The spacious beachfront property has been landscaped with care to promote privacy and to welcome wildlife. There are eight thatched-roof tent platforms and four houses, Casa Playa, Casa Rio, Casa Troya, and Oceanside, just steps away from the beach.
It has an open construction style that allows for a steady ocean breeze throughout the living space and provides both ocean and lush mountain views. Upstairs has a large open floor plan with a beautiful hardwood floor and a thatched-roof ceiling. This room provides three king sized beds, three single beds, and a balcony with a spectacular view of the Golfo Dulce.
Downstairs has a cozy living space, bathroom, and a detached kitchen. Both the living area and kitchen open up to the large swimming pool, deck, and lounge area. The pool has both deep and shallow area perfect for relaxing or swimming.
It is custom-finished with fine hardwoods, an open floor plan, and a beautiful thatched roof. Upstairs the house has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a king size bed and the other has a king size bed and a single bed. Downstairs, there is a central, open kitchen designed for gathering at the bar. There is a comfortable dining area and an artfully designed bathroom, detached from the main structure for privacy. The bathroom area includes a covered dipping pool, a refreshing escape from the midday sun.
It reflects the typical home design of the Osa Peninsula with its half-height walls and natural, local building materials. It has a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom downstairs and a loft partitioned into two bedrooms upstairs. The overall aesthetic of this home evokes a sense of movement as the lines of the structure resemble a wave, ship, or an animal, depending on one’s perspective. Casa Troya offers a comfortable and inspired place to spend your vacation.
Eight thatched-roof tent platforms are spread out on the magnificent 20-acre property. They are specially designed for comfort in a tropical climate. The thatched roof will keep you dry and cool, while a transparent material along the roof-line lets in light.
The platforms are outfitted with beautiful, screened Moroccan-style tents whose special fabric allows for ventilation and guarantees dulce sueños (sweet dreams). Each bungalow has a cozy porch for relaxing and a private, open-air shower adjacent. Shared bathroom facilities are nearby and conveniently located.
It is a beautiful, 1200-square-foot white beach house whose architecture is reminiscent of Mediterranean styles. It is nestled in a lush tropical garden.
Oceanside accommodates a couple with a child or three adults. The fully equipped kitchen, entirely finished in teak, is separated from the living room by a breakfast counter. Adjacent to the living room, there is an office space with bookshelves, a sofa, and desk.
Upstairs one finds the master bedroom with double sliding glass doors, a wooden sundeck, jungle balcony, and a ladder on the balcony that allows access to the rooftop. Especially during the dry season, the rooftop is the perfect place for stargazing and romantic evenings. Oceanside operates entirely on solar energy, drawing fresh water from a well. The house is located less than 80 meters from the beach, reached by a jungle trail and bamboo bridge.
The communal house on the property is the Casa Grande, a spacious home where you gather to enjoy meals. Here the professional kitchen crew prepares and serves delicious food in beautiful surroundings. Casa Grande also offers a comfortable and stylish lounge area for just hanging out. The Internet is available in the Casa Grande from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The yoga deck is a hardwood platform built with bamboo and a thatched roof. It sits in front of the beach and comfortably accommodates up to 30 people. Straps, blocks, and blankets are available. Please bring your own mat (there is a few in case someone forgets to bring one).
You will enjoy a waterfall hiking session during this retreat.

The pristine rainforests and rugged natural beauty of the Osa Peninsula make this region among the most beautiful areas in Costa Rica. It is a secluded nature wonderland, playing home to many of the country’s rare and endangered animal and bird species, including squirrel monkeys, jaguars, and other forest cats.
Boca Sombrero is located right on the beach with swimming less than 100 yards from your room, making it easy to take an early morning dip, a stroll on the beach (miles and miles of beach). The beach is very scenic, serene, and picturesque. It is very easy to find a secluded spot to sunbathe. Please be careful to use appropriate sunscreen as the sun is quite strong. If you do decide to sunbathe topless or nude, please be sensitive to the local Catholic customs of the country and be discreet.
All meals are included. The cuisine is light and delicious with an emphasis on fresh produce. Boca Sombrero's wonderful staff prepares regional specialties and international dishes using local ingredients.
Throughout the day, coffee, tea, juice, and fruit are available. Alcoholic drinks are available at your own cost. The daily meal plan generally includes a selection of fruit, granola, and yogurt before the morning yoga class, a big brunch afterward, a light lunch, and a fabulous, buffet dinner (vegetarian or non-vegetarian).
