"wonderful instructor!"

Silvia was an incredible instructor and very in-tune with how to make small adjustments to deepen the poses. Gorgeous location and so relaxing to be doing yoga listening to monkeys, ocean waves, etc. Delicious bfast at Amor del mar hotel nearby! Overall great experience for the money

"Excellent yoga teachers and location. Accommodations :("

I loved working with Silvia and Dagmar. They made everything so easy and helped me arrange transport and excursions and incredibly fun surfing lessons with Mauricio. The yoga was really lovely, with convenient times that allowed for excursions before or after. I didn't do a class at NYA, but stopped by and the location is beautiful. The town of Montezuma is friendly and safe, with lovely food and great beaches. The breakfast included with the package is delicious and in a beautiful location. I was traveling alone, but made wonderful friends and would recommend this location to women traveling alone.

"Yoga/Surf vacation package December 2018"

Overall, the experience was wonderful! The yoga was really great - the teachers and the atmosphere were amazing. I liked the mix of vinyasa and yin classes. The surfing was great under the direction of Mauricio. Silvia was very timely in answering my questions and booked the massage and zip lining packages upon my request. I really liked Montezuma as well - it felt more authentic Costa Rican versus more Americanized tourist destinations. The food was very fresh and tasty! Each day breakfast was provided my Amor De Mar and it was delicious.

"Magnifique studio de yoga, hôtel minimaliste "

Les cours de yoga dans un lieu enchanteur au milieu des arbres à mangues et avec vue sur l’océan; les petits déjeuners étaient absolument délicieux; gentillesse de Silvia et Dagmar

"Can't wait to come back again!"

Thoroughly enjoyed our week doing yoga in Dagmar and Sandy's classes and surfing with Mauricio! Yoga pavilion was beautiful, open classes while listening to ocean waves, birds. Classes were excellent, miss them already. Dagmar was very helpful in answering questions and booking excursions (snorkelling to Tortuga Island). Surfing was fun, Mauricio was calm and encouraging, the best us riding waves in no time! Would recommend this vacation package to anyone looking for an action packed week but also with time to relax and enjoy the town and environment. Breakfast included in package was excellent as were all our dinners at the nearby restaurants. Would love to return here on vacation for the yoga and surfing and stay longer to further explore the area!

"Amazing trip-highly recommend "

Our time in Montezuma was even better than we expected for many different reasons:

-hotel: great views of the ocean, amazing staff, walking distance to everything in town

-yoga: yoga pavilion was beautiful, you can hear the ocean and all of the animals while doing yoga, instructors were great..some of the best yoga classes I’ve ever taken, the yoga classes were exactly what we needed to either start or end our day especially after long days surfing and hiking

-surfing: Mauricio was a great instructor who gives you a lot of practice time, a lot of our friends told us beforehand that it’s difficult to stand on the board during your first lesson but all of us were able to stand quickly, doing the surf lessons absolutely made our experience

-breakfast: exquisite food with so much fresh fruit and juices, you get a wide variety of options, you get a ton of food, we would spend our evenings discussing what we were going to get for breakfast the next day

-Montezuma: difficult to get to but once you’re there it is incredibly worth it. The locals are so friendly and we felt like we were a part of the community by the time we left, beautiful views everywhere you go, something new to do everyday

I would recommend this trip to any of my friends. This was our first bookyogaretreats and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. We can’t wait to come back!

"Excellent week"

The yoga classes were super. I wish Dagmar taught close to my home city! Breakfast at Amor Del Mar was a highlight every day. This retreat has attracted many solo travelers. It was awesome to make friends while there!

Carolyn Weddle

The proximity to the beautiful beaches and waterfalls was definitely a plus. The yoga studio was beautiful - nothing like listening to the sounds of the ocean during your practice! Surfing with Mauricio was incredible, especially enjoyed the monkey sitings and fresh fruit post surf!

