    You will also receive four surf lessons and will have daily surfboard access at Santa Teresa beach. This retreat also offers free time to explore the beach and its surroundings. All these activities will be accompanied by daily delicious meals.


    Just at a four-minute walk from the lodge is the beach and a famous surf point. Santa Teresa beach has some of the best and least crowded surf area in the world. You have choices to the north and the south of the beach. The water is always warm and the waves are always big enough.

    This yoga and surf retreat will take place at the Funky Monkey Lodge in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. The hotel is located 200 meters away from three top surfing spots at Santa Teresa beach.

    Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are a pair of towns facing the Pacific Ocean, nestled into the coastal mountains of the Nicoya Peninsula, touching the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. The Funky Monkey Lodge is set back from the street for peace and quiet and it is surrounded by a wide variety of animals, particularly monkeys.

With my friend we felt at home from the first minute we arrive at the place! We found there a great team, always looking to make your journey as nice as it can be. We felt like if all the staff were our friends after one day! The food is exceptional fresh and healthy. Yoga classes absolutely fabulous, in the middle of the jungle, trust me this is very resourcing! And finally about the surf lessons, a huge thanks to the monitors!

      "Funky Monkey Lodge has it all. It has beautiful tidy accommodations, delicious food, friendly and funny staff, and great ambience! I stayed there for one week for my surfing camp with Pura Vida surfers and had a blast! The chefs cook the most delicious meals and make the best sushi in town. The dorms are spacious, clean, and you get free towels. The staff is always in a good mood and helps with anything it might need.The location is good as well as you have supermarkets, stores, restaurants, and the surfing spots are very close. I will definitely come back!"

      "I came for two nights and I ended up staying for six nights. I stayed in a fantastic room with a big balcony above the bar and restaurant, they are not noisy. My room didn't have air conditioner but I didn't need it as the two fans were quite good enough. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was great. "
