Refreshing Yoga Holiday in Costa Rica

Come visit the lush, wild, and wonderful Caribbean side of Costa Rica. After three years on the Pacific coast, Holman Health moved its yoga retreat to the less touristy Caribbean side. Tierra de Suenos (Land of Dreams) Wellness Center sits right in the middle of the Caribbean rainforest! The yoga holiday will take place at the beautiful Tierra de Suenos, but there will also have a relaxing first and last night of the trip at the lovely Adventure Inn. Holman Health has led over 60 retreats worldwide and loves bringing people together to explore the inner and outer terrain, to have fun, to share meals, to breathe a bit more deeply, and to celebrate life.

This friendly center is a delightful, quiet, and peaceful place located in the fun, tiny village of Playa Chiquita, a serene and lush jungle hideaway on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The rooms are made of local hardwood, with two beds in every room. They also have a beautiful yoga deck overlooking the jungle.
