Casa Marea Alta is located on Costa Rica's southernmost Pacific coast. Nestled at the edge of protected rainforest and only a couple steps to the beach, there is no better place to come relax, surf, and adventure than here. There are hammocks on the porch out front and you can walk around the side of the home to a fully-equipped kitchen that is ready to use. You'll enjoy your yoga classes on the open-air jungle yoga deck and experience being fully immersed in nature in the eco-friendly accommodations. Depending if you travel alone or with other people, you can customize your stay at Casa Alta and choose between private, double, triple, or quadruple rooms.

    Beth Anne is a 200-RYT, certified Thai bodywork practitioner, and certified Reiki level 2 practitioner. She currently resides in the beautiful Punta Banco, Costa Rica where she hosts private and group yoga retreats ocean front at Casa Marea Alta. She moved to Costa Rica in December 2014 from Michigan to share her passion of yoga with others. Since then she has had the amazing opportunity to help others come down to Costa Rica and share their yoga too.

Casa Marea Alta has plenty of nature, great weather, and stunning beaches. It is the perfect location for a relaxing and fun retreat. You will stay right on the Pacific Ocean and will be only steps away from the beach, which lies right outside the front door. To the back is a privately-owned biological reserve, which means that you will be surrounded by the jungle at all times. This gives you many opportunities to see three different species of monkeys, who come right up to your window, agoutis, over 300 species of birds, and much more.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at San Jose International Airport (SJC). This is by far the easiest way to get to Punta Banco. There are daily flights by Sansa Airlines and Nature Air that leave from San Jose International Airport to Golfito. Each flight takes about an hour. They can cost anywhere from 70 USD - 180 USD. Please keep in mind that both Sansa and Nature Air do have weight limits for baggage.

You can rent a car from the airport and drive down to Punta Banco. There are a lot of rental places in Costa Rica. To name a few: Solid, Alamo, National Car Rental, Economy, Budget, and AVIS. Prices vary dramatically.

Arrival by bus

You can take the bus from San Jose to Punta Banco, Costa Rica. Although very inexpensive, this bus ride can take upwards of eight and a half hours. That’s a long time on a bus. But you get to stop in some different places, eat some good food on the road, and save a few bucks.

From San José, you can buy a ticket at the Tracopa terminal (every taxi drivers knows where it is). If possible, Beth Anne Yoga advises you to buy your ticket a day in advance, because it can get crowded, especially in the weekends.

Take the 07:00 bus to Golfito, which arrives there around 14:30. This trip costs about 12 USD. From Golfito, take the bus to Pavones at 15:00. It departs near the supermarket across the street from the hospital. This is about a two to three hour trip and costs around 2.40 USD.

In case of a lack of time, you can get off the bus at t-junction kilómetro 14 (between Golfito and Pavones) and get on the Pavones bus there. Whatever you do, make sure you are on that bus, because it only goes to Casa Marea Alta once a day. You’ll arrive in front of Tiskita (which is a lodge located directly next door to the venue) around 18:00.

To return to San Jose, buses depart Pavones daily at 05:30 and 12:30 for Golfito. They depart Golfito in front of the Deposito Libre at 05:00 and 13:30. The trip takes about eight hours and costs 12 USD.

Arrival by taxi

If, by any chance, you miss the last bus to Pavones, you can take a taxi from Golfito to the Casa Marea Alta, which will cost you around 80 USD. Beth Anne Yoga is happy to arrange this taxi for you as well.

  • Review by Alina Chmielinski

    "My stay at Casa Marea Alta was amazing! Truly an unforgettable experience. I had never been to Costa Rica before, and I immediately felt at home. Beth and Clyde are both extremely warm, hospitable, and welcoming people. As it was my first time in Costa Rica, they took the time to show me around Punta Banco and explain different plants, fruits, wildlife, culture to me. The yoga classes were fantastic…Beth is very knowledgeable and patient, she really tailors her classes to exactly what you need. My nature walk through the Tiskita jungle with Clyde was incredible…so many different plants, trees, and monkeys! The accommodation is very clean and simple, perfect place right on the beach. The food is great too! I still crave the fresh fruit and eggs in the morning. Thanks for a life changing experience, Beth and Clyde:) Pura Vida!"

    "The best thing I did this year was to convince my boyfriend to join me on a couples yoga retreat in Costa Rica. It was amazing; Beth was such a good instructor and truly made our week yoga experience fun and unforgettable. We've been doing the partner Thai bodywork she taught us almost every day! Thanks Beth! Can't wait to come back."