"The Perfect Escape from NYC"

This was a great escape from the winter in NYC. Yoga instructors, Dagmar and Silvia have organized everything perfectly with the hotel owner, surf instructor, and breakfast spot. They also made sure to connect us with other people on the retreat so we could hangout outside classes. I was very fortunate to have private surf lessons with Mauricio and learned pretty quickly on how to surf. He is very patient and pays very closed attention to his students. 30 min hike to and from the surfing spot was exhausting but great to see the beautiful beaches in Montezuma. Yoga was great - perfect balance of a work out and meditation. Classes were not "hippie" or cheesy were I really appreciate. Breakfast was delicious and healthy. You can hangout on the hammocks during the day since it's at another hotel. I stayed in the house with shared bathroom. Overall it was good but could use some upgrades. Hotel owner, Costas, is very nice and helpful. My favorite thing about the housing and yoga studio is that you can hear the waves all day. Very special location indeed. Montezuma is a wonderful and small beach team with lots of activities to do on your free time. I would come back here in a heart beat!

"Magical week"

Montezuma is not exactly and easy place to get to - but it is so worth it. You’ll wake up to a view of the ocean, so yoga, go surfing, sit by a fire on the beach and meet incredible people.

"Excellent Retreat"

One of the best trips of my life. I went to the retreat alone and ended up meeting lots of other friendly and fun solo travelers that I had a great time with. The town is charming, the beach and water perfect, the surfing excellent and yoga superb. Can't say enough good things about this place and the people- a very special spot in Costa Rica.

"Life changing week in paradise!"

Everything about this trip was amazing, refreshing and welcoming. We not once came across someone who was not friendly and eager to help us. The locals in montezuma are some of the happiest and friendliest people I have ever seen. This is the perfect way to escape the hecticness of life and take a week to relax, explore, adventure and mentally reset. Montezuma is an isolated paradise where we immediately felt at home.

"Fantastic first surfing experience"

Surf instructor was excellent at helping each of us at our level. This was my very first time surfing and I caught at least 5 waves the very first day! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The rooms were very clean. Yoga classes were enjoyable and in a beautiful environment. Yoga instructors were warm and skilled. An easy place to visit and relax.

"7 Tage Yoga und Surfen"

Ich habe sieben wunderbare Tage in Montezuma verbracht. Yoga, Surfen, Unterkunft, Frühstück - alles war hervorragend. Sowohl beim Surfen wie auch beim Yoga kam ich als Anfängerin auf meine Kosten und bin davon überzeugt, dass es auf fortgeschrittenem Niveau genauso ist. Ich kann es wirklich nur weiterempfehlen!

"Yoga and surf"

Montezuma is a beautiful location. My room was very simple but with seaview and quietness. It also had a safebox, which is great since I spent most of the time outside. Los Mangos's staff was also very nice and helpful. Silvia's classes were great, I loved her vinyasa sequences and I miss her classes already! As for surf, Mauricio was also a great instructor, very careful. Between yoga, surfing and walking to Playa Grande, every night I was very tired and slept beautifully accompanied by the sea's sounds. I'd repeat the experience if I could.

"A week in paradise "

I had the most amazing week staying in Montezuma. The village itself is very charming. The yoga classes were perfectly balanced, surf classes with Mauricio were delightful and breakfast was delicious. I couldn't have wished for anything more.

"Pura Vida @ Montezuma Yoga"

Great people, wonderful yoga practice & superb location where the rainforest meets the sea! Dagmar & Silvia have created a fabulous yoga retreat in a perfect setting with outstanding classes geared for all levels, including amazing breakfasts, a fantastic snorkeling trip, an incredible massage and so much more...

"wonderful experience!"

The yoga is highly professional and they are really nice people doing it! I got sick for a couple of days and they were understanding and let me catch the missed lessons up later on since I extended my stay. They were wonderful teachers too. I had the Wellness package and I enjoyed the massage included extremely. You get a full body massage fo more than 1 hour and was just better than everything I expected.

The Hotel were you stay, Los Mangos, is as well wonderful. The people are nice, the bed comfy. Everything got cleaned daily. For the breakfast you can go to the Amor de Mar Hotel and they are very accommodating. The food is good and the give you a lot of it!

This was one of the most amazing and memorable experiences of my life and I highly recommend this retreat! Montezuma is a magical place and the experience as a whole is something I will treasure forever. The yoga classes were fantastic, our Spanish instructor was an absolute joy, the breakfast was incredible, and the massage was one of the best I have ever had! Silvia was incredibly helpful and responsive during the booking process and our stay.

