Escape to what has been named the most magical destination and the happiest country in the world, Costa Rica. Experience Costa Rica's breathtaking scenery in the lush, nature filled rainforest and volcanic, black sand beaches of Playa Hermosa. Practice yoga just steps away from the beach. Here in Playa Hermosa, your mind, body, and soul can't help but relax. Hermosa Retreats offers a relaxing, self-awakening experience that you can't pass up!
Hermosa Retreats luxury retreats are their forte. Let them pamper you to the fullest. Stay in one of their luxury vacation beachfront homes in Playa Hermosa. The gorgeous pictures do not provide these beautiful estates justice. Fully equipped with air condition in every room, hot water, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and gigantic community beachfront pool with swim up bar, you will never want to leave! For safety, the community is gated and has guards 24/7. Tucked about a half a mile down the beach from the town center of Playa Hermosa, these estates are private and quiet. Yet, they are close enough to restaurants, a supermarket, two bars and hotels.
Every morning, step out of your room onto your private yoga deck, steps away from the beach. Practice deep asanas through a Hatha Power flow. Attune to your highest inner self. In the evenings, renew and restore the body with meditation and Restorative yoga.
You will enjoy a two-hour stand up paddleboard tour.
