The retreat will take place at Believe Lodge, two minutes from the beach and in one of the best spots of Santa Teresa. The place is surrounded by tropical gardens and nature. There is a very nice chill-out common area where breakfast is served every morning. The yoga deck is one of the main points of the lodge, with enough space for 16 yogis and a very nice view of the pool and nature all around.

Believe Surf and Yoga hosts both surf and are yoga travelers so the lodge has that one-of-a-kind of vibe for solo travelers who like to socialize and share their experience with others. All private rooms are air-conditioned. Some of them feature a king size bed, while others feature full beds and single beds. There is also the option of staying at the spacious shared dorm room with enough space for eight travelers.


Believe Surf and Yoga's program will start each day with breathing exercises followed by an energetic morning practice. Thereafter, you will be served a tasty breakfast before you go out and explore and enjoy beautiful Santa Teresa. In the afternoon, there will be another calming and soothing yoga class that will help release any built-up tension.

Santa Teresa is an ideal destination for those who are looking to connect deeply with nature and themselves.

It is located in the Nicoya Peninsula, on the west coast of Costa Rica, very close to Malpais and some hours south from Nosara and the busy Tamarindo. Founded by local communities only some decades ago and slowly grown into a surf and yoga community, Santa Teresa hosts a unique mix of Ticos (Costa Rican people) and immigrants from all around the world who have turned this place into a very special spot on earth.


Daily breakfast at the lodge's chill out area is included in the retreat price. Breakfast includes fresh fruits, cereals, dairy and almond milk, toasts, cream cheese, jam, eggs, pancakes and the typical gallo pinto (local style rice and beans).

  • Water
  • Coffee

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

Things to do (optional)

All-terrain vehicle tour

You can start your engine and get ready for an adventure. Lots of fun, you can drive all over, even make a trip to the close-by Montezuma waterfalls.

Canopy tours

Do you want to explore a unique and adrenaline-filled environment? Fly through the treetops hundreds of meters in the air with a chance to spot some of the diverse wildlife. Do not miss this great adventure!


Malpais is a small fishermen town. They take off every morning from the small natural port searching for the catch of the day. Take a full morning off, enjoy a wonderful journey along the coasts of Malpais and Cabo Verde Natural Reserve, and be part of the fishermen crew for some hours. And of course, you can have cooked the catch in the evening, or you can just practice sport fishing.


You can take a stroll along the seemingly endless white sand beach or visit some nearby national parks such as Cabo Blanco National Park and Cabulla National Park. You will see amazing tropical trees and flowers, exotic fruits, monkeys, red foxes, boas, and many birds.

Horseback riding

Nothing compares to running a horse along a tropical beach, watching the sunset on the horizon, or making a tour in the jungle, on the beaches, and into the mountains.

Kayak adventure and fishing

You can enjoy scenic kayaking in the Pacific ocean or paddle up the close by rivers, exploring the jungle and its wildlife. Catch fish from your kayak and explore the steamy underwater volcanoes below you during your tour.

Monkey watching

You will spend your mornings or evenings watching the howler monkeys traversing the beautiful vegetation on the accommodation surroundings.

Montezuma waterfalls

A few minutes away from Santa Teresa, there is a magical spot surrounded by pure nature. You will enjoy the waterfalls, fresh water, and wonderful small town to hang out after the refreshing experience.

Stand up paddle

Stand up paddle is an exciting sport that is a true full body workout. Enjoy an alternative to surfing by using a paddle. It is easy to learn and suited for all levels of skill.
