For this retreat, you will be staying in the Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge, where it offers comfortable accommodations in an amazing setting.

Cabin suite

The new cabin suite is also very private and set apart from all other accommodations. Tucked into the rainforest affording you a unique feeling of being in an amazing natural setting, yet with design and comfort details that have been described as simple, yet jungle-chic. The cabin has a private entrance, beautiful hardwood floors, private open air shower-bathroom, private terrace, mosquito netting over the beds, ceiling fans, louver doors and windows that wrap around the room to afford panoramic views of the surrounding jungle.

The cabin suite is similar in size to the two bedroom cabin, but set in a large loft like room with a removable partition wall to add flexible space for families and groups. With the partition in place, it creates two large bedrooms that can accommodate four to five guests in a variety of bedding options. The cabin suite is also great for couples seeking more space, as well as the luxury of a comfortable sitting area, set up with a couch and chairs.

Jaguar house

This is a two-story and three-bedroom house surrounded by lush jungle. First floor has a living room, bedroom, and full bath with beautiful open air shower. The loft-like second storey has a master bedroom, second bedroom, full bath, and large open terrace. Let the crashing of the waves lull you to sleep!

Mango guest house

The mango guest house is a two-story accommodation that has four private rooms. It is set in a beautiful jungle garden area with mango trees on all sides and open views of the surrounding rainforest. Each room has private entrance, beautiful hardwood floors, private bathroom, private terrace, louver doors and windows that wrap around the room to afford panoramic views. Rooms have queen beds (or twin beds upon request) with mosquito netting and ceiling fans. The mango guest house is separate from the main lodge.

One bedroom cabin

These cabins are very private and set apart from all other accommodations. Tucked into the rainforest affording you a unique feeling of being in an amazing natural setting, yet with design and comfort details that has been described as simple yet jungle chic. Each cabin has a private entrance, beautiful hardwood floors, private open air shower-bathroom, private terrace, louver doors, and windows that wrap around the room to afford panoramic views.

Cabins have queen beds (or twin beds upon request) with mosquito netting and ceiling fans. The garden open air shower is within the cabin's bathroom, yet allows you to look at nature all around. Look out for the peeping monkeys!

Two bedroom cabin

This is a private cabin much like the single cabins, but larger with two bedrooms and a common den that can also be converted for another bedroom. This is a great choice for families, especially with younger children. The cabin is set at the edge of the jungle, but only a few steps from the main lodge building. Each cabin has a private entrance, beautiful hardwood floors, private open air shower-bathroom, private terrace, mosquito netting over the beds, ceiling fans, louver doors, and windows that wrap around the room to afford panoramic views of the jungle.

For this retreat, you will expect to enjoy a daily guided tour, with kayaking and snorkeling, and have the opportunity to have 10 yoga classes. This is a customized trip, where Marsha White Yoga Retreats will arrange the activities according to your preferences. Paddle boarding is also included, if you would like to do so. Only applicable for the March retreat, there is an introductory offer, where you will enjoy one day in the sweat lodge. This is their special gift to you without any charges.

    "What an amazing week we have had with Marsha in the rainforest. She did an amazing job scheduling fun and adventurous activities for us. Such a great mix to be in Costa Rica for all it has to offer and have our yoga also. And, what a peaceful place to be doing our yoga practice on the water. This trip has provided so many beautiful memories that I will cherish: waterfalls, dolphins, kayaking, SUP, focused and tailored yoga instruction, and such warm and caring and fun people. You attract what you set out and Marsha sets out love, caring, and peace."

    "Dearest Marsha, I started this journey with a lot of trepidation, am I ready for an adventure trip on my own, who will be there with us, how will the lodging be. It exceeded all my expectations! I found Marsha White Retreats from BookYogaRetreats. I loved the little group that became my little family for the short 5 days we were together! The planning and details you did have been a lot of work! The yoga was truly inspiring, (maybe a studio on the beach had something to do with it). You are an amazing beautiful strong person and I am thankful we met!"

    "Marsha, Thank you for your vision and enthusiasm. It was a great experience and I learned quite a great deal. I really didn't know what to expect with Bikram yoga and the rainforest on top of it, but it all fit together so well. It was a great combination. I know your yoga journey will continue and you will pass it on to others on your way, and they will benefit greatly."

    "Thanks to Marsha White, Norman and I were introduced to Nicuesa. In 2012, we took our first visit here and it was truly life changing. Nicuesa is extraordinary in every way. From the moment we reach the dock to the last evening. You can't help but learn at every turn. The staff is genuinely kind, thoughtful, and interested and passionate about sharing their knowledge with you. Thanks to Donna and Michael for sharing their vision and dream with all of us."

    "Thanks to Marsha White Yoga Retreats, I learned that balance, flexibility, and strength are probably the best anti-aging formula, which yoga Bikram provides, and that it is a lot better to practice by the ocean with no mirrors, I really loved the food, the people, and the whole experience. Kerry and Jenny are the funniest girls I have ever met and great athletes. Jennifer and I plan to come back again."

    "Three years ago, I was in a Bikram yoga studio at Fort Lauderdale when I saw a flyer advertising two of my most beloved things, Costa Ricaand Bikram yoga. I did not sign up at the moment, but then, one day about one and a half years ago you were the person who was offering the retreat, My husband, Kerry and I eagerly signed up. The past two years have been tough, but on this trip I was able to remove my even present knee brace and hike pain free. This place is magical. We will definitely be back."

    "This trip ranks among the top trips I have ever taken. Costa Rica is amazing, and Marsha is a fabulous guide and teacher. Practicing yoga outside as the sun rises over the ocean is a unique and magical experience. Your yoga practice will improve and you will have an amazing time hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, and otherwise, exploring the incredible rainforest. This trip should not be missed."

    "I feel fortunate to have studied under Marsha's tutelage so early in my practice. Although I am new to yoga, I have practiced incorrect postures. All of those who were amenable greatly appreciated Marshas's tenacity in helping us to keep the integrity of the postures and in taking us out of our cruise control yoga and forcing us to be present. I can't begin to explain how her teachings helped me to understand what I was missing in my practice."

    "Knowing that she were here only for a week, she could have let us continue practicing mindless yoga. I respect and admire her for instead persevering so that we could learn what she were willing and felt compelled to teach us. After four days of her instruction ,not only the yoga begin to make sense, but I now practice the violin with unexplainable ease. I am not suggesting it has become easy, but it is no longer thought of as an obligation. Obviously my mindset has changed. I am not quite certain which words made it all come together for me but, it was undoubtedly something Marsha said during one of our classes."
