the fully-equipped kitchen with pantry, dining and living area, and two master suites. On the second level: four suites and an open living area for relaxing and watching the spectacular ocean views after a day of play and activities. The beachfront garden has a covered area with chaises and hammocks and direct access to the beach. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, a/c and face the ocean.

The large swimming pool is at the heart of the amenities area, with the main kitchen, grill and dining facilities on the north side and the magnificent open two story lounge facing the ocean, where a delightful fresh breeze flows constantly and you will be witness to the silent beauty of the most spectacular sunsets.

A short five-minute walk on the beach takes you to the estuary, the natural barrier that separates the pristine beach of Playa Grande from the lively surf town of Tamarindo, where you will find a wide variety of restaurants, cafés, shops, banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, night life etc. Pangas (small boats) are always available to ferry you across for a $1 fee/pp. The crossing takes under 1 minute. By road, Tamarindo is about 25-30 minutes from Las Velas Blancas.

Meals are prepared by a private chef and enjoyed in the poolside dining area.

Liberia International Airport (LIR) is only 43 miles from Las Velas Blancas (about 45 minute drive, depending on traffic).

The property is guarded and maintained by staff, who are available to assist at all times.

Playa Grande, Guanacaste – Costa Rica

Located along the north Pacific Coast in the Guanacaste province, Playa Grande is part of the Las Baulas National Park.  A nesting site of the leather back turtles, this is a highly protected region, making it a very secluded beach with minimal human intervention. 

Tamarindo is right next to Playa Grande, and can be accessed by crossing the estuary that divides both beaches. There you will find a very active night life and a vast variety of restaurants and commercial venues. Read more about the area attractions here.