"A week of bliss!"

There is no way you can find a more blissful, beautiful, and transformative place to spend a week. The whole experience was heaven on earth! The retreat itself was beautifully coordinated by Sylvie and we loved all the instructors and their fun variations in classes. The private class included was very tailored to myself and my friend’s individual needs. There was so much included - Wonderful/intimate yoga classes, an unbelievably delicious breakfast everyday with a view, the most beautiful cabins to stay in. An excursion was included and we had the best time going snorkeling and surfing in some of the afternoons. I actually felt like I was touched by an angel during my massage. At first my friend and I wondered what we would do for 7 days but Montezuma is so unbelievably beautiful there is no way to not go back. This is the first time I have ever went on a vacation and never had a doubt that I was in the right place - this is the best it gets! All around 100/10!

"Nice, relaxed escape "

I booked the yoga and Spanish package. We had yoga once a day for 90min. And I had a private Spanish class for 2h each day. Spanish was great. My teacher Sandy was very good and patient. We did a lot of conversation. Yoga was most of the days only once but if you wanted to go twice you needed to pay 14$. The vinyasa and yin classes were very good and the teachers are all very talented. One massage was included which was awesome!!!

The hotel was ok. First I stayed In a private room with shared bath but I changed to a private bungalow (Which was more than double the price) but I felt more comfortable. Breakfast was included and veeeery delicious. Owner of the hotel was very nice and friendly!

"A real must! "

The package I got for the full week was perfect.

The time for the yoga classes was great and the breakfast place was beautiful.

It was super hot and very dusty as the land was very deu but it was great to chill. Loads of wild life and lots of great places to eat.

I think there is only one ATM nearby, if you don’t have a car, so have this in mind.

People are generally very nice and friendly, I might need to return and explore more of the nature sights in the country next time, such a beauty of a little country!

"Successful first solo travel"

The yoga classes with Silvia and Sandy were super good!! They are both patient and helpful with people with little yoga practice as myself. The town is very quiet and a secure place to go if traveling alone, people are friendly and the town offers many adventurous things to do rather than yoga such as snorkeling, hiking and even whale watching!! :) An incredible experience!!! Hiking to the waterfall is another must. Breakfast was so good, the views from everywhere are awesome and the fact of being surrounded by the sounds and smells from nature just made this trip an experience to remember my whole life. Thank you so much Silvia!!! Great care from Giselle at reception desk and the cleaning lady as well. Thank you both :)

"Tolle Yogawoche"

Hier stimmt das Gesamtpaket. Ich habe in der gemütlichen Holzhütte vom Hotel Los Mangos gewohnt und konnte schon auf dem Balkon in der Hängematte oder im Schaukelstuhl zum Meeresrauschen gut entspannen. Yoga wird überdacht, aber offen gemacht, so dass hier die Atmosphäre sehr schön ist. Das Frühstück im benachbarten Hotel ist sehr lecker. Montezuma ist ein sympathischer kleiner Ort, der unbedingt zu empfehlen ist.

Colie Wasmund

from WI,

I attended my first even, yoga and surf retreat. Not knowing anything about Costa Rica and barely speaking the language I booked the yoga and surf package. I had lots of questions leading up to my trip which were all answered I. A very timely manner all the way up until I arrived at Los Mangos! The staff was friendly and greeted me warmly, my room was simple and had a great balcony to see the ocean and hear the waves as I fell asleep. I took full advantage of as many yoga classes as I could. Each instructor was amazing, I am no expert in yoga but the classes were filled with great instruction for all levels and even some playfulness to advance my practice. The surf lessons were incredible. I had such a blast and was able to get up on my first try! The daily breakfast that is served never left me hungry. There was a lot of variety to choose from. I would love to come back and would defiantly recommend the retreat. It was also very reasonably priced. Getting there was an adventure but now that I know the way I'd take the 25 min flight to and from Tambor airport and bus it to Montezuma. I loved my stay in Montezuma and felt really at home, safe and welcome.

Anthony Murphy

Amazing holiday! Lovely warm and kind people. The other attendees at the retreat made the retreat seem like a family!
