Your adventure with Believe Surf and Yoga starts at the beautiful lodge. It features a swimming pool and yoga deck surrounded by natural jungle, nicely appointed areas to relax and socialize, and a new kitchen to enjoy your buffet breakfast. The lodge is a three-minute walk away to almost everything you need; supermarkets, bars, shops, restaurants, and cafes (all accepting credit cards).

Upon arrival you will be added to the What’s App “Events Group”. Here you can sign up for a surf and the daily activities your Social Host Team has arranged for the day. Whether it’s a group outing to the Tide Pools, dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, or the infamous Pizza Night, you’re sure to have a great time. The free wifi throughout the lodge will keep you up-to-date on everything that’s happening!

There are four accommodation options for your stay at the lodge. Once you’ve requested your check-in and check-out dates, Believe Surf and Yoga will be able to confirm availability for the following rooms:

  • AC Lofts

The two-story loft is appointed with a king-sized bed, day bed, single bed upstairs, private bathroom, air conditioning, safe, and veranda.

  • AC Private Rooms

Appointed with a queen-size bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, and a private veranda.

  • AC Budget Rooms

Private room with one double or two single beds, air conditioning, semi-private shared bathroom, and a veranda.

  • Shared Dorm

The dorm is appointed with nine beds, fans, individual storage space, as well as three shared-bathroom facilities.

You are more than welcome to use the kitchen at any time during your stay. Basic supplies are provided.


Imagine the innate potential you have when you are at one with yourself and nature. Your hosts aim to provide you with new opportunities to elevate and explore yourself in a laid back and supportive atmosphere.


Start your day off right by enjoying a healthy and hearty vegetarian breakfast. Our beloved cook Maria will prepare gallo pinto, plantains, potatoes, eggs your way, pancakes, muffins, fresh fruits, granola, toast, and fresh Costa Rican coffee.


Free your mind and explore breath, movement, and philosophy on the yoga deck surrounded by jungle, wildlife, the sound of the ocean, and fresh air. Allow yourself to dig deep and expand your practice.

Believe Surf and Yoga offers four yoga classes daily at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. Styles offered:

  • Ashtanga Vinyasa
  • Hatha
  • Yin
  • Yang/Yin
  • Vinyasa

The 4 p.m. classes are fitness-based for those who want a workout! Styles offered:

  • HIIT
  • LIIS
  • Mobility Training
  • Fitness Yoga

The Yoga staff is an eclectic mix of people with one goal in mind- to give you the space to deepen your practice. Encouragement and support is the top priority, and our teachers are happy to meet you wherever you are in your journey.


After finding breath on your mat, find your inspiration on the water. Connecting with the sea is a truly magical experience here in Santa Teresa. The clear waters and ideal surf conditions make for unforgettable sessions.

We surf every morning at Playa Hermosa (about 10 minutes north of the lodge). This beach break is perfect for Beginners as it boasts typically mild conditions to refine your pop-up. Intermediates will enjoy the long green waves to practice turning, and Advanced surfers will appreciate the channel and long open-faced waves in the line-up.

No matter your level, we have a local instructor who knows the water inside and out who will ensure you have an experience that not only challenges you physically but mentally and emotionally as well. Find greatness in yourself while connecting with one of nature's great forces.

Free Time

Use this time to explore the area. Santa Teresa is not only known for its surf, yoga, and beautiful beaches, it is a health-conscious foodie dream! The nearby Fishermans Village in Mal Pais is sure to inspire you with their daily catch of yellowfin tuna, red snapper, and mahi-mahi.

There are many activities to choose from, including ziplining, hiking in one of the national parks, horseback riding, snorkeling, and fishing. Your host will be happy to arrange any tour that interests you.

Your hosts will also arrange events and activities every day of the week including special party nights, nearby adventures, themed food nights, live music at nearby restaurants, as well as group dinners.

Not quite your speed? Find yourself relaxing and unwinding around the lodge's beautiful pool (that gets the perfect amount of shade during the day) or at the beach across the street.

Retreat location

On the west coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, a few hours south of bustling Tamarindo, lies the charming town of Santa Teresa. Nestled between the jungle and sea, a town of Tico’s and ex-pats have completely embraced the Pura Vida lifestyle and have made Santa Teresa a must-visit spot in Costa Rica.

Enjoy all that the rich biodiversity has to offer, including fishing, hiking, diving, snorkeling, and much more. A two-minute walk away from the lodge is a great beach for surfing, yoga, and gathering with your friends to watch the world-class sunsets.

All of this creates a lifestyle that makes our guests extend their stays and return time and time again.

Doing a Canopy Tour in Costa Rica is a must-do experience! It's an ideal activity to enjoy with family or friends of all ages and physical abilities.

Visiting new places are also highly encouraged everyone to do. A few minutes away from Santa Teresa, there is a magical spot surrounded by pure nature. You will enjoy the waterfalls, freshwater, and a wonderful small town to hang out after the hiking and swimming experience. This is the perfect rest day in the middle of your surf week.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

The best option is to arrive at San Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in San Jose, Costa Rica. From SJO, you have many options such as land shuttles and local flights to make it to Santa Teresa.

The second option is to fly to Liberia Airport (LIR), in the northwest region of Costa Rica which is one hour away from Tamarindo and seven hours away from Santa Teresa.

Transfers from and to Liberia Airport (LIR), San Jose Airport (SJO), or Tambor Airport (TMU) are available upon request. Believe Surf and Yoga can also help you with your flight reservations if needed.

Before booking make sure you have planned your logistics from your arrival airport to Santa Teresa. Plan your arrival flight as early as possible to make it to the land shuttles or local flights on time.

Otherwise it may be necessary to schedule a night in San Jose, as there are no shuttles or flights during the evening (after 3 pm). Similarly, your departure flight should be planned the latest you can on your departing day so that you can leave your hotel in Santa Teresa early in the morning and arrive early in the afternoon to SJO for your international flight. Otherwise, you should plan your last night in San Jose and not in Santa Teresa.

Arrival by shuttle

Take a 25 minutes flight from SJO to Tambor (TMU). Once in Tambor (TMU), Believe Surf and Yoga will arrange a taxi (45 minutes) to bring you directly to the lodge. This one-way trip is $50 USD + tax.

Direct land shuttles depart from San Jose (SJO) and take up to 7 hours to arrive in Santa Teresa. This costs $60 USD + tax for a one-way trip. The shuttles leave San Jose early in the morning (6 a.m.) and arrive at midday. This shuttle will take you to the port of Puntarenas, followed by a Ferry to Paquera, and from there back into the shuttle for the final leg of your journey to Santa Teresa. In case you need to stay overnight in San Jose, Believe Surf and Yoga can arrange accommodation for the night and a shuttle or flight the next morning.

If you are flying into Liberia (LIR), you will have to take a land shuttle to Santa Teresa (5 hours). This service departs every morning at 8 a.m. and (sometimes) at 3 p.m. In low season it requires a minimum of two passengers to depart. The price is $60 USD + tax.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 40% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid on arrival.
