The Grounds

Just a step off the strand at Playa Hermosa, Bistro Las Olas and the Las Olas deck are favorite hangout spots for locals and guests alike. Peppered with swinging hammocks and cozy seating, the lower deck of this Costa Rica yoga surf retreat is perfect for wave watching or a nice afternoon nap downstairs, while the upper deck is a space for daily yoga, contemplation and meditation, as gentle ocean breezes float through. Up the walk from the beach, bistro and deck, a free form pool is nestled in between the rancho cabins and the main house, inviting guests to take a refreshing plunge for a brief respite from the lush, tropical heat.

The Ranchos

Closest to the beach, the ranchos are two story A-Frame cabins that can accommodate groups or families. Each rancho has one bunk bed and a single bed downstairs as well as a double bed and a twin upstairs. With a balcony on the top level and patio on the ground, each rancho has a refrigerator, private bath with hot water and a lock box. Screened windows, ceiling fans and ocean breezes keep everyone comfortable.

The Main House

The first floor room is located just above the pool, facing the ocean, and features one double bed, a single bed, private bathroom, and air conditioned. The two Cabinas found on the second floor contain a double bed and two singles, sleeping four people each. Spacious and simple, the second floor Cabinas have a private bathroom and an ocean-view balcony.

The Sky Box

Perched up in the third story of the main house, the sky box is open to the ocean break and guests will fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing. There is a loft with a double bed and the main floor of the Sky Box features a bunk, seating area, small kitchen and a private bathroom with a hot shower. Balconies to the back, facing the ocean, and to the front, facing the street, open the space and allow cool breezes to wash through.


Come live the healthy lifestyle of surfing and yoga in harmony with Costa Rica's beautiful 'pura vida' lifestyle. Daily yoga classes focus on balance and strength while counterbalancing key areas and cultivating the mindfulness and embodiment needed to successfully and safely negotiate a wave. Yoga and surf share a deep respect for Mother Nature and together offer the confidence and grace to fluidly ride lifes big waves. No previous surfing or yoga experience required. Surf lessons and breaks available for all levels. Whether you have been surfing your whole life, or exploring surfing for the first time, or just interested in the pura vida life style, we would like to share this Las Olas experience with you.
