Costa Dulce grew very naturally as an eco resort and did so in the middle of nature. Each of the 11 bungalows and cabins has been designed with surrounding trees and plants taken into account (in some cases the trees grow through the building). Each room is distinct giving ocean views and close to the beach.

All bungalows have been built to take advantage of the local Papagayo winds to keep you cool without using too much electricity. The eco-lodge grey water is processed and used to water the garden and grow food for guests.

The rustic luxury place is a modern day Robinson Crusoe house; hammocks with ocean views instead of couches with televisions and naturally cool rooms instead of AC. There are bugs around, as you are in the jungle after all, so don't be surprised when you come across wildlife close to the resort or passing through.

Program

Costa Dulce really is a utopia for surfers. Ideal conditions prevail each and every day. Reality for many surfers from pro to novato (beginner in Spanish) is their local surf spot is crowded. Too many people and limited amount of waves can make surfing really hard.

Here, you are in the sweet spot, just far enough away from town that you don't get too many extra people in the water, so most of the time it's just people staying at the resort. If you've ever had a surf lesson at a crowded beach, you will know the trouble of learning around a lot of people. Every experienced surfer knows the frustration of too many people in the lineup.

Wake up in the morning or not; thanks to the beautiful Papagayo winds. In many places around the world, you are restricted to surfing early in the morning and sometimes you get a little bit of time in during the afternoon. In southern Nicaragua, you get offshore winds 10 months of the year all day nearly all year long. The only things you have to work around is the tides and your massage appointment.

Your day can start early with not a care in the world, find your way to the dining area where the first breakfast waits for you. Fresh in season fruit, homemade granola, the best homemade yogurt, coffee, and tea are all available when the sun comes up.

Second breakfast buffet then awaits you with eggs, gallo pinto, pancakes, smoothies, etc. You won't have enough room on your plate, but no worries as you can just go back for more. If you are a vegan or vegetarian, they've got you covered and in style. Delicious family style lunch and dinner are to follow. Snacks are available all day and there will be desert after dinner.

If the waves are pumping and you won't be around for a meal, just let the people in the kitchen know and they will set a plate aside for you.

While Costa Dulce is really healthy, they also really enjoy a cold tona apres surf so there is an honor bar in the lounge. Help yourself when you feel the need 24 hours a day. Chilling out on the beach is easy thanks to the super convenient bar, Rancho las Tortugas, serving cold beers and the best margaritas around.

Every day, there will be an engaging activity to connect you to the environment and community; be it a jungle hike in the nature reserve or a trip to the nearby elementary school. If you just need to decompress, do nothing. Swing in a hammock or just lie on the beach. Sooner or later, you are going to have to get that included massage.

Here is where your soul gets to feel good. Something that is stressing everybody out is the state of the planet. By staying here, you are helping to save the planet. Part of the retreat price is a carbon offset, as you plant trees and help the nature reserve grow by visiting Costa Dulce.

Yoga class

With classes twice a day you never have to choose between surf or yoga.

  • Introduction to turtle conservation and opportunity to see release baby turtles

Retreat location

Costa Dulce is located at the beach and in the jungle, within a tropical dry forest half of the year and a full on jungle during rainy season. They share the environment with monkeys, sloths, snakes, iguanas, turtles, birds, and bugs. They are environmentalist at heart and do their best to minimize their impact on the surrounding beauty. At Costa Dulce, they pride themselves on their laid-back beach atmosphere. They try and include everyone, no exclusivity here.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) or Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA). Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA) is the most straightforward option. The team will arrange your pick up and bring you straight down to the hotel.

Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) is actually a little bit closer to the hotel but there is a border to cross which means a vehicle change. The drivers will help you through the borders making for an easy border crossing. The advantages to flying through Liberia is it's quite often cheaper and there are more frequent flights.

Transportation is not included but the team does arrange a private shuttle from Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA) for 110 USD and 120 USD from Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR). Since the retreats start on Saturdays, you should have someone to share the cost of the ride with so typically the price can be 35 USD and 45 USD respectively.
