Vida Asana School of Yoga specializes in yoga retreats, surf camps, and a healthy sustainable lifestyle. Their goal is to create a happy environment that supports education, mindfulness, and adventure.

Come rediscover yourself between the ocean and the jungle. Vida Asana was founded in 2002 and at that time was one of the first yoga retreat centers on the Pacific providing a combination of lodging, fresh (mostly) organic meals, yoga, surfing, and mountain biking vacations.

The guests enjoy a simple and mindful experience that is often lacking in their daily lives. They encourage their guests to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape while letting go and allowing their soul room to breathe.

They are also dedicated to the local community, both the guests and full-time residents often engage in garden building and other sustainable community-building programs. The current primary causes are BJJ Jaco and Costas Verdes. BJJ Jaco teaches the children the joys of physical fitness, discipline, and mindfulness, while Costas Verdes ensures this beautiful land is here to enjoy when they are older.

All rooms are less than a year old with a private bathroom, hot water, AC, ceiling fan, fridge access, and Wi-Fi.


You'll start each day with coffee, tea, and fruit available at 6:30 a.m.. Then, enjoy a daily yoga practice. Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m., lunch at 1 p.m., and dinner at 6 p.m.

In between, you'll have a surf lesson at a time that is dependent on the tides, with ample time to relax by the pool or in one of the quiet corners of the property.
