Retreat location

What sets this retreat apart from all of the others is the location. The Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is untouched. It is home to the most biodiversity, national parks, and rainforests in the world. Everything radiates with the aliveness here. From the bikeable coastlines to the lively town center of Puerto Viejo, this is the place to be. You will see sloths climbing up trees, macaws fly overhead, and an array of colorful butterflies. The is no better place for your healing journey than here.

Sonora Jungle and Yoga Retreat Center is a truly special retreat space. A newly built center tucked back in the jungles of Playa Negra, Puerto Viejo in the Caribbean. This neighborhood is peaceful, quiet, and has everything in one to have the real Costa Rica experience. Wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys and walk 20 minutes through the jungle to a pure black sand beach. The retreat space is isolated for a truly immersive experience, but with many days trips into town planned. The main town of Puerto Viejo is only a short 15-minute tuk-tuk ride away. Best of both worlds.
