Pavones Yoga Center is located 800 meters from the beach up a very steep hill. The center of "town" (more like a very small village) is right at the bottom of Alta Mira (the name of the road). There is a beautiful fresh water river, Rio Claro, near the entrance to the beach where you can cool off and chill out before heading back to Pavones Yoga Center.

Located at the southern entrance to the Golfo Dulce ("Sweet Gulf"), Pavones is a quaint, charming, and traditional Costa Rican town complete with centrally located soccer field across from the local canteen. The proximity to the Osa Peninsula means Pavones Yoga Center have the same abundant wildlife and lush, empty beaches ripe for exploring.

You will be served all meals beginning with dinner on July 7, 2018 and ending with breakfast on July 13, 2018. You will nourish and fuel your body with thoughtfully prepared meals from the kitchen of Pavones Yoga Center. Alex Lanau, with the help of the local kitchen staff, carefully sources organic produce grown locally in the nearby mountains of San Isidro. Hungry yogis share daily inspired and tasteful meals, delicious fresh squeezed fruit juices, and yummy deserts on site in the Pavones Yoga Center.

The local grocery stores carry basic food items and, in recent years, some surprising imports such as wasabi, soy sauce, tahini, and kalamata olives. This quaint town still receives vegetables and fruit via a "fruit truck" that arrives twice weekly, on Mondays and Fridays. Shopping out of the colorful fruit truck is an event in itself.

Pavones Yoga Center includes a large kitchen that you can either choose to stock yourself or which can be stocked prior to your arrival. Please send an inquiry to Pavones Yoga Center for a grocery list if you are interested in the latter option. If you are eating out, there is an excellent vegetarian café, two restaurants serving authentic Italian cuisine, several cevicherias (serving the local specialty of marinated fish with chopped veggies), and numerous Tico sodas.

Rice and beans are traditional side dishes that come with just about everything here. If you have specific dietary restrictions please send an inquiry to Pavones Yoga Center so that they can be sure to accommodate them.

    "I spent a month living at Pavones Yoga Center for my 200 hr yoga teacher training and feel blessed to have experienced such an incredible place. The hike up the hill became dear to my heart as every time it was a completely new and powerful experience. Once you set one foot onto the pavement into PYC you are immediately enveloped into a warm, safe, loving, harmonious energy that permeates your entire being. The staff couldn't be friendlier and they have an immense knowledge of yoga, nature, spirituality, art, things to do in Pavones, healthful eating, and much more. The studio itself, high on the hilltop, looks out over the ocean and the jungle, it often took my breath away. So its a good thing we focused on pranayama and yoga practice!! I give PYC my highest recommendation and send daily prayers to the universe that someday soon I will return. No words can really describe how magical it is and mine sure don't do it justice. Go see for yourself!At Villa Pacifica each room is equipped with its own bathroom (and yes, we have hot water). There are two large upstairs rooms with expansive ocean views where you can actually watch people surf from your bed. These rooms sleep up to four people. Downstairs there is one large room nestled into the jungle with a wrap-aroundporch and hand-placed circular stone shower. There are two smaller rooms for two people. These rooms each have private entrances and allow for a bit of seclusion amidst the shared group energy of Villa Pacifica."


    "All rooms have either a king-sized bed with orthopedic mattress (for couples), or twin beds. All rooms have ceiling fans.Air conditioning is optional although most people find the ceiling fans and large wrap-around windows provide the perfect climate. Air conditioning is not provided during yoga teacher training programs. It is included during any of our yoga and yoga-surf retreats. "


    "The rooms at Pavones Yoga Center are not equipped with televisions, Wi-Fi, or telephones. We like to think of your time with us as a chance to unplug. To enter a period of "digital-detox." Most people find that, while the simplicity of life without modern technology may be challenging at first, there is a subtle and delicate quality of inner contentment and peace that permeates your time at Pavones Yoga Center. This is ultimately aided by slowing down to nature's schedule and would be difficult to achieve amidst the faster pace of twenty-first-century plug-in amenities."
