Tiskita Lodge

On the last 3 weeks, you will be staying at Tiskita Lodge. The rooms are either in single, double, or triple occupancy. The cabins were built using precious woods like Mahogany, Purpleheart, and Rosewood. The wood was collected over the years mostly from trees that fell down in Tiskita. All cabins are only a few minutes walks away from the lodge, the rainforest, and the beach.

The cabins are spread out around the lodge and landscaped to ensure privacy. Tiskita’s small number of cabins also helps to ensure privacy. Each cabin is surrounded by trees that attract birds, butterflies, monkeys, and other wildlife, making the cabins’ decks often one of the best spots to relax and watch the wildlife go by.

Includes:

  • A beautiful and quiet yoga shala immersed in the Costa Rican jungle and at Tiskita with a view of the Pacific Ocean
  • Tiskita has a swimming pool, a small library, and other facilities. When you lounge by the swimming pool, birds, monkeys, sloths, and the resident iguanas are usually around
  • Healthy food offered by the restaurant
  • A waterfall in both lodges and freshwater pools are located nearby the lodge, it also offers trails and a private biological reserve and the organic orchard also starts at the lodge
  • Coffee, tea, tropical fruit juice, and filtered water are available at the lodge throughout the day, free of charge
  • You will be within walking distance to the most famous Pavones beach during the last 3 weeks of the training!
  • Nature walks, bird watching, snorkeling boat trip available, horseback riding tours, surfing, night nature tours, beach and water activities.
  • There is no music at the lodges, the only sounds are the nearby nature, ocean, and the wildlife
  • Games area: In between the lodge and the self-service bar is a games area with a mahogany ping-pong table, a pool table, and a chessboard
